    Pros - Ease of use, produces good smoke
    Cons - Bulky, No door seal,
    Great overall smoker. Have smoked chicken, pork, turkey, beef ribs, pork ribs, and brisket. I wish the door would seal better or come equipped with a seal. A lot of smokes leaks from the door. Thermometer is about 25 degrees off so I compensate using a couple oven thermometers. Those are the only shortcomings I have found with this smoker.

    Pros - Huge - Cast Iron wood box only needs 1 load - Grease Management - Did I Mention HUGE!
    Cons - Poor Door Thermometer ( Replaced with River Country Gauge )
    Can't believe the BB is only #7 - I have had 2 other propane smokers ( 1 small GOSM and 1 "other" brand ) - Have had my BB for 3 years now and LOVE IT!!!

    Had to smoke some ribs for a big charity event last weekend and with my rib racks did 12 full racks of spares ( no cutting up ) - If you cook for large events or for the freezer this cooker rocks!  9 boston butts - 4 full size packer briskets - etc.

    And the heavy cast iron wood box holds a ton of chunks ( chips if you want ) - No grease on the deck with the bottom grease catcher and deflectors.

    Don't know how the newer Landmann's are but this thing is built to last and even when I get my BGE this summer I will still keep the BB for BIG cooks.

    Pros - Holds temperature, so much room hard to fill up completely
    Cons - Vents do not completely close
    I received this as a wedding present last July. For my rehearsal dinner I smoked a 9 pound brisket, 8 racks of ribs and 10 lbs of German Sausage. It was great. I have also smoked 5 chickens at one time for a Christmas party. 

    Line the water pan with aluminum foil will really help with cleanup. Wood box is big enough that you shouldn't have to reload, after a certain point you have got all the smoke into the meat as you can. This box is big enough that if you fill with wood chunks, chunks not chips, & dry not wet (maybe 1/3 wet) you will have all the smoke you need.

    Drip pan is great. 

    Landmann is great customer service. 

    This is the unit to have for me. The propane regulates the heat, I rarely have time to monitor it as you would with just wood.

    Jim,
    Hi, review states I paid $300 ( believe it was $279 ) - It was on sale at Bass Pro Shops with free shipping when I bought it. BPS no longer carrys them.
