This will be one of those reviews where I wish I could do a half star. If I could, I would probably put this unit at the 3.5 range in the early going. I bought this about 6 months ago. After a couple "test meals" I have used it on one half-week camping trip and a few more times when too lazy to light the coals on my big grill. When feasible I will always go to charcoal for grilling but I have occasion to try to travel light for camping/fishing trips and a unit like this comes in pretty handy for the portability and convenience, but I digress! My take:

Build quality: Quite decent for the price range. I compared it side to side with a unit my father-in-law paid triple the cost for. The 300 dollar unit had nicer stainless steel and was somewhat beefier but I don't see it lasting NEAR 3 times as long as this unit will.

Overall design: The unit is well thought out for the most part The legs fold under nicely and the lid latches down well. In this position it is fairly comfortable to carry, to the extend you ever will. If I have a gripe here it is that the drip pan doesn't latch closed and it can slid around on you when carrying the unit.

Functionality: I have had some successes and some failures with the unit. I am not overly thrilled with the temperature range. All the way from high to low seems to be about 100 degrees of range, which will naturally be affected by ambient temp. I attempted to do a tri-tip roast on it on the Oregon Coast in rainy weather and I basically ruined a good piece of meat because it got away from me too quickly. However, I've had great success with burgers, pork chops, and chicken breasts, which is more like what you SHOULD be doing on a unit like this anyway. After about 12-15 meals that I've done to date, the piezo igniter failed, which, in my experience, is what piezo igniters do, which brings me to....

Customer service: I called the company on Monday about the failed igniter. A lady who's FIRST language is English answered the telephone in a voice I could understand and without me having to press any additional buttons and listen to any MUZAK. It took me about 5 minutes to explain my problem, give her the purchase date, and have a new igniter on the way. Today is Thursday and I just finished installing the new igniter. Therefore, I put customer service at a FAT A+, hence the half star over rather than under! :)

This is the second small grill that I have purchased, the first being the Cuisinart CGG-180T. The difference is substantial. The Cuisinart gave up the ghost after one season, in all fairness I was using it more frequently that it was probably intended for. The Smoke Hollow is a bit larger, but the single biggest advantage I have seen is the heat output. At 10,000 BTU, this grill is almost double the 5,500 BTU of the Cuisinart. What this means is a faster warm-up, and significantly shorter cooking times. Steaks are ready to serve in almost half the time, and chicken breasts are no longer the exercise in patience that they were previously. If you are doing burgers and dogs,the Cuisinart is ok, but once the cooking grate is full, expect things to slow way down. The Smoke Hollow also has a warming rack in addition to the main grill surface. One thing that was frustrating with the Cuisinart is that the cook surface was comprised of flat metal with slots, as opposed to a traditional wire grill. Cleaning burnt bbq sauce was pretty much impossible. Construction of the grill is nice, assembly is idiot-proof, the stainless looks wonderful, and the handle is large enough to make carrying comfortable. The $10.00 cost difference is money well spent. I'm heading out for a three day camping trip shortly after I finish this review, and am looking forward to firing this grill up tonight to make dinner! I can recommend this unit without hesitation, buy one, you won't regret it.

Excellent grill!! Heats up nicely and cooks food perfectly! We bought this grill for our boat and it's just what we wanted. Would highly recommend it!

Cant say enough about this grill. I bought it solely to go to the Penguins vs Flyers Stadium Series game at Heinz Field, and it was such a wise investment. Cooked burgers and dogs in a short amount of time, evenly, and locks in place when you want to pack it up. You will not be disappointed.

Love most everything about this grill with the exception of 2 things. The striker is at the opposite end of the gas input which means that the gas has to travel across the unit for the striker to light. Don't do this! Spare your arm hair and use a traditional lighter instead. The other issue is that the gas input sticks out really far. It make packing it in the car difficult. Still, it works and I cook a lot of hot dogs and burgers on it.

This replaced an old broken tabletop grill. I love the stainless.throughout. the thermometer is accurate and the grill heats evenly. Large grill grate and warming rack round out the features for a pleasant, portable grilling experience

I love it. It's a perfect size for us when camping. I cooked six burgers with plenty of room to spare. The only drawback is that it cooks a lot hotter on one side than the other.

Bought for my husband and it is perfect for tailgating and for camping. It's compact enough it doesn't take up a lot of space but it makes a lot of food I love it

Good grill. Some cool spots as expected on a small grill, but has lots of cooking space. Solid build, and great as a small grill to pack for trips.

Great grill.....only used it twice...but so far it's really what I wanted. Doesn't take up alot of room...but has the cooking room I need! Seems to be made good, Stainless Steel!
