Default Smoker Joe Score Times Three!

I have been wanting to make a Smoker Joe for a while now but it has been tough finding a pot that would fit. A few weeks ago, a local place had Smokey Joe grills on sale for $22.95 so I picked one up.

A few days ago, I found a Walmart about 45 miles away that had some made in China tamale pots in stock. I took the drive after work and they had three of them. I figured since they are so hard to find I'd just buy all three.





Fits like a glove!



So, I will be making a Smoker Joe in the next few days. I can't wait to try it out.

She did have a sarcastic comment when she saw it so, I may have to hide it before it's all said and done.

But, it feeds my addiction and I needed a fix.

there are other brands that work. you just have to measure them. the pot i use is a differant brand. the other two pots i got were imusa that i got from wal mart for $10 ea. one of them along with a $10 sj is gone to my older son who made one and has gone nuts smoking things. you should be able to find them in any hispanic store.

It's the only one I know of. It has to be a 32qt IMUSA tamale/seafood steaming pot made in China. Some of them are made in Columbia and don't fit. I have seen one made using a can vacuum cleaner body but I don't know what make/model vacuum it was.

OK Dumb question. Assuming you cut out the bottom, How did you do it?

I haven't cut it yet but when I do I will drill a hole and use a jig saw.

Congrats on the score Boshizzle and I appreciate the info on the tamale pot to get. I am hitting up my local walmart tomorrow or friday to hopefully get one for myself.

I used a reciprocating saw. The aluminum is so thin, the saw went through it like paper.

Just checked our Walley Worlds and they are out of stock or they are not available at our local stores. I just acquired a brand new Smoley Joe and I have been wanting to make one of these. Don't have a Save A Lot around here but I have been looking for an excuse to go to Slidell and N.O. so now I have a reason.

Just thinking that if your local Wally World is out, check on line at walmart.com. They will ship to your local store at no cost. I ordered my cast iron dutch oven that way and let them pay freight. Just a thought.

There are others that fit:




Found it on Amazon. It's got silicone handles, no need or gloves to lift the cooking section when it's time to add fuel.
