Gator Pit of Texas Custom BBQ Pits

2036 Pellet COOKER

Total Package Price:  $2,495.00



Gator Pit did not invent the wheel.  We just made a better wheel.  That is what our Pellet Cooker is today.  No other pellet cooker manufacturer offers this custom quality.  Gator Pit as raised the bar in the Pellet Grill industry with this Gator Pit.


The hopper assembly is 18" from the center of the burn pot to the mounting edge of hopper in order for the burnpot/firepot to be as close to the center of the smoke chamber as possible.

The PID Controller Operates where the fan motor and auger motor pulsate at different times. It will operate differently than other controller brands to maintain a stable temperature

The auger motor is designed to "float" inside of the hopper assembly.  It may appear loose, although that is the design.


Your Gator Pit Pellet Cooker is tested prior to our customers receiving the unit.  Pellet Pro tests each Hopper Assembly prior to sale.  Gator Pit tests each complete Gator Pit Pellet Cooker prior to leaving our facility.  We ensure all is in working order before our customers receive their GP Pellet Cooker.  Know that when you receive your GP2036PC, you can start cooking.
