The R & O smokers are very nice and the Ritter's are great people to work with. I purchased a backwoods gator from them a year ago and they built me a custom cart for it that is awesome. They pay good attention to detail and make very sharp look pits. Not sure if you have seen the custom pit they built for themselves, but the blue trailer is the one they built specifically for them to compete on. Also, the green pit was built for the co-owner and is a very sharp pit.

If something happens and you need to look at another maker. JP makes some bad ass pits. More along the looks of a Jambo.

I don't know. He did modify the intakes on the firebox and insulated the door. I'd like to find a source for those boiler thingies he is using. He turns them to adjust the air flow. Pretty cool mod, I thought.

An update on this, we went with a pit from East Texas Smoker Company. http://easttexassmokercompany.com/

We're getting an RK250 with red trailer, double insulated fire box, star burners and propane start. The toughest part was simply finding someone who could get something done in our very tight time frame.

The pitmaker Sniper is a stick burner... and the grillmeister you can burn stick in as well... Give Pete a call on Monday, he'll hook you up! (800) 299-9005

Would've leaned towards R&O if they could've gotten it done in time. Great people, great pits. Bought my Backwoods Fatboy from them two years ago when they were just about to start making their own. I'll have a trailer pit someday and have it narrowed down to R&O, Gator, or Jambo.
