I need a pit/smoker

Okay, here in California no one sales or builds a decent BBQ pit/smoker.
All the good pits/smokers are in Texas...and it takes a shiny nickel
to get one shipped out here.
Does anyone know or build pits in California?

Re: I need a pit/smoker

Now whut would make a good local diet for a Klose up there in Colorado? I'm thinking maybe quaking aspens and beeches. Or something like that. Now I know some of the E. Texas grit eaters use Pine to cook bbq. I would certainly not advocate that practice to anybody. I think it supposed to be bad for the health. Now my old chum from down around Breckenridge used to brag on the merits of steak cooked over cedar coals. Who knows?

Shipping costs would not hold up in a court of law.
The pit looks really nice but with depreciation his $2669.65 pit is worth
around $1800 now.
