    Hey guys, I've been creeping around this site for a while now, and thought I should introduce myself. I'm Ryan from MN. I am relatively new to smoking meat, and have used a cheap Brinkmann drum style smoker. It works fine for just me and the little lady in the summer, but would like to move to a propane model to be able to use in the winter.

    I noticed quite a few of you from MN have the GOSM big block. Where did you find it? From the research I have done it looks like BassProShop is the only place to buy it-and there isn't one in MN that I know of. I guess internet order would work, but shipping gets pretty spendy.

    Any thoughts?

    Ryan welcome to SMF glad you decided to join the party. The last I knew Walmart carried the GOSM's not sure if they still do or not or which models they carry

    Hey Ryan!

    Greetings from Savage,MN [​IMG]

    Propane smokers are not usually insulated, and in our "FREEKING COLD" winter months, you'll need something that's insulated.

    Lots of guys on here from Minnesota.
