New from NorCal

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. New here. Running with a Brinkmann Gas/Charcoal Dual Function that I modded to hook a side firebox from a similar model up to. Still trying to work out the kinks. My buddy treats me to awesome smoked deliciousness from his Traeger but I want to do things the Charcoal/Lump way. Eventually ill graduate to a bigger dedicated rig but I want to get the hang of things first. Been using this Brinkmann for around 4 years for grilling so I figured I'd just mod it to start with and go from there. Did some baby backs but had some issues with low temps and wasn't able to finish them all the way after 5.5 hours (200F), but more on that later.

Here's my pit.

Here's a butt I did for 4 hours with coals in the cook chamber before I added the offset. Came out great.

Had to tape up grill for temp control before I added furnace rope.

lol sorry meant "loin" not "butt".  I'm new at this.  I basically grilled that thing so it took 4-5 hours at 325-350.  Still pretty big,  Chopped it up in slices and provided sauce for guests to use if they wanted.  I just ate it as is cause the rub I bought from the store was good.  Soon I will graduate to mixing my own rubs.

We love to poke and have fun around here!  There are so many great commercial rubs and sauces out there.  You will find the right one for you and your family.  There are lots of great ones here in the Rubs and Sauces part.  Some of the members have done some great ones.  Try them!
