  1. Was reading about newer OklaJoe smokers available. I saw one at Lowe's for around $500.

    I bought mine 20 years ago, paid $750 for it(16" 40" cook area) and have never had one regret. Every year for over 10 years

    I cooked 33 baby backs for our 4th party, and have done countless butts through the years as

    well. Only issues I've had, 1- never been able to find the perfect cover, 2- my Mason Jar grease cap rusted off.
     
  2. They make a nice pit.

  3. arent they just char-broil grills now?
     
  4. More-less, just shaped like the originals Much lighter metal. One way to spot old vs new from a great distance is

    the newer, thinner model's door closes flush to unit, whereas the originals door overlaps. Glad I got mine when I did.

    (according to front plate, mine was made in 1987.)
