    Congrats!!! Naming....Well take it from John Doe....Smoker Doe....or how about Doe Smoker!!! [​IMG]

    Rots of Ruck with it!! I'm sure you'll learn fire control quickly. Can't wait to hear about your first smoke. So how much can it hold at one time?

    Since we already have a stick burner named after the great southern general Robert E Lee sitting down in Texas, it only seems fitting to have one named after the northern general Ullyses S Grant sitting up there in Michigan. You probably don't want to mention that at the Lang plant though, them Georgia boys had a little difficulty with the general if I recall[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Rodger that is a great Idea. How about it Bud and Theresa do we have a General Grant. One thing about it the north and south Generals can get together and smoke some butt or ribs or briskets or anything they want to do.

    That would be great. I think it is going to be somwhere downtown, I called today and they said the packet has been mailed so I should have it any time now and will let you know. If you want your own packet just call this number and they will send you one.

    BBQ Bubba is also planning on coming over, any help ya'll want to give would be appreciated. This will be a learning event for me, while I am going to throw my hat in the ring I'm more interested in getting my feet wet and enjoying the event,getting to know some folks and like I said, soak it all in and learn some things
    Speaking of leaning, one of the things that I am looking to find is a canopy/tent. The EZ Up Eclipse II appears to be the right solution. Sam's says they don't carry them any more. The EZ web site store is very pricy. Anyone know where to find them at a good price?


    LOL Roger! I'm thinking that might NOT be the way to go [​IMG] .
    But I sure could use some clever ideas. So far, this is what I've come up with: "Tonto's Tasty BBQ". The image in mind is a pig on a horse that is rearing up. This is where I am getting the graphics, I understand he is awesome. So come on folks, put those clever caps on and help me improve!!!

    Wow, that looks great Wild Cat!!! Love the swing out shelves, reminds me of Zardnock's Puff. Sounds like you got it figured out with the vertical grill, fryer, and a propane setup. Heck, you'll have a smoking kitchen on wheels!!! Keep us updated.[​IMG]

    Have read 100lbs of food easy and 120lbs max. I would think it depends alot on what your cooking and taking up space with, but I'm a fixing to find out.[​IMG]

    That sounds like it would be a great time. As long as the two General's didn't get bloody.[​IMG]

    Theresa the two generals would get along just fine as long as there was cold beer and maybe a little crown royal to boot Lol.

    Well, The time is finally here. We are leaving tommorow for the long drive down to Goergia to pick up the smoker. It just so happens that Nahunta Goergia is right in the middle of the horrible forest fires they have going on right now. Talked to Ben Lang on the phone today and he said there is alot of smoke in his area, but no evacuations yet.

    Sorry I haven't posted much lately, things have just been a blur of activity with spring finally arriving in Michigan. Hope it will slow down soon.

    As Meowey says " Take care, Have Fun, and Do Good!!!"
