Who pulled the trigger?

Who else pulled the trigger on the new XXL? Getting mine in 2-4 months is what I was told to get in but deposit placed.

    Yea I have also pulled the trigger on two XXL, also traded in the 35' Motor Home for a new 45' diesel pusher and a new custom built trailer to install the XXL in as I can't imagine traveling without the New XXL. Waiting on pricing for a custom paint job for Motor Home and trailer. =D>

    New ways to load lump for XXL? Which brings to mind how many bags would one need to have at home to feel comfortable. I have a LBGE and will normally have at least 100# on hand. Maybe BGE has a pallet jack available for XXL lump supplies. >:) JK

    Congrats. Are you using it for business or personal use?

    @badinfluence‌ :-? Which brings up a interesting question. Table or nest? I'm thinking you would need I beams for structural support in a table. Lol. It's a beast for sure.

    My local dealer said the delivery time was much shorter than 2-4 months.  What part of the country are you in?

    Not a large family, but do like to do large cooks at one time. never know if i need multiple temps for what I'm doing that day. (ex. bread at 400, meat at 225....) the meat monster was bought to do comp cooks as i have yet found a good way to bring the eggs to a cook but really still learning on the MM.
