Hello, my name is Matthew and I'm glad to be here. In my short time browsing this site I have already learned so much -- many thanks to you all for sharing your experience with those of us who are learning! My wife bought me my first smoker (a Smoke Hollow electric) this year for my birthday and I have been having a lot of fun with it. I cooked professionally for many years and it killed the fun in it for me, so I am really happy to be enjoying it again! My smoker works great now that I am getting the hang of how it runs and have had some pretty decent results in smoking ribs, pork butt, and some chickens. Still building up my confidence to try a brisket, but hope to tackle one soon!
