    Question for ya,
    My GOSM is ticking...not ticking like the starter ticking...
    Is it just the metal expansion/contraction thing?

    It's pretty new, only second smoke after the seasoning.

    I have only had my GOSM for about 2 weeks and I heard the same ticks. Seems to have stopped after the 5th or 6th smoke.

    Mine gave a big pop during seasoning and the 1st smoke. We'll see if it happens again this weekend. It's a beauty, though.

    My big block does it all the time. Especially right after i close the door. Just metal reacting to heat temp changes. I think a heavier gauge metal cabinet wouldn't do that...
