i bought my GOSM big block about 2 weeks ago. We had a dinner party last night for 12 people and i went with bacon wrapped rice-a-roni stuffed game hens. i used jeffs naked rub on the outside and smoked the lot for them for almost 4 hours. they turned out very pretty and juicy and delicious. everybody picked their bird clean. i think that is a good sign. the dog looks on. she spent hours sitting next to the smoker wondering what was taking so long. my wife looks happy. she only has to make the side dishes. 3 hours in. adding more water to the pan. just pulled and on the way to the cooler for holding. my dogs kept sniffing around the cooler. i had to put it up out of their reach. my only regret is that i did not throw a slab of ribs in the smoker since i had the room. next month, stuffed fatties and stuffed pork loin.
