Hello all, I've been reading quite a bit in these forums for the past couple of months and feel that I've picked up quite a bit. I made the mods to my smoker (ECB) and feel that I've had some rather modest successes... though I have stumbled along the way, to be sure. I have also just been granted leave by my other, more presentable half, to move up a little and get a new smoker (about $200 or so not counting "incidentals"). I've been considering the GOSM... REALLY considering it!!! I really want something with a fair amount of room where I can actually smoke ribs while laid flat... haven't really been able to fit too much in the little Brinkmann. Looking forward to being a vocal member of the community... and posting a QVIEW or two to boot. Thanks, Ray aka "Starbug"
