Should read contiguous if you want to get technical. Anyways, I'll just buy locally as I won't get clipped for ridiculous shipping charges. I'm looking forward to giving the smoker a good workout. I have two large freezers filled with moose, salmon, and halibut that will be fun to work and experiment with.
I didn't know that Todd Johnson was selling his smokers through retail outlets. That's so cool. As I've written, Todd is such a nice guy that I just order from his website when I need new supplies. For example, I've decided to buy a 2nd Maverick ET-733 and when I'm ready I'll order it through him. I buy all my wood pellets from him as well.
I guess Todd specifies free shipping within continental US only because it's all ground shipping. With Alaska it'd have to be shipped via air freight and then transferred to a UPS or FedEx distribution center to be loaded onto a truck to be delivered to you. That's got to be more costly. But continental US has always meant just the contiguous 48 states.
You've got to post some Qview of the moose and squirrel--sorry, moose and halibut because I've never seen photos of those being smoked. Gotta see what that moose meat looks like before and after.
