Newbie from San Jose

  1. Hey everyone,

    I'm Brian from San Jose, CA. I'm a pretty good cook but novice smoker. I wasn't happy with the results from my bullet water smoker so I decided to build a cinder block smoker. I'm hoping to use the fire box side as a poor man's pizza oven too. 

    I put up an album if you're interested in checking it out. So far I've just done a test fire and a single rack of baby backs. I'm going to hold off on trying anything hard like brisket until I really understand how to regulate the heat in that thing.

    Anyway, looking forward to connecting with my fellow bbq enthusiasts!

    Brian, welcome to SMF!  Glad you are here and sharing your experiences.  We're looking forward to pics of your build and what you smoke on it.

    Have fun!
