Re: Where to buy GOSM big block
Yes I do have it vented
It was rather an intolerable situation straight out of the box. Not only was there no way out for the smoke the thing was a steam cabinet also. Water would drip out the bottom somehow because there was no place else for it to go. If you opened the door for a peek it was like a very dark thunderstorm going on in there. Had a couple of miserable failures before deciding to mod it up or throw it away.

Use very little wood to get all the smoke flavor we want. I have lots of apple wood (Dad's got an orchard) and make my own chips. On pork 25% of the chips I use are store bought hickory and that works well for me. Less than a quart of this combination of wood will do a couple of butts!Jeffmkr
has moded his Masterbuilt similar to mine and he reports better results also.
It can be difficult to discern whether the vent is giving off steam or smoke but I have learned how to tell the difference.
