DSCN0171The BACC has rounded up this very rare and unique Longhorn BBQ Pit to be raffled off at the 2nd Annual Fajita Fiesta Cook Off, on September 25 -26,2015 in Buda’s City Park. The Longhorn is 100% hand crafted and made in Torreon Coach, Mexico.

This art piece is also a working BBQ pit. It’s made of schedule 5 sheet metal which is welded every inch to give it maximum support. The inner frame is made of welded rebar designed to hold up to 250 pounds. The actual pit, which sits in the Longhorn’s belly, is made from a high heat resistant 16X30 medium size water tank. The BBQ Pit is made to be used with mesquite or charcoal. When in use, the cooking smoke will come out of the Longhorns nose that also doubles as a bottle opener.

lh3The Longhorn weighs approximately 200 pounds. The body has been cured with sulfur and copper components to get a brilliant copper / gold color. The final touch in making this work of art is a complete brushing of clear gloss varnish to make it shine like a star. The whole process takes expert craftsmen 4 days to complete one Longhorn BBQ Pit. This is a must have showoff BBQ Pit!
