Fired my 37" Open Pit Grill for the 1st Time

I'll make another post about how I like my new cookers as a whole but tonight I played with a new toy.

On one of my Peoria Custom Cookers I had them add a 37" Round Open Pit Grill which was a very new option. It's awesome and will be a jaw dropper.

Everything is top notch welds and per-sizz-yawn!

This shot shows the Pit on the front of "My" pit which is a 72" x 24" meat Chamber with 2'x2' Offset firebox. On the side is 6' by 2'x2' storage.

Another shot of the pit. Oh, I still need to season and fire that smoker. Doh!

In this pic you can see the weed torch....I love my weed torch but I digress
That pit over there is the same as this one but not Grill. I have another that is narrow and [2] Propane Fish Fryers on the front as well as a 180,000 BTU gas burner in firebox. [My partner owns a Crabhouse]

And what not slap some big ole steaks on it?!?!?!?!?!?!

3 hours in the butts are looking nice.

I'll move them around a little but no foil...Chef Paul would backslap me.

Foil and Boil are 4 letter words

Mike, I'm curious. Why two cookers instead of going with a bigger tube, say 36"? Those are nice looking pits . I have been watching their ads in the KCBS Bullsheet. Alot of the detail is similar to Klose. I know you post on the Klose forum, did you consider Klose? I'm guessing the price on Peoria is much more favorable?

I went with [3] pits instead of 1 large pit for the fact that my new catering company would need to be in more than one spot at the same time.

I love Dave Klose and his pits but it was all about cost. I bought 3 pits for about what [1] Klose pit would cost. I didn't mention my pits on Dave's board out of respect for Dave and his fine pits. In fact I want one still. I want a Chef Paul Kirk Chuckwagon bit at about $16,000 but I bought all 3 pits from Peoria Custom Cookers for that amount.

Afte I send pics of me and my [3] PCC you will be seeing me in the Ad in the Bullsheet I think.

That is very good reasoning for sure.

Now where are the finished pics.

And I agree with Brian J that that was way too much steel for two tiny pieces of meat.
