Got a fairly modified gosm, is a great unit an still use it, but alas, it's position as top dog was replaced by the drum smoker.
I still like it fer some things, an I've found at large events it works nice as a additional warmer to. Nice if I wanna do some pigs in a canoe an not fire up the drum, great fer meatloafs to.
Fer somebody what ain't all that handy, it's a perty good unit right outa the box an many a the mods can be done quite easily. I'd say if yer gettin started in smokin it be a good unit fer that. Turns out some mighty fine Q all on it's own.
