Default So Klose Yet So Far Away

Well it's finally done. My Klose 6' custom backyard pit is done! But it's still 1600 miles away

I gotta say its been a pleasure to deal with Klose. I am extremely happy it turned out precisely how I asked. I mocked up the a drawing of what I wanted and they nailed it. Sure it's a pretty straight-forward design, but I was picky on the dimensions as well as the placement of things like blower port, racks, etc. Not to mention the vato who worked on it does beautiful welding.

Can't wait to baptize it with some good Canadian swine.

Thanks! I don't really keep the titles of the equipment all that straight. grill, smoker BBQ... I use my smoker all the time for all three so I don't differentiate.

Neither does practically any Canadian I've met, so I won't hold it against you.

God knows I've tried to impress the differences to people, or educate them if you will. They still call it BAR-BUH-QUE!

Klose pits are the bomb. As soon as my old smoker rusts out I am going to make the short drive down there to Houston and pick one up

congrats on the new buy! Bet the shipping of that 500# beast is going to be killer ;o(

500#?

It weighed in at 1350 pounds!!

390lb - 24" OD Pipe
365lb - Firebox
220lb - Square Tube Frame
75lb - Grills
75lb - 3' x Exhaust OD Pipe
70lb - 2 end caps
65lb - 36' angle iron
30lb - wheels

Gas prices went up 25% since I ordered it, so yeah it's killer to ship.

So when is the party?
