A Brenham barbeque rig is part of an effort to feed thousands of Hurricane Harvey evacuees and first responders in Houston.

Kimberly King and Terry Folsom are using their 75-foot long Peterbilt barbeque pit to help feed people at the NRG Center in downtown Houston.

Numerous businesses are sponsoring the event to serve as many as 50,000 meals.

King and Folsom will be joining full-time chefs from Florida and Chicago in grilling on the massive vehicle for the charity event.

The 80,000 pound trailer features 24 doors and can cook 8,000 pounds of meat at one time.

Refrigerated trailers will deliver the meat supplied by several Florida companies.

  1. To whom it may concern,
    As a fellow Houstonian/ Katy resident it’s a great gesture on their part to offer to hellp out so many in need when asked to help. I was just curious if it actually cooked anything because we had a pit built by David Klose as well and he called me and asked to borrow it (Shawcor pit)? He said the tractor trailer pit he built years ago was not in cooking condition and rusted out and they needed some of his larger pits to make up for it. We had the pit shipped in from Midland at our expense over the Labor Day weekend and delivered it to chef David at 2 am in the morning Sunday the day before Labor Day.
    again to help our fellow Houstonians in need. Not trying to shame anyone just wanted to make you aware that they were not the only ones helping out.

    1. Dear Matt
      Yes there was a problem with the pit but the pit was fixed and yes it was used to cook for the Red Cross Shelter a lo g with some of David’s custom pits. And a little more info David did not build this pit but yes he did work on it. Trailer is a Liddell trailer and the roll form was built in Cyress Texas.

    2. Yes they did use the pit and yes there was a problem but problem was fixed . This pit is NOT a David Klose Pit, but yes he did work on this pit.

  2. Tyson is donating a tractor trailer full of chicken and looking for ways to cook them….

  3. We have already cook about 4,000 lbs of meat. We are off tomorrow and will be back Wednesday to cook. We are needing Volunteers for preparing the food and donations for tshirts and caps.
