major props

Patty - this was an awesome post with the qvue of your cookin' hole! The only time I've ever seen pit cooking was in Hawaii when I was at a luau watching them uncover the pig that was cookin' away all day (or so they say).

I too love to fish but don't go very often, as my love is more specific to deep sea fishing. Have started to surfcast from the beach, but always worried I'll snag a swimmer. PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

Great job!

Thanks Ron and Laurel!
Laurel, I do pigs too, but try to get them in the ground by 10 PM...then let them cook overnight.
Haven't done one in awhile, the cinderblock pit is spoiling me.....(no digging)biggrin.gif

All looks great Patty, gives me some ideas I'd like to try. Never cooked underground before, but hey I never shot down a missle till the first time either. Been busy at work and may have missed this in an earlier post or thread, but could you tell me a bit more about hoppin John? Never heard of it before but it looks like something I'd like to try. Again, great pics and storyline. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

We do a lot of pit cooking when we go camping. Last time we had a big get together we had 7 dutch ovens full of roasts and stuff. I swear I had to cut and burn dang near a cord of oak! I love putting it in the hole and going fishing for a few hours. A great way to have great food!

Cowgirl, I missed this post yesterday. You made me pretty hungry when I saw your pictures. You are the greatest and I have said it all along....you are my favorite. Now I have to get into the kitchen and make me some hopping john with cornbread. You always make me drool one way or the other. you know what I mean. I am going to have to try that underground cooking sometime. We will be caming during the 4th of July and I will get the young boys to did me out a hole to cook in for sure. As unsual you have done a good job again. Lots of love.

Thank you Crockadale! I love black eyed peas too.

ScrapIron, isn't it a handy way to cook!

You two need to get a room!! biggrin.gifeek.gif Looks great Patty!! Never have tried this under ground cooking. How do you know how long to leave it "on"? Also, doesn't the lack of air/oxygen put the fire out? Hey, if you head to Florida to share some rum, don't forget to invite Monstah back down. The three of you together would be dangerous!!!

LOL Shelly!!

I've cooked in underground pits for some time, but usually on a larger scale. I just guesstimated on how long I thought this would take, considering the amount of hot coals I had in the pit too.

When cooking underground, you do not want any air seeping in, you could have flames. The idea is to have a deep enough bed of hot coals to last for the time you will need.

I think you and Monstah BOTH need to meet me in Florida for rum on the beach! Wouldn't that be fun! LOL! Maybe we could find a wedding to crash.biggrin.gif
