New Build Coming

Postby Bockbock » Tue Sep 20, 2022 7:39 am

Hey all, my buddy and I are getting ready to build a new pit out of a 55" long pipe with a 41" diameter. My question is, warming box or no warming box. I plan on using this to cater with. Just trying to get some opinions. I was doing some research and Lone Star Grillz had some cool ideas for the warming box directly above the fire box. They put a plate in there that can be removed so you can cook directly in the warmer box if you would want to. Thanks.

I know nothing about Catering BBQ but I have Catered a few events with other Foods.
However, it seems to me that the "warming box" would sure be an asset to your Operation :dont:
Good Luck to you :tup: :salut: :texas:

Are you building a reverse flow or traditional offset?

Thank you Sir!
I would place it over the firebox and rely on the radiant heat from the firebox to heat it.
You could add a slide damper to open the top of the firebox to it for grilling but personally I would utilize it strictly as a warmer not for cooking.
