List of Custom Pit builders

* Special shout out to Zilla and OSD for creating and maintaining this list over the years.

I posted this list on quite a few forums over the past few years and thought you guys might like a copy of the updated list here. Enjoy....

Below is a list of Custom BBQ Pit Makers that I have been compiling since 2005. The intention of this list is to provide basic contact information of custom pit builders, to anyone thinking of buying a heavy duty/handmade BBQ Pit, with a few exceptions. Feel free to suggest others not listed here. Thanks to all the guys that have sent new names to me. As of 1-10-2010 all of the links below were working.

Tips on using this list.

- For most of us buying a handmade BBQ pit is a big investment so take your time, do your homework and look at all of the products the different builders have to offer and what the various pits cost.

- Post questions on the forum about options (needed and wanted) to get some feedback from more experienced folks.

- Make a decision on a price limit.

- Consider which design makes the most sense for the way YOU will use the pit.

- Start with the builders closest to your home state to help save on shipping costs. Then study the products and prices, call and ask questions to determine which builder can give you what you want.

- Make a detailed specification list and send it to several builders for quotes. Get exact quotes in writing before any work starts.

- Don't let a builder talk you into or out of anything. You’re spending the money not them so make sure you get what you want and don’t be afraid to walk away and find another builder.

- If you’re not comfortable with a builder try another one.

If you're okay crossing the state line, check out Craig Bell of Bell Fabrications in Tulsa , OK. Once I convince my boss (wife), I hope to place an order for my dream cooker this summer. It'll probably be 30 cents on dollar for what you'd pay at Klose, Gator, and Lone Star. He's had a good rep for a solid decade. I'll keep you posted if and when I order as well as take delivery!!
