    Which model is he selling? Jeremy Yoder - Mad Scientist BBQ - speaks highly of them. The Brazos (I think) was his main pit for quite awhile.

      Which model is that? Looks like it could be a Brazos, but with the front shelf removed.

      I have had the Over and Under and Smokehouse models and liked both of those. They are pretty well built for the money, and they fill in the gap between COS and EOS smokers. I went with Old Country for those reasons, and the fact that I knew I would probably want to shake things up within a few years and move on to the next cooker. I can tell you they have a lifetime warranty and they stand behind it. I had a weld break loose on the firebox lid of the Over and Under once. I emailed the company, sent a couple of pictures they requested, and received a handwritten check in the mail from the owner to cover my cost to have a local welding shop fix it.

        If he’s close by, go check it out. It looks to be in pretty good shape. Looks like he just repainted it too. Based on the answers you’ve gotten above ☝️ $500. ain’t bad. And it’s a good size smoker too.

        Aaron Franklin had a YouTube series "BBQ With Franklin" where he cooked on a Pecos model. It's called The Smoker (see link below). They seem to get the job done, albeit with a little bit of a learning curve and some light mods. I've seen their models at Academy. Definitely a step up from the COS.

          If its the Pecos model - those are only $399 new at Academy:

          I think its this basic Brazos model, which is $999 new, but as others say - what did he do with the hinged front shelf?

            he said he bought it from academy and it had no branding. used it enough times to add the thermometers. not sure about the shelf. i'm in line behind a few other peeps who want it so will see if it's in the cards.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

        Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

        Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
        Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
