    Nice to have you on board, Scott. There are smokers out there to meet your needs from inexpensive units like ECB's (around $50.00-70.00) to large stick burning units that can run a couple of thousand bucks). Best advice that I can give you is decide how much you can spend, pick your fuel source and pick your size and get the next size up. This will allow you to cook for your family and still leave you with plenty of room for additional fixing when you plan on having guests over for some 'que.

    Enjoy!

    Scott,

    The GoSM is a good unit, I have a propane GOSM myownself and I can load that baby up. Mine has four shelves so there is plenty of room. I have also modified my GOSM with a Char griller side fire box so I can switch over to lump and briquettes. Here is a link to page #3 of my conversion thread.
