Need help buying a propane smoker

post #1 of 6

What propane smoker is the best to buy. I never had one before and would like some input for the pros. Thanks

I'm kind of partial to the GOSM 3605BGD by Landmann because I have one I suppose.  Not sure what size you're looking for but the 3605BGD is huge (1257 sq. inches cooking area) with 4 racks and is wide enough (29") that you won't have to cut or roll anything to get it to fit.  Bass Pro Shop did stock them for $199 but I'm not sure they do any longer.  The Landmann website now has them markdown from $480 to $300.  If you can find a third party vendor that still carries them you should be able to get it near the BPS price.

I have a GOSM and was wanting to buy the bigger one next week and it doesn't look like Bass Pro carries them anymore. I'm looking at the Smokevault from Gander Mountain on sale right now for $249 or the Masterbuilt Extra Wide for $199 from Bass Pro

 

Here's the links

Now I have a GOSM and now a smoke vault 24" and I like it. It's big enough to lay a full rack of spares on the shelf and not have to watch how you put it in the smoker. I use mine alot maybe 2-3 times a week now days and it goes right on smoking without any trouble too.

I have the GOSM 3605BGD  that Dean suggested and absolutely love it.  I got mine from Bass Pro before they stopped stocking them though.  Now here's hoping that the movers packed it right and it makes it here to Italy in once piece icon_neutral.gif

Does the GOSM 3605BGD hold the heat well, and is the temp. easy to adjust? I am planing on using this mostly for bacon and jerky. Is it good for this?
