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.
