Just ran across this group this morning. Guess I qualify. I live in Bridgton Me and have been smoking for a few years. I used an offset for years and finally got a Landman GOSM 38 wide a couple of months ago. After some mods, I am very pleased with it.

(K4ZTT) Smoked my Christmas turkey yesterday and ready to enjoy it. Merry Christmas all.
