Default He made me a deal I couldn't refuse - and I refused it.

I was at Sip and Swine this weekend and stopped by the Primo booth. The guy there had some loose screws on an Extra Large Primo and I tightened them for him with my multitool. I commented that I would love to have one but couldn't afford it and he offered me their demo that was new when the competition started for $1100. It had all the options and the total cost of everything new was over $2000. My buddy said I should do it but I remembered my pledge to my wife not to buy any more smokers and walked away. No regrets. I'm 66 and finally growing up! Wouldn't have happened 5 years ago.

Growing up is overrated. I would discourage it.

You should have bought it and given it to the wife so she could have her own smoker. This strategy works... I bought Mrs. ~t~ a 75th Anniversary worm drive Skilsaw one year for Christmas... she opened it, said thanks, and told me I could use it anytime I wanted.

That's funny. I bought my wife an ironing board for her birthday once and said said the same thing.

I talked for a while with a guy from Marietta who was cooking in his second comp. Was that you? There were two of us and I had a Cabela's hat and sunglasses on.

That was a deal but I too am getting older and happy with my current toys. Can relate to your reasoning.
