Hey all, just got a smoker for Christmas.. It's a Smoke Hollow electric smoker, and I must admit I'm pretty excited! I've always loved to cook.. starting when I was younger (im only 22 to begin with) with a microwave and Ramen Noodles and anything I could add to it. Glad to say I've moved up in the world and do a lot of cooking and experimenting with a Crock-pot and a charcoal grill.

     I've already got the smoker assembled and seasoned, I also just so happen to have apple wood from a tree i cut down early last Spring, already split and drying (This is probably what spurred someone to get me a smoker... i didn't ask for it) Lookin' to take a stab at some jerky this weekend.. Hope to learn a lot from this site and everyone on it..
