    I bought one of these a while back, got mine from Cabelas it is all SS

    I like it a lot, bought it because of the height so I could do sausage and bologna.
  3. I got the camp chef 24" smoke vault.  I looked hard at the smoke hollow 44" but decided against it. 

    I wanted something that could fit a whole rack of ribs or a whole packer brisket.  My previous smoker was too narrow.  The Vault and Hollow are approximately the width, so either would work for that purpose.  I liked the idea of having all the space of the Smoke Hollow just because "bigger is better," but practicality won out for me.  I could probably do 3 whole briskets on the racks included with the Vault, or 6 boston butts.  For my purposes, this is more than enough space.  Also, while the reviews on the Smoke Hollow are generally favorable, I saw several comments regarding the considerable propane usage.  I am so far satisfied and am still on my first tank after 20+ hours.  Smoke Vault was $250.  I have ordered a gasket for the door as there is considerable leakage. 

    As far as price for the Smoke Hollow 44", Sam's has it for $279.
