I dont own one YET, But I Would seriously look into Bubba Grills. I talked to Lonnie the other day and he was extremely helpful and a great guy to talk to about his pits. He has several models at great prices or will build whatever you can think of.

I really looking forward to working with him on my pit in the future.

But good luck with whatever you choose.

That is a hard hypothetical scenario - because not every fabricator offers the same features, options, same size for the same price.

Klose is a traditional offset - which offers a 1/2" firebox and an upright option on the opposite end of the firebox. The design does reveal hot/cold spots that can be used as an advantage of a simultaneous multi-temp zone cooking from one heat source.

Lang is a reverse flow smoker - reduces the hot/cold by preheating a full length baffle under the cooking grates. Reverse flow smokers are recognizable by having the smokestack and firebox on the same side. The vertical chamber option is built over the firebox.

Each has their pro's and cons - both are great cookers.

I'm currently having an R&O pit built, non comp, so I'd say call Billie. Out of the three, I can't see any issues with any of them and to me there is something I really like about Pits by JJ. That something is more than likely shipping costs to AZ though.

One thing I would look at is shipping times. Once you write the down payment check, you start daydreaming so make sure it's within a reasonable time period.
