Smoke Hollow 47180T combo gas grill/smoker. Acadamy sports have them. I am looking at one of these for the house I would like some thoughts and opinions would be great.
I do have those same problems and in the process of correcting them. The SFB grate is for wood strips rather than charcoal, so that will be addressed. The seals are also a problem so yesterday I stopped by the local auto parts store and picked up the RTV high temp gasket/sealer to make a decent seal on the lid. Thanks for posting.I just got done looking at some reveiws of this unit (most of them have only had it for a short period and I don't know how experienced they are)... I did see there are a few things you will have to pay some attention to... The SFB (side fire box) like most all others will need a charcoal basket made for it.. one, to keep the charcoal up higher as the ash will build up and restrict the air movement around the charcoal when useing the original grate (on longer smokes)... two, they say the charcoal falls threw the grate as grateing is spread to far apart... But this Is an easy mod to do....(Spoiled Rotten, do you seem to have this problem ?) They are also saying that the lids do not fit tightly.. as a matter of fact they say there is little rubber bumpers on the bottom of the lids which leaves a small gap... take the rubber bumpers off...you may also have to use oven door rope gasket to seal the lids better... Most all smokers have this problem as well... but all in all... it doesn't sound to bad... Good luck with whatever you chose
I believe I paid about 370.00 for mine at Sam's Club. The SFB does come equipped for wood, primarily due to the type of grate inside. I did fix that little issue. I have really enjoyed mine. I would buy another one due to the flexibility of the grill. "all in one grilling".May I ask how much this grill goes for? I amco spidering buying one of these and I want to know how much I will need to invest. Also, i am not really mechanically inclined, so I am curious if the modifications are hard to do and if someone with a bit of a brain and very few tools can accomplish them (me).
What I understand is that this grill is a three heat source grill. Charcoal, wood, and propane. In the smoker box I think the intent is to use wood, is that correct?
And my last question, now that you have had it a while would you buy it again if you had the chance to choose again?
