    Never heard of Lone Star Custom Pits but when I Googled it they said they have closed their doors. So many custom pit makers in Texas it's no wonder. That thing is a bloody work of art. I'd just back that onto my back patio, take off the wheels, build a skirt around it and have it as my outdoor kitchen. Sweeeet !!!

    Troutman they did close their doors awhile back because he moved here to Minnesota. This was the last pit they turned out and they built it like they meant it. Now he's ready to let go of it. I do a lot of event cooking for large groups but I would have to up the game substantially to justify having this beast around. The catering company who did my sons wedding 3 years ago told me if I ever wanted to do cooking for him to let him know he would love to have the opportunity to add authentic bbq to his catering services.

    I just became fully retired a couple months ago. Not sure I'd want to get into officially catering full time at this point even knowing how much I love doing events. I'm going to mull this over a week or two.

          That is a serious cooker.

          Ya might try taking the caterer up on his offer, but tell him you will only be available "X" times a month because you are retired and not lookin' for full time.

              I'd rather not divulge the asking price right now. I've known this rig has been available for awhile. He had it on CL about a year ago so I kept his contact number on my phone. Once my vertical/Santa Maria rig sold it got me thinking about this one. I contacted him and found it was still available.

              I am going to ponder all this over the weekend, probably make contact with the caterer next week and see if it's still a avenue he wants to explore. Lots to consider. He may want me to stop everything else I'm doing and run all my other private party stuff through him, who knows?

              As someone suggested I could tell him not to book more than 2 barbecue gigs a month so I don't get deeper than I want to.
              Maybe by Monday the MCS rage may subside a bit

                Seems you ought to be able to set some kind of part-time boundaries. How often is that kind of firepower going to be appropriate? The nice thing is that given that this caterer is established, he's got the approvals and insurance and so on that would be a real drain on your time and brain going out on your own. Big benefit there.

                EdF you are spot on about the caterer being established and having all the licenses etc. Plus he is just 30 minutes from me over the border into Wisconsin where catering and food vending life is much easier. This smoker or any of my other rigs would not pass in Minnesota for vending or catering. They are not NSF. I would never try to get a catering license at this stage of the game in Mn.

                About 10 years ago I spent a lot of time on the phone with the health department trying to get a straight answer on what I had to do to get smokers approved for food service. Every time I talked to someone I would get different answers to the same questions. So many contradictory regulations that even the inspectors didn't know which regs applied to a given situation.

                Wisconsin is just the opposite. You can pretty much park your rig and hang your shingle out and start business.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill
                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                kareubequ bbq smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
