So I climbed up on the ledge, deliberated for a few weeks, then jumped! My Amerique 066 gets delivered tomorrow. I very excited and praying that the unit arrives undamaged and ready to do battle.
I have a very ambitious weekend of smoking scheduled so I'm certain I will check in from time to time for hand-holding, encouragement, tips, techniques, and ideas.
Many thanks to the guys who run this forum for helping me make what I think will be a momentous decision...
