Hello, My first post here.I am quite impressed with the amount of information that is available at this site.Also it is awesome how helpful everybody is to us newcomers. Anyway, I don't own a smoker yet. I have been looking hard. One brand I came across was Smoke Hollow. They are a bit more expensive. I haven't seen much on the site on this brand. I like how it seems so well insulated. When you shut the door I don't get that tinny feel like I do with a GOSM. Is a well insulated "box" super important. I do live in Iowa and can see using my smoker in some cooler temps. I think I am definitely interested in going gas. I'd appreciate any input on this brand.
