    Leading the sheltered life I have , I don't get to see many cookers so my wife and I got some pics from the state fair yesterday. Thought I'd share.

    The Ox roast place had this :

    The biggest set-up was from Dinosaur BBQ :

    Big stick burner :



    Just beans at the time [​IMG]



    Overview , those silver things are all rotisary cookers , one for ribs , one for butts , and one for chicken. Saw the pit master checking ribs with the "Bend test " and some came out and some went back in [​IMG]



    One more set ......

    Saw this ugly little thing , but it smelled good so we grabbed a pic or two and moved on :



    Came back later and they had the lid open [​IMG]








    Place was called Mountain View Restaurant / Hog Wild Catering.
    Guy says they pull the pig around 6 pm each day . So I stopped back , wife kept the camera for some clogg dancers she went to [​IMG]
    But I got to see the process , pull off the skin and then just grabbing chunks of meat and into the pans it went. Free samples were offered to anyone watching . It was great !!!

    Thanks for looking ,

    Phil

    Klose pits are bad to da bone. Lang's competition IMO. Langs are a bit more efficient I'd think, but both of them are top notch machines.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. [​IMG]

    I always think of Langs as mass produced and Klose as custom jobs.....I know that isn't %100 accurate, but that is how it is filed in my feeble mind. Both have great reputations.

    Are those counter weights on the doors to make them easier to open?

    Yup. If you seen the door in person, you'd know why LOL!

    If you go this year , the place with the pig is in the same Isle as the ox roast place. Guy said they pull their pig around 6 pm each day [​IMG] Beef sammies for lunch , fresh pig sammies for dinner [​IMG] Oh , and two tents past the pig is the only place that has regular Bud in cans , most other places only have "diet Bud " [​IMG]

    PS. Dino ain't doing no brisket , guys said "It's too much work" Chicks , ribs , and pulled pork ( $ 6 / sammich )

    I'm with you Phil on the "lite" beer, if you're drinking beer that says lite, then you're not drinking beer. [​IMG]

    Wow, that's a pretty beefy set up just for the door weights alone.

    Not a clue who's runnin' the show 'cause I don't know who's who there [​IMG]

    Sounds like a KISS deal to me [​IMG]
    Extra cutting / pulling station and all that [​IMG]
    Was glad to see the guy checking ribs by bend rather than time [​IMG]
