    Big Brown Sandbox?  :) Looks like fun. Hope all goes well. If not you can take a snorkel for your inlet, and your daisy wheel for exhaust to control your temp.  :)>-
  • just woke up from a "nap". I guess an hour or so to go before digging the pig parts up out of the ground.

    I was, but the forecast changed.  You should be good to sleep on the beach tonight.  No need to crash in the back of the suburban with the windows rolled up this time.

    Almost the same anticipation level as when Geraldo Rivera was about to open Al Capone’s vault.

    Not sure if anyone has asked, but are you cooking to temp or guessing.

  • Ok.- all's well that ends well but we had to finish the pig in the oven. We let the coals burn down too much I guess but it was hot when we dug it out- just not pulling apart. We finished it off and destroyed it @ 1am with a handle of Bourbon. The whole thing was a blast and I may do another one tonight just to get it right. Might need to drink a bit less........tomorrow.

    11:51, post...Not bad.
    =))

    Glad it ended well even if it was in an oven. It looked\sounded like it was a blast. How long was it in there? How did you know coals were out?

    Think maybe the sand just wasn't as good at holding the heat as denser dirt would have been?

    I'm Pretty sure it would have worked of I had put in the pork when the lump bed was still hotter. I let it burn down too much. lots of fun though. People were stopping g by from all over the beach to check it out. I'll definitely do it again.

    Regardless I'm extremely jealous. I'd be digging a pit in my back yard right now if digging a 16" hole in Vegas didn't require a jack hammer and hours of prison style "little rocks from big rocks" hard labor.

    Yeah, Austin would be about the same. The beach sure made it easier but you just can't help but to get sand in everything down there. As careful as we were, there was still some sand that got in. We brushed it off and It was fine but it was still there on a few bites. The whiskey helped too :D

    It was fun. Too much fun. I've been dying all day though. As cap once said, I would have to rally to die. Everyone else is on ther 10th beer and the thought of lubricating the death machine again gives me the shakes. Im headed to the pool to see if I can keep a cocktail down. :-&
