Hey everyone, glad to be here.

I've been smoking for over 8 years on a Char-Griller offset wood smoker.  Originally from Ft. Lauderdale and I've been in Skokie for a while now and I've been wanting to smoke more year-round and the offset smokers are a bit rough to keep a consistent temp during the winter.  So I just purchased a Smoke Hollow 44241G2 44-Inch Vertical LP Gas Smoker to supplement my Char-Griller during the winter.  And you can never go wrong with another smoker.

I only smoke Beef, Chicken, Turkey, Salmon & Veggies at home because my family doesn't eat pork or shellfish.  I need to go out of the house for my pork & shellfish fix.  I look forward to the gas smoker so I experiment a little bit more.  All suggestions are welcome.
Welcome to SMF!

Glad to have you aboard!

I spent 35 years in Ft. Lauderdale, now I'm in Sebring.

Out of the madness into quiet living!

  Good afternoon and welcome to the forum, from a cold and rainy day here in East Texas, and the best site on the web. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about everything.
