Holy FARK!!!!

It showed up TODAY!

After shipping MOAB back to Klose and it being more destroyed on the return trip, i was hesitant about having another shipped up and was considering alternatives(thanks Tim). I spoke to Monty, Dave Kloses Fabricator and told him some of the stuff i saw wrong with the old design. The plan was to get together and work on Version II. WE never hooked up, so I thought stuff was still on hold. I was seriously considering going with a differnt type cooker this time, but Oh well...guess I'll just have to settle.

MOAB v2 showed up today. SURPRISE to me. Called Monty and he said it was tested for 3 days and works amazingly well. It seems seasoned allready, opened up and the smell of mesquite hit me right tween the eyes.

Due to the lowered firebox its not top heavy this time.. It shipped with a medical equipment shipping company that ships MRI equipment and such.. Trucker said they specialize in shipping highend or fragile equipment. Behind the smoker on the truck were 2 $60,000 choppers(motorcycles) shipped form southern california. I asked if he'd drop them off instead, but he declined. :) The pit was shrinkwrapped, wrapped in padding and strapped to the wall. Other company had it rolling around the back of the truck and bouncing off walls. Guess Dave switching shipping companies. This puppy arrived in pristine condition. Not a scratch.

Got a little work to do and then gonna find something to cook. :) Rob.. u still comin out tomorrow?
