My new GOSM 38" smoker

Discussion in 'GOSM Owners' started by kranders, Jul 19, 2013.

  1. I just got my new smoker from Costco. It was a snap to assemble and I'm seasoning it now. I'm planning on my first smoke being a whole chicken tomorrow.

    I adjusted the temperature gauge with some boiling water before assembly. It was easy to maintain 225 to 250 degrees during the 2 hour seasoning and a box full of oak Jack Daniels bourbon barrel chips lasted the whole 2 hours. At the end I set it on high and got it up to 350 degrees, I think I can crisp the shin on the chicken right in the smoker.

    So far, so good...I'm happy with my first smoker purchase.

    Congrats on the new smoker. Personally I smoke poultry at 325 or so the whole smoke

  7. I just went through my first tank of propane. It lasted me almost 30 hours and 5 smokes including an 8 hour whole chicken and a 10 hour pork butt.

    I'm having a good time with this thing!!
  8. That’s some good looking Q coming out of your new smoker. Nice thick smoke ring. Good job!
