The Horizon Smoker Company is owned by veteran pit maker, Roger Davidson. Davidson started the late great Oklahoma Joe Smoker company with his brother Joe. The brand was sold to Char-Broil, then killed by Char-Broil who prefers to make lightweight, cheap cookers. For a period of time, Davidson made his solid 1/4" pits under the Brinkmann name. Now back in Perry, OK, where the Davidsons began making heavy duty smokers in 1988, Roger continues his craft under the Horizon name.
Residential smokers are typically 16 and 20" diameters and come in four styles: Patriot, Classic, Marshall and Ranger. Marshall is also offered in a 24" size. These models feature large, steel wagon wheels for easy moving despite their weight. Horizon also makes a wide selection of accessories and larger model smokers for competitive and commercial use.
Horizon 30" Double Door Smoker Trailer
Horizon's 30" Double Door Smoker Trailer has to be good because owner, Roger Davison (below), has one in his backyard. Davison has made high quality 1/4" pits for decades since he started Oklahoma Joe Smokers.
Bigger is better according to Davison. He feels large Horizon offsets distribute and hold heat more evenly than the junior models. This big boy has 2,655 square inches of grill area with a 72" horizontal cooking chamber and 24" firebox. A wood storage box, slide out prep table, LP log lighter system and 15" tires and wheels are standard. Allow 6-10 weeks for production.
