    Are you a grill master?



    I call this open fire pit / grill in my backyard the "Cowboy Cooker."  I cook over real wood:  pecan, oak and mequite mostly.  My neighbor and I took down a plum tree last year that provided terrific wood flavor.  This is the perfect grill because it provides a great social setting, and the food has just the right amount of smokey flavor.  The whole hog was amazing.  It cooked for 20 hours.  Everything I cook is done very slowly until it is very tender, and remains juicy by design.  I cook all types of meats and vegetables on this grill.
