Just ordered my horizon Smoker

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Little background. Have been using a masterforge gas smoker for the last few years, but could never really get the smoke ring I wanted.  Meat always tasted decent, but I like the visual part of cooking also(smoke ring).  I have been going back and forth on getting the Okie Joes from lowes or the horizon 16".  I decided the horizon classic backyard smoker from BPS.  I had to choose the pick up at store option, because I couldn't justify the extra 250 shipping they were going to charge(wife and baby...long story).  So to make this short and sweet, how much of a pain is it going to be to unload this beast?  Also are there any significant mods I need to make in order to get the best out of this smoker?  Lastly cannot wait for it to get to store so I can start seasoning, then cooking.

That's a pretty nice smoker, I was looking at the Horizon units at BPS myself. It's going to be pretty heavy, so you will need a few friends to help you unload it. I don't really think you will need to make any modifications to it once you get it, just season it and then start cooking.

Smoker should be here tomorrow.  Will probably cook on it next weekend.

I have a Yoder Cheyenne, which is almost the same as the horizon 16" and it is heavy,340+lbs.  Had mine shipped and just getting it off the pallet by my self was a bit of a challenge. I recommend getting some beer and buddies to help if you are unloading it out of a pickup truck. (also some 2x6's).  But it will be well worth the trouble. If you did not get the Heat Plate, get one! Otherwise you will have a 100 deg difference from the fire box side to the other.
