That looks like an older Ok Joe but nice shape. I too would have loaded it on the truck right then and there. Nice find. Get a pic when it's restored.

Can do! Very Happy


What should I do about the rust on the inside? Should I take a wire wheel to it, and reseason the cooker?

I will, of course, wire wheel and paint the outside.

I would wire wheel and then naval jelly... But wire wheel and season would probably be good enough. I am just a huge fan of naval jelly when it comes to rust...

So I have begun work on my new machine here. I have an assortment of wire brushes from hand brushes to wire wheels that fit into the drill chuck. I have begun the laborious process of stripping all the rust off.

How far do I need to take it down?

the inside has some metal that has flaked off, but it is all still fairly heavy. it is definitely not 1/4", but is by far more heavy duty than anyting I could get around here for that kind of price.

I will hand brush most of the inside, except what I can get to with the drill, then coat and season. I bought some high temp stove paint for the outside.

I am planning on removing the cooker from the stand so I can clean it better, and replacing the nuts and bolt hardware. Especially that for the door and vents, they are pretty rusty and make it hard to open/close. should I use stainless??

I am was hoping to take the lids of the cooking and fire box off, but they won't come off due to the hinge arraingement.

I will post some pictures this coming weekent with the progress.

It works on rust, and sounds like a sex toy.... Where can you go wrong?

Just wire wheel it until no more is flying off. Knock it back down to solid and somewhat clean material. When the dust is not flying - you are golden.

Bob, that brings back fond memories for me . . . my first smoker was that exact model . . . I loved it and learned to cook great on it, but the small size is what finally made me decide to sell it--and then I went off the deep end!

But did you ever really learn the difference between pork butt and brisket?

It's less than half the current retail price, a 57% discount, not including sales taxes. Looks like a pretty good deal to me.

I think the removeable ash drawer at the bottom of the firebox shows it's a current production model, like the model shown in the link at Academy.

Here's the 16" Horizon model - no removeable ash drawer

I had no idea they'd made a 13" model, but they show a 16" model and 20" model in that configuration on Horizon's web site.

Here's my similar 24" OK Joe's original (with my mods). Nameplate shows 1991 construction.
