Since the forum has been down, I haven't been able to update. My GOSM arrived several days ago. I got her all assembled, but still want to do some initial mods, all of which I have learned about here at SMF. Mods I will definitly be doing: locking casters or a wheeled cart of some kind, a better thermometer than the factory model, and probably a bigger wood/smoke box (coffee can or cake pan of some kind). I plan to do my first smoke in it this weekend, and then decide if I need other mods, such as insulating it with something like Hardy backerboard. I'm not great with the wife's digital camera, but I plan to try posting some pics. This forum has been a great source of ideas. Thanks for all the info.
