  1. I just ordered my Longhorn. This will be my first offset smoker. I went ahead and ordered the tuning plates all the gaskets and latches for the smoke chamber. Is the any thing i should know about the long hor other then the mods that i have read about? Thank you in advance

    Congrats on the new smoker.

    I'm not familiar with it so I can't suggest any other mods.

    However I am looking forward  to seeing it in action.

    How long do you have to wait?

  3. The smoker will be in on June 15. The parts for the mods I'm not sure. I cant wait to get it all together and get smoke rolling. I will definitely post pics of it start to finish and of the first smoke.

    I have a Longhorn and like it. I put in a pair of Tel Tru thermo's in the bungs.  I have a heat management plate in mine. I like it. I added a baffle to block the rest of the opening from the firebox to the main chamber. If you use the calculator on this site the opening is a bit big so my baffle puts it more in line with the size the formula gives you. My baffle directs the heat under the management plate instead of a straight shot into the main chamber. I sealed between the halves of the fire box. I don't leak between the fire box and main body so I didn't mess with that. Some door sealing my be in order eventually. I don't see the need for an exhaust elbow so I didn't put it in mine. Why trap smoke in the upper part of the smoker above the elbow entrance. IMO. I get good results with my smoker and like it for now. Is it as good as one 4-5 times the price? I've never used another so I can't say. But for the price I like it! Enjoy!
