WOW! You could cook for an army on that thing!

I know you have a Brinkmann trashcan smoker already, but thats one leap up in size.

Just the fuel to fire it would keep you busy choppin' wood

A Brinkmann or Char-Broil offset seems to me to be the logical next step up to hone your skills. Maybe even a small Klose or Gator.

I'd finish building it, do a couple of cooks and sell it. At least you might turn a profit.

Good luck!

I agree with YB. That's an awful lot of pit. If your planning on catering or cooking for very large crowds it tmight be just fine, but if you are planning on using it for smaller cooks then it seems to me to be overkill.
I would look at a Brnikmann , CharBroil or Chargriller offset.
