Great Grill for the price

Posted

Pros: Cast iron grates, the grill, adjustable charcoal basket, starter, fire box thickness

Cons: thinner on grilling areas. leaks smoke like crazy, casters.

bought this grill at sams after looking over many of the different combo gas/charcoal grill units. I settled on this one due to the fact that it had the smoker already on it and everything on it was much more substantial than all of the other grills that i had looked at. plus the cast iron grates were a huge must for me. i hate cooking on wire racks for actual grilling.   now after assembling and using this i like it even more. the gas grill side is phenomenal, heats fast cooks well and the warming rack doesnt constantly fall into the grill like it does on some others i have used. the grates on this side are coated and have stayed clean over the two years i have had the grill. ...

Not real happy

Posted

Pros: I liked the combo grill

Cons: RUST!

I had mine for just over a year and it fell apart just after the years warranty was up.  I was fighting rust every time I used it, granted I was smoking or charcoal grilling a few times a week and probably got my moneys worth out of it but when I cleaned ashes out of it after I used it one evening and a 12" hole fell through the bottom of the cooking surface I was not very happy.  It got cleaned every cook and I was constantly cleaning rust off and repainting it.  Maybe I just got a bad one but I gave it away and upgraded to a ok joes longhorn

Smoke Hollow 4 in 1 2016 edition

Posted

Pros: Excellent sear burner, nice size, easy to assemble, settles into a good even 225 without any modification for short smokes

Cons: Metal could be thicker, seams should be fully welded not spots,

Overall I am very pleased with my Smoke Hollow smoker. IT is a great unit for me, I bought at Sams for less than 400 after taxes. The entire unit itself comes in at over 76 inches in total length so a cheapo cover is not in the cards unfortunately. The sear burner on the side is a great addition for steaks, fish, even for a quick toast of your favorite breads. The Gas side is excellent, i would put it up there with the very best Gas grill on the market, nice non stick grill grates over three very nice burners. The warmer tray is one of the best constructed on the market in my opinion, very solid and extremely functional. Now on to the smoker side, yes for long smokes you do have to do the...

Great Grill, good for hot short smokes

Posted

Pros: shear volume of cooking space, sear burner- firebox top grill grate option

Cons: requires alot of modification/ tweaks to maintain hot smoking temperatures on coal side

This 4 in 1 was a gift to me over the summer.  Overall the best GRILL i have ever had.  I enjoy the quality of the cast iron grates.  I did some of the mods as suggested and for long term smokes (talking brisket or shoulder) I still found that i really had to babysit it to maintain temperature.  Could be that I am in Michigan and i know colder tempuratures have a lot to do with it ( i did some fall smoking).  What i was able to smoke turned out great.  Perhaps i was spoiled rotten by the ease my meco electric bullet smoker.     I have not had any issues with anything melting off as others have said.  I broke a handle off the old fashioned...

Pleased! Great unit for the price.

I bought this unit because I was having some trouble with my Treager Texas model after upgrading it from standard (smoke, medium, high) thermostat, to a digital thermostat.  I have since, fixed the Treager problem.   I like the Smoke Hollow 4 in 1.  I like the use of charcoal.  I also like having a gas grill for convenience when it's too late to wait for coals to heat.  Also, there are various other times when the gas grill is simply more convenient, and/or as a second unit when needed.  I love the offset firebox for the smoker, and I can use either charcoal or stick wood to fire it.  The one thing I'm not crazy about, is the Searing unit.  I...

Smoke Hollow Pro 47180T 4-in-1 Grill

Posted

Pros: Under $300, Seems Well built, Easy to clean Propane side, Great starter Smoker,

Cons: Not really thick metal, hard to clean ashes from food chamber, leaks everywhere from spot welds, some smoke leaks, searer is small

The great thing is most all the cons can be fixed with some tweeks.  This make the Grill more personalized and funny to cook on. "Tweeks?" you ask... High temp JB Weld on seams in fire box, smoke box and dividing wall of the propane and charcoal chambers.     Fire proof rope on upper seam and holes in same dividing wall.   Made a pipe extension for the exhaust out of flashing. Used some rivots to make it look nice.     Removed rubber spacers from smoke box and charcoal chamber, then replaced with 1/8 inch gasket from fireplace window gasket. The fire box one for sure but you can use BGE gasket to boot.    ...

The Smoke Hollow 47180T 4-in-1: A well-built, affordable all-in-one that has tons of potential

Posted

Pros: value, versatility, customer support

Cons: heat control

I bought the Smoke Hollow for two reasons: 1. Versatility, and 2. Affordability. It’s versatile because this unit is really more like getting four units in one. It comes with a searing burner, a standard propane grill, a charcoal grill, and a smoke box for indirect heating. While it’s clearly not the most high-quality outdoor appliance on the market, you definitely get a lot for the price.   There are several companies that make products similar to this one. OLP seems to produce the highest quality product among their competitors. The Smoke Hollow doesn't have thickest grade metal, but all in all this is a pretty well-built piece of equipment.   Assembly takes some...
