Hi from Alabama.

I've grilled all my adult life but I'm new to the whole smoker scene. I started doing some internet research on what smoker to buy and ran across several BBQ forums including this one.

Now I used to think I a pretty darned good Boston Butt in the oven. I used a dry rub of a mix of paprika, garlic powder, dry mustard, salt, dark brown sugar, and pepper eyeballed and mixed together and threw it in the oven at 300 for about 6-8 hours.

But this year at the Rolex 24 Hours of daytona my buddy brought down his competition BBQ trailer and we smoked a butt and damn was it good.

It was after that I got the bug to get myself my own smoker. So I did some research and looked for a smoker of my own. I ended up with GOSM vertical gasser so I could first learn about meat and smoke and temperature and learn how to tend a fire later on.

So now I have my GOWM set up in the back yard. Added an extra 2" thermometer on the door for the lower racks. Bought some hickory, cherry, applewood, and alder and now I just need some meat and heat and time. I'll read the forums and try to gleen as much info as I can while I learn my new trade. I'll be helping my buddy at BBQ comp here at the end of March so I'll be experimenting heavily until then.
