    Wife had drumsticks out, said "How do you wanna cook 'em?" I said, "Duh...on the pit!" Threw about 6-7 small cherry splits at the bottom of the ring and let em burn down half way. Then drug em under the grill. Added some baked beans and we're good to go. Our meal was really good.

    Ah, and so it begins. Some little hickory bits on the coals would be nice too. I could see a nice steak searing away on that too.

    I like how you built the pit to your Grate size.

    I built my pit and I cant find a Cooking Grate to fit :(

    Looks awesome.... :)

    You are contributing to the delinquency of a fat person! Now I am looking at those cherry and hickory stacks in a whole new way...
    We still have a burn ban!....;sick

    That is so neat! I want to know how often a busy person like you is going to get to use it. Time to have some friends over and enjoy!
