Default Shirley Fabrication is finally in Las Vegas

I finally got my new SF smoker from TQ (Paul Shirley). I drove all the way from Las Vegas to Tuscaloosa to pick up the smoker. It was the trip from hell, I had my mother, nephew, and two daughters in the truck with me. It was one of those trips that can only be explained by Murphy's law. It all changed once I made it to Tuscaloosa, I pulled up to Paul's house and I saw that beautiful smoker sitting out front. It made me for at least a couple of minutes forget that i was just contemplating killing my mother and kids! Hey don't judge me, we've all have been there.
Meeting Paul and his son was great, just a shinning example of southern hospitality. Paul's wife came out and spoke with my mother, just an all around class act, everyone should get a chance to meet him. I wanted to meet Paul and his son Tyler, before they got to big and opened a factory. Which I think is possible because of the quality of this cooker. They Are Rock stars in the Smoking meat world.
I had a long drive, first stop Alton IL (across for St Louis) I was there for two days and everywhere I went I had to stop and open up this Armour tank they call a smoker and let people take pictures. I had to fire it up, well because you just have to. this was a cooking trip around the mid west. I had 3 other stops my home town of Milwaukee WI, had to stop and Q up. I dropped of my mother, nephew and daughters along with a truck load of my grandmothers crap that she left in Vegas two years ago. I never seen some one with that many towels. it seem like such a great idea to drive and pick up my smoker, because I had to send my grand mother her crap, fly the kids to Milwaukee and ship my grill to Vegas, it was $1500 to pick it up myself.
I also stopped in Kansas City for Fathers day with my brother and a stop at the observatory in Arizona to have some ribs with some colleagues of mine. so FINALLY i'm home and I have this beautiful dream of a smoker back in Las Vegas.
Let me tell you this, if you want a smoker that is light weight with lid that you can open with one hand and leaks smoke.THIS IS NOT THE SMOKER FOR YOU!

If you want a cooker that will use up a lot of fuel and you have to check the temp every 15 mins. THIS IS NOT THE SMOKER FOR YOU!

If you want a smoker that you paid thousands of dollars for and you have to make modifications to it. THIS IS NOT THE SMOKER FOR YOU!

If you want a smoker that's just sitting on a trailer and not custom built into the trailer. THIS IS NOT THE SMOKER FOR YOU!

If you want a smoker that has a bunch of hot and cold spot on it and it takes forever to smoke some food because you had no idea part of it was in a cold spot and the other half is burnt because its in a hot spot. THIS IS NOT THE SMOKER FOR YOU!
If you want a smoker that is made with killer welds, LED lights, custom trailer, damper to the warmer, wireless probe, the list goes on and on. THIS IS THE SMOKER FOR YOU!

Great score, congratulations. I know the drive, I'm from Alabama, but I live in Las Vegas now. Where are you getting good wood splits here in the desert south west?
