I started the new year off right by joining SMF this morning. I am in/from Northeast Ohio. I am a long time hunter and part time foodie...I bought myself a Smoke Hollow 4400 for Christmas. As yet, it is still in the box in the garage (Grrr). I have become adept at making venison jerky in a dehydrator, and my friends and neighbors enjoy it with me, but I felt I needed to up my game. I have lurked as a visitor looking for tips/tricks for a while. I know I will receive valuable knowledge from members and very much look forward to a fun time here.
