Welcome to the SMF. As far as your question I'm sure you'll find members split....some will love them and some will hate them. I would suggest taking some time and type in Smoke Hollow reviews in the great search bar tool above and read all you want on the model you are considering to get some first hand input. Or maybe ask a specific question about that model in the general discussion forum before spending hard earned cash. Me? I run a Master Forge Vertical gasser, which I like after some mods, but wish I had held out for the XL model. Good luck with the search. Like any hobby/passion your first piece of equipment will probably not be your last.
Well another update on the smoker selection. I will be going to Sam's to get the Masterbuilt 40" tomorrow. After reading many posts on here and talking to my bro-in-law David (Callahan4life) I think it is a good deal. It is large and has all the bells and whisles to keep me happy. I will once again post how the set up and up comming smoke events go.
Fife, Welcome to SMF, we sure are glad to have you, I assume that you have been getting some pointers from your brother-in-law Callahan4life. He can cue you in on all the particulars of this site and will be a treasure trove of information for you to glean. You sure picked a nice smoker, I have several friends that have them and they all seem to love them so looks like your about ready to go! Again, we sure are glad to have you with us for the ride!
