Very glad to say I have placed a order for a Stretch and have been reading all the posts for several weeks. What a great bunch of guys who are always willing to help with questions and provide outstanding information. I am looking forward when
I can fire up my Stumps and gain the knowledge that many of you have already obtained. I was avid about cooking BBQ until my son was KIA in Iraq August 2006. Lost interest in everything for a few years, but, this last year I started firing up my WMS again and realized how much I enjoyed smoke and bbq. So, my wonderful wife encouraged me to take a big step and order a stretch. Talked with Buster last week and placed the order. I am looking forward to being part of the Stumps Nation.

Jimmy

Jimbo,

My condolences to you and your family dealing with the loss of your son. The military and their families have my undivided respect. For what is done to protect our freedom. THANK YOU.


Let me be the first to welcome you to the great family of Stumps. You will not be disappointed when you fire that Stretch up. Please make yourself welcome to the forum and ask plenty of questions. It is a good time to get ready for your delivery, even though it is weeks away. Start writing down notes and answers to your questions. It makes it much easier once you fire it up for the first time. As I tell everyone, once you see your smoker arrive,it is a metal masterpiece, a real work of art. Well worth the waiting period.

Again, welcome aboard.
Mark

3x what others have said. Congrats on smoker. Sorry to hear about the son. I have two nephews serving now in the Marine. One has done 3x tour and one just returned this week and going back May. I pray daily for the men safety as they protect our freedom.

Hope your smoker brings you much enjoyment; and welcome to the board.

Garrett

Welcome to the forum Jimmy.
BBq is good medicine for the soul. I know it makes me feel good to cook.
Where are you located? Georgia?
I hope you can make it to the fest in December.
Mike

Thanks Mark, Buster, 13Q, Garrett, Mike and E. Stewart for the welcome and the kind words about my son. It means more to me than I can express with words. I just look forward to getting to know all of you better and gaining knowledge about cooking some great BBQ on my Stumps when I get it. Jimmy

Jimbo,

x10 what everyone else has said. Your son is a true hero as are you, your wife and family for enduring your son's sacrifice. As a military spouse, I will think of you, your family and your son everytime I watch my wife salute the flag and every time I hear the words "freedom" and "sacrifice."

I look forward to seeing your posts and watching you get back into the world of Smoke, Spice and Que. Welcome to the Stump nation-you have just purchased the best smoker you will ever cook on and have become a member of one of the best group of folks who grace this planet.

Jimbo,
1st, My condolences for your loss, your son is a true hero!
We lost a nephew in Al Anbar Province in November 2006.

Welcome to the stump nation, glad to hear that you are getting back in the saddle.

i only recently picked up my stretch (3 months ago?)
and really enjoy it, this is like no cooker you have ever used.
as stated in another post, i am still in awe of the capabilities of this thing.

it even makes my mistakes taste great :mrgreen:

Good luck
and god bless
