Below is a list of Custom BBQ Pit Makers that I have been compiling since 2005. The intention of this list is to provide basic contact information of custom pit builders, to anyone thinking of buying a heavy duty/handmade BBQ Pit, with a few exceptions. Feel free to suggest others not listed here. Thanks to all the guys that have sent new names to me. As of 1-10-2010 all of the links below were working.
Tips on using this list.
- For most of us buying a handmade BBQ pit is a big investment so take your time, do your homework and look at all of the products the different builders have to offer and what the various pits cost.
- Post questions on the forum about options (needed and wanted) to get some feedback from more experienced folks.
- Make a decision on a price limit.
- Consider which design makes the most sense for the way YOU will use the pit.
- Start with the builders closest to your home state to help save on shipping costs. Then study the products and prices, call and ask questions to determine which builder can give you what you want.
- Make a detailed specification list and send it to several builders for quotes. Get exact quotes in writing before any work starts.
- Don't let a builder talk you into or out of anything. Youíre spending the money not them so make sure you get what you want and donít be afraid to walk away and find another builder.
- If youíre not comfortable with a builder try another one.
