Well just put in a order at Walmart for the GOSM Big Block. I am waiting for that email that says......your order has come in and is ready for pickup!!!
funny, I have been cooking ribs via oven and grill and wife saw on food network some ribs with some slow cooked meat and she said it looked good. So she gave me the go ahead to get one. I was holding out because I am thinking of relocating outside of california and didn't want another toy to trek along with me.
well got the email yesterday that the smoker is ready for pickup.....I am going to pick it up this evening. I read all these forums about seasing in it first so if anyone has any advice on the best ways to do it let me know.
I think the first thing I am going to try is Dutch's Sausage stuffed Pork Lion. I have always wanted to taste that and never done one yet.....hopefully there is time this weekend to try it.
