Absolutely beautiful smoker. Wow, very impressive. Nicer than nice - maybe the nicest one I've ever seen!

And what a great customer experience. I've never heard of any vendor opening their door like that to a stranger.

I love these threads. And the smile on your son's face is worth twice whatever you paid for the cooker. Congrats!

Yes, insulated Firebox. It was very responsive to adding wood. You'd watch the dial climb again pretty quickly (like within 2 minutes..) My splits are fairly small I guess.. and it was barely 50 degrees, and I was trying to keep it at 300 which may have been a little hot. It ran for about 11 hours total. I'm just guesstimating, but it did seem to gobble a lot of wood... but I don't have anything to compare it to except a COS that was smaller than the firebox on this thing.

Westy, you won't find anything even close to the build quality or price of a Shirley. I really can't recommend them enough.

Very nice hunk of hardware you got there, only problem I can see is it does not have enough spring handles on it.

Next time, if there ever is a next time, hire a wrecker truck to take that thing out, and put it right where you want it. Almost forgot, the food looked great.
Let us have a drink and by God lets us not think about the things we ain't never going to know about.

As previously stated - this is the best "I got a new smoker" thread I've ever seen! Very nicely done - the pix, the food, the reportage, the review - all of it! Wow! At some point down the road (a long way down the road, like a really, really super long way down the road) I'd like to get a big arse trailer rig, and SF is very high on my list of places to consider.

Welcome to the family. I know about how much fun it can be to get these cookers in and out of trailers. Four man job the first time. Here is my redneck engineering for our. It was a one man job in and out of the toy hauler for the last comp.

That is a 2500 lb winch from Harbor Freight.

Have fun
