When I saw this excellent DIY barbecue pit smoker video tutorial by Rust Is Gold on YouTube, I knew I had found the DIY barbecue pit smoker of my dreams. I love barbecue of all kinds, and this design is perfect for grilling with the top up or smoking meat, like a big brisket, with the top down. This pit is what I call the Texas special because I have seen so many of them in backyards since I was a child. The method Rust Is Gold uses it really simple and straight forward but it does require some metal-working skills.
