going to check it out on sunday.........some dude is selling it for a chick who has a sob story (if true then it is sad) so i don't know how much she is willing to budge since there is some sentimental attachement....late husband.
well, i went and picked it up for $125 and this thing is heavy as hell! i need to clean it up, put some fresh paint on it and fire this thing up! now i need to go look into the charcoal/wood forums to learn a new style of smoke. thx for the info guys.........i actualy took a little from travcoman and dr. freak and walked away with a smile!
i will........they bought it in '04 and have the original receipt. there was no major rust...just the minor surface that i can take care of. not sure i want to steam clean it cuz that would mean i would have to find someone to help me lift that bastige back in the truck! i was thinking 'bout firing it up and scraping it when warm.
just looking through the paperwork and this is NOT an OK Joe/NB smoker. it is a BAR-B-CHEF smoker from BBQ galor................seems well made with all the features. found some good reviews...anyone know anything? did OK JOE /NB make smokers for BBQgalor in '03 or '04? i'll post pics of details on the unit to help identify tomorrow.
Well in any case looks like you got a nice smoker. A little TLC and elbow grease and it should be in good shape. Good luck on the clean up, I would think a good firing on the inside of the big box would clean and residual grease etc... from in there then you can scrape it out. The firebox shouldn't really require a lot of cleaning.
Looks like a duplicate of my Brinkmann Smoke 'n' Pit professional. Yours likely heavier. I took my firebox off and sanded/wirebrushed it, painted it with Krylon hi-temp. Obviously you're in the Phoenix area. I've done a mod or 2 to mine, I can point you to some great mod tips and reams of local smokers. Berry Brothers Firewood @ 53th St. & Washington, south side of road or Glowing Embers near 19th & Cheryl on east side. I'll send a PM.
D'OH-I'm near Bell and I-17. Are you off in Chandler/Gilbert like nearly everybody else I've run into lately?
