If it's really old it may have wooden handles, smaller water pan, does not have a built in thermometer. Other than that, it's pretty much the same thing.

The older model lacks these features:
Built-in lid thermometer
Improved access door and water pan
Sturdier legs and heat shield under the charcoal bowl

Each of these things you could modify later yourself if you felt it necessary.

Just buy it.
There isn't anything on the new ones that make them cook better than the old ones.

If it's a model 1880, definitely buy it and don't look back.

Yeah dude, AWESOME deal. That model was my first ever smoker, and it got me hooked! I sold it to a good friend for 100 bucks before I bought the 22.5, which wound up burning so much extra charcoal that if I wasn't cooking a lot of meat I felt ashamed hehe. Nice score man.
