The Good-One Heritage Oven is designed as an Outdoor Kitchen Insert. Although it looks like their large Marshall smoker that has an upper cabinet oven with three adjustable height racks, it is more related to their popular Open Range model and has an identical firebox. There are ten different mounting positions for the racks and an additional rack may be purchased.
The design is driven by requests from dealers and customers who want a true Smoker/Grill that drops into a 30″ outdoor kitchen setup with no need for customization. Like the Open Range model, Heritage uses the same concepts of an offset smoker, but it works better. There is a front firebox and grill that has three air intakes and a damper that runs the entire length of the firebox that controls smoke and heat to the smokebox. The wide damper provides much more even heat from left to right that an offset barrel smoker that positions the fire offset to one side. There are two exhaust dampers at the top of the smokebox. The “spinner” design of the intake and exhaust vents is very clever. The smoke and heat enter the rear of the smoke box along the entire length and circulate around the meat. The firebox is large enough to grill on or you can use it for crisping the meat and sauce over high heat after you’ve smoked. You can even grill and smoke at the same time. A slide out ash tray up front comes in handy. We wondered if heat from the front fire box made tending the smoke cabinet unpleasant, but The Good-One claims they have had no complaints.
The housing is heavy steel with black, high temp powder coating. Two stainless steel front doors with stay cool coiled handles blend harmoniously with the rest of your shiny installation. The three racks provide 996 square inches of cook surface in the smoke box and there is a 332 square inch grill rack over the firebox. Heritage is also offered as a cart model for an additional $100.
The Good-One Smoker/Grill was founded in 1988 by father and son entrepreneurs, Ron and Larry Goodwin. In March of 2007, Ace of Hearts BBQ Specialties purchased The Good-One product line and partnered with Goodwin Industries, the manufacturer of The Good-One to expand the brand nationally. In 2013 The Good-One was bought by Landmark Manufacturing. Landmark has established a subdivision named Good-One Manufacturing to manufacture and distribute the smokers, charcoal, and flavored woods. Landmark will be manufacturing all models at their factory in Gallatin Missouri where modern fabrication processes have enabled them to reduce the cost of The Good-One while improving quality! Here’s champion Pitmaster, Chris Marks of The Good-One, displaying their AmazingRibs.com Top Ten Trophy while giving us a tour of their popular Open Range Model.
