Do you think a pit that has many GC's or won big contests or owned by certain cooks would bring a higher price than the same model pit with no wins, etc? What makes one pit "worth" more than another?

Probably not. It's the cook, not the cooker.

But, I see a lot of guys using this in their ads to sell their pits. It certainly sounds better that "I haven't won a thing with this hunk of scrap iron" :-D

If that were the case, Lonnie would get more for his used pits than his new ones . . .


Same for Myron.

Not if it's a really old Jambo valued at over $20k;)

Yeah, that pit didn't sell...

I know there isn't enough money to buy my FE-100 that I won the Jack with... well, I guess I shouldn't say none. Otherwise its not for sale..

You can guarantee that out of 7 billion people, at least ONE of them will be a collector...

Nope. You don't hear about anyone paying big bucks for Julia Child's old oven or Emeril's cutting board. Used tools aren't collectable until a hundred years or so have passed.

Probably not unless of course it once belonged to Tuffy Stone

Funny you should mention that...
