Its been a few months now of looking at Shirley photos and threads to finally get a build together. Looked a lot at Pauls - Cooker build (PJtexas1) and Jason (Jason TQ) as a template along with a few others.

The current build spec after what feels like 500 changes is:

24" by 55" Cabinet Model w/ Warmer and Insulated Firebox Modified Trailer

+ Stainless Steel shelf in front of cook chamber
+ Straight Back Elevated w/ 3 Grates in cook chamber
+ Warmer w/ 3 grates-
+ Hip Roof on warmer
+ Folding shelf for side of warmer
+ 2 welded rods on top of cook chamber and warmer (got this idea from Scott Allen (thegrimguy)
+ 3 Temperature probes
+ Both Dampers
+ Wood basket in back of cook chamber
+ 3 tubes for holding large umbrella

Please guys let me know if I may be missing something. Probably going to ask Paul to add a ash pan for the firebox.

Still debating if I should add burners.

Wanted to thank Sako (SSV3) was debating between Shirley and a LSG vertical offset that I was interested in a few years back and Sako answered all of my questions and than some. In the end he said it will probably be a once in a life time purchase, so just go with what you want.

Thanks everyone for all the threads, photos and comments through out the years. I learned so much and now feel confident on taking a new challenge with wood cooking.

Paul is building my cooker now to pick up first weekend of October. I'd recommend getting a spare tire mounted. Like Paul told me...it is cheap insurance. If you get a flat, 15 min and you're back on your way.

Congrats. Yeah was also thinking about the spare but this trailer is mainly going to be for home use with the occasional visit to family or friends. Choose to skip and use the funds on other options.

Its quite a while before mine comes in. How are containing your excitement.

Thank you Sako again for taking the time to provide me with so much information about your LSG veritical offset. Hopefully next year when she arrives, I can bring her by for a LSG Shirley cookout. Would be awesome to check LSG in action.

Have been thinking about that as well and will probably send Paul a message to add it into the build. Thanks.

Thank you Paul. The updated schedule sounds awesome. April - May sounds perfect. I will definitely let you know.

I might be sending you a message sometime today about adding in the ash pan for the firebox. Thanks Paul..

Shirley Fabrication is a Metals Fabricator in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. You can do a search for Shirley Cookers and there will be lots of photos and threads about the awesome smokers they build.

They are 2nd to none as builders and people... 1st rate all the way. Definitely give Paul and Tyler a call if you want a smoker built.

You can also visit them at: www.shirleyfabrication.com

Congrats Vince. I sent my deposit to Tyler back in June, and my build is scheduled for the second slot in March. Wish I knew that Paul was doing builds as well with a shorter wait time. Oh well.

Sounds like a dream cooker. A Shirley is in my 5 year plan. I was looking at Lang and Shirley, looks like Shirley is better suited for my needs. Well wants. :D

Paul does builds but they are usually the smaller ones given his shift at the refinery.

TCV21 beat me to it. Paul has a different schedule with this work at the refinery. I believe he announced on their facebook account that Paul would not be taking any orders until next year.

But congrats on your upcoming smoker.
