    Congrats!!! Better if you'd paid for it and had her agree to buy the toys to go with it...

    Congrats!!!!  If the dealer won't deliver I'd probably have a buddy or two help with moving it but that's just me. 
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    Haha I have most toys I need.. I should have clarified I have owned a medium since February and I have wanted to expand.. I couldn't pass up 30% off today.

    My 250lb friend has agreed to help! No way I was moving that beast solo.

    Congrats! I unloaded my XL by myself, had to take the dome off and reassemble, but I got it done.

    Congrats dude, it is a great tool and I'm sure you'll dig it. I'd be curious to hear what you think of the XL in comparison to the medium. 

    It's been another tough year for the Raiders, but at least that's all over now. They really are close to getting things back on track, just need a few good picks and a little better luck with injuries. C2E!

    Finally back in the Badger State!

    Well, I have been gainfully employed since the end of April and with a 3rd baby on the way I just figured one day BBQ space would be needed!

    I'm guessing for everyday cooks I will use my medium most of the time, for now, but bigger events I have the space.

    It's been rough being a raiders fan, I can see light at the end of the tunnel before I wasn't sure if the train was on the tracks.

    I hear ya dude, it's all the harder down here in SD. Enjoy the heck out of that XL, I bet you'll use it more than you think, always nice to have plenty of room for a direct and indirect zone.

    I picked up my XL off of Craigslist for $600 last month. I had to jump on the deal so I had no time to arrange assistance with the move. After removing the lid and moving it empty I can say that it was sweat free. Congrats!

    I started with the XL and just picked the medium. We reached the same place from the opposite directions and probably the same reasons. You will love the XL.
