I want to build a join (linked list) between two SharePoint Lists. However one list is on one site collection and the other list is on a different site collection, same FARM though.

Is this possible?   Thanks!

You are going to need a custom field to do this.  Or buy a third party app.  Or there may be some free downloads out there.

Do you have any suggestions on third party apps?

Or if you are using 2010, you could try to use the Managed MetaData service and/or published content types
