After a two of weeks bothering Ultramag with PMs, researching the BDS forums, and emailing Rocky (owner of BDS Smokers) about 10 times, I finally bit the bullet and ordered one (difficult to buy something unseen and never seen one in action). Ordered the Deluxe BDS Model 2343 along with 25lbs of peach and black cherry chunks (have a Tel-Tru thermostate on the way) which arrived yesterday. But, cant use it until at least next wednesday due to my schedule. Just want to give Ultramag a big THANK YOU for recommending the BDS and putting up with the many, many pms I sent him. Looking forward to mastering it like he has. THX AGAIN! BTW- that's 12 bags of Rancher hardwood charcoal I got at Homy D (as recommended by bbq bubba). $3 for 20lbs.
