Hello everyone, My name is Jerry, I live in Erie,Pa. I'm new to smoking (have never smoked before), I've always wanted to try and have spent most of this summer researching smokers trying to decide weather to go with charcoil, gas or electric? A club I belong to was raffling off a Smoke Hollow Pro 44 last week and my wife bought $5 worth of tickets--it is now in my garage--just put it together last night! I'm going to have alot of questions--I do have a nephew that is very successful at smoking and all of his stuff is great so hoping he helps me out too. Looking forward to chatting with all of you!!
