We have to give them a jab every chance we can. Why didn't they just drive straight home, nonstop, fire it up and cook all night long.... that would be just like at a comp.... cool.gif

Burned her in today, what an absolute joy!!! We are extremley happy with the results...able to hold temps with ease first time out. Although the temp gauges on the cooker are way off, the trusty ET'S tell the true story. Can't wait to this weekends cook...will take pics.PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Gotta add that the propane torch (weed burner) from harbor freight is awesome....stood back and had those logs on fire in no time flat.... thinking Bud might have a little pyromania temtations, it was too funny to see the look in his eyes!!!biggrin.gif

"You Vill enjoy the smoker!!" Debi, I did feel like the Terminator....that weed burner deal really shoots some flame!

How's the vault smoker doing?

When are you and Jesse coming to visit?

post #28 of 65
Bud and Theresa wish I could be there with you for the maiden cook, hope everything comes out great and lets some some pictures.
post #29 of 65
I can see Bud cooking hotdogs at 20 feet! LOL

You be careful with that thing now!

Loving the Smoke Vault but out of room to store anything else. Wish I could do some visiting but I just started a new job about 6 weeks ago (THANK GOD) and won't be going to far for awhile. I was supposed to go to Illinois for a class in June but it may be canceled. Sure would like to see you christen that beast though!

I love the logo! Being of Scotch descent (or do I just like decent Scotch?), I can appreciate the kilts. Reminds me of a line from an old song...

"I wonder what Scotty's got under his kilt
A Lang, A Lang..."

Sorry, couldn't resist. redface.gif

Anyway, I wish I could get out that way for the event and meet you folks, but the weekend before, we'll be in Carlisle, PA for the All Chrysler Nationals... two weekends in a row = too much traveling and not enough vacation time. We will be deep frying turkeys for our car club feast however...

Good luck and have a great time!

ROFLMAO. PDT_Armataz_01_14.gif Good one Phil. Thanks, and when you visit with your sis make sure to give us a call.PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

BTW...what are the ALL Chysler Nationals??
post #37 of 65
The ACN is an all Chrysler product car show at the Carlisle Fairgrounds, held every year. Our car club meets there every year, we have a HUGE cookout and just simply have a blast.

I will certainly be in touch when we get out that way!
