    I am new to smokers. My wife and kids gave me a smoke hollow Pro smoker ( propane with one burner ) from Sam's for Christmas.
    I have now used it twice and the burner continues to go out I thought it was blowing out so I blocked all the wind but it still goes out . The propane is still feeding food the time because as soon as I hit the igniter it starts up again. Any ideas ?
     
  2. Having same issue on my SH 38". I put up windbreak all the way around the smoker and it hasn't repeated. Might help.

    Good luck,

    Yea that's the one disadvantage to a gas smoker. The wind can blow the flame out. I keep my Smoke Vault in a pretty protected area for that reason.

  4. bought my husband one for Christmas.  Just tried it out, first time, would not  get above 175.  let things smoke then finished off in over.  Read about resetting regulator. did that, now it won't stay lit will burn for 2 minutes then goes out. it's not the wind, have a wind break up.  He is very frustrated with this.  any help or suggestions woule appreciated.

  5. Smoke hollow told me this.  Open valve 1/2 turn on tank.  Then open valve on smoker to start.  Press red button to light.  Keeps safety valve from setting.

    Also if you open the tank valve very slowly the safety valve won't reset.
