OK, so they don't make the big one in the 2 drawer model.  That's too bad, I wonder why not.  I would think the larger size would justify the 2 drawers more than the smaller one.  Seems like they would want to maximize the cooking space on the smaller one and just go with one door.

I got this one from BassPro for 180 shipped (found 20 buck off coupon).

Since I got it from BassPro, I can't find it on their site anymore...

 

Anyway.. it's highly reccomended.. seems solidly built.. and if you find my first smoke post, you'll see how great it cranked out some brisket! I love it!

As far as I can tell from reading, "Qview" is just pictures of the good stuff.  If there's rules about it or something, let me know.  

 

I cured the GOSM-BB yesterday and I'm 5 hours into the first 2 racks of ribs.  I tried 2 different rubs, one on each.  I'm also about an hour into 5 ears of corn, soaked them in sugar water and rubbed OO, salt and pepper, before wrapping them back up and putting them on.

 

This is my first time to really do any smoking like this.  I've done some stuff on the grill before, but nothing like this.  Hopefully this turns out well, but I want to get good at it too.  With y'alls help, I'm sure I will be fine.

 

Pics coming maybe tonight, depends on how full I get.

I got a coupon for 20 off also, make sure to do a coupon search online if you buy on line, they also tack on a bit extra because of size, think my total was $214.00 delivered, after coupon.

I just picked up a used GOSM Big Block (3605BGD) for $100. It had only been used a total of 4 times. The outside is faded and it was dirty from being stored outside (under a tarp,) but the inside looked about new. I did a light cleaning of the inside this weekend and it looked new. Did a seasoning run and it performed just like new. It even had an extra (brand new) regulator/hose/knob assembly the guy bought because he couldn't get it up to temp - ended up it was just because it was windy the first time he used it. I'm very please with it so far...now I just need to get something to cook on it!

I'm looking at buying a dedicated smoker rather than using my grill.  If I get the BB but usually only fill two racks, would it be worth it?  Are smokers OK to run 1/4-1/2 full?

That's what I was looking for too.  This one is pretty big, but it's worth it to have the quality build.  I tried a smaller CharBroil version before this from Wally World and the build quality isn't in the same ballpark, with only a $50 difference.  I don't plan to have it full, maybe ever.  I've been shopping in this price range and size for a little while and I'm glad I got the GOSM-BB.

Trust me we all said at one time or another "I'll never use all that room" and most of us at one time or another have run out of room. It will run fine with one piece of meat or crammed full.

When my wife helped me pullout three racks of chicken thighs and drumsticks out of the big block, she said " I wish I had an oven this big". I wish her oven could smoke...

Be careful what you wish for, that may put you out of a job

My wife's oven can smoke.  She just can't seem to keep it from smoking!

I bought this one from bass pro a month ago.  THis is my fourth propane smoker, and I love this one the most.  You can fit alot of meat in it and the chip tray is huge,  I love that it has a removable drip tray that covers the bottom, and side ramps that shoot the dripping from the sides down to the bottom onto the tray instead of running down the sides all the way.  the water tray is huge too.  You can fit two racks of ribs on each shelf side by side instead of cutting them in half or going corner to corner with one per shelf.  They have it for sale right now for $174.99 on their website.I would buy this again in a heartbeat.  just might to replace my smaller one at the lake. :)  I think a guy could probley fit a smaller pig in here.  I need to drill it and put some hooks in it to hang sausage and other delicious things :)

 

You can t go wrong with this one.

Hay Good news is i just received my 3605 gosm from Bass Pro from  fedex this morning and have assembled it but found the racks, wall racks not the food racks, inside are bent.. still usable but not for $300.00. Looks like the boxes that they put in the open places between the racks went from side to side and bent them. the wood chip rack will not fit in the area and appears to be up with the chip pan to high to the water pan. I don't know what they will do. E-Mailed landmann CS waiting an answer...

 

let every one know what i do...

Time to dust off this thread...So it appears the 3605 model has been discontinued, does anyone have any insight to this?
