I came all of the way from Chicago to look at this smoker and I finally got a chance to see it in Gulfport, MS and believe me I was not disappointed and I just had to have this smoker - I have looked at several smokers in this price range and believe me you can't beat the Old Country line of smokers for the money and quality - I am looking forward to using it soon as the weather breaks in my area.
Bought mine in November 2013 after reading all the positive reviews. I compared the welds, fit and finish of the Pecos smokers on hand and I chose the best of the three they had in stock. They do vary in quality. After much searching for a smoker of this size, w/ firebox, the Old Country Pecos was my choice and believe me, it is the way to go for an Under $500 smoker of this size and weight. The only option added to my Pecos smoker was the Old Country 3 inch temperature gauge, which was easy to ... install. These Pecos smokers Will Cook. For the last three months I have cooked several briskets, spare ribs, beef ribs, sausage and even pork butts. All with outstanding results. My Pecos smoker works great. It's all weld, and heavier that almost all of the competition in this size and price range. I could not be happier with my purchase. If your in the market for a great smoker and do not want to spend over $500, I highly recommend this smoker to you.
I bought this a week ago, seasoned it Friday and cooked on it Sunday. I've been smoking meat for close to 30 years and was excited about this smoker. It does have some flaws. The damper got stuck, the firebox door opened about 1/4 of an inch when I was seasoning it. For me, no big deal and I can modify it as needed, make adjustments or even break and re-weld crooked hinges. With that being said, I was able to maintain temperature for 13 hours with a little work. If you want to set it and forget ... it, don't buy this smoker, get a propane or electric smoker. Overall, great smoker for the money.
I purchased this smoker after doing my homework for a couple of months and I made the right choice. It is a very heavy smoker which is good for smoking because it will hold heat better then lighter models. I also love the fact that I can take a rack out and put in in the firebox and also use it as a grill. Last weekend I was smoking butts and ribs and at the same time grilled steaks and wings on the same rig. I would recommend this product to anyone that is tired of cheaper smoker that rust out ... and doesn't hold heat well. Great product! And also great customer service at my local Academy helping me getting it loaded up! Thank you!!
Well down here in the East Coast ! Philadelphia we would never find such a Smoker if this caliper . I received my smoker last week . This Sunday did my first 2 Pork Butts .

The quality And love that went I to this design of grill is Awsome well worth every Dollar Spent . I totally recommend this Grill
I am really enjoying my Brazos smoker. It holds heat extremely well and keeps a proper cooking temperature with little attention. The drain works very well when I steam the cooking area after I'm done smoking. I was worried about my ability to smoke being new to this kind of cooking but found it easier than expected with the Brazos smoker.
We have owned our grill for almost 2 years. My husband loves it. The capacity is phenomenal. We have experienced no issue with the distance between the fire box and the smoker. The only problem we had was trying to find a cover to protect it from the weather. We ended up having to get a tarp and wrap it. It's not pretty but it works. We also had an issue with one of the thermometers however Academy Sports replaced it at no cost. We are extremely pleased with our purchase and look forward to ... having the grill for many years to come.
We love this smoker. The temperature keeps really well in it. Only downside is it doesn't come with thermometers like in the picture.
I have had this unit for 4 years and it held up ok. The unit was easy to use and great value, however 3 months in the built in thermo.. broke.. 1 year in the wood tray started to rust away... 2 years in the ignighter section fell apart.... 3 years in the knob broke for the temp and finally it decided to go up in a blaze of glory today when the regulator decided to fail open full. Never smoke with this unit unattended.
Was asked to smoke butts for the High School Band and my old smoker just didn't have the space I needed. This one offered plenty of space and was able to maintain the desired temperature. Would give it 5 stars but I fond the water pan to be a bit small especially during a long cook.
I bought this Saturday after my firebox on my cheap smoker had rusted out. I was very impressed for the first go around, and felt like it contained heat extremely well and was very easy to operate. Performed great on a pork butt, chicken wings, and ribs. Going to do a brisket next, now that its seasoned. Easily kept it at 215-230 for the first 7 hours and started tinkering with ventilation after adding too many pieces of wood and had a flare up due to user error. It quickly choked back down ... to a comfortable temperature range.
Bought this today got some wood in it and it seasoned perfect at 225-245 with a perfect blue smoke. Looks to hold alot and seemed very well built. Will be adding a few hangers here and there and a handle to wheel onto a trailer but well worth the money.
Im so glad i got this model. Perfect size!! Easy to transport.
Picked up this smoker fully assembled 3 days ago & seasoned the smoker the next day. Loaded up some char-broil lump charcoal into the firebox and smoked some ribs & chicken the next day. Temperatures remained constant at 225 degrees for well over 3 hours and all sides of my meat took in the pecan smoke flavor. Not that heavy either to load into the back of my pickup also. My meat came out very juicy but with am amazing outside bark from the smoke.
Really good smoker. Only problem, ribs and brisket need to be cut to fit inside the tube. Cooks, and holds temp. well.
I bought this 6 months ago and its been great but every time I smoke meat in it the meat starts to scream like its been brought back to life. Please fix
Bought this smoker for Memorial Day Weekend I am new to smoking meats I have used it 2 times and everything turned out great, smoked pork and beef ribs and turkey legs. Great smoke taste. Excellent product and very good price from Academy Sports
I bought this to do some holiday cooking. the meat turned out great. the smoker is very easy to manage & maintain throughout the cooking process. It arrived a few days earlier than expected which was great! I would recommend this product to anyone!
Absolutely love this smoker. Assembly was easy, took about 45 minutes. Listened to the suggestions others had on their reviews like using a larger cast iron pan and using wood chunks instead of chips. Glass on the door a plus to monitor the meat. Temperature gauge fairly accurate. Smoker is so simple to use, monitor, and food turns out great!
I bought this for a Christmas present and it is the best present and smoke we have ever had. With a large family, this smokes perfectly no matter what is inside, ribs, salmon, cheese, beans, roasts, even hot dogs and sausages. I with there was a way to add chips without burning fingers but otherwise, best smoker, yet!
