This means that your Luling Offset smoker, which is made entirely of ¼” steel, has been carefully constructed to provide a perfectly stable and flat cooking surface for all your smoking needs.
The Luling Offset Smoker will help you produce Central Texas BBQ at its finest. There is nothing finer than a slow cooked brisket that has been basking in a smoke bath for hours. Caramelized bark and fall-off-the-bone meat will leave you momentarily speechless, we guarantee it!
With superior heat management and rugged construction, each of our Luling Offset Smokers come with steel wagon wheels to easily carry the hundreds of pounds of meat-smoking machine, stay cool spring handles so you don’t burn your mitts, a pot warmer on the firebox, a heavy duty log grate, as well as newly added upgrades such as a door counter weight, a second level, full slide-out cooking shelf, an extra 3” temperature gauge, a temperature probe-port, and a hanging aluminum grease pail.
Prepare to impress your friends and family with the Luling Offset Smokers’ ability to handle anything from a backyard birthday BBQ, to the professional circuit. You will be surprised at the Luling’s efficiency and ease of use. Offset smokers can be notoriously tricky for smoking newbies, but not so with the Luling! Dual dampers for airflow adjustment, 3” multi-temp zone heart gauges and leak free, all-steel construction means that the Luling smoker will provide you with steady temperatures with fewer adjustments over the hours of smoking. This efficient design also means that you will require less wood to produce the maximum amount of heat, since you won’t be losing any temperature through any leaky weld seams or through thin metal construction.
Luling was founded in 1874 as a railroad town and became a rowdy center for the cattle drivers on the Chisholm Trail. Contempt of the law by the cowboys helped Luling become known as the "toughest town in Texas". After the great cattle drives ended in the late 1880s, Luling quieted down to a town of about 500 and cotton ruled the local economy. Perhaps due to arrival of immigrants, in the late-19th century, Luling began a long, slow, period of growth, and by 1925 the population reached 1,500.
One of the most significant events in Luling's history was the discovery of oil by Edgar B. Davis. Davis mortgaged everything he owned to finance drilling operations around Luling.
As oil grew in importance in the 1930s and 1940s, the railroads that helped form the town declined and largely pulled out of Luling.
