Just wanted to say hello. I have been lurking on the site for the past couple of weeks reading up on gas smokers. After two weeks of research I went out tonight and got a GOSM. I would of liked to get the block but the only way was to order it and get it delivered which would add $100 to the cost. I settled on the 20x14. Thank you all for the great information. I am sure I will be on here a lot now that I have found this site. I have very little smoke experience. I used a kettle one a couple times years ago to make venison jerky. It was good but I was young then and had no time and did not cook much at all. Also my grandfather used to smoke a lot of fish. Sturgeon, salmon, bullhead come to mind and it was great. I cook a lot now and grill an awful lot. I grill year around even if I have to shovel several feet of snow to do so. I live up in the snowbelt of NY. I am looking forward to getting bsuy smoking! I will be seasoning it tomorrow and then there are ribs in the fridge!! Also got a big london broil in there but not sure how to do that.
