    Got my new GOSM Big Block on Thursday and built it on Friday. I was pi$$ed off about the dent in the door and I an still waiting for Epod2000 to get back to me but if I have to i will take it to work and flatten it on a press. You can see in the picture how the door does not quite close all of the way but it did not seem to effect the temp too much. Bought 12 slabs of ribs on Friday to break it in and just so the smaller GOSM would not get jealous I did some ABTs and pig candy in it. I did 4 different rubs because my spice cabinet is full so the old lady said no more rubs until you use some so I mixed and matched some of the 1/4 full rubs and went from there. I am going to split this up into 2 posts.

    Congrats on a great smoke and Q View too! You'd be surprised at how much a GOSM can leak and strill get the job done.

    Nice looking smokes. Just think what you can do with a door that has no dents and dont leak. Nice Smoker and I know your happy with the way they took care of your problem. Wish you could get a truck like that.

    Thanks for all of the positive comments so far. The 3-2-1 method worked like a charm.

    Capt Dan, I don't know if I have to return the other door. I hope not.

    Doctor phreak, This is the link where I bought mine from. It was $234 with shipping and it was here in 4 days. Hope this helps.
