Default Jambo Backyard = Jambo Jr??

I'm about to pull the trigger on a Jambo Backyard, but Jamie said it will take a couple months to make it. I see on Big Poppa Smokers' website that they have the Jambo Jr. in stock. Is this the same exact smoker as the Backyard? Sure looks like it.

Thanks!

I bought a used Jambo backyard from a Bretheren last year about this time.....it was a year old and maybe a tad to0 expensive but I wanted to cook on a gen U Swine offset before I get too old. I CAN NOT tell you the immense pleasure of cooking on it. Now in no way can I compare to most of the talented Bretheren on here.....but it has produced smoked eats better than I ever thought "I" could. Used or New......if offset stick burning is your Muse.....you will LOVE IT!!

Is the backyard made with all of the same materials as the more expensive trailer options? I'm thinking of starting to save for a new smoker, and I've been looking at the Jambos. I don't have a need (nor space) for the large trailer ones, but I am hoping that the backyard is the same quality materials as the larger ones... just smaller.

You can get the JR on a trailer also they are the same pit as the backyard model. And they are sweet big enough to cook all your comp meats on.

As a former albeit brief owner of a Jambo Backyard/Junior, you would be hard pressed to find a higher quality offset out there. They are that nice. The backyard/junior is actually a really good deal when compared to other quality 24"x48" offsets as well.
