Landmann USA manufactures a variety of fire-related products, including outdoor fireplaces, grills, and smokers. The Landmann Black Dog BD 28 Charcoal Grill looks like a sturdy contender for your backyard BBQ needs, but construction is pretty cheap and it’s hard to put together. Be that as it may, the BD28 features a spacious 506 square inches of cooking area. The steel base and frame range from 0.08 to 1.0 mm thick and the lid is 1.2 mm thick. The clearance between cooking surface and lid is 19 inches, meaning you should have no problems putting your turkey in easily, and the adjustable height charcoal grate can be cranked up and down within a 12″ range giving you good temperature control. There are big front doors for adding charcoal, a large easy to remove ash pan, vents for air exhaust but not for air intake, and one side shelf. The grates are porcelain coated, which is very nice, but as always, the heat indicator in the lid is inaccurate. Get yourself a digital thermometer.
Black Dog can be purchased with an offset firebox for about $100 more.
