Great post mate.

Love seeing home built BBQ's, and other stuff for that matter. Gives me plenty of idea's, much to the annoyance of 'She Who Must Be Obeyed'.

Job well done.

There is a scrap iron company near us in Lansing, MI called Padnos they have several locations. You can check their website to see if there is one near you, www.padnos.com if not I'm sure there is a similiar company. Anyway they have a 'useables' department where they sell old and new metal. They will even cut it to length, but you have to pay for each cut. Their prices are really good, about 1/3 of buying angle iron at home improvement stores. They have aluminum and stainless steel as well. I thought about using stainless for the sides, but I don't have a way to weld it. Cutting and drilling stainless would have been a nightmare for me too. So I went with mild steel and painted the outside with high temp grill paint.

Thanks everybody for all the compliments!

cool open pit. looks like you can cook a pile on that thing. we used to have an open brick pit for doing burgers and such at parties. it stayed at the old place when we moved. pretty much wanted one since. i second the whole hog...

Default Added a divider

I added a movable divider to the pit on Saturday because we were cooking too much to hold everything on my other 2 small grills. The divider worked great, started with one grate with 4 racks of baby back ribs, then later slid the divider back and added a rack of chicken. There were a couple burgers and dogs thrown on for the youngins who haven't yet acquired real taste buds I guess.

Anyway, had a great Father's day, ate too much and probably drank a lil too much beer, but it was fun!

Really nice. I used to cook on an old concrete & brick pit like that; your all steel version is awsome and the divider is a really neat idea when you don't need the whole thing. Just a thought, I wound up fabricating a curved top out of a few sheets of corrugated tin & EMT couduit so I could cook whole hogs low & slow.

Nice job on your pit. How do you clean out the ash? Shovel?
