First test run of the GOSM

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My 30th birthday is coming up weekend after next, and my wife has invited 15 people already to come over to the house (supposed to have been a surprise). Plan is (so says the wife) to smoke meat for everyone with my new GOSM. So I had better get started practicing! Didn't have much time, so grabbed some wings on the way home. Here are the preliminary pics. Smoking with apple chips (since that's what I have on hand).

My wife already ate, so she'll get to sample one and the rest are for me! There are already a ton of things I know I could improve for next time (having the smoker up to temp before putting the meat in, having chunks instead of a VERY small handfull of chips, etc.) I still need to do practice ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and salmon before 2 weeks from now. Too much to do! Pics of the finished wings to come shortly.

Congrats on the new GOSM packrat. You're starting to sound like Chris Harper when he started. I think he smoked everything he could fit in the smoker... I think maybe his neighborhood is missing some cats, dogs, and a couple of elderly people... not sure.

Keep posting those glamour shots of your food... we love it

Keep Smokin

Packrat -

It's pretty typical on you first smoke to get so excited you forget a few things (like starting the smoker first) it'll be more natural the next time. They do look good though!

Here are a few pics of the finished product. I know for a fact that I put too much rub on them, and my temperature control was pretty poor. I figured, though, that since I usually just bake my wings with some rub on them, they'd be better on the smoker no matter what temp I cooked them at (slightly lower temps, plus some smoke). Result? Fairly good, but I know that I can do better. The wife thought they were good, so I guess that's what's important.

Those look pretty good. I have a GOSM also, and you will find the learning curve to be a very small one. It is a very decent smoker. I couldn't even tell you how many butts and ribs I've done on it. Keep plugging away. Once you cross over to the dark side, there is no going back.

looks good - it's like all things, practice makes perfect & burn more if it don't... i have no clue about gas or electric smokers - but it will come
