    I used a molasses brine, a no salt rub and vinegar base finishing sauce. The Picnic was a wild hog provided by my MOFO Chris that he shot and quartered. MOFO (Men Of Families Organization)

    [​IMG]How do you clean it out? Stand on your head or will the pit come out easy?

    22.5 Weber lid. I found the grill on C-list for $20. It came with the chimney starter, what a deal!

    Thanks everyone. Clean up is relatively easy. I take out the cooking rack, then the terra cotta diffuser and the rack it sits on, charcoal basket and finally I lift out my ash pan (another 14" terra cotta saucer). Sometimes I use portable dustbuster to get leftover ash. That's it!

    I imagine it's the same with regular sized UDS.
