Backwoods Smoker - The Pro Junior

Suggested by Backwoods customers to create a model between the Competitor and Professional model cookers.   They listened, and created the Pro Junior!

They  took their Professional cooker and cut down on the size to give people more mobility when transporting this unit.   The standard Pro Junior comes with Stainless doors, latches, and slider valve to open and close the butterfly valve on the top of the cooker.
