It may take hours to get that 2 inch thick firebox hot enough to burn clean. But after it gets hot you can probably keep cooking for a while without a fire. Let us know how it works out.

The builder said it took him about an hour to get hot/up to temp.

Why bother painting it? The crusty look adds character!

That's an awesome rig. I'm glad you put the young lady in the pic for a size reference. I didn't realize how massive that pit was until I saw her modeling the beast. Keep us posted on the paint & build process.

While I haven't gotten the monster blasted or painted yet, there were a few things to take care of. On Saturday I built a platform even with the trailer height for me to stand on while tending the pit.


It's big enough that I thought about mounting a pole in the middle, but nobody wants to see my moves.

I then cleaned the pit out burned everything good with the weed burner, hit it with simple green and pressure washed. I then got after the inside of the cook chamber with a putty knife and scraped away the very thick layer of dried drippings coating everything.

I built a fire to dry it out, and once it was dry sprayed the inside with pam and cranked the heat a bit. Between the 6" diameter stack and the "collector" that covers pretty much the entire width of the pit, this thing draws really well. It also holds temp a whole lot better than I am used to. Early on the stack end runs about 25 degrees hotter than the firebox end, but once it gets really warmed up temps are with 10 - 15 degrees across the grate, the hot spot being right over the end of the baffle.

This morning I got up at 5 and built a fire,



got a butt in the pit at 6:30. It's coming along well.



About a hour ago a good little shower came but the pit didn't lose a whole lot of heat.


I like having this much metal. More to come.

EDIT....Not sure why pictures aren't showing up.....Edited again - figured it out...old man on the internet syndrome

Closer to 210, it's kind of an odd size but works for me, the grate is 52x31, so with that much width I should be able to do a whole pig.

Foiled the butt about 8 hours in

,
while it finished cooking I lit my Weber and roasted some Hatch chiles


pulled it off the pit at about 9 1/2 hours, rested and pulled.


Added a little finishing sauce and slaw and the sammies were awesome
