Gonna Be A New Smoker This Weekend

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hi, Spence here from the sticks of western ny. I've been doing alot of reading on this site for awhile. Tons of great info here.

I have never smoked before but i have the itch to try it. After reading through the threads i thought i wanted to build a UDS. Then i started looking at the GOSM charcoal, then the brinkmann. Then i looked into the LP versions of those as well. I was going crazy trying to figure out what way to go. Well, supply and my need to smoke this weekend has made my decision. The only smoker i found within 100 miles that i can pickup tonight is the smoke hollow 34" propane. That is what i am going to start out with. I read about the temps being hard to keep low, and to call their cutomer service for replacement parts. So, i will do that next week.

Nat a bad price. I found a brand new unit for $129. Gonna season it tomorrow morning and try out a beer can chicken. We will see how that goes. I have a feeling this will become an addiction. Thanks in advance for the help i know i will recieve in the future from the fine folks here. smile.gif

I've always enjoyed grilling (can i say grill here or is that taboo lol) but the smoking sounds like something i could really get into.

Everywhere i went locally and asked about smokers they looked at me like i was crazy, then showed me some grills. PDT_Armataz_01_05.gif I finally found the Smoke Hollow at gander mountain and it is very similar to the GOSM and Brinkmann from what i can tell.

I'll get some pics of it up once it's assembled and seasoning. Then i will try to hone my unskills for the light blue smoke.

Grill isn't a dirty word around here, only oven-that one is a 4-letter word.
Congrats on the new smoker and good luck!
