Don't over think this one. From where you are take a weekend trip down the east coast of NC. Small towns, Mom and Pop places and recommendations from the guy at the gas station. Look for a smoke house out back with a roof and screened sides. If you want a true down east pit it will be brick or block, no solid floor, no chimney, and chain link fence gates and rebar. Over the meat will be burlap bags and old metal roofing. Also look for a picnic table outside and a big stack of split oak. Most of these folks are more than glad to show you around.

Anyone know what happens to the grease in the Texas style ones? Is that concrete under there like where they sit or sand like Bludawg is talking about?

I'd like to see some pics of those old backyard pits that were popular in the 50's and 60's. Remember those brick pits with heavy grate on top and the tall chimney in back? I always thought those were cool as hell.

Well, somebody could start a thread asking for pictures/designs of brick and mortar pits like the fabulous shots we get to see of backyard BBQ areas, etc.

This thread has a perfect description of a simple small pit:

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=137372

Interestingly, this pit is only 3 cinder blocks high. In another thread, stepandfetch responded to a question from me about grate height this way:

"creekwalker- Originally the coals were 3 cinder blocks (24 inches) from the grate. [with a 4-block high pit] I discovered very quickly that it took far too many shoveled coals to bring the temps at the grate level to 200 F. My stack of split hickory wood dwindled far too quickly. I removed one level of blocks, so now there is only a distance of 16 inches from the bed of coals to the grate. This has worked perfectly for me- I only have to shovel coals every 45 minutes or so to keep temps up. I keep my temps at around 200 F. At this level, it takes about 9 hours to finish a 7 lbs butt... more time over the coals, more smoke in the meat."
