Sounds like a small pit to me. My eyes are bleeding from reading the ad!

I think it's wotrh it but I'd still try to talk down the price. Why? Cheap ba$tard genes.

I have a Cimmaron. It is a pretty well made pit.
It's 16" in diameter, and is either 1/4" or 3/16" steel. I did make some minor mods to it to even the temp out, as there is a serious hot-spot at the firebox end. Mods were to make a better baffle and add 1/4" steel tuning plates to direct the heat and smoke better. Works pretty well now, but still prefer my WSMs.
$200 isn't bad. Offer less, you can always come up.

I have one just like that. It's 1/4 inch steel and was made by Oklahoma Joes in Stillwater right after they sold the business they had to put the new names on their smokers. If it has the extra over lap seal around the doors, it's a good one. I picked mine out off of the production floor with Roger Davidson now of Horizon. All of the horizon mods and accessories will fit. I just got the log lighter and baffle with the holes in it to eliminate the hot spots. Will hold heat rock solid all night without touching it.

Go look at it.
Could get a few bags of cheap charcoal if anything.
