Greetings and Happy New Year all! I have read and read and read these posts, and still would like a little personal advice on picking out a new smoker. I have been using my old offset firebox model for years and years with good results, but frankly I'm getting a bit tired of all the work involved. I'd really love to smoke more briskets and whole pork shoulders, but checking the fire hour after hour just isn't as fun as it once was. So I've decided to pick gas over electric due to the facts that I live where it gets cold and the recovery time of an electric element isn't so great. I'll still keep my charcoal grill, and of course I absolutely LOVE my Jenn-Air gas grill. So I come to you for advice. It seems a person can't go wrong with a GOSM model, but which one? There are a few different models, and now I see the new one with the drawers. Perhaps there is a different smoker I haven't been looking at. Let's just say I'd like to be able to smoke turkeys, briskets, ribs, shoulders, fish, jerky, and keep the price under say $500. I want the best unit I can get so I don't ever look back and think "If only I'd bought the....." thanks a ton!
