I got into knives as a result of competition BBQ. I couldn't resist posting some pics of the new competition BBQ pit I just ordered. The guy who makes them builds them one at a time, so mine won't be ready until June (half way through the competition season :()

Mine will be painted camouflage. Check it out:

That's a Jambo, right? Strictly backyard bbq here, w/ a recent upgrade from an electric smoker to a WSM-cooked ribs & turkey breast in a thunderstorm yesterday...that's a beautiful pit, but I don't think cami will make it inconspicuous :cool:

Yep, that's a Jambo J-3. I use a WSM as well. Pound for pound, dollar for dollar, the WSM is the best cooker on the market. I use a WSM at comps for chicken. It has more than paid for itself :o

Dang, that is nice. But I'm more interested in what comes out it. I need some brisket pics.

You're a lucky man. The 22.5 inch WSM is on my "to buy" list; a Jambo is on my "dream" list. Good luck this season!

Hey guys, hope this is kinda the right place to ask this...

I want to build a brick BBQ pit/oven/workstation off the back deck. Now I kinda know how I want it to work, but maybe I can save myself some grief, by looking for design ideas from some of you pro's. What I want to have is an area for grilling, a decent sized wood heated oven, a prep surface, and I think a smoke stack of some sort. Any one got pics of theirs, or dplans/sketches? Does the type of brick matter, I think I can get some 50 year old salvaged bricks...

I will try and look up some sites that I recall having barbecue designs and layouts. For barbecues and ovens, my understanding is that you want to use untreated bricks since you will be burning at a high temperature and you don't want any harmful chemicals in the bricks to burn off into your food (and you).

For wood burning ovens, check out Slice (on Serious Eats). There are some profiles of people who made their own wood burning ovens there.

This is definitely the right place to ask this...

Damn nice looking setup. Show us the pics when it arrives.

Show us pics of what you cook with it. This is NOT a request... I want to see what comes out of that thing.

Oh, and please share the recipes... <---this is definitely a request =)

Wow, a Jambo, I'm jealous! Please post up pics when it's ready.

I'm in the process of building a 250 gallon trailer smoker. I don't know why, as I don't do comps and I don't cater, but I have the equipment and the tank was free so why not?

Pierre:

Here's one website that might be of help. http://www.fornobravo.com/

Forno Bravo makes pizza ovens of various sizes. I saw some links on the left hand side of the website that might have some information you're looking for.

Maybe in a little more of a lazy "L" shape.

Hi Monty: What is the name of your team? Looks like a great pit!!

I cook with two teams. One is with a friend: Holy and Oly's BBQ. This year I will also be cooking with my boys - so basically it's me solo :) - That team is called Monty's Little Monsters. We cooked in North Kansas City for our first comp this year and took a real beating. Lowest finish I've ever had. It make take a while to adjust to going it alone! :)

Holy Crap! The Goodyear Eagle GTs and Rims alone cost more than my whole grill setup!
