This iReport is part of an assignment:
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.
