Was in the kitchen having a late lunch today (working from home, can't imagine why) and here comes the big truck, threading its way between the parked cars.

Yep, definitely stopping here.

Sparky's driver was way more theatrical...(sign not withstanding)

Yep, a real ball of fire...Hey looks like I'm getting #385!

So that's it, still in box, had a conference call in 5 minutes, I've been stuck there ever since....stay tuned, more to come! :cool:

Whoo hoo! How long did it take to get once you clicked buy? Just curious! Congrats! Too bad the driver won't stick around to help put it together hahaha.

So, finally have time to take off the lid...everything is very nicely packed!

Check this out..that's the underside of the carton lid with foam taped on to protect the top of the MAK2...nice touch.

Home entertainment kit...protecting the top of the grill is one thing, see the foam on the carton bottom? (still attached to the pallet) That is there to protect the bottom of the grill. Way to go Bob!

Legs are on...(earlier I was checking packing list against contents and couldn't find the castor wrench...turns out they now come already attached to the legs!

All assembled. The 2 Star General name is apt, this is one solid piece of engineering and construction...Well Done Bob!

Time to fire her up, I'm one happy camper! Thanks Bob, BP, and all of the team members behind both your companies!

First cook? Probably something lame like hamburgers for the kids! (gotta test out the searing zone!) But that will be tomorrow at the earliest.

Sure is, thanks for all the great comments!
Nice job on the assembly, we do have a revision in place to remove the caster wrench from the list on the next printing :)
Have fun!
