Help Backyard stick burner

I want to buy a really great stick burner for my backyard. I will go up to 5 or 6 thousand. Been looking at Jambo, Pittts and Spitts, Gator.

Any thoughts on these brands and any others? I want to be able to cook competition quality food!!!!

For that kind of a budget, you should be able to get an awesome pit. Trust me, we are very lucky to live in an area surrounded by some great pit builders. In the Houston area, in addition to the ones you mentioned, do check out Klose and Lone Star Grillz (Conroe) for sure. I have not seen Gator or Big Bear in person, but they do look good in the pictures I have seen and they have solid reputations for sure. I have heard good and bad on Pits and Spits, but I am sure they are just fine. You cannot go wrong with any of them. You should go visit with each builder and see their work in person to see what works best for you and who you are most comfortable with and who click with more. Be sure to get an idea of how long it will take them to build your pit before putting your money down. Some builders will have longer build lists than others, so builder choice might just come down to who can get it done sooner.

with all of the good Houston area builders around, I see no reason to travel far for a quality stick burner, but if you insist on that route, Jambo is a good way to go, but you will pay a premium. I am not sure if it is worth it, and I am certain that you can get something here just as quality, but probably not as flashy. Jambo pits have a solid reputation and are greatly helped by the BBQ Pitmasters show. Their calling card is their insulated fire box as well as some fancy metal work. Most of the local builders can hook you up with an upgraded fire box that is better insulated than standard.

Another well regarded out of town company is Shirley Fabrication in Alabama

But honestly, with the great builders in the Houston area, I would see no reason to go out of town to buy from Jambo or Shirley. Cooking competition quality food, though, is up to the cook, not the cooker.

If I had that kind of budget, I would get a tricked out Klose.

I have a Big Bear pit and love it . I would recommend you give Joe a call(281) 507-1090. They are a great group of guys and build a heck of a pit.

Texasflag4 insulation

just stumbled on your post, as I'm about to start a thread for a small trailer pit I'm currently building.


All pits mentioned herein are well worth the consideration. I've cooked on a successful BBQ team for almost 7 years now and I've switched over to insulated pits about 3 years ago, after converting my pipe pit over to an insulated pit. After being spoiled by cooking on insulated pits for nearly 3 years now, I'd never switch back....If I were you, I'd heavily consider a Pitmaker Vault (Made in Houston). You can get out the door for around $3,900 with an automotive style paint job on the exterior.


If you want to go the pipe-pit style, then there is another good manufacturer "Main Street Pits" in LaMarque, TX.


Happy Shopping!
