there is one switch and a dial for the temp... thats it. Everything is mechanical... no gas, no electric heat, the dampering lever is a 1 inch steel rod that gets its movement from the rotisserie and a $25 silicone.

Okay think about this.

T Bone Toms uses and Oyler... Ike washed everything in the restaurant into the bay including a set of these 4000 beasts bolted to the slab. They found the pits, drug them out and onto the resturant parking lot where they sat filled with mud and salt water for about 11 months. Then called me to see if they could be salvaged. 400 dollars of parts later they were both running. EVEN THE MOTORS and gears where fine!!!!!! Heck the bearings were fine but we ordered them off of ebay.

Thsi unit looks bad because after a while owners who may keep them covered but out in a place where there is not need for ac, take off the panels and peel off the insulation. The insulation is mostly needed if you keep the unit in the kitchen somewhat.

The walls are clean but the racks need a trip to the car wash. this thing has 12,000 ft pounds of thrust on those arms. I have loaded 500 pounds of brisket and had nothing on the other racks and they purr.

You going to make it mobile or you going to mount it (and I mean mount as in affix, not the other mount).

You going to fix it and sell it or keep it and cherish it? Sell the Meat Mama....that's crazy talk?!

I saw the unit needs little work, mostly cosmetic. New motor in fact bought in January. Mobile unit and I would never sell... I could be buried in this. In fact... 10 of me could be buried in this.

sell the others and go for it! Surely pitts are all over the place down in texas, aren't they? I suppose that would be the issue though, eh? That thing is a monster for sure..hopefully you can pull some strings and get her home!

What about doing a fundraiser funkmeister bbq? Set up at the local pop warner football game and start selling your awesome Q to raise the funds! Maybe just give a small % to the local team.... Just thinking out loud. Or maybe a bake sale! LOL

You figure out how to pay for that thing yet? You got $5 pledged, only $1,995 to go.
