Just ordered a XL Baby! I'm in the same boat as the others I have read about on here who were in the waiting mode! Like a kid at Thanksgiving waiting for Xmas. But it's more like waiting from Labor Day to Xmas! I have been using a BGE Large for 13 Yrs. and tired of everything stacked on top each other. This forum is good and bad, it the makes the wait seem endless but it's great for learning about my new toy and already planing my first dozen cooks! Already spotted people in my neck of the woods.

Welcome to the nation Bob. Glad to have you aboard. I know all about the wait. It seemed like a year, but it was worth the wait. You will have so much fun when she arrives. Look forward to seeing some great pictures.

Eric

I was like a kid in a candy store when my XL Baby showed. I couldn't wait for the truck driver to leave so I could get started. It is for sure at least a 2 man job to get the wheels on. Make sure you are ready when the time comes with charcoal, spray oil and rags and a vacuum to clean her out.

hey bob,

welcome to the nation. i dont know what you were cooking on before, but i guarantee that cooker will FAR EXCEED your expectations. ive cooked on a lang & wsm but these stumps are something else.

they are like potato chips though. once you have one, you'll want another. :D

I'm ready for this seasonng part of the stumps smoker! I have my rags and small shop vac ready waiting to clean her out and wipe it down in the oil. I hope they're not like potato chips once you have one you have to have another my wife would just have another reason to kick me out!

Looks like you are well on the way to achieving that goal! My immediate goal is to try to be as patient as possible as an adult can, but reading here does make you feel like a kid waiting on his first bike!

Congratulations on the purchase and welcome to the forum.

Now's the time to ask any questions you may have. It makes the time go faster too.
