What's an Oklahoma Joes Vertical Smoker Worth?
I'm going to look at this smoker in the morning. I'm curious what a smoker like this is worth? It has 4 17" X 17" racks.

I'd buy it

That is a Oklahoma Joe's Vertical Roasting Oven. Depends how bad you want it. I searched for one for over a year and finally found one in striking distance. I paid $350 for mine. However, the price I paid included delivery 180 miles round trip. There are not many around. I would start at approx $200 depending on the condition. It is a well built smoker with a difuser box. Built much better than the New Braunfels Bandera. I have used mine twice and have been pleased. Below is a picture.

Well, I bought it for $200. Look forward to seeing how well it holds temps and the temp distribution through the smoker box.

Don't see many of them around here.

Harris92, what do you mean by a "diffuser box"?

harris92 03-02-2013 01:29 PM

Mine has removable a difuser box at the bottom. Distributes the heat more evenly. The holes get progressively bigger the further away from the fire box.

U wont be disappointed. U got a good deal for a great smoker. I would have easily paid 300 -400 for an original ok joe just for the legacy.

Check out the bandera 101 doc for some ideas but u wont need alot of the mods in the ok joe. Its better built than the bandera. Keep us posted.

Thanks for posting that picture. Mine doesn't have the diffuser box. Maybe I can make one similar to this based on that picture. It appears it has a 1" or so clearance around the perimeter of the box best I can tell from this picture. Does that sound right?

Edit: Now I'm wondering if I could contact Horizon and buy a diffuser box from them?

Wampus 03-02-2013 01:43 PM

I have that exact same thing. Paid $225 for mine, used, but in new condition.
That diffuser box is a great thing. I still don't use the bottom rack much though as it runs about 100 degrees hotter that close to the FB. Congrats on the new addition to the family!

If you want to send me your email via private message I will be happy to take several close up pictures for you. It wont be until tomorrow morning as I am smoking in it right now.

Will send the pics and measurements in the morning (once the smoker cools off).
