  1. Hi

    Just signed up. I use the char-griller with side firebox and have the GOSM gas smoker.I use both a lot but I'm still in my learning curve and figure to be that way for a while.

    Hope to learn and possibly share

    OK Alan,
    Thanks for the response. It's always good to hear from "home folks." Hope all your smokes are good ones and that you share them with your friends here on the forum.
  8. Welcome Alan,

    I'm also from Georgia, 30 years outside of Atlanta in East Cobb County. Now live in South Florida. I have both of the sme smokers that you do I believe. I have aGOSM gas, and a Char Broil off set. This is a great site to learn and share.

    Interesting! Those are the exact same smokers that I have. I got the wide body GOSM last Christmas and I really like it (it's the stainless steel double walled type). From what I've seen here on the forum they are hard to find now. Anyway, what a coincidence.
  10. Florida Bill,
    I just modified my Char Broil with the baffle and chimney extension yesterday. So I have not used it since the mods. I've always had decent results with it as it came out of the box but always felt that it could be better! Can't wait to try it with the modifications.

    I think you will really like the changed performance of your smoker. Please be sure to let us know how it turns out.
