New Braunfels Vertical Smoker

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Anyone ever use one of these . . .

. . . and what can you tell me about this unit?

There's one on CL near me for $300. Is it worth that (if in reasonable condition)?

I don't know anything about it.

 It's a New Braunfels Bandera...they run about $600 new. I have a an earlier version of one and like it well. NB was purchased some time back and they are a bit thinner now and you will want to gasket the doors for better temp control. If it's in good shape, an offer of $250 would seem like a decent enough deal.

I realize I'm a bit late on this thread, but I came across it while searching for other Bandera owners.  In the event that anyone else sees it, I figured I'd throw in my two cents.


I bought one recently and have been restoring/modifying it.  I see them pop up on Craigslist from time to time but usually well less than $300.  I lucked out and got mine for $75, but have seen one for $200 and one for $120.  Given the following that they have, I have to believe it will do a good job when mine is ready, but I don't have any cooking experience on it yet.


Here is my intro thread with some of the details:
