February 15, 1882 they platted the town site of Pearsall east of the newly laid railroad tracks opposite Waggoner’s Well and named after the vice president of the railroad, Thomas W. Pearsall.
By 1884, Pearsall was the new county seat of Frio County and had 700 residents, twenty businesses, three hotels, three churches, a district school, and a weekly newspaper known as the Pearsall News. Located at the beginning of the Chisolm Trail, Pearsall saw numerous cattle drives down its main street on their way to Kansas and other famous cattle stops further north. It also experienced the usual cattle trail public hangings and bar brawl until the unfenced open range came to an end in 1887.
In 1936 Pearsall had an estimated population of 2,536 and forty-one businesses. Oil was discovered in the 1930s, natural gas was introduced in 1945, and many of Pearsall’s avenues were paved in 1947.

If you’re looking for a way to make plenty of smoked meat, a vertical smoker may be a great choice for you. Our vertical smokers allow for the maximum amount of meat to be smoked in an efficient, upright space.
Using our Seminole Smokehouse, you’ll find that you can easily fill the large smoking chamber with rib racks, briskets and pork shoulders to bursting. Vertical smokers also permit you to do everything standing, which can be a real benefit for those who struggle with back issues. Everything from placing meat on the grill, spritzing and turning the meat, and wrapping in tinfoil can be done from a standing position, since the grills are easily access through the large lid, as opposed to the narrow, waist-high door on horizontal offset smokers.
Vertical smokers have a smaller footprint than traditional offset smokers, which can be a real benefit to those with less space. If you’re working with a smaller backyard, you’ll notice that a vertical smoker permits you the same quality and taste as an offset smoker, but without the added room. Many people will also add vertical smokers to their collection for the option of smoking massive amounts of meat in one go.
Our vertical smokers are made from the same heavy steel construction as our offset smokers. This allows for maximum heat retention, which creates the perfect environment for the low and slow style of smoking that produces tender, fall-off-the-bone smoked meat. Our fully welded seams mean that you won’t experience the smoke or heat leakage associated with cheaper vertical smokers.
Our vertical smokers are also equipped with dual temperature gauges that permit you to keep an eye on the temperature in different sections, allowing you to assess how things are cooking throughout your smoker.
