Grapevine TX
I'm Eric and like the title states I reside in Grapevine TX.  I currently have this little fella and just completed my Salt Lick inspired back yard open pit. Here is a pic of it during construction
.  I've got a couple of years experience w/ my trailer and several years experience w/ an electric smoker, but the open pit, will be a first.  I fell in love w/ the Salt Lick the first time I went to Driftwood back in 1998 and always wanted my own open pit and now I do.  I look forward to learning great recipes, different tricks and any info on cooking and smoking over an open pit.
Hey Eric, welcome, nice looking smoker and pit, Post some pictures of the finished pit with some Q, do you use the other smoker?

I have a good friend who lives in Grapevine, really like that area, I can remember when it was just a wide spot in the road, way out in the country.

Hey Gary, I will certainly get some pics of the new pit in working fashion!  I'm getting a grate created now, so hopefully by the end of the month I'll run my first fire through it.  I use my smoker quite a bit, it's parked up here at work, so we try to fire it up at least once a month if not more.  I love Grapevine, it's a great town! One of sales guys is from Whitehouse do you know BJ Kelly by chance? 
Doesn't ring a bell, but I'm terrible with names. Looking forward to seeing it fired up, Probably have the whole neighborhood watching and waiting.
