Landmann 38 Inch Gas Smoker

LANDMANN IS OUT OF BUSINESS IN THE USA.

The Landmann (aka Great Outdoors) 38″ Two Drawer Gas Vertical Smoker features a cast brass burner with rotary ignition. Lightweight construction gives a flimsey feel to this cooker. The main door uses magnets instead of a latch and there is no insulation. It has two separate drawers: one for the porcelain coated water pan, the other for a steel wood chip box. The drawers enable you to replenish wood and water without opening the smoke box. It comes with five chrome plated cooking racks. There is a chimney with damper on top and two side dampers as well.

We often hear owners of inexpensive vertical BBQ smokers complain about poor workmanship, bent parts, bad welds, doors that don’t seal and smoke leaking all over. In moderate weather, these issues may work in your favor because we find many gas smokers have difficulty holding low smoking temps of 225 degrees and this model has a 16,000 BTU burner to goose temps up when necessary. These leaky, un-insulated cookers get hot on the outside, especially the bottom, so use a grill mat to protect your deck. We also hear that grease accumulates in the bottom and drips down the legs.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can’t help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
