SJG - Outrider N Code
« on: April 08, 2018, 03:18:10 PM »
Hello there Amigos, saludos from Juarez Mexico
Look at what I found in El Paso TX
Seller had it in Face Book Market
I have been looking (still am) for a 18.5 or 22.5 WSM used... like the stories many of you have shared here in WKC im sure one day I will find one.
So back to my story... seller only had one picture and what I noticed is that it had a wooden handle (excited about the wooden handle) and it was 10dlls
So I rushed over the border and this is what i now have in my backyard =}
I have before and after cleaning pictures, hope all of you enjoy them
I did some investigation and this is what I have found: (please correct me if Iím wrong... Iím learning)
It has an N code on top vent so by the age chart this is a 1991
Smokey Joe Gold aka Outrider
It has a solid bowl with side vents
Three legs and a lid stand
I assume there is no need for charcoal grate as there is no bottom vent... (Iím I correct?)
I think my first cook will be good old fashion hamburgers for the familia!!!!

It is a SJG but not an Outrider. Those are 18.5" grills, also known as Smokey Joe Platinum.

Looks nice, but you still need a charcoal grate for airflow and so you don't burn out the bottom of the kettle. It sits one the thumbscrews that hold the legs on.

@addicted-to-smoke
Thank you for your input!!
Do you know if the charcoal grate is easy to find? Any Smokey Joe 14.5 would fit?

@Firemunkee
Thx :)

Yes I think a regular SJ charcoal grate is what you want.

From personal experience, a regular SJ 14.5 charcoal grate will fit the 14.5 "Outrider". 

According the SJ history writeup on this site, both the 14" & the 18" were also know as "the Outrider", but perhaps it is incorrect.
regards,
Hal
