i finally got my smoker built and modified. First one ended up returning to Costco do to damage. Second one came with a slight ding at the corner which i can live with but grease pan was missing. Called Landmann about it and got a replacement in a couple of days.





The base is a water heater stand which fits perfectly. Added wheels to push the smoker around.

Thanks eveybody for posting your mods. That help me out alot.

Finally did my first smoke. Used cherry wood. Smoke the beef and porks spare ribs for 7 hours at 225 - 230 degrees. Turned out great. Nice bark to them. Very happy with the smoker.

Just wanted to Thank all who participate in this thread! I have ordered this smoker through the Military Exchange here in Japan and expect it to arrive in about four months. The write-ups and experiences shared are excellent!! Thank you! I will continue to follow this thread so please keep it going. After I receive my Landmann I'll join in. Thanks! Newbie 😄 Carl

Could someone help me find the step down hardware I would need for the regulator. This is the one I purchased. http://www.amazon.com/Bayou-Classic-Adjustible-Regulator-Assembely/dp/B007PS0938/ref=pd_bxgy_lg_text_y

It is a 3/8 flare. I am stationed in japan and they just don't have great hardware stores here. I can't find anything to connect the two. I looked around on amazon and no luck either. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

I just received my Landmann from the BX. I'll put it together next week and see what kind of results I get. I may run into the same problem on getting low Temps and will need an adapter like you are seeking. If so, I'll see if I can help find one.

Hello Smoke N Smiles.

Just read your post concerning the Landmann 3895GWLA. I am very new to the forum. I just read your very informative article concerning this unit.

I just received mine yesterday. I am having difficulty trying to get this up to temp without catching the wood chips on fire all the time. I know there are a few quirks with it that need to be ironed out.

I have been all over this forum and your article seemed like you may have covered most of the problems that this unit may have. I believe I may have gotten through the seasoning process ok, But it seems like I have to turn it almost up to high to get it to 225-230. Also not sure about the side damper adjustment and the chimney. Just hoping you may have figured out the ailments it may have.

Presently the fire stuff is the biggest problem I'm having.  I have been smoking for a few years now and haven't had this type of problem before.

 

I would appreciate any assistance you may be willing to give me.

Thank you.

 

Have a good Halloween, Joe

Having used both the Landmann and the Camp Chef, which do you recommend to someone looking to choose between them?

 

I am looking to step up from a much smaller gas smoker to one of these.

I really like the Landmann better because of the separate drawers and interior cooking space. It's nice to be able to add water or wood without opening the main door on the cooking chamber. That way you don't lose valuable cooking temps. Happy Smoking!

Thanks for the feedback.  I ended up letting price/shipping availability finalize my decision, as I really liked both.  I ended up getting the Camp Chef, which will be here this week.  Hopefully it works well.

I am currently shopping for a gas smoker for my dad for the holidays. He has always been into grilling and very experienced in that aspect, but this will be his first smoker owned. I had already narrowed down between the Smoke Vault and Landmann through my last week of research. Luckily for me I find someone that happens to own both. He will be smoking anything and everything, fish, chicken, ribs, you name it. And it looking to making it his new hobby. Altitude and extreme weather isn't a factor for him since he lives in Southern CA. Between the two smokers, which do you favor/suggest?
