    Hey all, i'm Paul from thornton colorado. Been wanting a smoker for awhile (wife and i split up in sept and since i cant really cook everythings been on the grill and its getting old). Parents got me a smokey hollow electric smoker for christmas, got home and put it together and have spent the last 2 hours snooping around on here, and digging through the freezer to see what i can smoke!

    Going to season it tomorrow and probably wont be able to smoke anything till after i get paid this week, christmas kind of cleaned me out. Never smoked anything myself, pretty much grew up on smoked sausage so ultimately after some practice i'd like to do some of that.

    But anyway i'm 26, your average tattoo'd up redneck, huge into diesel trucks/performance, cars, bikes, hot women... The usual! I'm a welder by day and pickup alot of sidework out of my garage to keep me out of trouble. Basically just living life and having fun!

    Welcome,  That's one of the nice things about smokers,  you can have it running while you are working in your garage.  Sounds like a good way to attract customers
