Gator Info.

I don't see any info on the Gator on the website. Anybody know how much it cost and how much it weighs? Anybody got any pictures?

Go up to the top of the page and click on "Search"

Type in Gator

Lots of information there and one of my posts does have several pictures of the Gator cooker.

Nice cooker...

I would guess the weight at about 310 pounds.

I am sure Mike would build you one if you ask.

Thanks Dave. I was planning on calling this morning. I've got an offset that I've cooked on for years, but it needs a lot of love (and coals) when I cook brisket or butt. The Party would probably do what I need, but I'm a firm believer in getting a little more than what you think you need. The Fatboy just seems to fit. Plus that's what my wife calls me, LOL. If I can get the Gator, then at least I'd have something a little different than everyone else.

We used to have a Gator, it's virtually the same size as the Fatboy. I'd guess the weight is very simliar too.

As far as being different then the Fatboy, it would take a trained eye to know which was which without opening it.

Thanks for the comments. Turns out the Gator has a removable water pan and expanded metal shelves. Costs a couple hundred more than plain Fatboy. I know this because I ordered one this morning. I just woke up from the sticker shock. Now I'm starting to get excited. What am I gonna do with myself for the next 8 weeks? LOL
