Wish I could but they don't offer the Big Block here in Cancuckland. Walmart only has the 3605.

I think no one offers the Big Block in store in Canada unless you special order.

Chrish,

Do you fill your smoke box up completely wood when you are starting a smoke and then just add? I have only smoked twice with my GOSM, but with good success just not sure if I am using to many chips . Thanks for any help on this!

Jts70 yes i fill it up tho i use chunks more then chips, I dont let the wood turn to ash in my GOSM Ive read that many times over the years its said to produce a bad taist i dont know how right that is but saving the black charcoaled wood can be used later as charcoal, i just dump out the pot and add more if i dont have another pot filled and ready to go.
you cant really use to many chips, dont pack the wood in just leave it loose but fill it up, when i use chunks ill put those in and then fill in the gaps with chips of a different wood.

Bubba,

Yeppers just about 25 miles north of Lapeer. I work in Lapeer and have to make a Depot run today anyway(Damn moles, Grubx time). So I'll see if they have any chunks. Thanks!

Bubba if you are ever up this way there is a small Mennonite store that has bulk spices you would not believe the prices .Bulk beans and flour too. Let me know if you want directions. You can fill up a grogery cart full of spices and not even come close to breaking $50. Might be worth the trip for you or your team mates,

Jeff

Chrish, another questions for you. This weekends smoke I noticed the paint on my door beginng to bubble up is this something I should worry about. maybe scrape off and repaint or just let it be. We had some really strong winds this weekend and I had to make alot of adjustments with the temps.

On another note I think the wife and I still have a paypal account if you are serious , UPS pick everyday, l et me know

Jeff -

Are these people actually Mennonite's? They still don't use chemicals right?
So were taking organic spices to boot right?

Debi,

Yes, they are Mennonite's. Everything is organic, not one chemical!! I just love the place. The veggies and fruits are the freshest I have ever seen, I have in fact seen them turn trucks around because of the poor quality!

jts70--- is it on the outside or inside that its peeling off?
if its on the inside i dont worry just scrape it off and the next time its used it will be covered up from the smoke.

if its on the out side, I use the black grill paint from wal-mart and i might use a stove black "its a really dence black paste".

I would have to say they have just about everyting you could need. I use alot of spices and not just the run of the mill stuff and they have yet to disappoint me!
