I finally got around to writing up a review of the cooker we purchased from Peoria Custom Cookers for the Caribbean BBQ Association.

Check it out: Peoria Custom Cooker Review

Since charcoal is the most avaiable fuel, I have to ask why you did not buy a Stumps? My guess is you plan on using alspice wood for an ocassional burn but that is a wild guess.

Hmmm...

I think I found my next patio smoker. It looks like it has most of the features I would build into my own custom unit. Need to start saving now.

How much did that pit cost if you don't mind me asking?

It's in Garry's review and Peoria has base pricing and options listed on their web site.

My only comment about their design is that I would want a bumper or crash bar behind the firebox to protect it from idiots on the highway and my own "skillz" when backing up... Surprised

The Stumps offset is smaller than what we were looking for. Allspice wood is from Jamaica. I'm not aware of it growing here in Puerto Rico. Here, it's mostly mango and almond. Almond wood is good, similar to pecan, but I'm not aware of any place that sells it. A guy is opening a barbecue restaurant here in town. He installed a Southern Pride cooker. He was talking about possibly having wood shipped down from the states on pallets.

I knew alspice was a Jamacain wood but assumed it could be found on othe rislands. Great looking pit. I can see the wisdom in your purchase.

I realize that this is a very old thread. The link to the review no longer seems to work. Does anyone know if this review can be seen elsewhere? I'm very interested in a PCC trailerable pit and, despite the age of the review, would still like to see it. Thanks!
