I've converted my GOSM charcoal smoker to electric, simply by adding a 1500 watt electric element from the brinkman cook n' cajun. I filled the charcoal box with gravel sized lava rocks and put the elemnt on top of them. It has worked well over the years, except that I go through 1-2 elements per year. It also seems that sometimes only the tips really heat up well. Does anyone know of a good electric element and where to get it?
