Default Which pit to get for $2k-3k?

If you had $2000-3000 to spend on a trailered pit what would you get?

-Not catering
-Want to compete in the future
-Want a high enough capacity that I can feed a good size family gathering.

Thanks for the input

Well, no more often than probably 2-3 sticks an hour. Less often would be nice, but not realistic I guess.

You are in Texas, Lang is the obvious answer. I don't know how far the Lang factory is from you but dang. Make a day of it and get the grand tour, buy the best of the best that will last your lifetime.

Slam dunk if you ask me.....

lang 60" likely in your range... meadow creek or peoria custom cookers may be in your range for a trailered pit, but shipping/logistics may add cost.

others you might want to check in Texas are gator pits, klose pits, jj pits ,pitts & spitts, pitmaker but I think any of those are all out of your $$ range... I'm sure there are other fabricators in TX that I just am not familiar with that others would be..

Good luck

The first thought... offset mobile... don't know of a trailered cabinet smoker in that price range.
Altho I'm a fan of Lang's...which a new 60 mobile is in your price range...
and you're in Texas... I'd give Dave Klose a consideration, too.

Had a suggestion until you threw in the "trailered" part. Not many brand name trailered pits in that price range.

Watch for a good used one in that $$ range.

You obviously have a lot of money burning a hole in your pocket, or you have a lot of people to feed, because if you don't want to compete, you can make some awesome Q for well under 500 bucks. But, if you have to have a pricey cooker on your patio, you won't go wrong with a Klose, made in Houston.

Um, isn't Lang in Georgia? That would be a heck of a field trip! Perhaps you meant to say Klose?

If so, then yes. I know one of the nicest pits I have seen is in Texas. I believe you are right and it is Klose.

Thanks for the correction.
