Late April fools joke?

I thought I'd seen it all, but this just proves I haven't. If it's true, the Lotta Bull BBQ flagship pit, built by Jamie Geer for Johnny Trigg many years back, is up for sale on eBay. I don't really know what to think of it and a few things just don't jive, so I'm left virtually speechless about this development. Publicity stunt? Cash flow issue? The owner stood in the wind a little too long last weekend? We may never know. Here's one thing I do know, based on the original purchase price of that pit, I should pull my retirement investments and go long in Jambo's. One thing is for sure, the new owner of this pit will definitely own a piece of competition barbecue history.

Good luck to everyone bidding on this pit or competing this weekend. Looks like Mother Nature intends to challenge us again.

That pit is in amazing condition for 14 years old... For 20k though I'd probably have Jamie build me a brand new one

wow. I did see him cooking on an ole hickory in Texas. Could he have made the switch?

or maybe he figured out how to run one of these:
