From the oil fields of Texas comes the most innovative concept in barbecue pits. Made of 1/4" steel, these units are guaranteed against burnout for a lifetime of enjoyment. This style of grill originated when a welder would have an odd piece of pipe left over from a section of pipeline. You can imagine the results! A very important part of this design is indirect cooking. By separating the fire from the meat, grease fires are eliminated as well as adverse effects on grilling directly over your heat source. When attempting to obtain a charcoal flavor, direct cooking sears the meat surface, preventing the flavorful smoke from penetrating. Meat just gets charred when done over direct heat, and some folks think that's the charcoal flavor!
