Greetings-I am a BBQ enthusiast interested in expanding my horizons in smoking meats. I hail from the Bay Area in Northern California an hour north of San Francisco. I have been grilling for over 20 years and I am always learning new things. My wife recently purchased for me a Smoke Hollow 4 n' 1 and, I am in the process of correcting the signature flaws that are addressed in the forums (High Temp JB Weld on the seams, Nomex gasket, paint job, etc.). I live in a moderate temperature, Mediterranean-like climate and plan to use this system through-out the year. Thanks for the read!
