Barbecues: Compare features & prices Landmann Oil Drum Barbecue review

The Landmann Grill Chef Oil Drum Barbecue is a large, open-grill charcoal barbecue that cooks a lot of traditional barbecue fare. It doesn't have a hood, so you can't roast food, and there are no high-spec features to shout about; it's what you'd expect of a typical charcoal barbecue and has everything you need to grill food outside. But does its cooking performance outweigh its no-frills design? And is it a Best Buy? We put it to the test to find out.

Barbecue reviews you can trust
