Pitmaker vault or assassin
 
I am racking my brain trying to figure out which one to buy. Are you able to get the long cooks using a charcoal pattern on the pitmaker. I saw the thread about people having problems controlling temps is this with a older style? The assassin is a great deal with the guru controller. If I did the pitmaker I would have to put off the controller until I had more money. Thanks Michael

Take a look at a Stumps. FireCraft.com has them in stock. No waiting.

JM2C keep your cash in Tejas. Get the pit maker you won't regret it and as a Bonus no shipping costs other than a few bucs in gas to pick it up.

Have you visited pitmakers shop? Awesome pits.

I'm with Bludawg keep the money here, people pay big bucks to have the vault shipped and you can go pick it up.

It will be a longer wait with pitmaker

I dont have a vault but I have the Pitmaker safe. Great build quality

I have the Assassin 28 and it's an excellent cooker. The customer service is top notch, the build quality is very nice and the performance is exactly what I wanted. I run mine with a Stoker WIFI.

I really liked the look of the Pitmaker pits, but I had read of some people having some minor issues with them. I can't remember if it had to do with the preheat or if it would run too hot. There was something which I had seen in several posts that made me choose the Assassin. For the price and capacity (mine has six racks), it's pretty darn hard to beat.

The only thing that I don't like about the Assassin is the rear access for the firebox. It means I cannot place the cooker where I really want it, but it's a minor issue and part of how it's designed. The Rebel with the side box might have worked a little better for my patio configuration, but I have zero regrets. It runs like a top.

I am very pleased with my vault, no problems with temps and can cook 250 for 10-12 hours no problem. Cooking wings right now at 325 and once you learn how to adjust for the desired temp it will take care of itself. Built like a tank and will outlast me for sure.

Well came across the vault yesterday on craigslist, used but comes with 2 extra racks, ash pan and wifi guru with 2 fans. I need to make a cart for it but it should work out and no waiting....Michael

Get a Lonestargrillz cooker..Made in texas, larger and cheaper than the vault. I may be a little biased :)
