Smile Its Official Shirley Order has been Placed.

Excited super Excited. After a few weeks of back and forth emails with Paul payment has been sent and received. The best part was the wifey actually paid the deposit.

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.

Thank you. Paul gave me a rough time table of beginning of summer. I'm pretty sure they are swamped so dont mind waiting extra 1-2 weeks. That is what I'm saying now but come next year may be a different story. hahaha

I can only imagine what you'll go through for the next several months. I just got my new Lang after 6 weeks of torture while drooling over everyone elses pits.
I looked seriously at the Shirleys but at my age can't wait that long for anything.
I just got it this past weekend and now may have to wait for the new tropical storm to pass before I can actually cook anything.
I think both are great cookers and you'll be thrilled when you can finally fire it up!

Awesome setup! Glad you got it just the way you want. I would trade my burner for that ss shelf on the side of the warmer and umbrella holders. Didn't see those until way after mine was built.
