Well I loaded up the PG500 and my SM025 in the back of the truck and headed north to Redding California for a family rebellion. Upon arrival and unloading I noticed the hinge to the PG500 door was no longer attached to the door. Still attached though to the unit. It appears the spot weld busted loose cleanly from the door. Not to worry though as the doors still shut just fine. Wonder what my fix will be. I don't weld. And I don't know anybody who does. I guess I would either have someone come over or take the whole unit to someone.
Here is what we BBQ'd on vacation. I was a huge hit. Even though they were family and love them dearly, they made my head very big with compliments. Of course I praised Cookshack and think I even sold a few units.
12 racks of St. Louis cut Ribs (6 in each unit)
The units traveled well and performed flawlessly. They are safely home and back in their spots on the back porch. Fired them both up and everything is right in my world...well except for that hinge.
