Default Looks like Gator Pit is about to hit the TV Mainstreem

Kinds of the Grill on dsicory channel June 26th at 10pm

This will probably bump up his orders 10 fold. If you have been on the fence about ordering you should probably do it before this airs to avoid a long wait.

Unfortunately I am currently saving and have been considering Gator Pit as a strong candidate but I wont be able to place a order until fall.

-- “KING OF THE GRILL” Premieres Wednesday, June 26th at 10 PM ET/PT --

(NEW YORK) – Discovery Channel travels to Houston, Texas, America’s barbeque heartland, for its new special “KING OF THE GRILL. Meet Ritch Robin, owner of Gator Pit of Texas, as he creates the most out-of-this-world, high-tech grills and smokers. From a Houston Texans football team cooker to fully customized West Coast Customs “Bigg Dane” cooker, watch as he faces the pressure to build the next, one-of-a-kind grill for his clients - all while working alongside his eccentric family and friends. The hour-long special, “KING OF THE GRILL, premieres Wednesday, June 26th at 10 PM ET/PT.

“KING OF THE GRILL” follows Ritch Robin as he builds a custom grill for his new client Galactic Coast Brewing. The owners plan to launch their new line of craft beer at space-themed launch party, but The Event is only 5 days away and this leaves Ritch under a crushing deadline. Never ones to back down from a challenge, Ritch and his team design and build an 18-foot BBQ grill replicating a space shuttle complete with three working thrusters that shoot 10-foot flames into the air. It’s a race against the clock, complicated by a surprise visit from Ritch’s 73-year-old mother. Can Ritch make the deadline or will this extreme custom grill go up in “smoke”?
“KING OF THE GRILL” is produced for Discovery Channel by Wholly Cow Productions with Rick Silver, Lisa Silver, Marcus Fox and Ryan Senter serving as executive producers. For Discovery Channel, John Moffet is executive producer and Zander Kanefield is associate producer.

Are most of the places that sell BBQ pits a "build to order" or do they have "floor models" that are readily available?

Most of the custom builders don't build it till you order it. They will have some standard models you can choose from but they typically don't have any sitting around.

a lot of them are floor models out there with a couple tiers to choose from.

Companies like Lang, Gator, Jambo, Klose etc.. will build you custom or give you a template with options to choose ala cart from with your build.

From looking around, Lang seems to have more you can buy and get shipped to relatively quickly while a company like Gator Pit makes it from scratch and it will take more time.

Checking out those 4 would be a good start to finding a custom pit,
I have not ordered one yet but those are the main ones I look at and all have good feedback
