There is a lot of positive feedback on the GOSM and that certainly is a positive thing! However, there seems to be quite a few people on here having some trouble with regulating the temperature and faulty temperature guages. When I used my GOSM the first time, the exterior guage maintained around 280 degrees on the lowest temp setting and tank 1/4" turned. I ran on here later and was told to get an interior guage, as the exterior stock one's aren't the greatest. So I go to the store, buy a double pronged interior guage, and fire the Smoker up Saturday morning. Indeed, my external guage was off by about 40-50 degrees. But now, I have a new problem. My temperature, which I originally thought was too high, is actually too low. I couldn't get the interior above 219 degrees and usually maintained about 212 degrees. The butt took forever and through off my carefully laid plans (perhaps I shouldn't plan so much!!!). The smoker is underneath an awning, was facing into a light wind, was cranked all the way to "high", and tank opened up wide. I realize I am fairly new to the smoker, but really what else can you do? The flame on "high" wasn't any larger then when it was on "low". Obviously, this could be because of my lack of experience, but turning the know on my tank and then turning the guage from low to high on the smoker shouldn't be too difficult!!! Am I missing something here?
