OK I always see the word pit-master thrown around and in my opinion we are all masters of our own pits. Well today I think I mastered another mans pit. A friend of mine asked me to cook for his kids birthday party and I said sure then he said lets cook enough for 50 people and I said no problem. I have a friend at work who let me use his pit. I have always wanted to try his pit it is a homemade fraken-pit. The pipe is 1 inch thick and it held temp like a champ. The firebox was in the middle and it looks like a third grader welded it. I love it it has personality and proves that you do not need a 10000 rig to turn out great que. My wife is my cooking partner or maybe it is the other way around. Oh and we had some Yard Bird too!!
