Helotes Pits was founded in 1993 by Raul Morales, originally named Quality Pits & Smokers. It eventually grew to include small steel jobs, and the name was changed to Gavin Steel Fabricating, Inc. Through the years it expanded to become the full-service fabrication shop that it is today. With a renewed interest in outdoor grilling and smoking, Raul re-established Helotes Pits and the company was able to return to one of its roots.
Raul lives, works, and builds the pits in the Texas Hill Country, where some of the world’s best BBQ is made! He uses the pits to cook for family, friends, and employees so he understands the importance of a well-built pit. For him, the Pits are a labor of love and a source of pride. Each pit is built by skilled craftsmen in steel, each a unique expression of the metal-crafters art. The pits offer the build, performance, durability, and simplicity that cannot be found in the mass-produced products in the market today. Beginners to Pro’s can appreciate the consistent performance and delicious results that a Helotes Pit offers!
