I have been researching smokers for a few weeks now, yes I over analyze these things, trying to decide what to get. I have narrowed it down to either a GOSM gasser or the WSM. Price wise they are around $50 of one another so i am not worried about cost. I have never smoked before and do not want to be discouraged either. I want to do brisket primarily, pulled pork, beef roasts (prime rib), ribs and the occasioanal chicken. I have read a lot about both smokers but would appreciate thoughts and experience with these.
