Default First smoke

Just got a GOSM and fired it up for the first time (after seasoning it) last night. Made some bacon wrapped chicken breasts that came out fantastic. Smoked for 225 for about 3hours and turned it up briefly to crisp up the bacon at the end before pulling them out. Im hooked... A pork butt is goin on on Sunday and I cant wait.

Not sure what a GOSM is, but the best tip for the first timer is keep the lid shut.

That looks tasty.

2nd first timer tip... always wear shoes when working with coals, smokers or burning things. Third degree burns on your feet suck.

Just saying.

Ouch! I BBQ in flip-flops and never really worried about that. I do wear welder's gloves and am thinking about a thick, leather butcher's apron for flying cinders. Now you have me worried about my feet.

OP, that sounds and looks terrific! Welcome to ManCooking!!

I remember one time I decided to speed up my charcoal chimney by hitting it with some compressed air. I was wearing flip-flops. It was funny to everyone who wasn't me. On the upside I learned that when in great duress, I really can dance.

GOSM = great outdoors smoky mountain, its a vertical propane smoker that walmart carries. after reading these charcoal stories im pretty glad i chose propane

oh and as for keeping the lid shut, ya its tempting to open the cabinet door, but i held off. I didnt want the temps all over the place and it loses a ton of heat when the door gets opened. i was able to peer in through the vent in the top and take a peek to calm the desire to see whats goin on in there

I scared the myself ****less with my chimney. I placed it down on the concrete and went inside to get my gloves so I could move the coals around inside my ugly drum smoker after I poured in the hot the coals. I forgot about it for about 5 minutes, came back outside to my concrete spalling and sending the chimney 20-30 feet and blowing a bunch of hot coals in my parents yard/pool.
