Default First Cook on My Shirley Fabrication Smoker

I made the trip down to Tuscaloosa yesterday for my new smoker. Can't say enough about what super people the Shirley family are and what awesome cookers they make. To those people that have only seen pic of their cookers I can tell you they don't do these things any justice. You have to see them in person to know how great they are built. Those that have one of these know exactly what I'm talking about. This is a 24x48 patio model with a 3/8 cook chamber and fire box. This thing is a tank to say the least. This is my first stick burner so there will be a learning curve for me for sure but I'm looking forward to it.



First butt on...ribs later

Congrats! Looking good! Yeah, to say these things are beasts is an understatement. The 3/8" thickness really makes these things monsters!

I can't wait until Wednesday when I fire mine back up.

I love it!
No disrespect to any of the many great builders out there but in the realm of price/quality/customer service those Bama boys truly are in a class all alone..


Enjoy!

Can't take credit for the cart. That goes to Paul and others before me.
