It made it to the ground safely, we unpack-aged it and plan to give it a test run tomorrow. Gonna let it season for about 3 hours and then put a few yard birds on for dinner. I must say it's an expensive purchase but CookShack does load you up with tons of free (but highly paid for LOL) rubs and sauces, along with a smok'n book and several other goodies. The unit is larger than I imagined, my 13 year old son is in the pic to give it some scale. I could not find many pic's online that gave it scale when I was looking.
