Sad little meal for such a big pit - but it's what I got to show for now...



Cevaps aren't so bad, the pit was just destined for greater things.
Anyone know a welder? I think I need a more impressive cooking surface.
It was meant for pig on a spit - but open fire cooking would be cool with a more massive grate...

I can do a million skrimps!  :P  (that's a brethren reference)

Seriously - I have a pork problem. Just seems to be so forgiving - it's soooooooooooo hard to screw up pork.

Pretty sure Cap is gonna hook me up - I've seen pictures of his artwork - pretty cool stuff.

You guys are makin' me jealous!  :)

I would love to build a brick or stone bbq pit. The old world appeal is inviting...not to mention the awesome Q that could be made.

Great pics by all of you. Thanks!

Why not just make one out of rebar?  It would be good enough for the whole pigs that thing is sized for :)

I have a setup for spinning two pigs already. Actually built the pit around the setup to make sure it all fits.
The grate in there is already 36", it looks less than impressive in there. Works fine - it's brand new.
I just want something custom, to fit the pit. Shipping a cover for it would be out of the que$tion.

You could always build an imu to cook your pigs in.  No grate needed.  You do need banana stumps and leaves, and ti leaves though.

Surprisingly, I don't really have access to that here in Chicagoland!  :'(
Oh, and I'm not really sure about exactly where or how deep the septic lines run - could be ugly.

No bananas or ti in Chicagoland?!  huh... go figure.  Perhaps the septic lines could substitute,  hmmmm...   ;)

Did someone say pork?

Perfect time of the year to order an acorn finished hog for roasting!

Without a doubt the most delicious pork you will ever have the opportunity to eat.
