Here is page about Top Hat BBQ. In central Alabama ordering BBQ you say inside, outside or mixed meat. I always ordered outside at my favorite place in Homewood AL.. This short video on this page talks about how this forrm og barbequing is fading away. Worth a watch. About halfway down the page. Other good stories as well.

Real BBQ with real people, no hipster glam and no long wait in line to eat meat.

The common site in the open pit style was a garden hose hug next to the grate to spray down any hot spots.
Interesting too in and around Birmingham was the number of restaurants started by Greek families. Not Greek food, but barbeque, steak, and hotdogs. Hotdog places are a big deal in the Birmingham area when I lived there.
