View Full Version : New guy from Tennessee

Hello everyone,

I've a renewed interest in my smoker and had been searching for an active forum to discuss and learn. Found it here.....

I have an older OK Joe Longhorn. The serial number plate doesn't indicate NB, but it has the ash pan (or did) and is about 3/16 thick so not sure which version it really is.

Anyway, I've had is quite a while and it used to always cook too hot. Now, the ash pan rotted away so I replaced it with a sheet of 16g bent to the radius and tacked into the bottom of the firebox. Made a heat deflector, that I think is deflecting too much now and and basket (I used the 1/2 in and it is too restrictive so picked up some 3/4)
