Ordered my #1
« on: June 04, 2018, 08:49:16 AM »
Well I ordered my #1 this morning, hope I did it right. After sitting on the fence for 2 months thought I better get it done before the Tarriff's make it to costly.

Was trying to save up for a #2 but exchange on $$$ and duty and Tariff's this is all ready above what I thought I could afford.  The wife may have me sleeping with the #1 once she see's the bill.

Congrats Hank and welcome to the family!  Just nail a brisket (easy to do) and your wife will approve...  assuming she's not vegan.  :)  And don't sweat it that you got the #1 instead of #2...  it's a nice to have and definitely not a have to have.

That's a little hobby project I put together and manually maintain.  Just give me enough info to locate you (your town is fine, not home address) on Google maps and I'll get it added.

The trip was great, the US boarder man was more interested in the smoker than any thing. His Dad has a Bradley and he wants a smoker asked me lots and then wrote the name Smokin-it down.  On the way back Canada wanted $74.25 for me to give them. :( :(

All I know is that every one that lives in the US gets a great deal... My #1 with a cover, extra self and 2 Tee shirts cost me $706.98 Canadian....  I better be able to do some awesome smoking or else I will be sleeping in the garage beside my smoker.   On the plus side on the way home bought the wife some flowers for the garden she wanted ;) ;)

Pay once Cry once  I hope..

I was expecting that price, it just hurts :( so that is one of the reasons for a #1 and not a 2.  Building a cabinet for it now, have to season and try out on the weekend. ;) ;)
