I helped out with a charity barbecue today. Lot's of fun! The recipe used goes back almost 100 years in Virginia. 400 chicken halves in total on a 24 foot long pit.

Oh man, that takes me back. I first cooked on a pit like that as the rake boy, must have been 1972 or so, looked exactly like that except is was for our church, and it was teriyaki/huli chicken. That pit is long gone, but, my heart loves what I see in those pictures

great cook:thumb: as a kid my grandfather, dad and uncles used to cook on pits like that at family reunions. I don't recall exactly what the pit looked like but just remember about a mile of chicken parts.

It was today on a pit about 1/4 mile from my house.

That's a lot of bird... on a big-a$$ pit!

I'm hoping it was a lot of fun! I'm with Titch - I'll bet the smell was delicious.

If the lip smacking aroma of that BBQ could be bottled, we would have raised a lot of money just with the smell. It did smell incredible while barbecuing.

The Pit boos probably wouldn't like me sharing his recipe. But, this thread has one that is very similar.

Looks amazing, great work! The photo is deceptive though, the pit looks a lot longer than 24 feet, but that is a ton of chicken right there.
