First time using open pit-Need Help
I have a family event that my dad wants me to help cook for. Problem is that I will need to fly home so I can't take my uds. We decided to build a pit and BBQ on it instead since it would be most convenient and cost effective. As I've never cooked on one I'm a little nervous but am looking forward to it. If anyone has an info that would be helpful ie.. Dimensions, materials, techniques etc. Looking to cook either pork butt or do pulled beef for about 100 people. Thanks.

This is my go to method for whole hog cooks, been doign it for years. I usually go even cheaper for it and extend a few pieces of rebar between a row of blocks to support the hog, and use some sheets of metal roofing to cover it.

I usually burn down some oak in a separate fire, and shovel the coals in as needed to keep the fire somewhere in the right ballpark temp.
