Stumps (Ohio State Edition) arrived today

What a day of frustration and joy. I called Roadway Express this morning to see what time the smoker would be delivered. They told me the hydraulic lift on the gate was broken and I'd have to wait until it was fixed, probably sometime next week. That was totally unacceptable so I took off work and my son and I rented a U-Haul trailer and picked it up. I'll have to say that Stumps did an excellent job in packing it. The toughest part was uncrating it and getting it off the trailer without scratching it but we did it just as it was getting dark. Took a few quick pictures under the gotcha lamp so that photo's would show up. Here are a few shots:

Uncrating the Beast!



Scarlet Side



Gray Side:



Scarlet and Gray:




Stainless Steel Trays:




Ashpan and Woodbox:



Buckeye Helmet:



I'll be cleaning and seasoning the smoker tomorrow. Will probably do a small cook. I'll post pics as things progress.

BTW Stumps made a Florida Gator version of the GF 223 earlier this year. It looked really nice!

Kloset,

Congratulations on the Stumps.

Yesterday a friend from another BBQ forum drove from North Carolina and picked his Stumps up (1000 miles round trip). He seasoned it today I believe.

I guess I should have been better this year!

Thanks everyone for the comments. Yes it is a GF 223. Griff, this one is a double walled insulated smoker. It will cook in any weather. Perfect for Alaskan and Cleveland winters!

I want to see the picture of the look of utter joy on your wife's face when you uncrated it! No doubt it was similar to the look on my wive's face when I came home with the 18" subwoofer cabinet for my amplifier "stack!"

I've got a standing rib roast in the refrigerator ready to go!

Just started seasoning the pit about an hour ago.
