    Only problem with the Akorn is it's only 20 inches in diameter

    Larger than the Large Big Green Egg though

    The XL Big Green Egg at 24 inches would hold full size ribs

    But like you said Oscar

    That size is WAY pricey!

    The $400 they quoted me on another 48 inch diameter culvert is starting to look mo'betta

    In fact I just ordered another five foot culvert @ $55.60 LF

    Guess I'll be heading down to Pinellas County

    They wanted $300 to deliver it :yikes

    The grate heights were perfect on that old culvert cooker - for everything from baking the mac & cheese entrees, to smoking the mullet, to smoking and finish cooking the ribs. If you don't remember the spacing you can always extrapolate from that picture of Mike and other pics I'm sure exist of that culvert cooker extraordinaire.

    Some of the very best ribs I ever had came from that sucker! :dukegirl I remember one year some of the party animals went to the VFW shindig and so those who stayed behind had a feast.
    I actually wolfed down two racks and a bundle of Jalepeno poppers.....:krusty:imaposer

    Total length is five feet but some gets buried so it'll stay put

    And I had both ends rolled so they won't be sharp

    In the photo the grate is on the third rib from the top.. Provided they are similar in size that should help with sizing the grill/smoker/bbq/:dukegirl

    Picked up the culvert in Pinellas Park today

    Got my old torches at the camp

    The same ones I used to build the original

    They haven't been used since then either

    Twenty-Five years probably

    Yep!

    Little ones take up most of your time up until they're old enough to leave the nest.

    Oldest is in college.

    Youngest is a freshman in High School.

    A few more years and I can...

    Next time I'm up in Jawja, I'll hit you up.

    Stayed at Vogel SP last summer in the RV with the family.

    Pretty cool place.

    I think it's close to where you're at.

    I'll definitely visit that place again.
