This guy...

He has has had several folks in FB complain (selling pages) but then he threatens the admins with sueing them and they take it down.

We surely need a sticky to keep people from getting ripped off. Two I saw paid for concession rigs :o

I hate a thief... Best of luck recovering your money. Hope it's not a complete loss. Call your cc company and explain the situation and see if they will issue a charge back and let them handle the recovery.

I ordered my smoker, a 36 inch patio smoker back in April 2017 with a delivery date of approximately June 1, 2017. The quality looked great, the materials were heavy steel, and the price seemed amazing. But like all things that seem to be too good to be true, so are Built-Rite Smokers. Here I sit on Jan 4th, 2018 and I still have no smoker. 7 months beyond the expected delivery date with no end in site. In good faith I gave 50% up front for materials. That's money that I now believe I'm just out; lessons learned I suppose. It takes weeks and several repeated messages both on his cell, facebook, and now his landline just to get a response or return message if I'm lucky, and that's only after I use the term 'refund'. His responses are usually just him providing some excuse why it's still not done and promising that it's either 75% complete, will be done in the next week, next two weeks or by the end of the month. It's become a running joke with my wife on what his excuse will be this time, or what new bogus timeframe I'll get. I went back through my old messages with Donnie and found 7 promised and passed deadlines that he himself gave me.

To make a long story short, I would highly recommend that anyone considering a custom built smoker steer clear of Donnie Boston and Built-Rite Smokers. His smokers may be good quality (I wouldn't know since I'm well passed 7 months beyond my expected delivery date and haven't received my smoker yet), but they certainly aren't worth all the trouble and hassle. I've missed nearly an entire year of use at this point. Spend the money, find a reliable builder, and save yourself the trouble.
I have also been looking at this site, and couldn't find any more than you guys, so I typed the company name into the BBB search and came up with an unresolved complaint almost identical to this. I decided to cross this builder off of my list.

There is a reason some Fabricators want so much $$ up front.
As I have said before, it becomes a situation of" Robbing Peter to pay Paul".
Sooner or later Peter gets sore and nobody can do business with a sore Peter.(Just MHO of these situations)

Everyone can assume they know me or my business, or get on these forums and post whatever they want. One posts something somewhere then like a rumor it grows and stuff gets added here and added there. The next you know I'm living in Mexico drinking tequila watching Senioritas dance while I'm counting all the money I supposedly stole. Well guess what..... it's all BS! Never stole a dime from anyone! I work hard for what I have building very good smokers at a very affordable price! Am I behind? YEP AND I'VE BEEN PRETTY DAMN OPEN ABOUT THAT! SO POST ALL YOUR BS HOW I'M DOING THIS OR I'M DOING THAT I'LL BE OUT HERE IN THE STICKS OF SOUTH GEORGIA MINDING MY OWN DAMN BUSINESS BUILDING SMOKERS OUTSIDE BETTER THAN MOST GUYS BUILD IN THEIR FANCY SHOPS! YOU WANT TO CRITICIZE ME OR TALK ABOUT ME ON FORUMS, HOW ABOUT YOU QUIT ACTING LIKE A BUNCH OF WOMEN SPREADING GOSSIP AT THE HAIR SALON! YOU WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES YOU WOULD DEFINITELY HAVE A DIFFERENT STORY!

And yes I will not only threaten to sue, but will follow through with a lawsuit on anyone that posts a half ass concocted story for slander or whatever else I can! This is my livelihood, the way I support my family and I will protect it no matter what I have to do!

Now you want to talk and try and stop me from building smokers and doing what I love. Go ahead but it will be a cold day in hell before you can ever make me give up! I'm here to stay and will be bigger and better than ever, so all the "Big Companies" better watch out I'm coming to give you a run for your money. And remember....

IF IT AIN'T BUILT RITE.... IT'S BUILT WRONG!
PEACE!

It would go a long way if Brian could report that he received his cooker.

I see it once, I dismiss it. Twice, maybe tough times. Multiple reports. I am going to use my instincts.

That is if it's EVER Built.

And this is how the "big companies" you're coming after feel.
