Outdoor Leisure Smoke Hollow Propane Gas Smoker comes equipped with a cast brass burner with three chrome plated cooking grids with multiple adjustment levels and a porcelain coated steel water pan. This unit has a cool touch spring wire door handle and has a push button ignition system.
Great for smoking pork, beef, fish, poultry and more--all in the great outdoors--this gas smoker seals in smoke from your favorite hardwood chips for moist, tender meats, every time. Built as tight and stout as a brick smokehouse, the Smoke Hollow outdoor gas smoker from Outdoor Leisure Products brings out all of the mouthwatering flavors in pork tenderloin and beef brisket and more. Fish aficionados have plenty of room for halibut steaks or strips of sockeye thanks to the smoker's 3 cooking grids that, at approximately 16 by 14 inches, ensure plenty of elbow room between pieces so that heat flows steadily upward for even cooking top to bottom. Poultry people will enjoy smoking whole turkeys weighing up to 15 pounds with a cook time of roughly 45 minutes per pound. The cooking grids are perfect for chicken breasts and thighs, too. Not only do the 3 cooking grids offer plenty of space for spare ribs, baby backs, and prime rib for the whole gang, they're chrome-plated for easy cleaning after the party is through.
The Smoke Hollow is packed with plenty of versatile features for smoking a wide variety of fare with ease. Multiple adjustment levels let you smoke slowly for days or turn up the heat to quickly marbleize side dishes and entrées. A cast brass burner stands up to high temperatures and long cooks. And, the smoker's porcelain-coated wood chip box resists scorching and corrosion even under extreme heat from Pecan, Hickory, White Oak, Apple, Alder and Mesquite woodchips. The water pan is also porcelain-coated to defy corrosion through years of use and fore easy cleaning. The door's magnetic latching system prevents leaks, trapping heat at a consistent level for quality smoked foods. Fitting nicely into patio corners, campers, and even car trunks for hauling to the family reunion or tailgate party, the unit measures 34 by 16 by 14 inches. And, a push-button ignition system means easy starts every time. A solid temperature gauge offers accurate cooking temperatures for easy monitoring. Two deluxe side handles make transport to and from the beach, campground, truck, patio, or deck a breeze. Best of all, assembly is a snap with easy to follow instructions and clear labels on all parts.

1) It puts out too many BTUs to maintain a steady 225 degrees. After research I found two resolutions...
One involved putting a secondary regulator between the main regulator and the burner. I forget the name of the device, but opted to not do that. My concern would be wind blowing out the smaller flame and propane reaching the burning wood. Boom!
Instead I drilled a hole on the top of the unit and essentially added a chimney. That did the trick. At least it did with 70 degree outdoor temperatures. I'll be curious how it performs on a 90+ degree day.
2) Not enough smoke flavor. I've read it's best to replace the wood box with something larger, like a coffee can. I've not yet tried this, but assuming the larger can will fit, I think it will resolve that problem.
3) Don't trust the built in temp gauge. Get a couple probe thermometers. One for the meat, one for the internal temp of the smoker.
Made the best brisket I've ever done in this unit, and I got some sleep too!
There's still nothing like all wood smoking, but for those days where you want some BBQ and not spend most of the weekend standing near a fire, this is a great unit.
For a gas smoker I believe this thing is about as good as it gets. It has a great design so far as a vertical smoker - the smoker box is located directly above the gas burner so it creates constant smoke so long as it is loaded with chips. I've noticed however that to get the wood chips smoking good, one needs to turn the burner up to medium or high for a few minutes initially and then go back down to low. I've done so far several racks of baby backs and spare ribs, chickens and pork shoulder and this thing imparts a thick pink smoke ring, even on the pork butt. In fact, the smoke ring on the ribs goes to the bone - they even taste kind of sweet and "hammy" from so much smoke.
The cabinet, hinges and door handle are constructed well and do not feel flimsy. The racks are strong and of high quality as is the water bowl and burner. The door has a thermometer placed such that it displays an accurate temperature (I have verified the temp is accurate with a separate internally placed oven thermometer). In all my smoking with this unit so far I've not had any drippings get around the water bowl and fall to the bottom of the cabinet or burner area so this is a plus.
The gas burner, valve, hose and regulator also seem to be of high quality and the smoker so far seems to be a miser so far as gas consumption is concerned. However one negative is that this thing seems to run a little hot for my taste unless you load it with lots of meat. For example, it's difficult to maintain stable/constant internal cabinet temps less than 250 degrees.Read more ›
