n00b from Austin Texas here. I've been doing a ton of propane grilling lately and I'm interested in trying smoking again. I had one of those cheap Brinkmann style charcoal water smokers several years ago that I did a few turkeys and some other stuff in and I really enjoyed it. I believe that charcoal is where the flavor is at - but I'm willing to sacrifice a little bit of perfection to make things easy on myself. I started out this morning looking for an electric smoker so I can start smoking again without having to fiddle with it all day and I ended up settling on a propane GOSM that I'm planning to order shortly.
