    I have been coming to this site since last summer when I decided I wanted to try some smoking. I have already learned a lot and gained some valuable information. I recently was in our local Walmart and was looking at their smokers when my eyes fell upon two GOSMs fully assembled and on clearance for $99. Needless to say I scooped one up real fast. Today I am doing my initial run with a 5.5 lb butt and things are going pretty good so far after a couple of initial flare ups. I just wanted to introduce myself and say Thanks for all the info, I am pretty sure I am already hooked and I haven't even tasted the pulled pork yet! Johnny

    Welcome jcats.
    Hope you have better luck with your first butt than I did. Bad ventilation, too much smoke. Looked good but had that terrible burning bitter creosote taste to it but I learned my lesson.
    Heres to wishing you a good day, and a good smoke.

    I have been trying to be a careful as I can about too much smoke, only time and taste will tell if I was successful.

    Ok, I thought we all agreed, no more folks from Iowa. Ha ha ha. Just kidding neighbor, a little friendly rivalry. Welcome to the site. This place is great. Learn what ya can fast because Spring is coming quick and that means smoking time. By the way, where abouts in Iowa? Im just North of Cresco, slightly West of Decorah. Glad to have ya onboard.

    Welcome to SMF, Johnny! You'll be glad you joined. Congrats on your new rig, I think you'll really like the GOSM. I have one myself. Good luck with your first smoke, but beware: It's addictive!
