Authentic Southern Style Brick BBQ

Hey all.

When I bought my house a few years back, I had to have some work done to my back yard. So, I found design for an authentic southern style brick bbq. I built the cost of the BBQ into my mortgage.

It has a fireplace on one side where you burn down the hickory (or whatever wood you are using) to coals. You then transfer those coals to another fireplace with a steel door. Above it is another opening with a steel door where you place your meat.

You do this every 45 minutes or so, burning wood down to charcoal and transferring the charcoal.

I only fire it up once ever couple of months, but it is quite a show stopper. I think the stone and brink creates an even heating environment and while labor intensive, it's fun to work on a Saturday or Sunday.

Does anyone out there have anything similar or am I the only nut job?

Dave

Lighten up Dave. It's not being a nut job cause you like to enjoy a unique way of preparing food.

Now if you was to load that up and bring it to a comp...........

Sounds mighty neat! Nieghbor feller had one, till he found out it was not really on his property, see, the snow plow sorta slid to far over an WHAM, they found out it was in the wrong place an didn't have ta repair it, so he finally tore it down. As I remember, some mighty tastey vittles came offin that thin!

Well Dave..can only echo the sentiments of the other folks. You a mighty fortunant fella to have a pit like that..especially if you get a good deal on wood. Have seen several in operation over the years and of course old Dave Lineback been preaching the virtues of such a configuration in cyberspace since Algore invented it and Old Shep was just a pup. Got complete plans somewhere on how his was built etc. You and him need to get to be pals if you aint already. He wont hardly talk to anybody who cooks on an offset on does any comp cooking. He also a real crappy Golfer from whut I heard. Apparently in NC bbq is a ritual with prescribed rules to follow. As far as I can tell they dont care whut it tastes like as long as its cooked in the prescribed way with the appropriate sauces at each stage of the operation. Or maybe they think if it aint cooked and sauced right they know it aint gonna be fittin to eat. Don't even axe about Bob in GA.

Wow...talk about irony. I have talked to him via, and went off of his plans with some slight modifications.

I emailed him a couple of years back but received no reply. Didn't know where to reach him after that.

Small world.
