I've been looking for a wood smoker, and found this one at a garage sale this morning. It's an Oklahoma Joe's horizontal smoker, with a side fire box. Most of new units I see like this these days are made of paper thin iron, and around $180 to $300. This thing is all welded, no bolt-on fire box, the legs are clamped onto tubes, that are welded to the smoke chamber, with set-screws, and it is made of iron that measures thicker than 3/16", but is thinner than 1/4". It is very heavy, and in pretty good shape. I don't think it's been used much. I asked how much they wanted, and I was very surprised when the lady said " how about $40?" I offered $30 cash, and took it home! The cooking surface measures 15" x 30". The serial # is 74226. Anyway, does anyone know much about this thing, like how old it might be, or what it may have cost new? I'll try to post some pics of it soon, if that will help. This will be my first stick-burner, so does anyone have any tips to make this model work well? Is is a good model? Any info. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time!
