    Hey everyone! While I am new to the forums, I've been smoking meats for a little while on my weber kettle grill. Yesterday, however, I bought from Craigslist a "Big Boy" by Kelley charcoal water smoker for around 20 bucks. My issue is I can't find ANY info on it except for a couple of newspaper clippings on Google. Does anyone know about these things? Any help is appreciated.

    Hey VWbuggin, great find you got there. I have heard of the Big Boy company, and have a few of their grills from the 50's and 60's. But have not seen their water smoker before. I think Kelly bought Big Boy in the 70's so your smoker might date to then. Were you able to find anymore info on it?
