Help me select my first smoker - Page 2

I agree with Chis, start small see what you want and like in a smoker then move up to it.

Like most here I too went through a few smokers before I bought my Horizon. It's my opinion that one should buy the best they can comfortably afford. Nothing worst than buying a pit that gives ya fits trying to learn. I'd bet that discourages more folks than we know.

Plus buying "Made In The U.S.A" still stands for something in my book.

Ok Joe

I have the OK Joe LongHorn and I love it. It's heavy duty and once you get that baby heated up it will hold temp like a dream. I use mine A LOT and would recommend it highly.

One of the older ones? The older ones were made of 1/4" steel.

Progress thus far

Thank you all for your advise and suggestions. I am going to look further at some of the heavy duty (1/4 inch) smokers.

It seems like Lang is the Rolls Royce of smokers, it is out of my price range. However, I will look at Horizon next weekend at Bass Pro Shop in Cincinnati. I will probably call Bell Fab too.

I want a good smoker that will last. My daughter and son-in-law (the smoker in the family) will inherit it sooner or later. If I don't like smoking, then he will get it sooner, with the stipulation that I get plenty of Q.

Thanks again,
Walt

Another option

We're building as good a smoker as the big names for less money. 1/4" plate, lifetime guarantee, accessories included that others are charging for. Thanks for looking.
