Seems a little pricey for a Brinkman. For a thousand more you can get a Geer pit.

I can think of at least 5 pit makers I would contact before I would buy a Brinkman anything for $6k

Klose
Gator Pit
Spicewine
Backwoods
Carolina Grills

And the list would go on and on... $0.02

Ya, I agree. I'm savin for the Klose personally....and the longer it takes me to save, I've noticed the my intentions keep leaning to the side of "Saving for a bigger one!" Anyone else have that problem?

My thought - Horizon. At the Pork BBQlossal prob. 40% were cooking on them. Here's one for $5500 - looks like the Brinkmann you are thinking about.
24"

I think Lonestar is the company that hired Steve Bates from Bates Pits. I've heard a lot of good things about their pits. I'd buy one of those before I'd get a brinkman.

Do you have your heart set on an offset? How many are you planning on feeding, do you plan on competing, do you plan on doing overnight cooks do you want to get some sleep on the overnight cooks or do you really, really, really want to tend to a pit all night. For the money you're looking at spending you should also consider these pits if tending the fire isn't #1 on your priority list:

1. Backwoods Smokers
2. Spicewine Smokers
3. FEC 100 (cookshack)
4. Stumps Smokers

All of the smokers listed above are vertical smokers, will allow you to cook all night long and get some sleep and will save you 3-4 K over the Brinkman. For that price you could also get 30 WSM's as well and cook for an Army!

I just want to make it clear that I never intended to buy the Brinkman. I was just curious to here what other people thought about it. I didnt even know they made towable rigs.
