00:23

Y’all supposed to have

00:24

some of the top notch grills around,

00:26

or something’ like that.

00:26

Yes, we do, yes we do.

00:27

Yeah, tell me about the Gator Pit.

00:29

Gator Pit is a custom pit shop.

00:32

Custom pit shop?

00:32

Custom pit.

00:33

Just like a custom car shop, except we trick out pits.

00:36

Like, like, not, not, like in–

00:38

Not NASCAR, but this kind of way, you know flip ’em.

00:41

Exactly, exactly. Yeah!

00:42

Smokers, grills.

00:43

And what you do to ’em?

00:44

We take ’em from raw steel,

00:47

Yeah.

00:47

And we actually turn them into this finished product.

00:49

Raw steel?

00:50

Raw steel.

00:51

None of this– Pipe,

00:53

All custom.

00:54

Plate.

00:54

Angle.

00:55

[Ritch] Lot of–

00:57

Raw steel.

01:00

So, so, each one is a one of one?

01:02

This is the only one you’ll ever see like this.

01:04

Yeah, so when you out tailgating,

01:06

you gotta worry about somebody having the same grill

01:08

and the same make-

01:09

Nobody. The same makeup as you.

01:10

How long does it take to make one?

01:12

This one was two months.

01:13

Four to five welders on it at one time.

01:15

You need welders. Welders.

01:16

You got to put this together.

01:17

Because you got 2,888 feet of welds on it.

01:20

That’s a lot m-, that’s a lot of metal.

01:23

[hardcore Metal]

01:25

Everything’s custom-made by hand, from the

01:27

stainless to the pipe to the plate you see right here.

01:30

We custom paint everything.

01:31

Paint job on this was right at six grand.

01:34

Really?

01:35

Yeah.

01:35

[laughter]

01:37

This is- , and you got a big heavy thing man.

01:39

They’re heavy.

01:40

Oooo look at that bird!

01:41

Some good-looking yard bird there.

01:43

[2 Chainz] Good old, good old bird in there.

01:45

[chicken clucks]

01:46

So what made you start doing this customization and stuff?

01:48

When I was in high school I started welding in FFA

01:50

and I was building barbecue pits for the high school.

01:53

A little side hustle, right?

01:54

A lit, a little.

01:55

And then it just went from there, and I just

01:56

turned it into a hobby and into my job,

01:59

what I do, it’s what I’ve been doing.

02:01

Been talking about it every day man.

02:02

All you gotta do is find something

02:03

that you’re good at, find something that you like doing,

02:06

find a passion that you can capitalize off of.

02:08

So where’s Gator Pit name come from?

02:10

02:34

just for fun and play with ’em.

02:35

Oh yeah.

02:38

And then we’d eat ’em.

Y’all, y’all knew I like this type of stuff

04:02

Yeah, we asked what you want, what you want to eat.

04:05

[Ritch] Yeah, yeah, we cooked it for you man.

04:07

[2 Chainz] You guys know how to grill too now, you can’t

04:09

just be making these when you don’t know how to grill.

04:11

We teach cooking classes.

04:13

That’s an excellent idea.

04:14

Yeah.

04:15

I got a website.

04:16

GATORPITBBQSCHOOL.COM

04:17

So you teach ’em how to grill?

04:19

And they come, it’s a one-day class.

04:20

So how much for the class?

04:21

How much would that cost?

04:22

It’s 500 a hit.

04:24

500 a hit. For one day?

04:25

For one day.

04:26

And we’ll have 20 or 30 students a day.

04:28

What’s the lifetime-

04:29

20 or 30 students a day?

04:31

Yeah, times 500.

04:32

[mumbles] Maaan..

04:33

[laughter]

04:35

So look, I think that’s a great idea,

04:36

so not only do you get a 30,000 dollar grill,

04:39

you can go get class for 500.

04:40
