I'm interested in doing this once my wife and I get a place up in KC... but I've never done it.

Anyone got any advice?

Isn't that like a hole, that you stick your meat in

Indirect cooking.

Boneside down.

Trust your Weber.

Seriously, FMB. BBQ success, IMHO, is 90% fire management/time.

If you can design a pit that can manage air intake well enough to control heat in the cooking chamber, all you lack is finishing up. I have never seen a "pit" that could control fire management to suit me.

A full-blown smokehouse is another story, but I am guessing you are not talking that level.

I can see a container twice as large as need be, but I would love to see a permanent pit design that affords me the air control as my Weber.

The Weber will be much easier to throw in the U-Haul than your pit, if you should decide to make another move.

It is a noble and worthwhile mission that you are on, godspeed.

No, that would be a pu$$y and/ or mouth... and for some, backdoors. But men like you wouldn't know that.

That's more of a man's job, ask Phob. Her knows how to please his women, per Pink.

Call up the Agri teacher at your nearest high school and ask him if he has any students who are building them as welding projects.

Seriously, we used to call my agri class Bar-B-Q pit 101 cause there'd always be about 50 people building Bar-B-Q pits....that's out of a school of 300..most of the pits would just stay there unused.
