Hello all,

Name’s Grimm and I’m new to smf. I just purchased an Oklahoma Joes highlander and am looking forward to my adventures to become a pit master. I know it’s not an easy journey and there will be bumps along the way, but I know that if I can learn from the masters here and get better along the way it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun.

Welcome to the best place to learn about smoking. I started on that offset and cooked a lot of what I think was good BBQ on it. If you got the forward flow, I'd recommend the baffle plate, door gaskets, and cook chamber door latches to help with keeping the smoke/heat in as well as smoke/heat distribution. I also got the water pan, but almost never used it after I read some about the pros and cons of using water in the cook chamber. Here's a good video that will help you with fire management on that smoker.
