Old Country Pits out of Laredo?

Postby DUMP-TRUCK BBQ » Tue Apr 20, 2010 11:53 pm

Anyone out there own one of their pits?

I know Academy carries a thinner gauged version of the 16" & 20" backyard pits and was curious if anyone owned a custom-built 1/4" version and how they might compare to a Gators, Klose or Horizon.

Thanks much!

I think the quality is more comparable to a Lyfe Tyme or Tejas. You will get a pit with weld beads, not ground as "custom" looking as the higher end pits (at least from my last look). They are actually made in Mexico and are good pits. Uvalco down in Uvalde has them make their private label pits. Excellent pit for the money!

So, it's safe to say for me to even consider a 1/4" 20 x 30-40 smoker, with the price of steel, etc...I can expect to pay at least $1,400+ :roll:

Obviously, price is a huge consideration. Would love to afford a custom, but my wife and paychecks say otherwise.

Forget the Laredo pits. Get a Gator Budget.

I think Old Country would run just shy of a grand. Have you checked out his site?

Actually quite a bit, which led me to ask the question. I think I meant to say for those builds other than Old Country I'm looking at an extra $300-$500.

I've started talking to Marsha at Lyfe Tyme, so that may be another option as well.

Any others besides Klose, Gator, LT, OC, Big Hat and East TX (think they do portable rigs only) ?

Those Big Hat pits sure look nice and are priced a bit better. I was really considering one before I found my almost-new Gator.

I can't always please everybody. I'm not bacon.
