Hi everybody! My name is Jim and I am brand new to the art of smoking meats. I'm lucky enough to have a couple great BBQ restaurants around Syracuse and I find myself there more often then anyplace. Stemming from my frequent visits, I've heard about every BBQ competition within a few hundred miles and have had the good fortune to have been able to attend several. All I can say is I'm hooked! I love the smell, the look, the patience it takes and above all the taste!! So I went out and bought a Smoke Hollow Deluxe LP gas smoker. I seriously spent way too much time trying to figure out which one I wanted but decided on this because of the size and the actual construction. I've got to work for the next few days but come Sunday the golf clubs are staying in the trunk and its time to get a new hobby underway!
