Looking for a up-grade

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok, I have reeeeaaaaly enjoyed my char-griller pro, but I am thinking of upgrade. I would like the new smoker to have more space and be made of thicker, longer lasting metal. I like the side fire-box way of cooking. Again I like my char-griller, but it is starting to get a little worn. Budget $800 to $1,000. I live in North Central florida, so any local dealers advice would be helpful. Actually, any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance. -Smokinggator

This is a little more than your budget, but well worth the $$$. They are built in SE Ga.

Stumps was running a special on his "baby" stumps for $1,000. Bet you could find a used one a little cheaper...not sure if the space would be what you want or not.

Thanks for the input. I will research the Lang and the Horizon. There are Bass shops in Orlando and I like the fact that I can see what I am buying before purchasing. Also, if I go that route, I will save shipping. I have looked on craiglist and other type sites, and nothing has really come up. I did look at a used Tucker that was on the side of the road. It was $1,500 (new about $3,000) and need some replacements parts, but I didn't think it was quite what I was looking for. It sold before I had finished my research, so I never got a chance to make an offer. Anyway, Thanks again. -Smokinggator

I'm not sure you'll save on shipping. I have looked at BPS for Horizon smokers and found that they ship to you and charge the same as buying directly from Horizon. They have the 16" in store, that's it.

You might want to check with Bellfab over in Tulsa. I picked up a 24x36 of 5/16 steel from him about a month ago and he was working with a freight company dock to dock for less than $200. His standard 24x36 at that time was $450.

I also have a bellfab, if you want a conventional offset his prices are hard to beat
24 x 48 for $700 out of 5/16 steel, his trailer units cost less than most other companies want for a 24 x 42 patio style.

don't get me wrong I would have loved to have a lang but $2000 for a pit for backyard use is a little much, If I ever get serious about comp or vending then I will strive for a jambo but a lang is one hellava nice second fiddle lol.
