Iowa SMF Newbie

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Definately a rookie smoker here. Located in Ankeny, IA, but orginally from Minnesota. Moved to more serious BBQ territory.

I currently own a Masterbuilt 7 in 1, but I'm in the market for something more substantial. I like what everyone has to say about the GOSM, but I'm 6'6" and would prefer a horizontal I could stand over. The GOSM seems so low to the ground. My ideal find would be a horizontal combination gas grill will side gas smoke box. From what I see, I'd have to make my own using a conversion kit.

Well, nice to meet everyone. Looking forward to a summer filled with some good BBQ!

Welcome aboard HawkeyeSmoker................You might want to looking to the Char-griller Duo............Its a gas grill and a charcoal horizontal grill/smoker and you can add the side fire box to the charcoal side of the unit..............Not sure the price.........I know Pigcicles has one.....you could ask him about it if your interested in it.....I just bought Char-grillers new gas Grillin' Pro and that you can also add the sfb to it and smoke using charcoal................

Welcome aboard and glad to have ya! My GOSM is a bit close to the ground for my liken as well, I'm goin to build a platform for it to sit on (If the weather would be so kind as to cooperate a little) so it is easier to use. Very good unit in my opinion. Good luck in your search!

Re: Char-griller Duo

A guy at work bought the Char-griller Duo, but I think he plans to mostly grill on it. I took a look at one at Menards, but I was a little uneasy about the construction. The price is great! I'd be interested in hearing anyone's opinion on that model. I realize it's a new model, so it's possible there aren't many out there yet.
