Oklahoma Joe Mod + Fuel Source

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey all!


I am looking to purchase and mod (thanks to this awesome forum) my first offset smoker. I decided that the Oklahoma Joe Highland seems to fit what I want and is a solid choice based on what I read on this forum. I plan to do the general mods (heat plate, gaskets, lower stack, coal box, etc) but had a more general question about the offset fuel source and heat management. It appears a big population of offset users have wood as their source. of heat and indicate that large splits of wood are what are needed to keep temp in offsets. I generally use lump / general charcoal and have access to chunks of wood but where I am located in the US is not easy to get actual splits or logs of fruit wood. Does anyone use offsets without using these larger wood splits as a heat source? I do not want to have major temp issues due to the fact I am not able to use large splits of wood to get the temp cranking. I can get oak if that works.


any advice or guidance on this question? Thanks in advance!

Read the posts in "Going propane in my Oklahoma Joe". As fun as smoking with just wood is, the results have only been better using this $80 kit.
