They say that everything is bigger in Texas. And Terry Folsom took that concept and applied it to his barbecue business. The Houston-based man has an 18-wheeler truck that has been converted into a barbecue pit.
Folsom, who comes from Brenham, Texas, owns both a farm and a trucking company. This is where he got the idea to combine the two into what can only be described as the world’s biggest barbecue pit. It is capable of cooking more than four tons of barbecue meat at once!
The 76-foot smoker, named “Undisputable Cuz,” has 24 pit doors and seven smokestacks. There is a cooking area of 800 square feet. In addition, there is also a walk-in cooler close to the front area, plus a TV screen and four beer taps!
Folsom further customized his rig with some Texas-shaped dampers and a Texas-shaped firebox in the back of the rig. Check out the video from Ridiculous Rides by Barcroft Cars below:
Back in 2015, Folsom had put the rig up for sale for $400,000. However, it seems that he still owns it to this day – but it’s unclear whether he changed his mind about the sale or if he simply couldn’t find a buyer for it.
Besides taking the barbecue pit around to various events, Folsom also uses it to do some good. He is known to use the rig to feed those in need. Texas senator, John Cornyn, tweeted about Folsom’s rig showing up to a Salvation Army in Galveston, where he provided Thanksgiving dinner for 1,200 people. And following Hurricane Harvey, Folsom’s rig spent 11 days helping the Red Cross to feed 55,000 people affected by the storm.

As he shared with Houston Chronicle, “It’s rewarding to see people happy. I’m glad to help people. It’s not an ego thing.”
