Smoking in IN

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by olllllllocj, Jul 15, 2008.

  1. Hi folks....

    New to your site and looking forward to using some of the info I have already found here. Great forum with so many interesting ideas.

    Have always made do with a little Brinkman charcoal smoker and gas grill but I remembered seeing something at Wal-Mart...

    Picked up one of these today:

    Great Outdoors Smoky Mountain 3405BGW

    Season clearance, on sale for $120

    Wal-Mart also had a few of these:

    Great Outdoors Smoky Mountain 3405GW

    Also on sale at $80

    May or may not be in stock at your Wal-Mart. [​IMG]

    Seem like good buys to me, yes I understand a few modifications will be in order. Used to that since I'm a Jeeper. [​IMG]

    Let me just thank Kelly (a fellow Jeeper) for sending me a link to this site.

    Hey Dale,

    Another Hoosier here just wanting to welcome you to SMF. I have the very same grills/smokers that you have and in the same order. I think you will come to love the GOSM but I still go back to my ECB quite often. Just something about the whole cooking process being done with coal.....MMMMmmm. You cant beat the consistency and convienece of the GOSM and all the room ( I am asuming you got the wider one, Big Block). I find that using large chucks of wood works better for me than soaked chips. I am not even soaking the chucks at all any more and having grat results. Dont forget to season your new smoker. I found a very nice, high quality cover for the GOSM at Gander Mountain for $30. Just a little FYI.

    Hope to hear about and see your next smoke!

    Matt

    Welcome, Dale. Cool screen name. (not a jeep guy just used to work on the liberty headlamps back when it came out)
     
  19. Wow that's way more posts than I expected for a new guy post.

    Thanks for each and every one.

    Seasoned the new GOSM today....

    Thinking of doing some Baby Backs, maybe with some Spare Ribs this weekend as a first smoke.

    Will post it up if it happens as planned.

  20. Well by Friday night I just couldn't wait any longer. New thermometer came on Thursday, the GOSM had been seasoned, there were things in the fridge... So I smoked a Fattie, all in the spirit of testing out the new smoker mind you. [​IMG]

    Great Fattie, just some cheese, Cheedar and Pepper Jack. I didn't share (shame on me) and it was good reheated. [​IMG] Sorry didn't take any pictures (no QView).

    Then Saturday I set out to test the GOSM a bit more extensively....

    Two racks of Baby Back and two chunks of Country Style Ribs. Naked Rib Rub on them all.

    Good eating. [​IMG]
