Man, I really wish I could make good chili. I guess I just need to practice more but my results are usually pretty disappointing. That looks awesome.

Thanks all. I built that pit about years ago when we put down sod, cement and fixed up the backyard. Took me about three weeks to complete from the stone work to the welding of the cross bars etc. It basically just drains into the soil. I pull that ashes out after a day or so. That way if it does rain it doesn't leach into the soil and kill off the grass. I had that happen last year. Here in the cooler months. I use it pretty often to cook in. My next project is to make a motor powered rotiss for it to do cabrito(goat) and small piggies. Thanks again all. The chili was even better this morning for breakfast. The pit also makes some nice peecan lump coal for the kettle.

There is nothing that looks bad in those pictures. In fact, it all looks great! Dang, I miss El Paso...more so when I see pix like those.

The chili - you said you won't share the recipe, but will you tell me how finely you chopped the meat - it didn't look to fine - or ground.
