Uh Oh! City boy & Grill

Hello BBQC,

Im Jay, originally from Bronx, NY. now living in Connecticut. I've always loved to cook and ever since I got my own place I've loved grilling. As I continued to do more outdoor cooking one of my co-workers introduced me to REAL BBQ'n (or what I atleast look to as real)
He had a complete trailer setup and cooks for town fairs and does amature events etc.. Needless to say I was hooked and ever since that day and I been learning/respecting BBQ'n as a hobby and damn near being a science/art. I have to admit it takes way more effort then I thought.

Well, I did some research and decided that I wanted to get a nice pit that could do it all, something practical yet good enough to fire up quickly for the occasional burger or two. So after looking at different models and type etc, I noticed that for my experience level I can't go out and spend almost a grand on a custom setup that my eyes drooled over.. Also with the wife & I expecting TWINS!! meant I was on a budget.

Well I ended up finding a model I liked from Smoke and Hollow, it was perfect for my budget and more than enough grill to learn and experiment with- while learning some techniques from you guys here on the boards. I know its not the greatest but I havent had any issues and the build quality was very pleased compared to others with similar (better name brand pits) in my neighborhood.

So here it is:



And here is the 1st Pork Shoulder I did on it this past weekend, I came across some mistakes during the 10 hour cook, but they were very helpful to come by none the less.

My own personal rub


10 hours later


Nice and pulled


OK well, I look forward to learning and seeing what this forum has to offer. Thanks in advance to all who help me along the way.
