That’s right, you heard correctly. Rick is retiring and doing it soon. This means his custom smoker has to go.
Are you tired of those little round offset smoker rigs? The ones where it takes 20 pounds of charcoal to do 10 pounds of meat? With all the hot spots and horrible engineering? Or are you interested to see of smoking meat with real wood makes a difference over a propane rig?
Well, now’s your chance. Rick is selling his custom barbecue pit. This has been the envy of all customers and people such as myself, a fellow pitmaster for years.
In the last 2.5 years he’s put approximately 16,000 pounds of meat through it successfully. It’s optimum capacity is at 100 pounds of product, but can be pushed to 125 safely. How many pounds of briquettes does it take to smoke 100 pounds worth? Approximately 20 pounds with 5 pounds of cooking wood (larger chunks about the size of a softball). Once familiar with it you can get it to maintain a temperature of 150F to 400F with very little effort, reliably. This smoker comes with racks, hooks and dowels. These racks, hooks and dowels were cleaned after each use. There are vents for intake and exhaust that can be regulated easily.
The following image gives you an approximate idea as to the size of the smoker.
Rick is asking $1025.00 obo. What this means is, if you’re interested, you call Rick and talk to him about it. Please don’t call and waste his time with offers of 300 dollars, it won’t happen and you’ll make a butcher mad. Please don’t make the butcher mad.
He’s available during regular business hours Tuesday through Friday.
