Pros: the size, easy to control heat, well constucted
Cons: not having two of them
I had a smaller GOSM and I needed more room for more meat and things. So I bought one on sale at Gander Mtn for 249.00. It's built vert sturdy and well made all the parts fit together snuggly and tight. Then it is very easy to light and maintain heat at any temp from maybe 110° to 340-350° with no problem. Some folks say that a gas smoker isn't the real thing but I guess they have never ate my smoked ribs or brisket. One thing that is really strange thing to find on a stock smoker is the tempiture gauge works the temp is right. That's the first time that has happened.
