that is an oustanding cooker the detail is awsome I would refurb the lid and rebuild the base and frame for low n slow cooks and you would really have something gr8 find if you have the cash think powder coating it really holds the heat

Don't know who makes it, but here is a photo from 73 with it in it.

What you need to do is realize how disgusting it would be for an LSU fan to celebrate the Arkansas Razorbacks with that sitting around your home. Can you imagine the disgust when you pull that out on Saturdays this fall.......oh the shame!!!!

Now do the right thing and send it up here to me in NW Arkansas.......the HOME of the Razorbacks........and I'll give it the home it deserves.......where it will be celebrated, not cussed........revered, not disdained.

PM me for shipping info.......

Thanks everyone for comments. I would like to have it restored. Thanks Rexbbq for the photo link. I asked my mother-in-law, if that was her in the photo. She is still laughing. Hogfan, I'm sorry, but the grill will stay in SE Arkansas. There are Razorback fans that live in that part of the state. I will tell you that they are not happy about the LSU game being moved to Fayetteville, but that is for another website and forum. Any suggestions on restoration will be appreciated.

I don't know but it might be the same guy who built this one. Hope this isn't a trend.

Glad it's in AR.......but it pains me to see the owner wearing an LSU shirt <smile>.

Good luck with the restoration. Will powder coat take the heat?

Caseydog,

I'm guessing by your comments that you must be an SMU fan. LOL

But it is a cool grill that I would be proud to add to my arsenal.

If you read the note on the back of the photo it says the pic was taken in the booth of Portable Kitchens from Jacksonville, AR. Also says gas or electric. Never knew PK made anything gas or electric.

The history of Portable Kitchens and Jacksonville Mfg. are entertwined. Jacksonville Mfg made Club aluminum products and later Kitchen Fair aluminum products; both being heavy cast aluminum pots and pans that were teflon lined. I always suspected that PK used Jacksonville Mfg's casting lines to make their grills.

I thought I remembered seeing one of these grills in a history of Jacksonville story from back when I worked in Jacksonville and recently confirmed this with an ole buddy who worked for Jacksonville Mfg. He remember seeing one of these in a pic there.

Thanks for the info. If anyone knows a person, who worked for PK or Jacksonville Manufacturing back then, send me a PM. I'm looking for some parts for this pit they may have stored away in their garage.
