first real smoke with the new OK Joe
4 Attachment(s)
Since a few of you guys were nice enough to give me a few pointers on my new offset, I thought I would let you know how it went yesterday.

It was just the wife and me so all I did was one slab of baby backs. The reason its cut in half is becuase when I bought it, it was 3 in a pack. And at the time I had a small vertical wattburner and I have to cut them to fit, so I cut and froze them

Anyway, I thought it went real well. It was about 25f out when I started and then it started snowing. I was able to keep my target temp of 250f without any trouble at all. I did not have a lot of splits available to I used a combo of lump and splits for the cook.

Did not take long to figure out that about every 45 mins a small split and a handful of lump would keep the cooker happy.

Here are a few pics. Thanks everyone for your help getting me off on the right foot!

Nice looking feed,Love the baffle idea.

ButtBurner 02-17-2013 03:56 PM

thanks thanks thanks

on the baffle, if you are talking about the foil, what that is, is 2 foil cookie sheets covered with more foil.

I put those there to keep drippings off my tuning plates. I have 1/4" thick tuning plates that run most of the length of the pit that I can adjust the spacing on

BattBurner, what did you use to adhere the oven gasket to the smoker door? I have done that mod to my OJ using high temp fireplace caulk but it keeps coming off after a smoke or two.

Good looking ribs. I've done many briskets, butts, and ribs on my OK Joe over the years - it is an excellent relatively inexpensive stick burner. Sounds like your fuel use is about what I use, and it sounds like you've already got the temperature maintenance down! Took me a number of smokes to learn that on mine . . . .

Good job man, you're on your way.
