Landmann Vertical Gas Smoker Review

Really Good for Its Price

The following are my thoughts on the Landmann Smoky Mountain Vertical Gas Smoker. In my opinion, it is one of the best smokers in its price range. I have been using it for almost two years and it’s been pretty good so far. It’s expensive but I think it is well worth the cost.

The Following are, in My Mind, Its Best Qualities

  • IT’S HUGE, NOT KIDDING: Some of the best gas smokers I have seen are generally the bigger ones. Yes they cost me a few extra bucks but it means added quality. This vertical smoker has a smoking chamber that can fit a full size brisket. That’s usually enough to feed the entire family during weekends.
  • ACCESS DRAWERS: Unlike the other propane smokers I have seen, this one incorporates access drawers to the wood chip box and water pan. You can add water and wood chips while keeping the door of the smoking chamber closed.
  • SOLID CONSTRUCTION: Overall, with one caveat (see my downside complaint below), this propane gas smoker is well built. The firebox is pretty solid too. I also like the temperature control features (vents and chimney). They help make smoking meats a lot easier for the average joe.

  • This vertical gas smoker has the following dimensions: 26” x 21” x 47.2”. Its total weight is 92.6 pounds. Its smoking chamber provides users with a total of 1,756 square inches of cooking space.
  • This Landmann gas smoker features a solid steel construction. The wood chip box and the water pan are also made out of steel; note that the pan is porcelain coated. Smoker is equipped with brass burner and cap. This smoker also features a rotary igniter.
  • Access drawers are also added to this propane smoker to allow access to wood chip box and water pan without disturbing the main smoking box. The 3895GWLA is also equipped with side damper vents, top chimney, and temperature gauge at the door, which allows users to control the smoking temperature a lot better.
  • This gas smoker has an overall sturdy and balanced design. You don’t have to worry about the smoker tipping over with strong winds. Great for outdoor use.

I don’t really have a lot of negatives to mention about this Landmann Smoky Mountain. I guess a lot of gas smoker reviews have mentioned my only beef with this smoker: the magnetic closures for the door gave way after a year of use. I guess the magnetic closure was kind of flimsy.

I used to tie it up with a cord to keep it closed but doing that was too tedious. So, I hired someone to replace the magnetic closing system (it’s pretty much like the ones used for a small fridge). That’s the only downside I can mention about my Landmann Smoky Mountain. Overall, I think it’s a pretty good appliance – really worth the money.
