New WSM & DigiQ DX arrive in North Pole Alaska!

Greetings from North Pole Alaska, all,
Well, since nobody in the interior of Alaska carries the WSM, unless I take a chance and hope the Home Depot might get in a couple, they do every 3 years or so, or I drive 400 miles to Los Anchorage, I decided to bite the bullet, so to speak, and order one. Now, for all you folks that gag over paying 10 bucks to ship something....it cost 91 bucks to priority mail it from Minnesota to Alaska. No one other then the company that hooked me up would even bother trying to ship it up here, if I didnt want to pay the 200 bucks UPS wanted for their "ground" service to Alaska. What a joke. Anyways, thats the price I pay to live on the edge of the frontier. Anywho, the WSM showed up, in undamaged shape, mind you, yesterday, along with my order from BBQ guru. And to top it off, my pancake holster for my Ruger Alaskan 454 Casull showed up as well. All these goodies in one day!. Since this sunday is my 50th birthday, I splurged, and got all these goodies. I have a whole brisket in the beer fridge, which will be my first low and slow ever. Yeah, I know, start small. Well, the wife said the hell with that, lets do a whole brisket!.
So, this weekend, sub 0 temps not withstanding, I will attempt an overnight brisket cook. Alot of firsts. First time ill be 50 as well . Unless I made it to that age back when I was a viking...i cant remember anymore, dratted former lives.
I will let you all know on here how it goes, so you can have a chuckle at the 50 yr old BBQ noob going full bore where angels fear to tread.
Thanks to the virtual Bullet site for oh so much information. As well as Greg and the radio show, and this site, of course.
I bid you all a great day!

Happy Birthday to You, Medo! Sounds like you treated yourself right. Really looking forward to the pics of your first cook!!!

There's nothing like that smell of smoke when it's so cold outside! And once that brisket gets to going you'll think there's nothing better!

Enjoy your first cook!
