My new Gator Pit Party Gator!

  1. I just picked up my new Party Gator by Gator Pit of Texas! It's a 24X42 with a fixed grill top on the firebox which will be seasoned up like a cast iron skillet, gas assist and tuning plates. Things are about to get smokey around here!

    a real beaut.

    Curious, what are those cooking devices in the background ?

    Perhaps you should line everything up for a "group shot".[​IMG]

    Firepit, when you get the griddle top seasoned up, fetch some Blackened Redfish Magic. That hot griddle will make some awesome Blackened Tilapia, Red Snapper, etc.

    Then it's on to homemade patty melts !! 

    Brown the patties, griddle the onions and toast the Rye bread all on one surface...[​IMG]
     
  11. Thank you, I'm seasoning it today. A WSM 22.5, Akorn and a Weber Performer Gold is hiding under wraps back there. A "group shot" sounds like a great idea! :biggrin:
     
  12. I've never tried BR Magic. Just looked it up and I'm definitely getting some. Thanks for the tips!!!

    They make some great pits how long did you have to wait to get it made?  I have met rich down at Gator and can tell you from what I have seen his pits are second to none.
     
  14. Thank you, it's a mighty fine pit.The wait time for mine was almost seven months. I think they got behind because of the show they did that ran on Discovery Channel and Destination America. Even though it was a long wait, I'm happy with the build quality.

    Congrats! Great looking pit!!!
     
  16. Nice looking pit - can't wait to see the food you cook on it.  Did you also get the new exercise equipment accessory to the pit?  You know it is important to increase the level of exercise in all your family members to compensate for all the great food they will be eating...

    Great looking pit! That grill on the firebox is making great use of 'wasted' heat. Can't wait to hear how it cooks.
     
  19. Thanks! I've got bacon grease on the grill as we speak while the pit is seasoning.
     
  20. You ain't kidding, lol. After each cook, I plan on pushing that heavy sucker around the patio. That should be a great workout! :biggrin:

    Thanks! I plan on smoking on it next weekend. I can't wait!!!
