Bar B Chef Offset - Install and Finished Pics

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by duckdawg, May 17, 2008.

  1. Hey all,

    Just got my Bar B Chef offset smoker in today, and put her together. When I was looking for a new smoker, I couldn't really find that many reviews or pics of the Bar B Chef, so I thought I would add these for anyone interested in puchasing one. Maybe you'll see something you do, or don't like. This is not a review, as I have not smoked on it yet, just pics for your viewing pleasure. I will be seasoning it tomorrow.

    The instructions said you need a hammer (?), pliers, phillps head, and a crescent wrench. I never used the hammer, but oh well. Anyway, here's what came in the boxes.

    I installed it by myself. It would have been easier with 2 people, but not impossible with one. Here's the finished product

    Smoke stack

    Fire box


    Can't wait to see how she smokes. One thing... They were out of stock on the thermometer, so if anyone knows where I could get a thermometer to fit the hole on the front, I'd appreciate it. I've got some digi's I'm going to use in the meantime, I'd just like somehing better looking than the Hope you enjoy the pics.

  4. Great looking Smoker dude. It looks alot sturdier than my Silver Smoker. I like that it already has some mods. I also like the piece of angle outside the fire box so you can cook some beans in a pot as well. Awsome.[​IMG]

    Great looking smoker. Looks like it was built by someone that has really used one. Like all the mods that is incorporated in it.

    Very nice lookin smoker, alot nicer than the silver or the brinkmans, I have heard some good things about the Bar B chefs. Still gonna need a baffle and tuning plates. Don't for get to season it, and bring it to temp nice and slow like the directions tell you, or the paint won't last as long. I made that mistake on my Charbroil when I first got it!

    Good for you, looks like your in business now![​IMG]
