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.
