Congratulations! I am very happy with my LSG purchase, however I would have eliminated the charcoal basket and the ash pan if I were ordering again. The best upgrade IMO is the warming oven and the 8" casters since it raises the grate height. Anxious to see your new baby and hear your review once you get a few cooks.

Very helpful feedback, thank you. Do you mind giving your thoughts on the charcoal basket and Ash pan?

My experience is that charcoal doesn't work well in a horizontal offset, except for laying down an initial coal bed to start the wood splits. So I wouldn't waste the money.

I'd definitely get the ash pan. They are really easy to make if you decide you want to add one later though.

Definitely the ash. The one LSG makes will last at least 46 lifetimes, maybe 47.

The 8" casters do just like BillN says...they raise the working height of the smoker. Does not sound like much but it really does make a nice difference.

Congrats on your new smoker. I was actually at Lone Start Grillz yesterday. I didn't get a good look at the new pits but Chris was cooking on one from what I saw they look nice.

I just ordered one of their Santa Maria grills so I'm right there with you on excitement and waiting for the new cooker to be completed

Wow! I was standing there at LSG last year with check book in hand to order one of their Santa Maria grills but decided against it thinking I would not use it as much as I thought. After all, I have two BGE's to grill with......

Now I wish I had done it. The grills are fantastic.

What would be a good way to make one? I'm handy-ness challenged :)

I hadn't even considered that benefit, but that is great! I ordered them.

I have a Kamado that i use to grill now as well as a fire pit with a moveable grill, but I've always wanted a Santa Maria grill. After seeing the one Chris had at the shop I had to go for it. I love cooking over an open fire and this will work better for me than the fire pit I have now. I grill at least 3 times a week so it will get plenty of use.

Sorry for the thread hijack.
