Exclamation Is this Pit worth $4,000?

I have never really shopped around for large pits to know if this is a good deal or not.

This is a 4 rack rotisserie with stainless steel shelves. Each rack is 14" x 60". The firebox is across the whole back has one leaver to operate the air intake.

I think that is a great looking pit. I would think if they have a track record locally, it is worth the money.

*IF* you are looking to buy a brand new pit locally, I would consider D Tillery at www.mrcustomsteel.com. I've seen his work and it's nice, even building this type of pit with the rear located firebox. I've not seen him use rotisseries though. Not trying to say anything bad about Region Welding, but it's always good to have options to compare.

It has been used twice and stored indoors. It was made last year.

It's on a trailer and has a rotisserie. If it cooks well, then I'd say yes. Then again, if it doesn't cook well then it's not even worth the time you've already spent contemplating the decision.

Regardless of it's worth, you already know to NOT offer him full asking price...right? :-)

What are you going to do with it? Do you need a pit that big?

I am asking for my boss. He would like it to cook for our shop employees a couple times a year. He would also use it for tailgate parties and the superbowl.

Probably overkill, but it's his money...
