There are lots of cleaners out there, but some leave a slick film on the floor. I'm using Pledge right now - it's not greasy.

I purchased mine from GrillWraps.com. They have all the dimensions. It is made from marine sunbrella fabric. It has a zipper on the side, quick release buckles on the bottom, and is reinforced over the exhaust stack and ball valves. There is a 4-5 week wait after you order.

Default Great Cooker

Just 2 hours into my seasoning and I am really ecstatic about this cooker. It handles very similar to my Backwoods Smoker.
I used a small, 7.9 lb. bag of charcoal and started with just under 1/2 full chimney of lighted briquettes. The ambient temp was 43 degrees and it was 28 degrees just a few hours before. The water pan was dry.
This baby was up to 225 degrees in 35 minutes, only about 10 minutes more than my Backwoods which is only 1/2 the size. I choked her down at 225 and the temp only rose another 10 degrees - the Backwoods would have overshot if I did that.
This baby also draws extremely well. I have found that cookers that don't draw well, like the Weber Smoky Mountain, don't produce quite as good flavor - more like cooking in an oven.
I couldn't be more happy about this cooker.

I used Weiman Stainless Steel Wipes $3.62 on Amazon. I wipe the whole door down, tops bottom and sides and it removes all the scum. Then with a clean cloth I do a little buffing. Bright shiny and new looking once done! They come as small linked wipes, no spraying, and no overspray. Sorry i'm obsessed! This should go away soon.... I think!

Finished my seasoning last night. 7.9 lbs. of charcoal lasted 10 hours - not too shabby. This is one efficient smoker.

Mike, looks like you got the same or similar color as mine. Was your color choice "smoke"?

I emailed LSG a few days ago and asked about turn around time, but I haven't heard anything so far.

I'll admit it. I'm lazy, that's why I bought a pre made cover!

Mine arrived in 5 weeks. I hope you get the same, or shorter!
