    Hi everyone, I've been wanting and researching smokers now for about a year or so.  Just got my little 36" Smoke Hollow gas with a window and can hardly wait to use it. First I've got to season it, but after that, who knows what's in store.  I've gas grilled for ever but I've heard it is a whole different world "Smok'n".

    I'm a 50 something female and live in beautiful Sedona, AZ, and my family and I love all kinds of meat and fish.  Can't wait to educate myself and try some of the recipes here at SMF..

    Welcome from SC. I love that "red rock country". There are lots of folks who are always eager to answer your questions and give their tips. Like Al said, I always suggest chicken as a good start. Check out some recipes for a spatchcocked chicken. I think it cooks more evenly and also cooks quicker.

    How far is it from Sedona to Carefree? I don't remember, but I do remember the Horney Toad restaurant and the great fried chicken.

    good luck, and good smokin', Joe

    Yeah, that's one of my silly traits. I was actually in Carefree and Sedona about 25 years ago. I'm sure nothing has changed, LOL.
