Hello from the SC low country..

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My name is Billy Hoke and I am 78 year old. Been lurking here for a while and soaking up all the good info. Always wanted to smoke like my uncle did back in PA. Real smoke house adjacent to the kitchen. As a kid he would let me look inside. At first i thought I would build one but gave that up. Finally took the leap and bought a GOSM Big Block. Got ready to fire it up and found that the tank connection leaked really bad. No way I could stop it. I knew they had regulator problems and had gone bankrupt. I called them anyway. Got the message that they would not honor Warranty. Called BassPro where I got it. They are sending me a replacement???. Will just have to see what it is when it gets here.

A few days ago some one had a fire on their porch from one of these. I have no doubt that his was also defective. When I was thinking about building one, I bought one of their smaller heating units with hose and control on eBay. So I tried it and it was also defective. Tried both on two different tanks. BUMMER
