Default Are Oklahoma Joe's any good? Is this worth it?

Craigslist: Oklahoma Joe Smoker http://omaha.craigslist.org/for/3557061341.html

Not familiar with this brand. From what I've read they're supposed to be pretty good. Tired of waiting for a cheap weber to come up. Plus I think I'd be happier with an offset anyways. Do they need any mods? TIA!

I have a friend who has one, and it rusted through on him really quickly. I'd look at this, but with as rusty as it is already, be weary. Definitely worth looking at though. My friend bought a Lang after his Ok. Joe rusted through, and I think the Ok Joe did teach him how to regulate temps with an offset firebox. I may offer like $30-$50 for it, but wouldn't pay $100. You can get a REALLY nice Weber Kettle somewhere for that!

I think T-H (Ken) has one I think if it's not rusting out that it might be closely priced to a decent deal if it's an Oklahoma Joe, which I think are made of a heavier gauge steel than most cheaper ones?

Ryan, here's one listed on CL by me for comparison

That's what I thought, that they were made heavier than the box store ones.

Hopefully its just surface rust. I can fix that. Got q text into the war department so we'll she what she says first.

The Oklahoma Joe smoker is the older brother, so to speak, of the Horizon Smoker which I own. Mine is made from 1/4" thick pipe & the Ok Joe looks to be the same. For a hundred bucks I would jump on it.

Offer em 50 and if he balks , be ready to go up to 75....I bet he'll pop.
From what you can see of the inside it looks solid enough. I bet that's a good cooker.

I see the newer ones might be made in China. So I'm trying to figure out if that's the case. I think so. Not a big deal.

The wife wants to know why I need another smoker. My reply why do you need 30 pairs of shoes? Cause they all have a use

Okie Joe's are great... I have the Longhorn 20".. The one you are looking at is the 16" version.. For 100 bones you cannot go wrong...

There are a few mods you can do to them to get even temps across the pit and a charcoal basket for longer burn times of your fuel...


Here's my baby chugging along with a pot of Red Beans cooking on the side..




Here is the smoker vent extension...




And the charcoal basket...

Finally received email back. He said its 12-15 years old. Everything is solid yet, but the firebox door doesn't shut cause of the rust. Think I can take care of that. Also said he has 3 other people interested, so hopefully he calls me
