I have had a recent request to borrow my smoker. I just can't do it! Maybe if it was a best friend or something? Do you have conditions on loaning out your smoker? Or are you like me. Just say no!

I loaned mine to a guy who was doing a charity cook. He got his trailer smoker stolen from a job site the night before the cook. But that's been the only time I've loaned it out.

So far I've only had one request, and I was there to babysit the whole time. It was also next door, so it didn't have to travel far. Very Happy

I have a Char-Broil Silver with some mods. Who'd want to borrow that? Now I have seen a Lang in town I'd like to play with. I wonder if I could borrow it?

I get calls every week in the summer asking if we rent our cookers out. very few had any problems with my explanation of why we do not do that, and ended up catering their party instead.

And we also won a rib competition (Un-Sanctioned) this summer by pairing up with the person that called us asking if we rent out equipment.

here is why I will not rent or lend our cooker (s),

If it gets damaged or stolen, how am I supposed to get a replacement in short notice to cover that 450 person wedding I am booked for in 3 days?
Who is providing the rest of the food, condiments, and utensils?

These calls are usually by someone looking for the cheapest way to throw a party and they seem to forget about the minor stuff, like plates, serving, side items amd clean-up.

nope! now f-ing way! if you want some bbq, i will go to the store with you and make sure you buy the right stuff. then we will swing by the beer aisle for my payment. then we will figure out what time you want to come over for dinner. then i cook it and you can have the leftovers.

O.K. cool, I don't feel so bad now! So, if I got this straight;

If you wanna borrow my cooker, I come with it (if I like you Razz ), I do the cooking, and there is a fee Exclamation

I like it!

I didn't think about the rent thing. I see that question coming too.

Thanks Guys!

Can I barge in with a question of my own? Would any of you, not necessarily borrow, but use someone else's cooker(s)?

Personally, I wouldn't let someone borrow my smoker, but all I got is a $50 fake ECB, so nobody would want to.

i used a guys cooker this summer that he bought specifically for a motorcycle function. i asked him if he minded, he replied that this was his first cooker of any kind. it was a large offset. he let me use it and break it in. then asked my opinion of it. he was really cool about me using it. i also ended up cooking the 50 brats, 50 burgers, 50 ears of corn and the 3 racks of ribs that i bought on it.


i am the guy in the white t-shirt. this is on a friends property back in a oak grove where the fire pit is.
