Default I've joined the stick burning ranks

After starting out on a Weber A series grill in 2002 and doing my first tepid pork shoulder to good reviews from neophytes, I feel like I have finally arrived.

Sure, I've had a few UDSes and even a Tulsa-made charcoal oven - but look what the delivery guy brought to my urban Atlanta home today:



My last smoker. (Right....) A Meadow Creek SQ36, delivered to my door for $175 (plus the regular price of the thing). Yup, $175 for the freight charge. So that's why I moved on it. Ordered it last Friday night - it was shipped from AZ Monday and arrived today at about noon. Awesome!














I'm very impressed with how well this thing is put together at the price. I couldn't believe the weight of this sucker. Stainless racks (guaranteed not to rust) and I opted for the second rack and cover, too. They even threw in a big bag of oak mini-logs. I'm happy to share the retailer's name if we can do that kind of stuff here. Burning it in now... it's ready for some serious meat to be thrown on it.

What timing too, wife commences a detox tomorrow AM! Oh well...

Paint on the inside???? WTF i hope thats just some widespread.. evenly spread seasoning.. not paint.. but it sure looks like they painted it.. that may explain why you got such a good price for it..

Just saw (I assume the edit) the $175 was the freight charge plus the price of the pit.

That was the freight cost...sorry. Still cost me an arm and a leg - but admittedly I wasn't clear!

Dude, you made my Friday. I was already thinking up the talk track to the wife for when that thing showed up in front of my house (and what card to put it on that she wouldn't catch until it was too late). Thanks for the clarification.
