    Well yesterday I went window shopping at WallyWorld a.k.a. Walmart.
    And lo and behold they had 3 GOSM 's in stock!
    So,I went back this morning and got one for $189.76 + taxes.
    Put it together and when I went to fire it up,there was a small gas leak betweeen the regulator and the screw on handle thingy [what ever it's called].
    So,I had to call the 1-800 # and tell them.He gave me an option of either taking it back for another or wait 10 to 15 days for them to ship me a new part.Well,I opted for the delivery,seein' as I didn't want to build another one.Besides that I'd already ready fired it up wood and all!!
    It might have been hard to explain why it smelled like smoke.
    Besides the leak isn't so bad that my life was in danger(just a wee trickle).
    And the wind was blowin' pretty good.(safe enough for now I figured)
    Anyway I'm a happy "Camper"(smoker) right now just thinking of all the new possibilities I can do!
    WeeHoo!!

    Hopefully they honor their word. I had a bad regulator on mine and it took them 3 months to send me a replacement.

    Good luck with the new smoker. I like mine now that the regulator is fixed.

    Nice.... it's what I have.

    But wouldn't it be easier to return it to Walmart and get another one ? Their return policy is good, or it used to be.

    It's the narrow body style. About 18" or so, maybe 16".

    Triple B -

    I have some friends that have had the misfortune to work for WalMart and they take back almost everything! I've heard stories about them taking back shoes that were "defective" when the soles and heals were all wore off!


    Congrats on the new smoker!

    Congrats on the GOSM. I know you guys have a time getting them up there it sounds like lately, but if I could exchange and cure the problem now without dealing w/ the company I would gladly assemble another. It sounds like since being bought out the Great Outdoors service has declined somewhat. Either way, congrats and enjoy.

    I've got one of the older model GOSM's. Has the bigger/heavier cast iron chip box. I love it!! Keeps the temp stable, easy to refill the box with offset pliers, and is almost set it and forget it. When I do butts, I usually do an overnight cook and I am able to get at least 3 hours sleep at a time.

    Notice the thin blue smoke! (as I do the "Tim Allen" simian grunt)

    p.s. I switched tanks today and no gas leak...hmmm

    No problem.[​IMG]
     
  19. Check the thread about new tank not working. If you cut the tank on and didn't have the smoker off, or cut the smoker on to fast you may have tripped the leak protection thingy in the tank.

    Congtrats on the new smoker, looks like your weekends are planned!

    I noticed on the picture of the outside of the smoker that the handle looks different. Did you replace the original? What, where, how much???
