    Wow! That's a serious looking rig. Very cool. You burn just wood in that or do you use charcoal too?
  7. Looks awsome
  8. Charcoal is what l been using but this burn was started with Kingsford blue then I kept feeding with oak coals from the fire pit... never smoked this long with this rig before
  9. Looking goos so far. Nice looking pit.

    Happy smoken.

  10. What brand is she?? Very nice looking!
  11. This is an Old Country smoker I got at Academy Sports this summer
  12. Its the Pecos model with a 60 inch cook chamber
  13. I have the exact Same smoker and have no problems doin 8-10hr cooks, just have plenty of wood.
  14. Wow...that's a serious smoker! Nice looking bbg as well. I built a UDS a couple years back and I'm looking for a new unit, was looking at the weber smoky mountain. Now I'm undecided again...thanks

    Hey HogHeadHale,

    I have a question, I've seen that thermometer on the right in Wamart and was wondering how good those it work for you?  By the way, that meat looks goooooood!

    If you can find one with acceptable fit and finish, Old Country's have to be one of the best bang for the buck offset smokers you can get from a big box store. Thicker steal, grate-level exhaust, slide out expanded steel cooking racks, built in baffle, warmer on top of firebox. Really a great rig for the money. Had it about 4 months and enjoying it a lot.
