I did wrestle back and forth on going with a bigger pit, but right now I'm on a tight budget (essential federal employee working for free since last Tuesday) and I had to work on my wife for a while to get this pit. It's amazing how she can see the value of a high dollar purse, but not a high quality smoker. Once I've gotten to the point where I'm putting out a good product on this smoker and throw a few family gatherings, I'll easily be able to justify going with a bigger rig in a few years without any fuss from the wife.

A good pit builder for sure. You'll have a lot of fun with that rig.

I understand that it might be tough, but I would really encourage you to go larger, even if it meant waiting.

Or look at Craigslist daily. This pit was for sale in San Diego for $1500. I mentioned it to an acquaintance of mine in San Francisco and he ended up buying it. It probably cost nearly $1500 just to ship it from Houston to San Diego when it was new.

@ RangerJ, I found a little more room in the budget to change my order from a 20 x 30 to a 20 x 36. Not too much bigger but I guess every little bit of cooking space can make a difference.

I bought the exact same smoker this summer off of a brethren in Atlanta. Spent a few hours cleaning rust and it is a machine. Love it. I'm surprised more pitmakers don't use the direct grill firebox. It's a great idea for a patio cooker.

Klose makes a great product, and they're built to last. I also use my firebox grill grates fairly often.
