WEll, about 14 years ago, Mrs Bear & I took out a loan to help our Son start a business. Then she quit her Job, and I closed my Cabinet Shop to help him in his Tower Business. Now he is CEO of his own Tower Corporation with 14 on the payroll. Mrs Bear still does all his Office stuff (payroll, insurances, permits, etc, etc). So he can buy us anything he wants to buy us.

BTW: He paid us back in less than 6 months.

Sweet unit Bear , you know it's funny how our better half never seem to have a sense of humor when it comes to keeping something that important in our house . Go figure

I might have to make a trip to Cabela's here in Canada and see what they want for that unit

As I figured , Cabela's in Barrie Ontario doesn't carry that model at this time and for me to have one shipped from Masterbuilt direct , by the time it gets to me I would be afraid to use it because of the cost.   lol

It's obvious Bear and Mrs. Bear have a great son  (Raised him right)  As a parent the feeling of seeing your kids do well, and mature into good people is an awful good feeling.

Bear could you tell me where you got the stacker boxes that your smoker is sitting on?

Sure!!

 

When I first started Chainsaw Carving Bears (See Below), I made 4 of those boxes out of Pressure Treated 2 X 12s and 3/4" CDX. My back couldn't take a lot of bending, so when I carved small Bears I would stack those boxes to whatever height was comfortable, and put the Bear on top. The boxes are 12" X 24" X 24".

 

This was before my Son said if I did the carving at his shop, I could carve right off a pallet on his Fork Lift. Boy was that nice----I could raise or lower the forks to carve different areas of the Bears. Saved a lot of wear & tear on the old back.

 

Then when I got my smoker I just repurposed two of the boxes to give me perfect height for my MES.

 
And assorted Bears

OK---Thanks!!

 

I was just wondering how your chances of getting the one you want by driving to a US store??

 

Maybe when you're going anyway for some other reason, as a second bird with one stone??

 

And Congrats on your 42nd (Newlyweds).
