    I guess it's time to introduce myself. I decided to get a smoker last year. I'd been cooking ribs and pulled pork in the oven with some success, but I wanted better. I bought a used ECB from a Craigslist ad, and used it about five times. I had a lot of trouble getting the temperature high enough, and finally decided I didn't have the patience to become a charcoal jedi master.

    After a lot of reading, I decided to get a GOSM-type propane smoker. I figured I'd probably get the model that Lowes sells. I wasn't in a hurry; it's still cold around here and none of the local stores have the smoker in stock. Then today I was in Menards (a midwestern home improvement chain like Lowes or Home Despot), and found that they had a few actual GOSMs in stock! I just got it home and haven't unpacked it yet. Now I guess I'm off to the store to get some meat!

    Goodluck! I have a GOSM in addition to my wood smoker. The GOSM is very user friendly and just as tasty!

    Howdy from Columbus. I've had my smoker a while now, and they don't have much of a selection during the winter months.

    Interestingly enough, GFS sells hardwood charcoal, about 16 lb bags for pretty cheap...haven't had the time to go out and buy and try tho.
