The Old BBQ Pit

  1. Old Fire Pit
    Here are some pictures of an old fire pit my dad made in 1942. It has been sitting without use since the mid 60's. I decided to revitalize the old pit into a smoke house. Although it sent me way over budget, I decided to construct it in my dad's memory.
    I thought the pictures may give someone some ideas as to construction, and also someone might see some mistakes that I have made. Please feel free to post any suggestions on construction.
    Thanks Dennis

  8. Thanks All for the kind words. I need to get some up to date pictures of the inside, as it is now well broken in and black with some hard smoke. I have done 6 sausage smokes, 3 poultry/ham smokes, and 3 snack stick smokes, oh yea I almost forgot Ive also done 2 bacon smokes. All turned out just a pinch short of super fantastic.
