    One of my hobbies. Problem is I tend to share and then folks want me to do it for them also. Pulled pork anyone? :D

    I've got all my metal together to make me a "rib pit" specific for smoking ribs. Basically like what your image is but with a fire box on the side. I had an old pit built like that and it made the best ribs. Just have to get a welder (my brothers portable gen/welder bit the dirt) but right now my toy money is going to a new Catrike 5.5.9 since my wife "stole" my Road after she took it for a test ride.

    For me, it's only REAL BBQ if it's cooked with lump charcoal/hickory (or mesquite, or apple, or cherry or pecan). Some people have good luck with the LP/electric smokers but I never have.

    Trimmed briskets are some of the hardest to cook. It's so easy to dry them out if you aren't careful. That one looks good, has a good bark on it.

    The bad thing.. I remember when brisket was 30 cents a pound. A full brisket would only be about $10. Now you have to pay around $40-50 for one (on sale)!

    Yeah, this one clocked in at around $8 per pound. $50!
