Congrats..... Now go make your first (of many) changes and upgrade to a (minimum) 14" shelf. You'll be wishing you did when the sheet pan - full of meat - falls on the ground.

Oh yeah.... and post up some pics.

big demand for them dudes

If I had the green light I would have to go LoneStargrillz, not only for price but no way I could wait that long

with that said, never heard of anyone regretting the wait, once it was done....only regrets are folks getting a 20" instead of a 24" diameter, too small a shelf, etc., etc.......

It's rough :banghead: , but VERY much worth the wait! I have a 12" shelf on both sides, which is the very minimum I would recommend. I was limited by the width of the trailer, but it works just fine. I'm thankful for the extra shelf in the back to work on for sure. :D Congrats again on your order, Ripper! :tup:
