Very Happy So Far

Posted

Pros: Cost and Size

Cons: Slight Grease Leaks

  I’ve only used the smoker a few times now, but have been very pleased so far and the cost vs. value cannot be beat. There have been comments on the net that the Walmart version is not the same as comes direct from Landman. Landman said the 3405BGW at Walmart is the EXACT same product they sell. Walmart (and others) buy in bulk and hence the cheaper price. The construction material  is the same as it is the SAME product. The Price was dropped from $159 as Landman is discontinuing the 3405BGW and replacing it with the 3495BGW. The difference is the Walmart version has a smaller smoker box (from what I can tell from the picture). The water pan is the same. I can buy a large...

Pros: easy to use

Cons: Limited space

This is my first smoke and I like it so far.  Seams to be easy to use but I am having trouble dialing in the tepm to stay were I want it.  Very happy with it though.

For the money, outstanding

Pros: Inexpensive, handles full rack of ribs, stable

Cons: regulator freezes up in cold weather, needs insulation to control temperature fluctuations, need pan to manage grease

For the money, great smoker.  Needs modifications (like most steel box smokers) to improve the temperature control (insulation, etc.,.).  The GOSM "Big Block" has the drip pan and lips to manage grease - this unit does not.  Without a pan, grease pools in bottom and runs down legs - you can mitigate this by inexpensive foil pan to catch grease.  You can smoke 6 full racks of ribs flat, 12 with rib racks.  Note: 18,000 BTU brass burner is same as "Big Block."

Pros: small light weight but hoolds temp really good

Cons: not having 2 of them

I have one of theses smokers. Now I just use it for sausage and bacons but for yearsit was my work horse smoker. I used it for years and to great results. It held temp really good and I did replace the chip pan to a larger pan. I you want to learn to smoke or just smoke some small meals this is you smoker.

For the money great product

Pros: Very portable and lots of room compared to smaller units of the same manufacture

Cons: None for what it is

I recieved this from wife and children for Fathers day. I also have the smaller version but was disapointed when I started doing briskets. This larger model is awsome for briskets and anything short of a half a hog that I smoke. The smaller unit had to have a 10" cast iron skillet to replace the chip box. The newer larger unit has a reasoably sized cast iron pan stock that does the job fine. The only negative I can say is with the smoker likes to be full. It just seems to smoke better at a more even temp than when it only has one piece of meat in it. Would also be nice if they would just go ahead and put a finer gas control on these stock. The stock valve is fine, I just like to dial...
