Hi gang,

I just stumbled in here last night. I have been grilling for years but have been wanting to take the plunge into smoking meat.

I have already bought Jeff's rub and sauce recipies and am now deciding on what type of smoker to get. I think I am leaning toward a GOSM based on what I have read here so far.

Well off to do more reading
Welcome aboard the SMF!! You have found the right place to learn all about the art of smoking meat. The GOSM is a great choice. Feel free to ask questions of all the fine folks here. Glad you joined us.
Welcome aboard. You came to the right place. I'm a GOSM owner and it is a great unit. Would recommend the wide body to preclude issues in the future. Sign up for the 5 day and I strongly recommend you use the smoking log your first few smokes. It kind of gets you to be aware of what your unit can do as you collect data.
Look forward to hearing about your smokes and seeing lots of Q-views.
Orlando huh.

Well, i shouldn't hold that against you. I lived there most of my life but escape in 2001. The "Stress Capital of the USA" just didn't suit me anymore.
Welcome anyway. Hopefully you'll find new friend and some great ways to do the 'Q'.
Well...... I use to live in N.Y. so this was de stressing for me....lol

Thanks gang, I am actually thinking about the $189 deluxe GOSM. I found out about a meat market not too far away where I can get some brisket too.
Welcome to SMF johnm160!!! Spring for the Deluxe model if you can. The extra room is well worth it and construction seems better on the units I have saw.
Welcome to the forum. You will get know alot of great folks here willing to help in any way with your adventures. Have fun.

Welcome to SMF, the place for great Q and friendly and helpful people. A lot of people here have the GOSM and really love it. Good luck with your decision and visit often.
Welcome to SMF!! You can get great ideas and wonderful tips. You have a great home at SMF!! Remember to share your ideas, recipes, and Pictures for Drool time
Welcome to SMF johnm160! You have come to the right place ...

While you are shopping for your new 'Q', take a look at the Camp Chef 'Smoke Vault 24' ... a bit more money but well built I understand.
I have bought and paid for mine and will pick it up in Wisconsin next month while on vacation.

Welcome to SMF, there are a lot of very helpful people here, I have learned
a lot from them in a very short time
Thanks for the welcome everyone.....I am still reading and learning.

Wow that Camp Chef 'Smoke Vault 24 sure does look purdy..... I don't know if I can find that locally but I will look.
