I had used a Bradley for the last 4 years and wanted to upgrade to something large and a little more "power". Did my first some today with my GOSM propane smoker. Had some trouble with controlling the temperature. It was all over the place. It seemed the slightest adjustment to the burner and it would swing wildly in that direction. Got it to sit at 225 for an hour or so at the most. I have seen some people talking about a needle valve mods. Probably going to do that, but any other basic tips/suggestions for my propane smoker? I'm really curious how to use the vents a bit more. Had the top vent wide open and closed the side vents most of the way. I thought if I had opened them more it would add more oxygen and therefore add more heat. Got a decent smoke ring, but it didn't seem consistent throughout the ribs.
I used the tried and trusted 3-2-1 method with my own rub and sauce recipes.
Anyways, everything tasted great and my wife's family really enjoyed themselves! Also, made a few neighbors happy people since they had to smell it all day long. Can't wait to take my experience up a few notches!!
