Custom pit builder in or near Houston?

Postby branden77 » Sat Mar 19, 2016 10:46 am

I am looking to build a custom pit, but can not decide on the best builder. I am looking for someone to build me a stick burner, with quality craftsmanship and at least 1/4" pipe. Who is the best in or around Houston that wont cost an arm and a leg??
Thanks

Gator posted a link with a lot of the Builders links on it just the other day. I'll see if I can find his post before someone else does. :laughing7:

FOUND IT - - - you might browse thru these and then maybe call some of them and bounce your ideas around Good Luck :tup:

Thanks for your help! Do you have any experience with any of the Houston area builders?

You should also consider going over and talking to the folks at Klose BBQ Pits. They are quality built.

+1 for Dave Klose, mine was a phenomenal cooker. Just allocate a lot of time if you talk to Dave directly - takes him about 2 days just to say hello. His assistant Dana is great and can fix you up.

Lots of good choices above + Gator Pits is a long standing and well regarded builder in Houston. I also happen to know he is a good guy too.

So I just ordered a grill from Gator Pits. I have first hand seen the quality of their work and it is good. I'm concerned, however, that I can get the same quality elsewhere for a cheaper price. I'm not trying to be cheap....just get the most for my dollar. Compared to other Houston based grill manufacturers, is there anything that sets gator pits ahead of other grill fabricators? I've seen a similar product from Pits by JJ.
