***PARALLEL IMPORT *****
REAL low & slow bbq aficionados - rejoice! This deal is for the genuine Oklahoma Joe's Highland Smoker.
Modelled after the good ol' smokers from pioneering days in the oil fields, this big bad smoking beast is the real deal y'all!! Mix it up with some old fashioned Kiwi kai and do we have a feast on our hands or what?!!
This style of smoker was first built by hungry oilfield workers in Texas and Oklahoma from surplus oil pipes and 55 gallon steel drums - pretty ingenious! The basis of the design is such that the fire is kept contained in one usually lower area while the heat and smoke are allowed to pass over the food in another before exiting via a chimney stack at the other end.
These old-school beasts are engineered from heavy duty high-temperature steel with a large 619 sq.inch cooking area. Multiple dampers give you total control over your pit as does the convenient fire access door which makes stoking or adding wood easy. Handles and 10" wheels are great for portability while the ash door is real handy when it comes time for clean up.
If you want to know more, here's some feedback from happy customer Gordon B, via Facebook:
Mine arrived on Monday and was easy to assemble, fun in fact. I ran it on charcoal and wood for a day to season it and cooked a feed of pork chops and steaks last night for dinner over some hickory chips and charcoal with a bit of banksia as well. Awesome! My son said it’s quite possibly the best pork chop he’d ever eaten.
I assembled it in the dark too, was pretty excited to get it running, just using the garden lights and the light on my phone. The instructions and procedure were crystal clear and really easy to follow. I only wish I'd actually read them before getting quite a way into it, in the true Kiwi style. The holes ALL lined up perfectly, the bolts were a good match for the threads and started easily, most screwed in by hand and just needed tweaking with a tool for the last bit.
Tweaking was easy as because each bolt head had a slot and a Philips cross so it didn't matter whether you had a couple of sockets of the right size, or a shifting spanner, or a Philips or a slot head screwdriver you could get it done.
I'm going to the trouble of writing this up because the manufacturers and designers have obviously gone to so much trouble to really get this smoker so easy to assemble then use. I have assembled a lot of "some assembly required" items over far too many years and this smoker is so far ahead of anything, ever. The tip is though, just open the box enough to find the instructions then sit down and read them, you'll be glad you did.
