Names Mike and I'm from the Houston area. Been grilling and BBQing for quite some time now. I have a OKJ Longhorn pit. I have used it about 7 times over the past year. I use lump hardwood coal with pieces of either Mesquite, Hickory or Pecan. I have just made a coal basket and have ordered sealant and lavalock gaskets. Looking to do a few more Mods to it.
