I love my three Peoria Custom Cookers. They start at $3,800 and are second to none in quality and design.

Where in Virginia are ya'll?

WOW, what a gift. I'm not sure what size but Dave Klose makes a real nice offset stick burner that you can get fo that price. You can also get a Lang 84 with a verticle box for that too.

Good advice Scotty! In my conversations with Wildfire Eric, he has mentioned numerous times that he would love a Primo XL Kamado with a Cypress Table and all the accessories. Mrs. Wildfire Eric you may want to look HERE for more information on the Primo's! You can even bake bread and cakes on them if you are into that type of cooking!

Depends why he wants a mobile pit.

If it's for catering big jobs, size matters a lot. You probably get the most shelf space for the money with an offset. Lang and Peoria are both really good manufacturers. If catering is an important part of the picture, you'll need to get in touch with them and see what you can get for the money, delivered on time, with a bow.

Klose are great pits but Dave has started to charge a fair bit for the Klose name. You can't blame him, he has more orders than he can fill. If money were not an object, and I wanted an offset, I'd go Klose.

If it's for comp, the cabinets are currently kicking "butt" on most of the circuits. They burn steadily and evenly, don't require much tending (that means you can sleep during a comp), use fuel efficiently, and keep the product moist. Downside is you can't overload them, and they don't "look like" smokers.

The big names are Stumps, Backwoods and Spicewine.

Spicewine is the best choice if you want a trailer as part of the deal. I've seen a few, but never used one. The owners were enthusiastic. But based on what I've seen and heard heard Backwoods and Stumps are (slightly) better cookers.

Stumps require even less tending. Backwoods have more options available, and make good use of water pans (I'm a believer.) If a dedicated competition cooker were my birthday present I'd want a Backwoods. Downside for you is that neither of these is really mobile, and will require a separate trailer. When you consider everything you have to shlep to a comp, that's probably not a bad thing.

A lot to think about,
Rich

Without a doubt. You can purchase a Spicewine Large cooker for $2500. It is one of the best made cookers on the market. We love ours. Best of luck to you and happy birthday to hubby.
