No, it was an above ground metal firepit.
Around here either they are welded metal or use an old(washed out)oil tank that’s cut in half.
Have a group of guys who will get together to put on pig roasts in the area. We have many Puerto Ricans in the community that have the methods passed down through generations- along with awesome rice and black beans (that I still haven’t dragged their recipes out of them ;)
Thanks. Being from the south, pigs are roasted in the ground there. I have read up on the process, but not done it. I am told there is none better. There are people that specialize in doing pig-in-ground cookouts and will come over and do them for you. I guess that I will just have to get by cooking the pig on the grill or smoker!
