New Braunfels smoker question

Discussion in 'Classified Ads' started by silverhawx, Apr 28, 2010.

  1. I found one for sale for $75 OBO. Is this a good deal?[​IMG]
     
  2. There are a bunch of different models that have been manufactured under the New Braunsfels name. Do you have any idea which one it is? It also matters if it's old or new. The older ones were made out of much heavier steel.
     
  3. He said I could have it for $60.

    BUY IT NOW! i would if i was closer.
     
  5. I agree. If the wole bottom isn't rusted out, it's a steal for 60 bucks! Go get that dude and give it some TLC. You will have yourself a fine smoker.
     
  6. Just talked to the guy. I pick it up Sunday.
    I might have it blasted and repaint. If I do I will post pics.

    Yes it is worth the money,,,,give it some love and you can burn a lot of lump or char...or wood chuncks ,,,splints...All I see is replace some boards... and knock off some rust and re paint,,,easy fix...use it for a few years and repaint it and double your money...the american way.

    i would skip the repainting. knock off the rust with a wire brush, then get her hot (275 or more) and rub her down with vegetable oil. i did that to mine after several repaints and i feel like the oil is a better way to go.

    Yes,sir. That's a good smoker and even if rusted through,a piece of formed metal in the bottom will extend that one's life some more!!![​IMG]
    Good find and,
     
  11. Well I just picked up my New Old Smoker. I was told it is the Silver Model with the Gas Starter for the Firebox. It is in great condition not at all rusted thru. Some new wood and Handles and she will be fun to work with. It has the smoke stack Mod and the Heat distrabution Mod. Made out of real metal. If anyone has one feel free to contact me with your advise on operating and modifying it.[​IMG] I wil post pick when I learn how.
