  1. Hey guys,

    Looking for a larger indirect smoker. I've seen a few on here. Looking to spend around $600 or so. I'm a pretty avid smoker/grilled. Been smoking for years on my Sam's Club smoker, it's been great, but is starting to rust out and looking for something a little more heavy duty. Can't seem to find anything on the commercial market. Everything seems to be a cheaper built smoker or in the thousand plus dollar range. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance gentlemen.


  2. [​IMG]   Good evening and welcome to the forum, from another sunny and hot day in East Texas and the best site on the web. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything.

  3. Thanks for the welcome Gary. Yup, another brutal day of heat in the great state of Texas.
  4. Gary, I got a question for you? You wrote on your profile you like to build pits? I am looking to either purchase or built/have a new indirect pit built. You have any insight into where to go to purchase? I don't really want to spend more than 600-700 to get one. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome aboard SMF!  You will find this site full of great information.

    I saw your question to Gary about off set/in direct pits.  I was in the same spot you are a few years ago.  My highly modified el cheapo was finally headed to the scrap yard.  I finally settled on the Old Country Wrangler.  They sell it here in Texas at Academy Sporting Goods.  While it is not perfect, after a couple simple modifications I really like the smoker.  I will admit, that I plan to upgrade again at some point.  I am saving and plan to get a Lang 60, but that will not be for at least another 5 years.  I figure at that point I will have 8 years on my Old Country and it will be ready for another home.  

    I looked at building my own pit, based upon the amount of time I have, it was not right for me.  However I have about 4 - 5 hours into modifying my Old Country. 

    Good Luck and Smoke ON!
  6. I PMed you
