Need to find custom pitmaker in Texas ASAP!
 
Hey guys, my boss just told me today that he wants to have a contest/giveaway for our customers and wants to get a trailer pit. I need help finding a builder I can call that *hopefully* has something ready to go or almost ready to go that can get me a pit by December 17. Klose only has a 20"x5' family reunion available which my boss thinks is too small. Pits by JJ doesn't have anything available. By boss thought both Langs and Gators looked cheap. Jambo has a 6 month back log. I'm out of ideas. I'm hoping to find maybe a smaller builder who does great work but just isn't known so he doesn't have the huge wait like some of the bigger guys.

BTW, I'm in the Dallas area and we're willing to travel or pay delivery for a pit.

Any help guys? :confused:

Just got an email from David Klose, he only mentioned the 20"x5' pit but now it looks like he could also finish off a 30"x6' pit which is more what we're looking for. Hopefully that works out but please keep the recommendations coming!

Man, if only I could look at a Gator or Lang and think, "What a cheap piece of junk!" Your boss must be sitting on a pile of mulah!! :shock:

Maybe he should look at functionality over what actually looks "good". If he is turning down Langs and Gators then I'm not sure what companies will satisfy him.

wow, Gator's are the farthest thing from cheap. is it because its flat black paint and not glossy automotive paint?

So does he sound like the pickiest guy in the world? Now you know what I'm dealing with.

But to clarify, he doesn't think Langs and Gators look like junk and he knows they're awesome pits that will cook with the best of them. But those companies, especially Lang, fit into a certain price point; you get incredible value for your money all of the polished features being sacrificed. They basically look like the pit anybody's neighbor in Texas has. He wants something that will create a crowd and really *WOW* everybody. I've got a very, very generous budget to get that done.

I'll tell you if he had his way he'd get a Jambo, but he already called and their custom stuff is 6+ month wait with nothing ready to go.

Too bad you couldn't contact Jay at Spicewine a few months ago!

Also check with TuscaloosaQ here on the forum. He makes awesome smokers. I haven't seen them personally but if what I've seen on this forum is any indication he can probably make you anything you want.
