Just found this site and wanted to say hello. I purchased a Great Outdoor Smoky Mountain smoker yesterday to replace my old Big Chief. Little did I know it isn't really the same type of smoking unit and processes seem to be a little different. I am ready to get into this ASAP and need some information, this site should be the place, I hope.

Welcome to SMF, LT. Nothing like going from eletric to something different. You didn't say what type of GOSM unit you have. Several of us use the GOSM Big Block (propane fired) with great results.

Thanks for the reply Dutch!
I bought a GOSM Model A032142 36" Stainless Steel Smoker, I couldn't find a simple model # on it anywhere. I'd like to learn more about how to use it correctly and if I can still use it for smoking / drying like the old Big Chief. Can't wait to brew something else up today!

Welcome to SMF LT!!! Is your GOSM gas or carcoal fired? Either way, plenty of GOSM users here to get you up to speed.

Welcome, Welcome!

Glad you are here!

Check out the propane smoker section of the forum. Ask lots of questions and the friendly folks here at SMF will make answer.

Take care, have fun, and do good!

Welcome to the site, LT. You'll get alot of use out of your GOSM.

Do us a favor and update your profile so we know a little more about you, OK?
