All you had to do was ask! Lot's of us have had our tails whipped by Trigg and Ron and (fill in a name) using Jamie's cookers. I'll never be able to afford on, but then I can't afford an Escalade to pull a pit either.

I'm kind of sorry I started this thread because we have gone up against the pellet poopers, stick burners, ceramic eggs and home made cookers and did our share of winning and loosing. In retrospect since this first posted-- It's the Cook and not necessarily the cooker that takes the walk. I have found out that it is the cook who knows there cooker and there cooking environment that is the one to beat, JMHO

Dont have to look any further than Rod G. to see that theory in action. Pellet Envy - wins - cooking pellets or not :o)

As a side note... I was going to repost some pics of Jeff's pit, and the Team Q pit, so JKH could see some other really SWEEEEET paint jobs. Got any good paint job pics you can post so he has something else to drool over, Jay?

I found this for us to drool over,on the second page you can see why and how the doors fit nice n snug by the way the cooking chamber doors are cut.

I just realised something,my offset doesn't always cook from the side.
When cooking a whole piggy or shoulders i start off cooking offset style,,then after 2 hours i'll start burning down wood in the firebox and shoveling and pushing the burnt coals thru the firebox baffle right under the oinker without opening the cooking chamber doors.Best of both worlds.Very versatile these cookers.

Bring your check book and you can see into my firebox all you want.

As for info about Pits by Jambo, Jamie Geer builds these pits as a hobby. When in the mood, he builds one to three of them each winter. He says it's just too hot to weld in the summers in Ft. Worth. News flash: Jamie says he's retired for now, so now pits this year. In fact, he's returned at least one deposit he had received. So, when someone asks about price, I guess my pit is priceless since the maker is not building pits.

The pictures of Tuffy's pit in progess on that website were taken in Jamie's shop. In that pic of his passenger side after it's painted, you can see my pit and another one in the background. That was two years ago. Oh, I waited a year after I ordered mine to get it.

Jamie is a fabulous cook. I think that lends to his ability to build a pit that cooks well. He also pays attention to detail and uses products that will allow his pit to look good for a long time. They are awesome units and draw a lot of attention from folks walking by.

I don't know what else I can say about Geer pits. I equate the fit and finish to a Spicewine unit. I've lusted for one of those ever since I got a good look at Jay's latest cooker in Columbia year before last.

Oh yeah, it's bib time.
Never seen anything quite like that cooker,the firebox alone is porn.
The fit and finish and detail of that cooker in person must be something!
