    Hello from Spain

    Hi everyone, I’m Venezuelan currently living in Spain. I started grilling 6 years ago when I began my business Los Parrilleros. I moved here 2 years ago and at this time my interest about barbecue grew up, I began reading books and now I have a propane tank to convert it in an offset smoker.

    I’m trying to go to the U.S. for learn in a good barbecue joint.

    I opened my business here for catering at the moment but I’m working for make it a restaurant. I really appreciate if anyone wants to follow me in “losparrilleros.es”

    P.D. Sorry if my English isn’t good.

    Welcome to the Pit from Huntsville, Alabama, US. Glad to have you onboard!

    I cannot give much advice about converting a propane tank into a smoker, but there are several folks here that have done that. As an engineer I understand the steps involved, but have not personally done it, as I am using a small offset smoker my father (also an engineer) had one of the guys in his shop weld up back around 1985. I love everything about BBQ and outdoor (and indoor) cooking in general, and look forward to seeing what you are cooking up across the pond in Spain. I imagine the folks there will appreciate the Venzualean flair you add to your BBQ as well.

    One of our very active members Ahumadora builds smokers. He might have some advice.

      Thanks for your recommendation! One of the things that I love about BBQ is all the history about it. An offset smoker from 1985...wow I was born in 86 and the smoker is the same.

      Welcome to The Pit. Your English is better than some native speakers, so don't worry about it. We have one member who has done exactly what you want to do. His handle is PaulstheRibList , and there is a long post where he details his journey to opening a successful restaurant:

        Welcome to the group. I have a good buddy from Venezuela who currently lives in Amstetdam. Not sure if this place in Caracas is still open but had the best steak of my life there Lee Hamiltons.

          Yes! Lee Hamilton was one of the greatest steakhouses in Caracas, I always remember my best t-bone there. Unfortunately is closed or I think it is.

            Salutations from Hays, Kansas! I imagine someone will
            be along with answers to your question.

            I will also say your English is much better than my Spanish. Looking forward to seeing and reading about your cooks.

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                  The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
