Just wanted to chime in and say that, thanks to my wonderful wife, and a few other "sponsors", I have officially joined the ranks of happy Daniel Boone owners! I went with the non-WiFi version for now as I figured I can upgrade to it later if I want to. I took advantage of the Father's Day sale, and the local dealer had an "open house" going on as part of Marion, IA's "BBQ Fest" thingy. They had a Green Mountain rep there who was there with his trailer smoking all kinds of things, and they had a few of their own smokers going as well. Free samples to all! Fortunately, we got there in time to buy one they had already assembled and seasoned, I think there were only two of those left. They use a pound or so of GMGs Gold Blend to season it, and give you the remaining bag with the smoker. Free assembly, free delivery, and a free bag to start out with. The shop owner mistakenly gave us $100 off the DB, but realized his mistake before we got too excited about it... The DB I got has the stainless direct grill drip pan (but not the fire pot cover with holes) and it looks pretty slick - it's a two part system - two plates, each with holes, and the top one slides so you can line up the holes or shut them. They are both pretty hefty too. Interesting though that the sales guy suggested wrapping the bottom one with foil and putting the top one in storage. That's what I did first, but no foil and both pans worked just fine, even with the cover on the flame pot... I checked the temp with the Maverick I have, and the temps were within 10 degrees of each probe and the far right probe was about 20 degrees cooler than the set temp, but it's a variance I can live with for sure! Better than my COS with FAR less work. Thanks to all of you here who helped me make the jump from a COS Char Griller to a GMG Daniel Boone! It's pretty awesome!
