    Thanks for the info, Crazyhorse. UPS is slated to deliver mine in a few days. I will make note of the package condition. And I agree with you on the other board thingy. Give credit where it is due and look around for other places yourself. BTW this is the only smoking board I am registered with!
    Cheers!

    Monty,
    I wish you the very best with your new GOSM. I have one and I love it. And by the way, Crazyhorse, I'm really glad to hear that you also have one. Sorry about the damage. Hope it works out for you. (I'm still enjoying your mustard based BBQ sauce recipe.)

    I was lucky enough to have found one of the dual walled stainless steel models and I really do think it's the greatest. Good luck to both of you!

    Thanks, Bill! The big brown truck should be here Monday or Tuesday. And I also hope all is well with you! Just getting back into the swing of things after a rough winter. Take care and I have already said a word or two to the Big Guy about those windy events he like to send your way!
    Cheers!

    Hey Monty-
    Ask Mr. Brown if you can inspect the goods before accepting delivery. Some parcel carriers will not cover any damages if the delivery wasn't inspected before acceptance. The problem of course is the driver doesn't like to wait around for the parcel to be inspected 'cuz they have other stops to make! :roll:

    Hey, Dutch! That would normally be a good thing. But Mr. Brown and his counterparts will not do my drivewway in any season so I have my stuff delivered to my place of employment. They have standing orders to just drop the stuff in the office. I am usually piloting a truck or running heavy equipment somewhere unless it is raining too hard to do so. Pray for rain...PLEASE!
    Cheers!

    Hey Guys, I just bought a GOSM and I'm wondering, what's the advantage of using a can, instead of the cast iron box that came with it?

    Hiya, Grinder! Welcome aboard. My GOSM finally arrived via common carrier yesterday. From what I understand many folks feel that the coffee can method delivers smoke faster because the cast iron takes so much longer to come up to heat. It also cools faster and allows for quicker cleanup and so on. I will try both over a period of time with different goodies and post results in a month or so.
    Cheers!

    SRMONTY..

    Congrats on the new addition to the family...I'm sure you are going to like it a whole lot..mine has been great...haven't tried the coffee can yet..have had good luck with the stock pan so far..worth a try tho.. door temp gauge is still off by about 10-15* low..as compared to a digital clipped to the cooking shelf ....on the same level as door temp gauge..
    If you didn't see the post I made earlier...about the little mod I made to the vents...check it out...just a little something to keep in mind when you put yours together...anyway..

    GOOD LUCK...

    Hey, Richard! Thanks! But too late! That puppy was together shortly after sundown yesterday. Think I am gonna go stock for now and then get to do some experimenting after I get a line on my baby's personality! Will let you know how things turn out this weekend!
    Cheers!

    Thanks, Dutch! Pulled it off the tail of an 18 wheeler yesterday. Had it assembled shortly after I got home. Today has been all business, though. Had some storm damage from a vicious thunderstorm and have spent most of the day making that right. Tomorrow is work and come Friday I will be seasoning and completing a shopping list for Saturday! I have a pair of thirty pound tanks dedicated to it and of course there is always a spare twenty for the regular grill.
    Yeeehaaaawww!
    Cheers!

    I must say, I was very impressed with the instructions that came with the GOSM. Great illustrations, made assembly a snap.

    I was really impressed with the hardware packets. Each one had a letter on it and was for a specific step in the assembly instructions. Even more so I was impressed with its delivery condition. The package was strapped to a pallet that was at least a foot wider than the box in all directions. Nothing could get close enough to bang and dent unless somebody got really stupid. C'mon weekend!
    Cheers!

    Yup, it's amazing the small things that make a difference (Letter on assembly packets).

    srmonty, I tried the coffe can VS. a baking pan. To be honest it produced the same amount of smoke in the same time. I think I am going to stick with the baking pan as, IMHO, it was esaier to deal with.

    Take care,

    Brian

    Monty,
    Congratulations on the newest member of your family. Like the others, I really hope you enjoy your GOSM as much as I have enjoyed mine. And also, (I don't think there is any doubt about it) hope you will keep us posted as to how it does...... perhaps some pictures.

    All Right! Thanks, Guys, for sharing in my excitement. I will still keep the ECB handy but will defer to the GOSM most times. Here here's a news flash. Just bought myself a very well configured digital camera. Gotta learn how to use it since I no longer have an eight year old in the house! As a matter of fact, let's see, my youngest was eight 17 years ago! So we'll see how it all pans out!
    Thanks again!
    Cheers!
    Monty

    SRMONTY..

    You sound like a kid in a candy store...LOL...

    The weather sown here in CT. was so nice I just had to take the day off tonight...did my salmon with cherry wood again tonight...anyway...just wanted to let you know...I tried using a baking pan instead of the cast iron smoker box...IMHO..it is a very big improvement...used a Bakers Secret square pan...it measured 7 3/4 by 7 3/4...that was the measurements on the package...and it fit right into the slot on the rack as if it were made for it...got some pics..but I don't see any way in this quick reply area to attach them..if ya want I'll put them in a new post for ya..

    Have fun

    Later

    Crap

    I rarely look at this sub-forum, for I don't have a gas smoker, but living up north here, and seeing all this excitement over Monty's purchase, I gotta go look at one of these things.

    Thanks for the thread all, and Congrats Monty!
