Hang in there tel1 I've been where your at thinking the day would never come don't know what your cooking on now but your going to be getting one hell of a pit if you haven't seen one live the YouTube videos and pics on the website just don't do these pits  justice how thick the steel is  how tight the doors are the welds are like works of art  The quality that Rich  demands on all the pits that come out of his shop are unreal I love mine I've had it  since December every time I walk by it, I just think about what's the next thing I'm cooking on it for the weekend  "So Hang In There Man" be patient with Rich if you could get it quick you wouldn't get the quality welcome to the Gator pit family  T-up

Thanks for the comments there Steve.  I know patience wears thin.  Trust me when I say this, if I could turn our our products any faster and keep the quality of design we are known for and what our customers ultimately want, I WOULD.  But, to rush orders out, just risks quality.  I would prefer a customer be upset with waiting and happy with quality when the Gator arrives versus happy we are getting the order out and pissed with the lesser quality.  The later is what all the others Builders out there do.  And, why most of them have pits in stock ready to purchase and take off the lot.  Cookie Cutter BBQ Pits.  Or, they can turn an order around in a couple weeks or even only a few weeks because they don't have the volume of custom orders Gator Pit has and we have because of our QUALITY that you, Steve, referenced.  THEY DO NOT.  I would put my Gators up along side any out there.  Downside, the WAIT.  And "change orders" play a huge part in that because Gator Pit is true "custom."  What our customers order they can't get anywhere else.  Custom/Design/Quality takes time.

I have ordered true custom over the years:  Guns, holsters, solar screens for my house, trucks/parts.  One pistol took two years from order date.  Two years.  Best freaking pistol I have ever put in my hand and fired a bullet out of.  My home has custom windows.  Had to have solar screens actually custom spec'd, made and fitted.  6 months for the screens.  My Gator Pit truck tricked out like you see in my video was a year in the making.  I was the first 2014 F250 to order a custom bumper from Road Armor.   Even the air bags had to have custom made brackets to mount.  Bumper had to have more fabrication work done just to attach it.  Took two months to get the bumper.

Guess this long azz comment is simply to say, ALL WAS WORTH WHAT I PAID AND WHAT I HAD TO DO TO GET IT.    And, once I got it, I quickly forgot about the wait and enjoyed and appreciated it more.  I know not everyone has what I have and that makes it even better.  :)

I can honestly say being on a waiting list does give you time to think about what you really want. Yes the upgrades cost but this is a one time deal, the pit will last you a lifetime. I just wish i had more life left!  {yes]%3
