Smoke Hollow’s 30″ Vertical Propane Smoker is a generic, low cost device. Three chrome plated cooking racks provide 504 square inches of capacity. The door handle is of the cool touch spiral rod type and it has a locking latch.
Unlike many gas smokers that have cast metal round burners, this one uses a 10,000 BTU stainless steel tube burner. The wood chip tray is long and rectangular to conform to the burner. It comes with a standard water pan.
The built in heat indicator is sure to be inaccurate. Smoking over long periods of time at the wrong temperature is a BBQ-NO-NO. Reward yourself, family and friends by getting an accurate digital thermometer.
One year limited warranty on parts, 90 days on the water pan and 90 days on paint “except for rust which may appear after repeated use”. Smoke Hollow vertical smokers are light weight, but most owners are very happy with their purchase.

Smoke Hollow has offered value-priced smokers since 2005. They make several vertical, cabinet-style, gas smokers that are very similar in cost and construction to Brinkmann and Masterbuilt. Some of their larger gas smokers include sausage hangers, jerky racks, and a two-sided combination cooking grid/rib rack. Smoke Hollow also makes one 30″ tall electric smoker, an offset smoker and a gas/charcoal combo grill and smoker that has an offset firebox on the charcoal side.
All cookers are built in China and designed to sell at entry-level price points. They are sold on-line and at various chains like Sam’s Club and Gander Mountain.
