Southern pit barbecue is an art form. It requires patience and time to master, but the results are well worth it.

The meat is seasoned and cooked in an enclosed pit at low temperatures using indirect heat that's produced by a slow burning hardwood fire. The meat is both smoked and cooked at the same time.

One way to recognize genuine Southern pit barbecue is by the “smoke ring”. This is the pink ring that appears on the outside edges of the meat. When you see that “smoke ring” you know you're eating authentic Southern pit barbecue.

Cooking good barbecue involves a lot of time, patience and good old-fashioned
hard work.
