Just got my new GOSM like your's this past week too!  You mentioned using "chips," find some chunks and a pan will last you longer.  Not sure if you did, but I started preheating because that wood box is such heavy cast.  I meant to get a 9x9 metal cake pan for my third smoke today...but forgot to pick one up.  I've seen where others have also cut down a coffee can to replace the heavy cast wood box.


EDIT - did want to mention I added some chips to my chunks today and I'm a little on the fence because it created a ton of smoke...I pulled the box 45 minutes in to my smoke and dumbed the chips out....I was worried because it started to get well beyond that TBS.  YEP, I'm a newbie...LOL


Hope you had a good smoke today!

I am going to pick up the 9x9 pan to replace the cast iron box. Question you then cover with aluminum foil with holes poked or leave uncovered??

dajints, is the smoker a Model 3405BGW (Wide Body) with a smallish SMOKER box, 5" X 5" OR SO?

If it is, do a search on this forum for some mod ideas, some folks have come up with some clever ideas to obtain TBS.


I have used a mini dutch oven as a smoker box on my first GOSM
