    Default Opinions on Pits by JJ?

    These smokers/grills seem to excellently made, durable, and well-constructed. Has anyone heard of them and what do you think?

    I know the guy that owns / runs the place ....He used to work for a major pitbuilder.....left....with secrets/ideas....opened his own place.....I hear the pits are 1/4 " rolled steel....welds arnt very pretty and not alot of grinding done on them.....I would say they are a good to average pit...for a starter pit.........

    Sorry and i know this is an old post! but Redneck cooker is very wrong and I doubt he knows the owner. I do personally know the owner and would rate Pits by JJ much higher than a starter pit. Also the welds are as great as other major builders.

    Interesting first post. I'd like to see some close up pics of those welds just for reference.

    Not a problem Big Ron ... I don't even remember seeing this thread. It would be nice to see some better shots on welds and construction points, but they look like solid pits in the link.

    Any solid comp wins might add some clout, but not necessary. I like the look of their insulated smokers.
