    Went up to Bass Pro today and picked up my new smoker. A Horizon Ranger. Waited for a month for the guy to bring the Yoder. Just got tired of his excuses. So here it is.

    Already have a couple of mods in mind for it and have ordered a couple of things for it like the convection plate and another thermometer for the vertical section. Now to get it seasoned and get some meat on it. I can't wait. Thanks for looking.

    Congrats on the new smoker. Sure is a beauty.
    How many times have you hugged her today?
    Even now I bet you have a nice grin on your face with such a great new toy.
    Wish I had a Bass Pro, or Wally World, or Cabela's around here.

    Hey...Congratulations to you on your new Smoker! I wonder how long will it be before your neighbor in the next yard with the Kettle decides to join the fun too? [​IMG]

    Very nice, what size is it? One thing I would do is to check the therm that comes with the Horizon. Mine, I went through 4 of them, were all off by a large margin. I finally ordered a couple of Tru-Tels and am very happy with them.

    You will definitely love that rig once ya get used to it. They are very well made.

    That is really cool. Looks like it is built to last several lifetimes. How hard is it to move around looks HEAVY.

    If I had a wife, do you think she would let me buy a toy like that? [​IMG]

    Hang in there Thomas, I'll get you some.

    And therein lies the problem: A wife wouldn't let you get that, but without a wife and family how often can you make real use of it?! Use it once, fill the freezer... and you wouldn't be using it again for a month and a half.

    And if you're only smoking a chicken for tonight's dinner, of course, you're wasting all that capacity.
    Nonetheless it's an awesome lookin' rig. Enjoy!!
