You feel lucky, punk?

A friend of mine recently forwarded me an email with the following picture attached and suggested I add it to my BBQ “arsenal”.

SandWMagnum

I wasn’t able to find the source of this picture, but in the process got me to wondering about what other selections might be available, so off to Google I went.  A bit of determined searching turned up some similar models.  This one is a bit smaller (perhaps a ladies model?), and might be a gag gun based on that red flag hanging out of the barrel.

For those looking for something a little larger, here is a Texas model that is 19 feet long and weighs over 750 pounds.  I wouldn’t want to be following that trailer on the freeway…

Here’s another offering from Texas; this one is apparently available for events.  Personally, I wouldn’t feel very comfortable towing this one behind me for the same reasons as I wouldn’t want to follow the previous one…

BBQ GUN2

Here’s one that appears to be loaded.  It also came with information regarding the design; according to the BBQ Report:

Joe Wood of Weimar, Texas built this 6 foot-11 custom barbecue pit in his home metal shop. The barrel is 10 feet long and 8 inches in diameter, and the entire rig is over 15 feet long. The pistol’s grips, which cover the firebox, are made of red oak. When cooking, the barrel acts as the grill’s chimney. It took over two years and 1,100 hours to complete, and used more than two tons of red oak, stainless, and carbon steel.

There seems to be a Texas theme going on here.  Somehow I’m not surprised by that…

Last but not least, we have this offering spotted at a BBQ Cookoff in Terrell, Texas.  Apparently they are serious about their BBQ there…

All these custom pits, so little time.  Go ahead, make my day…
