Default New Smoker Build

After many years of looking, talking to owners, talking to manufacturers, wishing, and researching what would best fit our needs, we have ordered a Bates Custom Pit.

Here are a few pictures of the early construction of our new Bates Custom Pit that is being built by Lone Star Custom Pits and Grills. Steve and Tom have been GREAT to work with and have always been Johnny on the spot to answer emails, return phone calls, etc. Just a real pleasure to work with and from the looks of things, they are building one fine pit

Thanks Steve and Tom and I will post more updates as I get them. Hopefully we will be picking us this "monster" in mid-May.















Will post updates as we get them.

I see where you're going, planning on using it to teach fire behavior classes so you can get the tax write off huh? Good thinking there Chief! I'm a Compartment Fire Behavior Instructor so I can come down and help you with that, of course it'll cost you some ribs, brisket, Guinness, and Scotch!
