Texas trucker’s 76-foot BBQ pit trailer is a meat lover’s dream

If you love trucking and barbecue, you’ve got to take a look at how one Texas trucker is combining the two worlds for a good cause.

Veteran trucker and Texas resident Terry Folsom was recently featured on Ridiculous Rides on the Barcroft Cars YouTube channel for his 1997 Peterbilt 379 with a 76 foot barbecue grill/pit trailer that he says is the biggest in the world. The trailer features 24 smoking compartments and a firebox in the shape of the state of Texas at the rear of the trailer.

In the video, Folsom uses his grill for good, firing it up give thanks to a group of local first responders.

Folsom says that the trailer weighs 80,000 pounds and can cook 8,000 to 12,000 pounds of meat at a time — enough to feed thousands of people at a time.

Setting up a cookout takes planning and effort — the oversized truck requires escort vehicles and it takes about two and a half hours to fire up the grill to the correct temperature, but Folsom says that the truck combines his passion for grilled meat and trucking.
