Let me know how you get the beast out of the crate. I rolled mine out of the crate by placing some plywood on one side so the it dropped down about a half inch onto the plywood and rolled down the rest of the way to the pavement. I left the side rails up on either side of the wheels to create a track so the wheels did not creep off the 2x4's that the wheels were resting on.. You will see what I mean when your smoker arrives. Posting pictures I hope?
Mike, you must have had yours delivered to the house. If you pick up the crate at the freight terminal, the fork lift will place the crate in your trailer so those 2X4 tracks face the side of the trailer.

You don't have room to roll it out from the track.

We had to disassemble the crate and pallet in order to roll the smoker out. What a job that was. We were joking we wanted to take the nail gun away from the worker who put this together. You never saw so many nails.

Finally got "TEX" out and all wrapped up in his new Grill Wraps cover.
