Gator Pit Owners
 
Took delivery of my Gator Pit a month ago and am wondering who else owns one. I have to say I am soooo impressed with it and Ritch the owner.

I'm not a Gator pit owner, but I say this thread us useless without pictures of the pits. Show us your new pit!

24*40 party Gator owner checking in! I love all my pits but the Gator has a special place because it was custom built just for me ;)
How about some specs on yours?!?!

It really is a lot of fun to cook on. I'm sure all the other high end offsets are comparable but Ritch was great to talk to so I had to get one of his pits.
Here is the 4th of July...

And congrats on the pit, you're gonna love it!

And to think they're just about 20 minutes from my house. REALLY want to get one. I'm tempted to get the WSM, I know they work great, but got to say deep down I want an offset stick burner.

i love my party gator. They work very good as a stick burner. dont try charcoal unless u bought the basket. yours looks julst like mine except for the counter weight. did u get tuning plates? if not i highly suggest you order some. they make a world of difference.

Looks to big for ya, look at all that room on those grates, I'll bring my WSM by and get you something more your size sir. Just kidding, that is a pretty piece of hardware and you should be more than happy with it. I am very envious, enjoy and please more specs and pics :grin:

I am hooked on my Backyard Classic. Very economical to operate and fire mangment is a breeze.

That is really nice. Thanks to you and Superdan for the pics. Ritch does put out a good product. He built me a custom door for my brick smoker. Went to his shop to meet him and they were very busy building new cookers. Stand-up guy too.

Specs are 44X 24 single door, counter weight, dual thermometers, tuning plates, bird house stack. What I really like about it is how easy it is to maintain heat.

Here's a picture of my smoke today. Ribs, pork belly, salmon, turkey legs, wings going on later and chicken for smoked chicken gumbo.
