Listen in as customer-turned-pitmaster Nathan Pier takes us on a pit tour at Evie Mae's. Arnis Robbins custom builds his own unique reverse flow pits that are like no others in the business.

The first two pits, named Shadrach and Meshach started from 750 gallon propane tanks but the tops are boxed out to provide up to three racks of cooking surface. Their third pit is a large J&R Oyler 1300. Pits four and five were the most recent pits built for full time restaurant use. They retain Arnis' reverse flow design but leave the rounded tops from the original tanks intact and also benefit from an insulated firebox.
