Smokin Tex Clean Up

Cleaned up kind of good.

Before



After



Just have to find a knob now. They want $11.00 for a new decal that goes around the knob. They can keep it.

Re: Smokin Tex Clean Up

I have one just like that my cousin in-law gave me but, it was brand new. He ordered it along with a couple of hundred dollars worth of different smoking woods and after seasoning it, decided he didn''t want it. He gave it all to me and wouldn't take a penny for it. So, every so often when I smoke something, I send him some. In fact I'm due to take it out and use it and bring him something good.

It is a nice smoker and you've cleaned it up real nice. Check you local Home Depot or Lowe's for a knob. It would be in that specialty bin for all kinds of stuff. You could also check an appliance parts store.

Re: Smokin Tex Clean Up

My brother and I restore appliances. I'm sure there is a knob kicking around the shop.
I did chicken parts in it today. I like the thing.

Good job on the clean up. Now you won't have to ask your wife if you could borrow hers.

Yea, I think she loves her WSM more than me. Every damn time I get it out I get "what are you doing with my Webber"

Re: Smokin Tex Clean Up

Found a knob today. It's all finished. High is Low and Low is High. who cares if the numbers are backwards. The T-Stat turns clockwise.

Re: Smokin Tex Clean Up

If the knob and the face plate are two different things, flip the face plate and write your own numbers on it...Or ....DUCT TAPE and SHARPIE (You can read this as "duck tape" and "sharpy")

Re: Smokin Tex Clean Up

Dumb ass. I know what is what, I'll just roll with it. Smokin Tex sure is not like Weber! $11.00 for a decal. Think I might take it up to the"flea Market" and unload it, after the novelty wares off. I'd like a Weber Performer for the winter with a cover. Yea, got to chain that down too so it don't get lost. Be nice to scoot out, hit a button and get thing's rolling when the snow get's here. Think I'll post it on Crags list first. Who Knows.
