Holland Epic Grill Review
Holland went out of business in 2019. All models are discontinued.
These unusual “grills” are actually outdoor, gas powered ovens that are completely enclosed with no open flame. Holland’s claim to fame is the guarantee of no flare ups. The 20,000 BTU round cast iron burner has only an ON and OFF setting with no ability to adjust cooking temps.
People who own a Holland are usually nuts about it because, even though it takes a while to heat up, once they throw the meat on they can close the lid and take it easy. Holland cooks roasts, chicken, turkey and fish beautifully, but with no sear power, BBQ performance on steaks and burgers is lacking. Grates are stainless steel with an aluminum drip pan underneath. A wood chip drawer provides a whiff of smoke for this closed system. Two faux stone side shelves are included.
