Newbie from New York

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to say hello. I have been lurking on the site for the past couple of weeks reading up on gas smokers. After two weeks of research I went out tonight and got a GOSM. I would of liked to get the block but the only way was to order it and get it delivered which would add $100 to the cost. I settled on the 20x14.

Thank you all for the great information. I am sure I will be on here a lot now that I have found this site.

I have very little smoke experience. I used a kettle one a couple times years ago to make venison jerky. It was good but I was young then and had no time and did not cook much at all. Also my grandfather used to smoke a lot of fish. Sturgeon, salmon, bullhead come to mind and it was great.

I cook a lot now and grill an awful lot. I grill year around even if I have to shovel several feet of snow to do so. I live up in the snowbelt of NY. I am looking forward to getting bsuy smoking! I will be seasoning it tomorrow and then there are ribs in the fridge!! Also got a big london broil in there but not sure how to do that.

Welcome from another New Yorker. I live in the Adirondacks. I was able to smoke with my GOSM for all but about 5 week in the coldest part of the winter. See this thread about smokin' in the snow


Hope you enjoy the forum.

Take care, have fun, and do good!

1st welcome to SMFicon_exclaim.gif

2nd I want to quote & say ditto to so many I'll just list a couple

I love your avitar, The only way to stand the smell & look is to time a couple fattys to munch while smoking or to just wait & get more hyped up so it tastes better when you can finally eat it.
