My name is Steve and I live near Chicago. Santa decided I was a good boy last year and brought me my first propane smoker, a 36" Smoke Hollow, which I seasoned last week. Up until now, I've attempted to smoke on my charcoal grill using the offset method with varied success. I've been wanting to get into smoking for a while now, so I'm just trying to read and learn as much as I can. I am fortunate to have a butcher practically right in my back yard who will custom cut whatever I ask for. By the way, my smoker is a brand new model for Smoke Hollow (it's the 36") so I'll be happy to provide feedback if anyone's interested. Thank you!
