Maybe you’ve noticed the KC Pit BBQ truck squatted at the corner of Fourth Street and New York Avenue NW. Frankly, I don’t know how you could miss it. The damn thing takes up nearly an entire block, and that doesn’t count the separate, customized wood-smoke pit hidden behind the massive 18-wheeler.

The tractor-trailer has been hovering in the District for a few weeks now, serving up K.C.-style ribs and rib tips, among other smoky things. Y&H stopped by for a visit this weekend and sampled the ribs. I’ll post more about that later, but in the meantime, I thought you might be interested in a look inside this portable kitchen, which is actually based in Georgia, not Kansas City (more on that later, too).

According to this specs page, the nearly 54-foot-long truck features:

  • Walk in Cooler
