HELP with Pit
I am new here. Please help me out. I am going to camp next week and I need to feed 35 people for one of the lunches. I was thinking about cooking meat in a pit. I don't know anything about it except that I have eaten it before and it was yummy!!! When I say pit, I mean a hole in the ground, that I can cook meat in for 12-15 hours.
Any help would be GREAT!!!
I would like to make bbq sandwiches from the meat.
What should I cook?
How do I do the pit? what do I need?
I was thinking about grilling come corn over the fire as a side dish- any helpful tips there??
THANK SO MUCH!!!!!
If this is your first time slow cooking meat on a pit you might want to try something that is a sure fire hit. Slow cooking pulled pork or brisket can be tricky if you have never made it before and you wouldn't want 35 people waiting a while because it took longer to heat up/cook/prep than you thought.
If it isn't too late if you haven't done this before I'd go for boring and make burgers and sausages. Nothing terribly challenging but you won't have disspointed and hungry campers. You can wow your guests with sides and condiments.
Or prove me wrong. The easiest to do is pulled pork and will take about 4-6 hours. There are tons of recipes out there.
You can cook it under ground in a Cast Iron Dutch Oven. That is easy and there is plenty of recipes on the net.
