The long awaited day finally arrived last Friday. It is hard to say how excited I have been and even after it has arrived and getting to know my Red Dragon has made me all the more impressed. Without further ado, here are the pictures of my first few days with my new Dragon!

UPS guy making sure this is the place!

Image

Backing up the driveway!

Image

Last box on the truck!

Image

UPS Guy ended up needing my help to push it out to the lift gate, even with the pallet jack he couldn't get it maneuvered.

Image

Up we go!

Image

Got it to the edge of the truck, barely fit on the lift... was pretty scary actually.

Image

Is it big enough????

Image

This is where it got really scary... it was so heavy it started to tilt the lift, so we were holding it back from falling off!!!

Image
Image
Image

Image

Could NOT get the pallet jack turned around so we had to take it BACK UP!!!
Image

Kids scrambled up on top of the crate:

Image

A note from someone at the shop:

Image

Massive understatements lol:

Image

Top of crate off and check out the diamond plate! THE RED DRAGON COMES TO LIFE!

Image
Image

Sides coming off..
Image
Image
Image

BEHOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Image

Stump Tough... that's three of my kids on a rack....probably around 190 lbs....sweet!
Image

I love this pic.... that is some smoke stack! :D
Image

Gitty up!
Image

First Lean...
Image

So how do the casters???
Image

Good friend from church helped me put on the casters... Jacked up both sides of the 1,200 lb XL and rested it on 4x4 posts across jack stands.
Image
Image

In the daylight!
Image

Glamor Shot!!!!!
Image

Starting the seasoning process
Image
Image

Ok so I know I'm going to take some flak for this but I didn't have any meat prepped and supper was approaching so I put pizzas and some wings in the XL. I figured I could do 30 pizzas in the XL Stretch LOL!!!
Image
Image

Cyber Q in action!
Image

The crust was crispy without getting burnt and it was a big hit:
Image

Wings were so awesome, crispy skin, juicy on the inside, and my anchovy pizza rocked.
Image


Can't wait to smoke real meat this Friday!!!
