Thinking of picking this up for 2K. Does this look like a good deal?

If that's a deluxe pipe smoker then it retails for close to 5K. So on paper it sounds like a great deal depending on shape. I haven't heard anything about Klose smokers either way as far as quality and smoking, but retail price wise it sounds like a bargain.

I agree with Chris, sounds like a decent price.
Can't tell from pictures, but I think my only concern would be if the firebox was rusted out anywhere.
 
First cook!!! Excited! Would y’all have the coals on that bottom grate or on the actual bottom
Of the firebox?

Just biscuits and four chicken thighs for tonight😂. I’m heading up to Fort Collins on Saturday to grab a truck full of seasoned oak and I’ll knock out some ribs this weekend! This thing is not easy to get up to temp

But once it is there it will hold well with that steel. Make adjustments on temp IE airflow and wood carefully until you get used to it. Easy to overshoot
 
This thing is not easy to get up to temp
Start by putting lit charcoal (half a chimney) in, Then put 4 or 5 splits on (crosshatched)... Leave door open untill they flame up good... Close door and open vents wide open... Let this burn down to coals... You will be way over temp at this point... Spray inside of CC with a light spray from your hose (Be careful, it will steam and could burn you) and close lid (quickly) ... This in turn does two things... Lowers temps and steam cleans the interior of the CC... Now throw a split on and adjust vents and your ready to go...
