    Default What can you tell me about this smoker?

    A co-worker offered this smoker to me for $100. It appears to be a heavy build unit from South West Smokers out of Tulsa, which I don't believe is in business anymore. What do you guys think?

    Don't know much about that....other than it sounds like a steal! I'd offer him $75 for it and work your way up. Looks like a great smoker/oven/grill.

    I know nothing about it either, but if you don't buy it, I will.

    Unless his wife changes his mind for him somehow.... I'm definitely buying buying it! I'm not even going to try to get a better price out of him. He already gave me an old Ariens zero turn mower that ended up only needing a $10 part to fix.

    Sell the hay burner and buy the stick burner.

    Looks like a nice HD grill for small smokes. I'd buy it for a Franklin.

    I need the hay burner to keep my yard in check. Well at least it's faster at doing it than my old mower.

    Southwest Smokers had a great reputation for building heavy weight, designed to last smokers. they built both small backyard units as well as trailer units, and everything in between.

    If you are in the market for a unit of that size, you would be a fool not to snatch it up before his wife has a chance to put the kibosh on the deal.

    One thing that looks odd to me with this unit is the outlet pipe is coming from the bottom of instead of the top. How do you all suppose this cooker was intended to be operated?
