  1. hello everyone: just bought a used "new braunfels" offset smoker at a yard-sale.($5.00) it`s kind of small,the firebox is 12 in. and the cooking/smoking section is 24-1/2 in. have experience in gas and electric smoking,but not in offset smoking. i`am a native hoosier,and a big colt`s fan.looking forward to try my hand at offset smoking. thank you

    Stick Burners (off set smokers) will teach you patients and good fire control, two of the most essential thing you need to know to be a successfull smoker. Be sure to check out Jeff's 5 day e-course, it has great info for beginners as well as hold hands.
