    Hey, I just bought a Smo-Kit Smoker Model 1214, made by Smokin Tex for $5 at a garage sale. It is an all aluminum box with 2 racks, a chip box, and hooks to a camping propane bottle. It was used only 2 times by the owner and I swear it must have been to make coffee. Does anybody have one of these and what can you tell me about it. I bought it thinking it would make a great oven for camping till I got it home and looked at all the parts.

    SmokinTex Smo-Kit (1214) Propane Smoker

    This is not only a smoker, its also a camp stove! Works wonders on fish, chicken, pork, beef, fajitas and hot wings. Smokes with any flavor wood chips, tea, or rice and brown sugar mixture. Works great for your camp breakfast. The allaluminum body ensures extreme durability.

    Thanks Scarbelly for the contact information. They are sending me an email with the manual in a .pdf form. That smoker has been discontinued. It retails for $90 new and they have only 4 left on the back shelves if I wanted another one.
    So if anybody likes the have a 1 in 4 chance left of getting a new one.

    I am glad you were able to get the info. After you read the manual let us know and we can help you with some processes. My guess is that this is a "smoking light" unit that will give you some flavor but not a real smoke.
    I liken this unit to using a foil bag of chips in a BBQ to mimic a smoke.
    It seems like this was designed to be an oven that could impart some smoke in a product. None of this is a bad thing and for $5 you scored big
    I would highly recommend you call the SmokinTex folks and have them walk you thru some proceedures

    Let me know if you need some help/ Send me a PM and let me look at the manual and I can help. I have 50 years as a gourmet cook and cooking teacher.
    Welcome to the fold. We give big food hugs here
