I'm in the Pitmaker crowd. I researched all of these pits before I bought my vault and I'm 100% happy with the way my pit performs. I feel that it's the best vertical on the market hands down. If you want a offset, the gators are very high quality and worth the wait. 1/2" steel firebox 1/4 pit is gonna hold heat well The picture doesn't do it much justice, but the pitmaker magnum sniper
is absolutely stunning in person. Everyone I know that has one loves it, can cook lots of food and this will be my next pit.
