They say it will run at least 10 hours on a 1 lb cylinder.  I have one and love it.  It is in my camper.  I use a 20 lb tank and adapter so I never am concerned about running out.  I have a propane tree that allows me to connect several devices to a single cylinder....  Get them at a sporting goods store or Wal Mart.

X2 on about 10 hrs. Any more and your gonna want to have a spare bottle ready. The propane units are great, they just require a little more tending than the electric units, the burners tend to go out in wind so you can't venture too far away from them. Its much better to retro fit them for a 20Lb BBQ tank if possible. Temp control is a little more difficult also because they are pretty much Hi/Low, once you get used to them there is a "grey area" in the gas valve to fine tune them. I love mine for the lake. Just not a set it and forget it kind of unit.

My 2 cents

Looked at them before I bought my OBS. Looked pretty cheap. Just checked and amazon has them for around 68.00. May have to rethink it. Might be nice to have one in the Motor home. Cover warranty says 6 months you get to with it and 3 extra only 18.00. All in all can't see how you could lose. I mean it wouldn't be as be good as home but an acceptable smoker rather than transporting mine. How long does the batteries last in the SG?

If you don't forget to turn off the puck advancer :-[. Mine lasted all summer, or in Canada 6 months.

My batteries last a while, IF you remember to take them out when you put it away.

Otherwise, the advance button gets bumped and you have dead batteries next time you use it.
