Definately a rookie smoker here. Located in Ankeny, IA, but orginally from Minnesota. Moved to more serious BBQ territory. I currently own a Masterbuilt 7 in 1, but I'm in the market for something more substantial. I like what everyone has to say about the GOSM, but I'm 6'6" and would prefer a horizontal I could stand over. The GOSM seems so low to the ground. My ideal find would be a horizontal combination gas grill will side gas smoke box. From what I see, I'd have to make my own using a conversion kit. Well, nice to meet everyone. Looking forward to a summer filled with some good BBQ!
