General FAQ

What about safe operation?

Ole Hickory Pits are equipped with features that substantially reduce the fire hazard associated with conventional barbecuing methods. The location of the firebox prevents the fire from coming in direct contact with flammable meat and fat dripping. The burner, which controls the cooking temperature, is connected to an Upper Limit Control Switch. If the temperature inside the pit exceeds 350 degrees the Upper Limit Control Switch shuts off the burner automatically; thus, greatly reducing fire hazard.
