Renowned BBQ Pitmaster Myron Mixon’s smallest H2O 36 Water Smoker fits 16 slabs of baby back ribs on cooking two shelves and is big enough to roast a small pig. An Automatic Water System ensures the large built-in water pan never goes dry. Hook it up to a regular garden hose and a valve replenishes the water pan whenever levels drop below three inches. A large drain valve comes in handy when it’s time to shut down.
These smokers are heavy duty with excellent fit and finish. All models have one inch thick insulation. The firebox is inside, at the bottom of the smoker and features a slide out, removable coal/wood basket. It is not designed to be used as a grill. Dampers on the firebox door and two large chimneys help regulate heat and smoke. Convenient work shelves on the front and side are included. Standard finish is black powdercoat, but Mixon will paint ’em the as you like: camouflage to hot rod flames. Many custom options are available from chrome smoke stacks to all stainless steel models.

Myron Mixon Smokers
Few faces in the world of barbecue are as familiar as Myron Mixon, the “Winningest Man” in competitive barbecue and often referred to simply as “The King”. Mixon and brother Tracey learned the craft from their father, Jack Mixon, and started his namesake competition team, Jack’s Old South. As Pitmaster of Jack’s Old South, Mixon won over 180 grand championships, 30 state championships, 11 national championships, 4 world championships and represents the only team to win grand championships in the Memphis in May, Kansas City Barbecue Society, and Florida Barbecue Association contests in the same year. All totaled he has earned over 1800 trophies so far! In 2013 he was inducted into The Barbecue Hall Of Fame.
Mixon is the star of Destination America’s BBQ Pitmasters Series and author of the New York Times bestselling cookbook, “Smokin’ with Myron Mixon”. He also made numerous television appearances on shows including: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Conan, ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC’s TODAY show and QVC.
The best advice on how to make great barbecue came from his old man. “Daddy said to cook it ’til it’s done”, relates Mixon, “Now that may seem obvious, but you have guys who got up early and get impatient if it’s taking longer than expected. I don’t care if you drank a damn twelve pack, or it’s raining or whatever; you got friends and family waiting for some good barbecue. Cook it ’til it’s done”!
All Myron Mixon Smokers are made in the USA in Waterford, CT where Mixon has partnered with Rob Marelli, founder and CEO of Seconn Fabrication, (below). Seconn is an award winning facility that specializes in sheet metal, robotics and automation industries. Seconn clients include health care and military suppliers who demand quality and consistency to meet required specs and certifications.
Mixon and Marelli have an interesting history, partnership and friendship that melds old school southern barbecue with high tech engineering and manufacturing.
