I hope you have another smoker. I'm only having to wait 3 months for mine to be built and I'm going nuts.

I recently went from an OK Highland to a Shirley 24x36 and love it. You went way beyond me.
Mine is very easy run and I’m sure yours will be too. Once you have a coal bed, seldom need to add more than one small split to keep the temps steady.

If that is a straight back model it is gonna have a ton of capacity. My 24x55 is way too big for what I cook. I should have gone with a smaller one. You'll love everything about your Shirley!

Iv got a 24x42 reverse flow with the squared off cook chamber. The build quality is great and it Cooks great. You are getting a beast of a cooker and I'm sure you will love it.

Luckily I found mine lightly used and didn't have to wait..couldn't imagine using the okj for 30 months while knowing that thing is coming :)
