I've also decided, with more thought since, to go with a single door with the counter weight, 12" SS shelf, and steel clips to keep the door closed during transport. He's currently 10 weeks +/- on completion. Couldn't be more please with my experience from meeting and working with Chris.

If it's not too late I'd recommend you increase that to at least a 14" shelf - - - or get them to space the 12" shelf away from the pit 2" or so. The lid's handle will reduce the amount of usable space to a point where full size baking sheets (with a nicely seasoned brisket) will fall on the ground.

TrueTexan wrote:So, I've done lots of looking to make my decision. Pros and cons. Main use is brisket, then whole or half chickens, then pork shoulders. Home entrtaining and lots of tailgating at football games out of town.

Jambo Backyard model - 24x48, insulated firebox on all sides but door, indirect heat, local to me (no shipping cost), 7ga(-3/16 cooking chamber material thickness), 2 doors, built in stops on the hinges and very clean work all around, 2 wheels, temp controlled at stack $1895

Lang - 24x48, fire box and cooking chamber is all 1/4 steel, reverse flow, $550 shipping to me from GA, 1 door, Butt hinges on doors, very mobile with 8" wheels and tires with front swivel casters, pinwheel dampers on fire box
$1895+$550(shipping)

Lonestar grillz - 24x48, fire box and cooking chamber is all 1/4 steel, traditional offset with tuning plates, local, 2 doors (im sure there is an option for $ for 1 door), built in stops on hinges very clean work all around, 4 solid caster wheels
$2050

All are great pits, does jambo cooking chamber thickness offset the insulated firebox?, but cost is great, and lots of great reviews, but none have a video to show it in use. Wheels would be easy to change to larger for a more mobile pit and add front wheels
Lang is great except the extra 550 for shipping
Lonestar grillz is great except the type of wheels for loading on a toy hauler to take anywhere, different set up to get larger wheels, would have to find out what that would cost. $350 for a 1/2" thick firebox, insulated is too much.

Thoughts? Thanks in Advance!



Any updates on your Lone Star purchase?

I'm also looking for a stick burner and considering the same brands plus a couple more.

I'm in Texas too.

Only updates I could give are that Chris was available to meet me on a Saturday being I'm out of town. I was already very familiar with his pits, but he showed me different models and options. After I paid my deposit I made a few changes after and he and his wife were very accommodating and responded very quickly to all my correspondence. That was huge, because being I'm not their only customer, they made me feel as one. I'm very happy to be a soon to be owner of a Lonestar Grillz smoker.

For me; great attention to detail with clean work, quality materials, apples to apples significant price difference to buy a lonestar grillz smoker, and built in Texas. My decision was very easy at the end of the day.

I was wondering if you have the smoker yet ?
And if you do, is it everything you hoped it would be ?
