Default A Cinderblock Pit Cook

I hosted a birthday party at my place over the 4th weekend. I agreed to provide the meat if everyone brought side dishes.

I wanted to use the block pit but wanted to cut down on time so I smoked 4 butts and a brisket the day before on the Memphis Pro and my drum.
Then set up the block pit the morning of the party...

This is the block pit I used for whole hogs.







I used beer, dry rubs and leeks in my drip pans..



added the grate...




then a third row of blocks and the meat..



I brushed the pork ribs with bacon drippings and seasoned with dry rub...
added a pot of pintos.



went with the 3-2-1 method on the ribs (kept it simple )



added the pulled pork with drippings and beef broth to keep it moist.. and also added the brisket..





the pulled pork and buns for sammiches...



brisket, ribs, sauce...



someone brought mashed potatoes and gravy :)









there's a bit more detail on how I used the block pit on my blog... http://cowgirlscountry.blogspot.com/...t-cooking.html

I use it the same way for cooking pigs, just add a few coals to the ends of the pit every 30 to 45 minutes. It maintained a temperature of 225F for this cook.

It was a fun day and everybody went home full. :)

Thanks for looking!

Oh boy! That is what the greeting party in heaven will look like!

How long did the hog in the photo take, and those 2 piles of coals,
what did they hold the cinderpit at?

Really really wonderful. Thanks for starting a Monday off with some good photos!

That looks farking amazing - you are just too much! There's a part of my yard where my kids' fort is, & while I'm definitely in no hurry for them to grow up, I've got my eye on that spot for a brick pit - I'll try the cinderblock thing first - awesome!

Thanks Brian! :) The one in the pic took about 9 hours. I've had them take as little as 8 and as long as 10 to 12.. depending on the size of the pig and the outside air temperature. One deer season I cooked a small pig and it started snowing.. the pig took forever.
The pit stayed at 225 for this cook I used a remote thermometor this time to keep track. I add 10 to 15 coals each 30 to 45 minutes to maintain the temp. Thanks again...

I hope you do! They are an eye sore in the yard but they are great pits and sooooo cheap. Thanks! :)

Thanks Ryan! I didn't take pics of the desserts, they stayed in the house so they wouldn't melt.
