Ive got a co-worker thats been droolin over my BBQ for a long time, he has a wore out cheapie Horizontal I dont know what brand, At any rate he can never get decent results with the thing because the door wont seal, and the firebox is burned out, etc. So last night I was over at a friend's house and he was showing me some backyard stuff, and I noticed his smoker... It was a New Braunfels vertical. He said his wife was tired of looking at it and wanted it gone. So.... I hauled it off for him. Today at work I told my co-worker about it and he was getting all excited, so after work I dropped it off at his place, and he is chomping at the bit to get it going! The New Braunfels unit needs a little cleaning and the firebox is also rusty, but overall it is a much nicer unit. Freebies are cool!
