World's Largest Bar-b-que Pit

The pit at Big Boy's Toys is still located in Magnolia, AR, on hwy 79. The pit looks like a big rocketship laid on its side. It is portable. Hook it up too any pickup or car and tow away to your favorite picinic area. They also have some smaller pits -- one looks like a locomotive engine. All of their pits are trailer mounted.

World's Largest Charcoal Grill

There's a store down by the Louisiana border called "Boys Toys" that claims to have the world's largest charcoal grill. I think it was reported at 70+ feet long. The guy who built it did so when he saw another of approximately 40 feet that was billed as the world's largest.
