Southwest Smoker Outdoor Oven

Any brethren own one of these fine smokers? I picked one up on CL last week for $120 and it is well worth every penny and then some. The seller allowed his wife to convince him to go vegan and was easily talked down from the $150 asking price.

Now, before you dismiss it as a Bandera, its built with 1/8" steel (save for the 1/4" air control on the firebox), all welded (not held together with bolts) and will probably outlast most of the folks here!

I smoked a 10 lb brisket flat and a 6.5 lb shoulder last weekend and they were both amazing! Seeing the slabs in the cabinet help to get an idea of the actual size...

Finally, the pr0n. Best brisket I've ever made

Think I'll slap on a fresh coat of paint this weekend. :)

this guy paid about that for one in far fairer condition.

Looks pretty rusty to me, but it is the same beast. Thanks!

Edit: the seller inherited it from his grandfather, sanded off all of the surface rust, applied a crappy coat of paint, replaced the thermometer and all grates. I'm happy with it. :)

It looks like you got a custom smoker- and it also looks like you just got a really good deal.

Nice one. The brisket too.

It looks pretty cool to me, I'd love to have one of those. Nice!

Mark M 08-09-2012 02:08 PM

That's nice. Are you sure it's only 1/8" thick? Looks more like 3/16". Either way, you got a deal. Enjoy.

kev2lz 08-10-2012 04:32 PM

Thanks, guys. I've never actually measured the metal, it could be 3/16".

Funny story... The day I brought this thing home, my neighbor offered me $300 for it. Today, after eating a whole mess of smoked boudin, corn and these bad boys (smoked, brisket and cream cheese stuffed jalapeños)

Attachment 69268

He offered me $500. Wanna guess my answer? ;)

I would like to get one of the someday. I see them on CL about 3-4 times a year. You could cook a lot of ribs on one of those.

That thing is awesome, I've been looking for one for a few years now. My question is, if these things are so sought after, why doesn't someone start making them again?

My brother received one of these as a present from his wife back in the mid 90's. It was purchased from a Sam's Club. Don't know what it cost but my brother is giving it to me so I am a happy man. It will be soon be in my lower garage along with my UDS, Primo, Lang60 and BWS Chubby.
