I found this on CL, the seller wanted $225 for it. When I offered $100, he dropped the asking price to $200. What would be a reasonable good price for this New Braunfels smoker as shown in this picture.

What is the model, anyway?

That looks like the one i used to have .Older heavy guage metal.

I see that he has added the grate level thermos . If it has all the mods done to it and has no damage and very little to no rust, It is worth close to 2 bills.

 Check the legs REAL good as they were a source of aggrivation. they weren't strong enough IMO.

  Also check around both doors for warped areas.

 The warped doors is a fairly easy fix .

Just like a used car ,The more dents and dings you can find the more ammo you have to haggle on the price.

I sold mine this spring for $50...but it was also around 6 years old, a little rust and needed new charcoal racks and didnt have the 2 extra thermometers on it like this one.  Other than that, it looks like the same model...I think a newer one with the therm would probably be in the range of 100 to 150....

I wouldn't pay much over $100.  Keep a Craigslist vigil and you'll find a better deal soon if he won't come down on his price.

I got a similar one by Char-Broil for under a hundred I think, brand new , still in the box.

It worth what ever you want to spend, but I'm a thrifty person (aka Cheap) and I'd keep looking

Sold my moded Char-griller smokin' pro for $80, was only 8 months old, and had cost $170 new w/ another $30 in mod materials.

For $200 I would just save up another $70, and get a 18.5" WSM.

Not saying it's worth 2 bills But if this an older model NB .It is worth ALOT more than a smoke n pit. The older ones were heavy steel and would put out some great smokes w/ minimal mods. The doors were heavy enough not to warp and the boxes were thick enough to hold the heat.

 Right now i can go to acadamey and see the newer NB and the oklahoma joe pits side by side The nb pits are cheaply made and the metal is thin . The okie joes are the same as the NB pits used to be. The cost reflects the difference.
