    Hello to all, looking for a pit builder in michigan or around northern Ohio/Indiana area. Something like a Lang 48 , yoder witchita etc. Google has let me down so i hope im in the right place to ask the question.

    I'm in Minnesota and we are in a pit builders desert in the northern part of the country. My first trailer pit was built by a independent fab guy in Texas. I'm having another one built by Arizona BBQ Outfitters in Tuscon which should be done in about a month. Not sure what you want exactly but I see Lang's turn up on craigs list around here every so often.

    If you are looking for something custom and built right prepare to travel south or south west.

    Shirley fabrication is what i have been looking at 24x42 cabinet cooker to be exact. it would be for home and some larger get togethers of 50.I hear alot about the langs and yoders and a buddy of mine has a yoder but the shirley seems to call my name just didnt know if there were any local guys making those kinds of pits i like to deal local first. Thanks for the replies. good luck on your pit 3montes.

    Found the same thing I'm in southern Michigan, so I built my own. Even paying for 3/8 steel pipe saved quite a bit of money. I know you can get a horizon at bass pro but that's as good as I found without paying an arm and leg for shipping. Good luck!

    Thanks for the help everyone. Prestonk08 were did you get 3/8 pipe if you dont mind me asking. I have a back ground in welding its been awhile but i think i could fab something up if the price was right.

    Got the pipe from Galloup. It's a piping company in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids. They have mostly 20" pipe. I wanted 24 but I guess they don't get it that often. Hard to find around our parts. It was and is fun making it. I'm almost done with mine.
