Anyone know of anyone that has this unit? It doesnt look bad, but before I buy it I would like some opinions. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...keyword=smoker

Thanks

Never seen one but you could buy a GOSM widebody from Walmart for that or less and get a proven smoker. Just my thoughts

Interesting..... I think if they put the "Craftsman" stamp on it, it would sell like hot cakes !!!

Looks and reads like a decent unit, never seen one or used one. So, guess I wasn't alot of help. I've got a GOSM and really like it.

Southern Ca Walmart

SoCal Walmart doesnt carry them. I would have to mail order, and that raises the price quite a bit. Any other suggestions are appreciated.

I kind of thought that it looked a bit like a GOSM.

Maybe made by them? or a knock off. If anyone knows how to get a hold of the makers of the GOSM I'll call 'em and find out. I spent quite a bit of time trying to find thier cotact information but with no success.

Thanks for your input.

I went and looked at that one back in Feb. before I bought my MES. Similar to Walmart's GOSM but more money. I would do as Kookie suggested and have the GOSM shipped to your local store (free shipping to store) and pick it up.

Use the wal mart ship to your store for free option.

Check out these two. They are the same unit just diferent sizes

Kenmore/GOSM

I have that unit it works great.(See pictures on the pork forum "Saturday was smok'en"). I wanted to look at them before I bought one. Wal-Mart did not have any in stock at the time and Sears did. I would have to say they are both made by GOSM. I looked at them at Wal-Mart Saturday they are on sale for $99.00. There are only two differences. One is the door latch Kenmore uses magnets and the GOSM has a 1/4 turn style latch and the GOSM has the closeable dampers and the Kenmore has a chimney style. The burner,wood box,water pan and food grates are all the same, I got my Kenmore on sale for $139.00. I bought from Sears because I have never had an issue with returning things if they are not right. I has the words Satisfaction Guaranteed or you money back above the door to there store and if I had to I would drag the manager out there and read it to him/her.
Happy Smok'en!!!!

Pretty much looks like a GOSM clone. If you can I'd go with the GOSM big block for the extra grate room but the Kenmore would probably serve you fine.

What he said

I second that!!!!!!!!! I would also add the door gasket. You can find that post in the mod's tread(I think)

ok shifting gears a little

I need to find a smoker that runs on natural gas. I have always used natural gas for grilling, and I think I like the idea of having an unlimited supply of fuel any iput on a nat gas smoker would be appreciated.

Thanks Patohunter

Ok I figured it out...(made a decision)probably havent figured it out

After much research and some ciphering, I decided that I didnt want to abandon the really nice stainless brinkman (not an ECB but an expensive EECB- $179.00) that I got for Christmas last year.
The main problem it had was the heating element sucked.

I decided to go with an afterburner, conversion to natural gas. I have a stub for my grill in the DOCA (designated outdoor cooking area ((for you acronym lovers)) that I will use to power my unit.

Thanks for the help, Ill let you all know how it works out.

Check out this GOSM look-a-like. I looked at it in person...the things I really liked are the latch, holds the door nice and tight, the handle on the sides look a little sturdier, and it has electronic ignition...just thought I'd share it along the sears (kenmore) look-a-like.
