BBQ Equipment - The Pit Builders

OK. I know I've posted this before, but that was over a year ago. Here's an updated list of the pit builders, smoker manufacturers, barbecue makers and grill builders, all in one handy dandy spot. I wish I could take credit for the creation of this list, but the credit goes to my friend Zilla over on the National Barbeque News Forums.

Below is a list that I have been compiling for a while now. 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.

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 here or on the National Barbeque News 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'er spending the money not them.
  • If your not comfortable with a builder try another one.

Rob,

Thanks for the list. You should know that the Meadow Creek Welding link is broken. And my site actually has quite a bit more Meadow Creek information on it than theirs does.

You can check it out at www.smokymtbarbecue.com. We're the leading online distributor for Meadow Creek.


Thanks,
Lavern
