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
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
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.
