Hi everyone, I am an absolute newbie to smoking. I have been using a homemade contraption made of cinder blocks and expanded steel and burning wood from around the property here as fuel for it. I used this both as a grill and a BBQ / smoker by simply covering it and controlling temps when BBQ ing and smoking. 4' by 8' so I would keep the smolder at one end while meat was at the other. It's the best I could do being that I am a poor person financially speaking and had to make due with what was available. I am 48 and reside in south central PA. USA.

Allerb, welcome to SMF!  We are glad you are here.  There is absolutely NOTHING wrong and everything oh-so-right with the homemade smoker/grill you've made.  ​Congratulations on using what you have available to turn protein into yummy goodness.  I hope you get lots of new ideas here on the forum for what to throw on that baby to keep it exercised and happy.


Have fun!

Welcome Allerb! Some of the best BBQ I've eaten came off a rig just like you described. Man, the Brisket that fellow made was delicious. It's  all in knowing your equipment and controlling your heat.
