Hello from NYC

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. My name is Vinny and I'm from the forgotten boro of Staten Island, NY. I'm fairly new to the smokin' scene (dabbling in it for about a year), but I'm looking to start doing some serious smokin' soon.

Right now I'm using my 22.5 Weber Kettle and a 3 Burner Weber Gas Grill to do most of my BBQ/Grilling. I'm looking to build a pit of sorts using some 8x8x16 cememt blocks I have (roughly 4 dozen) so I'll be asking advice on design and additional materials to use.

I've done a little looking around and already have the feeling that this could become a serious addiction, very quickly.

Hi Vinny, Welcome to the forum! I do have a cinderblock pit..it works great. I use mine for large cooks or roasting pigs. You might be talking about a permanent grill?

Hey Vinnie - fellow New Yorker here (upstater). I also have dabbled, but want to get serious. Good luck with building your pit!!! Please keep us posted, I have a decent size yard, and have thought about a pit as well. But, having my Weber and Smoker already, my wife might give me a little trouble about building a pit :)

Good luck
