Not sure what you're specifically referring to however they have made great products in the past. If you can find a good used one you won't be sorry.

Just my 1/50th of a buck....

What I've seen on other sites is some really bad business practices - some folks are either out money or having to go to great lengths to get deposits back. There's been a partner split so do your research before committing to any pit manufacturer regardless.

Are they taking the money and not delivering the pits? Bates did that some years ago and it sunk him and his business reputation, even though his pits were great..

Edit: Tried to look him up and it looks like he killed his Facebook page. That doesn't look good..

Small claims court maybe? If you have a receipt and the cashed check, it should be a slam dunk..

If anyone has ordered a smoker from Billy Overton at R&O smokers and he took your money please contact the Hood County Sherrif's office. He has ripped off several people and we are trying to build a case against him. I am not with the Sheriffs office just one of the unlucky people to be ripped off by this guy.
