    Holy Crap!!! I herded up some BBQ items and then proceeded to add a few items of pure Canadiana. I gotta stop. Im already up to $93 and I have a couple more things I want to add yet. Somebody is gonna like Canada after this.

    @hondabbq‌ - Join the club :) wait until you see the shipping price. I purchased a box but it is too small and the local post office is out of stock on bigger boxes. I'll try to find another one tomorrow. 13 pounds of stuff is not cheap to ship to the US.

    The weight adds up pretty quick and is crazy expensive.  The first one I sent last time was 22lbs.  The 2nd was 30.  

    I hope the guy that jacked the first one enjoyed his too.  


    Most of what I will be sending is dry rubs so not too heavy. I have 2 bigger bottles of bbq sauce that are giving me headaches because of the standard size boxes. I am playing tetris trying to fit everything but I think I'll need to upgrade the box size.

    Mine will ship on Tuesday as well. I'm headed to the country with the family and the trailer this weekend. There is a really cool country store out there and I have an item or two to pick up there.

    That's fine.

    For all future shipping delays, send your draw a anonymous message through elfster if shipping is running late. Avoid attaching tracking numbers right now too please. Trying to keep all a mystery for now.

    Thanks everyone!!

  • cazzy said: I just want to reiterate that the above is not a requirement folks. You should feel very comfortable giving the minimum.  If you decide to give more for whatever reason, then that's really cool too.  This is not a competition, but your approach should probably lean towards the mentality of "what would I like to receive".  

    @cazzy cost wasn't the issue, there were just so many local rubs/sauces I wanted to share. Individually none of them are heavy but in one box, different story. I hope my draw will enjoy the variety. It was definitely fun trying to find different stuff for someone to enjoy...

    I feel so darn stupid asking this but I just have to, I've had a wild few days with little sleep and want to make sure I'm not nuts:

    The person I drew to send toys to is not the same person who will be sending me presents? That is why I get anonymous questions about my preferences?

    That is correct. Your draw likely didn't pick your name. It's possible, but "the odds are never in our favor". Yes...that's why it's annoymous.

    So "toys" huh? =))

    Thanks.

    I will be sure to keep items from the shoebox of "toys" in the closet from accidently getting included in the box of goodies getting shipped........

  • @cazzy are we supposed to send a message to the recipient when we ship? I sent one telling him when I was going to ship. I'm going to try Monday instead of Tuesday as now the locker is now saying my 1/2 buffalo will be ready to pick up

    Just include a note inside your care package. Monday or Tuesday is fine.

  • @cazzy - so the setup is not just pairs exchanging w/ each other? The person is not the same person that is sending me stuff, right? Not that I care, but that would take some of the surprise out.

    Thanks again for setting this this up.

    That's correct. It's highly unlikely that your draw is also your Elf. It's all random.

    I bought all my stuff at several different places over several different days and tossed all receipts. Then shipping was almost $25. Hell even I don't know how much I spent.
