    No I just thought it was interesting. Way to big for me.

    Jon, it has potential. Are you considering pursuing it?

    Jon, I saw this pit on the side of the road a few years ago. A Texas sized firebox, and no mistake!

    (I think if I'd have opened it, the firebox was probably on the right. But I'll perpetrate the myth for Texas!)

    There's your stickburner my man, one heck of a beast. Wear a mask around that mold, don't chance it, even with water or steam. Spores travel.

    This baby is fuzzy moldy. She needs some serious steam!

    Interesting design - clearly a lot of thought was put into it. Those racks could hold enough meat to feed a whole bunch of folks!

    Clearly they just want someone to haul it off for them. I think you should volunteer, Jon! That is a pit with potential.

    I love the firebox to chamber 'chute'. This was clearly a very considered pit. Break out the wire brush and give it a new lease on life!

    With some paint that this would be pretty cool. I wonder how tight the doors and dampers fit. It looks like they added those boxes near the top for increased capacity. It kinda looks like something you would find in a Tim Burton film or in the Adams family's back yard. Cool find.

    That square box on the back (above the fire box) is a warmer. The square box on the the side had the motor.

    Weird layout... is the bottom connected to the smoking chamber? Seems like maybe you start the wood off in the bottom and then load into the square firebox??

    Old pit on the side of the road...

    Saw this old rotisserie pit on the side of the road in a small store parking lot. Thought I needed a bottle of water and a few pics. The gal in the store didn't have any info on the pit. Just thought I'd check it out:
