I'll post some pictures tonight. It's built like a tank and I can confirm that it's ridiculously heavy so moving it around a lot is not something one can do without some help - even with pneumatic wheels.

I'm upgrading from a COS so have always been a little "old school" just now have better tools.

Well guys, I pulled the trigger but on a different unit. I love the idea of a Peoria but I figured if I brought that thing home the wife would put a pillow and blanket inside and I'd be sleeping out there (just too big for now, I don't need to do a whole hog). So instead I ordered a MJH from Backyard BBQ, it's a vertical reverse flow with a significant amount of insulation (good for windy cold environment that I'm in). Maybe next time I'll go with the Peoria.

Troy, best of luck with your choice. I had the same choice to make between the backyard unit on a trailer for comps with all the options, or in my case, the MMIF. I bought the MMIF and have yet to look back. Bill and Sarah are honest and produce a product meant to last a lifetime.

Thanks Dave,

Hopefully as my skill increases (sell the wife, kids, judges, etc..) I'll upgrade to a big boy like you have. I really do like those PCC units.
