Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DavidB Great Christmas gift
Family gave to me for Christmas. Great smoker for the value. Break in process is simple and clean up is also easy. Smokes well with all types of wood. Have cooked beef ribs and chicken so far. Plans for pork ribs and pork butt soon. Best to use internal temp gauge also for added use in controlling the proper temp to cook.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RichS Great smoker very easy to use.
The is my first smoker and I couldn't be more pleased with it.
I got it for Christmas and assembled it in about 30 minutes. The cabnit has a good powder coat and the racks are nicely chromed. The chip box hold enough chips for more than 4 hours of smoke and the water pan holds over a quart. I smoked a 8.5 Lb pork but for 9 hours and still had coals and plenty of liquid when I was done.
My only issue was its a little difficult to hold the temp between 225 and 250. I had the control on low and adjusted the back vent but the best I could do was a fairly constant 250.

I Bought this for my husband last year for Christmas as a recommendation from his brother who also has this smoker, and he has been "smoking" ever since! it was the BEST gift ever, our neighbors even use it when we aren't, so she's buying her husband this exact model this year.
When he was first putting it together it did take a while,there were several small parts for legs and lots of screws but in the long run it was wort it.
I would definitely recommend this AND also a cover!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AndyB Been smoken the catch and then some for years
yeah baby. Been smoken the catch and then some for years, mostly with a charcoal smoker,. This Smoke Hollow smoker is great, which I bought only after DD for the budget and biggest bang for the buck. I can control the heat/temp (except, not so good on windy days), it's relatively very easy to clean and is otherwise 90% painless.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hank Good value for the price
Have smoked tri-tip, pork ribs and cornish game hens since purchase. All turn out very well. I like the propane heat source. very controllable. Definitely requires an inside the smoke box thermometer. Door thermometer reads about 20degrees higher than actual inside temperature. Could have included a more extensive recipe section, but that's a minor nit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roger Good price, need to practice to get it tuned in
Not as effective or easy to use as my old electric Brinkman. Does not produce as much smoke, and needs to be monitored closer and filled frequently. After a couple smokes, I found I need to chock it full of smoking wood (I use fresh fruit wood from our orchard).
