Oklahoma Joe’s Smoker – History and Combo Parts

Oklahoma Joe’s Smoker Grill Combo: the newest model addition to our parts database.

Before we get to the Oklahoma Joe’s combo model, here’s some history about the company.

In 1987, Joe Davidson designed a high-quality barrel-stye smoker and crafted 12 himself. He brought them to the Oklahoma State Fair that year and sold them all. He went home with orders for over 100 more. Over the next ten years, the company grew and continued to create high-quality smokers, the Oklahoma Joe’s Smoker, made in the US.

In 1998, Char-broil purchased the company and began outsourcing the manufacturing of the smokers through their overseas relationships. Oklahoma Joe’s could produce many more smokers at a lower price point.  They now manufacture offset smokers, charcoal grills, drum smokers, portable grills, and pellet smokers.

More importantly, the Oklahoma Joe’s smoker grill combo uses both charcoal and liquid propane in dual chambers. This grill need the expertise of gas grill repair experts and that’s where we come in!

This Oklahoma Joe’s Smoker grill combos are “all-in-one beasts that offer supreme versatility,” according to their website.
