    Default Oklahoma Joe Open Fire Pit

    While at the Oklahoma Joe's BBQ in Broken Arrow they had an open fire pit staged by the front door. As Joe came around talking with folks enjoying their BBQ, he stopped by our reserved table and had a conversation. During that conversation I told him I'd take that pit off his hands.

    He told me the story of the pit being made for a group in Nassau and that there were a total of 80 of them made. He had a $200 price tag on the unit ... so I had to have it.

    It is a sturdy cooker pit set up in the cowboy style with a moveable cooking grate and a swing arm for hanging a pot over the fire.

    I did fire the bad boy up Sunday after getting it home and threw on a few ribeyes over some charcoal and cherry logs, but didn't get the pics of the ribeyes.

    Here's the pics I have of the pit. Looking forward to a lot of cooking with it (given the time of course)

    Good score Joe. Brett and I were discussing whether or not that needed a log grate. Glad it went to a good home.

    I think it does need a log grate. I put an old cast iron grate at the bottom then an old 22.5 cooking grate over that for now. I'll probably have an expanded metal grate made for the bottom.

    I think the two of us are gonna make beautiful meals together.

    Nice pit!

    Looks like you need to cook some fatty chicken thighs on that thing to season that cooking grate.

    Very Cool Joe! John beat me to it, so I won't throw a chicken joke.

    But did you tell her that you needed something to cozy up with her in front of?
