The Rufus Memorial Pit

Dan Gill's classical eastern North Carolina pit.
Here it is, folks! The world's greatest backyard barbecue pit. This one is nothing more than cinder blocks layed out on the ground and filled with sand. The lid happens to be a cover off an old turkey feeder, but a sheet of tin roofing would do just as well.
The guest of honor (in this case Rufus himself) is layed on a rack or bars over the coals.
A block or two are removed when more coals are needed.
Next thing you know, a pig pickin' breaks out!
