LOVE THIS SMOKER!
I’ve been cooking for years, but this is my first smoker. I did lots of shopping around, watched lots of YouTube videos and strongly debated wheather to go old school or go with an automatic type smoker.
Obviously I went old school and I’m glad I did! I jumped in with both feet by smoking a brisket on my first go around.
The brisket didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked, but I learned a lot about the Oklahoma Joes. My next adventure was Back Ribs. Wow! They were a little overcooked but the flavor was fantastic.
At this very moment I am smoking more ribs, using the 3-2-1 method and keeping the temperature between 200 and 225 degrees F. I used a rub with 1 part kosher salt, 3 parts coarse ground black pepper, a dash of garlic powder and a dash of onion powder. Three hours of smoking, two hours wrapped in foil with 3/4 cup apple juice and back on the smoker, then around one hour on the smoker unwrapped.
If you are the kind of person who is as interested in the process as you are with the final product, this smoker is for you. There is definitely a learning curve, but luckily there is a wealth information about smoking online, which makes it well within anyone’s reach. The Oklahoma Joe’s isn’t as heavy as a professional smoker, but it is well built and it’s perfect for the home cook who wants to produce authentic smoked foods.
I purchased the reverse flow smoker only because there is the option of doing just offset smoking or reverse flow smoking. So far I’ve only used the reverse flow option and I’m very pleased with the results.
We’ve always gone further for flavor. Joe Davidson knew that in order to succeed, he’d have to build smokers that far exceeded expectations. So when he saved up $2,000 to design and manufacture twelve meat smokers, he poured his heart and soul into them.
The result? People bought up all twelve at the 1987 Oklahoma State Fair, and Joe received orders for over 100 more. He hit the road and sure enough, the smokers were a hit everywhere he went. This spark grew into the flame where Oklahoma Joe’s was first forged.
