Looks good!


I think it holds temps fine when on high. I tend to always be looking for a low temp like 225 to 275 ish. So holding temps is kind of on the other side of the scale for me. I have noticed it doesn't really "Grill" that well. I think a Weber-Q is much better at grilling with the ceramic coated cast iron grill. Makes serious nice marks on a burger. When the smoke hollow is on high an the grill is real hot it really doesn't make nice tasty marks like the Q does. That's actually all I "Grill" for the most part on the little Q.

I have two of them. I am keeping the one that is in the OP’s picture. I really like it for smoking and indirect cooking.

I liked it so much I bought one without the trays for the camper. Unfortunately it is cumbersome to take out & put away. Live & learn.

I bought 10lb LP tanks thinking lighter to manhandle while camping. One tank last almost a summer at the house. I do not grill every day.

They are really well made & grill just fine. But the low temp cooking & smoking are where they shine. Slow cook a steak and then sear it at the end makes for a great steak.

Got it from Amazon, about 30-35 lbs, has a latch to hold it closed when not in use, will be a permanent addition to my load out.

Wow, it looks really impressive and I like the side shelves. Any serving photos to share?
Don't use a gas grill, I carry one of the small coal ones (here's my latest, from masterbuilt) and a bucket of charcoal. But now I'm starting to think about adding one of these to my collection.

Doubt that I would do it but have been debating the Pit Boss Tailgater.
We have the Road Trip from Coleman. I like it for cooking maybe a third of the things we prepare and cleanup is terrible... It does not do the low and slow!!!

I am going to admit how big a dummy I can be.


I have had my Smoke Hollow grill for two years. When I started it up I could not see any difference when using the smoker flame on low or high. Like duh, I tried it early this month on low setting for the first time. The temp never got to 130F. On high it always was at 150F. Now it was in the forties outside. But that says it is putting out less BTUs.


After knowing that. I made really outstanding baby back ribs and this last week the best filet minion I have ever made. All on the smoker burner knob set on low. That is the only way to go. A bit of mesquite smoke helps.


I hope I am the only one that did not figure out the above.


It is a great well designed grill.
