THEY GO OUT AND SPEND YOUR MONEY !!!!!! LOL I have outgrown my standard GOSM and after about a year of looking for a bigblock, finding one several times then backing out because I am cheap the wife and children got me one for fathers day... They even picked dear old dad up a new deep fryer as well. another Item I had backed out on a couple times agaiin because I am cheap.. So what do I need to do to this thing to get it up to speed? I have done several modifications on my little GOSM but that was over about 4 years and short of the cast iron skillet for a chip pan I cannot remember what I need to do to it. Figure I will season it with shortning hopefully on wed when I am off. Fire away... I know my little smoker has started having problems maintaining a constant temp. I figure it is due to the valve getting old,,, not sure. Used to set it and for all practical purpouses forget it.
