Im afraid to even ask how much shipping is from houston. Ill probably go and get it.................then again with the price of gas it might be cheaper to have it sent one way. Oh i cant wait to order it though....and im a newbie to smoking. db

oh and the point i was going to make was what that guy above said.....I would just call Dave Klose www.bbqpits.com and try to afford it. I feel your pain! db

I thought smoke was illegal in Calif, unless you were illegal too.

How come we don't have a builders link on our forum?

Call the company and ask if they will be coming to any local comps. Hawgeyes brings Horizon pits - at least they did to Qlossal. You could meet them at the comp and save a little $$$. Couldn't hurt to ask.
