• ABOUT THE 1969

    The “1969” is our flagship offset smoker. Powerful, yet compact, this smoker can handle three briskets, accommodating your cooking needs for small backyard gatherings to competitive events. The “1969” features one of the thickest walls in the industry at nearly 3/8” (.344"), and boasts a significant amount of cooking space with two grates totalling 41” x 19.” 


    As proven successful for our sister company Primitive Pits, the 1969 is designed using computational fluid dynamics to ensure this unit burns extremely even.  The 1969 comes stock with a fold-down smoke stack, two thermometers, and a probe port for six wires to monitor your BBQ temperatures. 


    The Cowboy Grill is an economical, optional feature which allows you to use your firebox as a direct heat source - because we all know cooking steaks over wood takes your cookout to a whole new level. Additionally, if you would like to add a top pull-out rack for nearly twice the cooking space, it is available as an add-on as well, and comes with one additional thermometer.


    The wagon package is a great addition to the backyard, as it allows you to pull your smoker over grass, gravel, etc.  The wagon package can be added to any of our smoker models.  The width of the wagon (across both tires) on the 1957 and 1969 is 37” and the width for the 1975 model is 39”.  Please note, we are not able to add the side cart option to the wagon build.


    For exterior finish, we pioneered the extremley popular, RAW linseed oil coating. With a few light maintence applications annually, you can keep your smoker looking brand new for decades.  Click HERE for a video on the simple process for maintaining the raw finish exterior.

    All of our smokers are built by hand, and we have had a lead time since our launch in December 2019. Since then, we have experienced an enormous amount of growth.  We believe this to be a direct result of the outstanding performance, excellent craftsmanship, robust materials used and our competitive pricing.  With an order today, we are able to turn around any smoker, with any option including trailers in 175 days.  Within two weeks after you place your order, you will receive an estimated start date for production.  We do not currently have any models in stock available for purchase right away.
