I was at a Garage sale today. There was this cool looking smoker, (Smokette II (Model 008), sitting on the drive way. It was marked $250. Had been crossed out and said $50. I looked it over talked to the ppl and they said it still worked and it had belonged to their son. They said that he was moving and didn't have room for it. He gave it to them and they never used it.
Said he payed $475 brand new. It didn't sale Friday so they lowered it to $50 today. I offered $40 and got it.
The only thing wrong with it is there are NO grills in it. The side racks, firebox heating element.. everything is there and in excellent condition. They said when he moved he forgot to give them the grills and they have never used it since.
So I figure I just scored and EXCELLENT smoker for a very nice price and all I need to do is get 3 grills for it. I noticed at the Cookshack website they don't list this model any more. That's when I realized how old it was. I have ALL the documentation. Owner's manual Version 00.1 January 1, 2000.
Great info etc.
So I guess my question is.. Are the grill specs on the newer Smokette Original that's for sale now the same spec (size) as the one I have, (Smokette II Model 008)? I used measuring tape and it looks as if the grill size is 13 3/4 inches wide and about 13 inches deep? I need to take more accurate measurements but that was what I was able to approximate in the dark of my garage in a hurry before I had to help my sister at my mother's house.
Thanks for any advice you all may have.
