Tejas Smokers Barbeque Pit

A friend of mine told me about the Tejas Smoker Barbeque Pit. It sounds like an amazing smoker. He said that it weighed a ton because of the high quality parts that go into the unit. It must have cost a fortune to ship. Anyone out there using it and has an opinion?

  1. Ii have a tejas smoker 1628c. This smoker is fantastic and does an awesome job for all your smoking needs. Since owning it my family no longer eats bbq out it no longer touches what I make at home. Brisket,ribs or bird it's all great! The temperature control on this pit is second to none better than the oven in our home. The best part I mention last... Tejas customer service is outstanding.i can say with 100% fact,you get what you pay for. Tejas smokers are the best. Take my word and all the other satisfied customers that own these pits.

    I've had the pleasure of using a 1628 for the last 12 years and it looks and works as good as it did from day one. As the other review says, the customer service is excellent. The owner of 'Tejas' helped me with any questions and made sure I was happy with the smoker. The weight of this unit is a testament of it's longevity. This unit is built to be become an heirloom.

  3. I waited 82 days after payment to receive my order from Tejas. I'm not sure who was previously in charge of this outfit, but the product and customer service currently are substandard. What their website shows and what actually ends up on your doorstep are worlds apart. No invoice, poorly packaged, castings of extremely poor quality (employee told me their parts ship in from out of country), wrong parts, parts partially assembled and incorrectly at that...wow. I caution you carefully consider doing business under the present conditions.
