I've posted them a few times - havnt seen anyone on here get one. Looks Decent for the price but probally won't run on charcoal well or it'll get expensive feeding it. It'd do well as a stick burner.

For really small businesses/start up social media is a great free web presence vs paying money for a website when capital is tight and priority for spending is elsewhere.

Plenty of companies have started on social media as their web presence until they grew enough where a true website was needed to grow the business even further.

Facebook had 1.71 billion monthly active users in the second quarter of 2016, I'd say you are wrong:wink:

Ah, I read your post as all of Facebook was a joke, not just one page within Facebook.
Looking at that particular page it says that Boat House are very responsive and typically reply in minutes. They phone number is there too.
Why don't you contact them?

I am sure they are responsive. But, I am starting the research process and prefer to browse at my leisure. Here is an example of what I am talking about: http://www.horizonbbqsmokers.com/ This is done right, from where I come from. Products are clearly described/spec'd and the the price is disclosed up front.

My name is Badger Jacob. I am lead fabricator at Boathouse Smokers. We are located on the banks of the Amite river in the swamps of South Louisiana. We build a variety of cookers, grills, smokers and rotisseries. We do have a website, but have not yet went live with it because we currently can not keep up with demand. In the peak of summer we stay with a 3-4 months backlog. I would be happy to assist anyone with any questions that they may have.

Thanks for taking the time out to post.

Understandable that you don't want to be swamped with orders.

They run great on charcoal. You can get 5 1/2 hours at 225 from 12 lbs of charcoal. I normally start with a bed of briquettes then add wood as need to maintain. Normally only takes 2-3 small pieces of wood to maintain. I use mine for 18 hours cook often.
