    Assuming that you have checked for a restriction in the gas line, a spider web in the orifice or venturi, you might try Landman USA, they took over GOSM, I also saw somewhere that a fellow Q'er that lived not far from an old GOSM plant had some burners to sell, might try a search for GOSM burners, ...when I bought my GOSM from the ACE Hardware I asked about replacement parts, they said it wouldn't be a problem, they order from Ace Hardware in Carson CA (310) 603 2800, might try them.

    Hope this helps,

    Man, your options are nearly endless, depending on where you want to go. Are you looking for a drop-in replacement, or something smaller or something larger?

    For myself, having just recently purchased a GOSM, I think that I would like a smaller burner for the things I will use the smoker for (beef jerky, salmon, and ribs.) If it were me standing in your shoes, I would buy a single burner camp stove, or even an electric hot plate, to replace my burner, but then again I smoke small quantities and tend to favor lower and slower cooking times. If you customarily smoke large quantities, or smoke at higher temps, your needs are much different, and you might want to consider adapting a turkey fryer burner. Or not. It's all up to you.

    This doesn't even consider using your GOSM with charcoal...a guy could buy a stainless steel mixing bowl (or use the water pan from the GOSM, if he was so inclined) from the local supermart that would sit in the bottom and use the Minion Method (did I spell that right?) for the low and slow that we all crave...you might end up having to punch some holes in the pan for air flow, but only by trying it will you know...

    View this as an exciting opportunity to rehabilitate or perhaps improve your GOSM and dial it in to what you need! Read, ask questions, read some more...or, just go for the drop-in replacement, if that is what suits your needs and ability. Again, it's your call.

    The people around this place are more than willing to lend advice. All you have to do is ask!

    I saw a mod GOSM that I'm doing if mine dies. A side fire box. Looked sweet. It wasa on this site somewhere.

    well, i just ended up pickingup a Perfect Flame from lowes on clearance. $119 w/ the really heavyduty cast iron chip pan. thanks for all input. I am going to mod. the GOSM to get it work (it was always a little to small so i was looking for an excuse to by a little bigger) and take up to my bro's cabin. it will get used 1-2 a year. good enough.

    I could only hope that my burner goes out so I can go buy that new smoke vault I want so bad. The wife says go for it but I'm the one dragging my feet.

    Pick up a single burner propane stove from Northern Tool. I converted my Charcoal GOSM that way, feeding the gas line thru the lower vent. Works really well and gives me some high heat when needed.
