Texas is known for two things – Barbecue and Big. The Undisputable Cuz is both.
They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and you’ll have a hard time finding better proof that the “Undisputable Cuz”, a humongous barbecue pit located at the Folsom residence along highway 290, in Brenham. The 18-wheeler, 40-ton, 75-foot monstrosity ventilated by seven chimneys is the world’s largest barbecue pit. This is by far, The World’s Largest Barbecue Pit!
When you add in the cab, this awesome truck measures at a full 103 feet and weighs in at a full 103,000 lbs. It’s so huge that it needs to be carried around in a large truck and Local authorities have to issue special permits and escorts just to move the cooker down the road!
It has 24 doors – 12 on this side, 12 on the other,” said owner Terry Folsom, proudly describing his prized possession.
The pit can cook four tons of meat at a time, and also has a walk-in cooler with space for kegs attached to beer taps on the outside. Surprisingly, the heat that powers the beauty comes from a small fire that burns only a couple of cords of wood. A tube carries the heat along the length of the entire pit.
Terry said that he acquired the Undisputable Cuz as a part of a business deal with its original owner, who used to take it on tour. But while his son loves to cook on it, his wife would like to get rid of it pretty soon, so it’s up for sale on eBay for a whopping $350,000. And the price doesn’t cover the low-mileage 18-speed Peterbilt that houses the pit. The vehicle will set you back by an additional $50,000.
Some people tell me we ought to put it back on tour but I’d rather just sell it and get it gone,” said Kim Folsom, Terry’s wife.
In addition to the eBay posting, the Folsoms have also put up a sign on the highway to attract potential buyers. Terry’s hoping that some rich guy driving down the highway will see the sign, stop, and write him a check.
Get me a certified check and bring it over here and give it to me they’ll own it. I’ll take it right where they need it.”
Awww! This is quite an investment if you’ll just going to sell it away.
