Just wanted to say Hi and thanks for letting me in. Hope to learn a lot about my smoker I picked up this morning. I got very lucky and ended up with best. I was looking at yoder due to the cost but a seller backed out on me. Well living down here in Florida I was kind of glad he did because I started to worry about rust. Well two weeks later I get very lucky and find a 2nd gen 2 star general 10 miles from my house. Has the 3/4 upper shelf and cover. Was able to grab it for $1600. So now my new addiction can run on for years.
