post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
hello from lincoln nebraska. my name is ryan eusterwiemann and i joined the forum about a week ago, this is my first post. have been grilling,smoking, making sausage for a while. i have el cheapo brinkmann, and converted commercial refer with heat element for extra heat if needed. i can use bradley smoke generator, or convert to wood smoker. usually smoke about once a week, or as time allows.
also have lem sausage grinder, and stuffer, have sunday, monday off so i had smoker going strong with whole 10-12# turkey, 4 rack spare ribs. my next project will be a breakfast fatty, after seeing the past about them on this site. they look delicious.
i have had my eye on oklahoma joe longhorn smoker for a while now, was wondering if anyone has any opinion or has used this smoker. local hardware store has it for $299.

I've got a Longhorn

"Hey Now" from another Nebraskan! Lived in Omaha my whole life (so far) until recently moving South of Plattsmouth. I have an Oklahoma Joe Longhorn and I love it! I've had it for around two years now. I bought mine "pre-smoked" from a guy in KC who had done some real nice mods. The smokestack was cut out with a plasma torch and lowederd down to grate level and of course made much taller make up for the difference. Then a baffle ot type of tunning plate was installed to move the heat towards the other end from the firebox. It's made of nice thick steel too so once you get it good and hot, it can hold a steady smoking temp even after the coals have just about burned out. For the price I would definitly recomend it to someone else. I tend to compare it to the Brinkman Cimmaron but larger and less expensive.
Happy smokes!
