I think that maybe I have been around here too long.

I cautiously followed the link above expecting it to end up being a Mahna Mahna link, but it wasn't!

Good video. You'll have to post some pictures of the beast in action. That cooking grate isn't all that far off the ground and away from the coals so I'm a little leery.

My problem with the whole build is the cinder blocks are stacked on top of each other!!..
Not very stable!. Why not break one in have or buy a half block and then stagger them!

Very true, its a ruff design, but it is workable and something that can be improved on.

I guarantee you will be picking up more pieces of brick than you put down.

Kind of similar to what my step dad and I do. However we do stagger, and not 4 high. Also, we don't do whole hog...just the shoulders or b butts. I'll post pics next time we do a cook. Hopefully REAL SOON!

Isn't the meat too close the the heat source? Only 16 inches? Actually less if you consider the fuel itself will take up some room on the ground, meaning more like 10" or 12" of space between fuel and meat.
