More About the Louisiana Barrel Drum Smoker...

Traditional Charcoal Smoker

Experience this classic southern-style cooking method using this barrel smoker barbecue. When smoking, the smoke created by charcoal or wood chip fuel is what cooks the meat, with the barrel shape circulating the smoke around to ensure the food is cooked through and has a distinctive smoky flavour. Adjust or retain heat by using the side ventilation slats to let smoke out or keep it in.

Built for Big Cooking

A large total cooking area means there’s loads of room for cooking, with enough space for things like racks of ribs, roasting joints, briskets and more.  An additional upper warming rack is great for keeping cooked meats hot or warming up buns or side dishes while imbuing some of that smoky flavour. The steel racks are chrome-plated for heat resistance and are removable for cleaning.

Useful Features

Four legs with a reinforcing cross-bar keep the Lousiana barrel BBQ on strong and steady footing, so you can cook with peace of mind. An internal temperature thermometer is attached to the front of the lid so you can keep an eye on the heat, and the side ventilation is controllable through a safe tab.

Resilient Steel 

The drum and structure are made from hard-wearing steel with a black powder coating that allows it to withstand the high temperatures experienced during cooking. Steel is a durable but lightweight metal, which means the BBQ won’t be too heavy and is fully recyclable once its life comes to an end.

Below you'll find answers to the questions we get asked the most about our products.


You can adjust the heat by opening or closing the side vent on the barrel. This allows heat to escape and the inner temperature to cool or, when closed, keeps smoke and heat in meaning that the heat builds up quicker.
This drum BBQ is made from steel with a temperature-resistant black powder coating that allows the drum to withstand the heat of cooking, while also protecting it from rust and weather damage.
Yes - the lid of the BBQ is designed to be closed during cooking to create the smoking cooking effect. By closing the lid and trapping the smoke, it cooks the meat slowly and imbues it with that classic, smoky flavour.
This BBQ is suited to use charcoal as fuel as this will generate smoke. However, wood chips or other smoking fuel can be used.
Yes, the wire rack can be removed from the drum for cleaning - we recommend using hot, soapy water.
The Lousiana has an upper warming rack that sits above the main cooking area. This can be used for food that you’ve finished cooking, or for bread or side dishes you want to warm up.
The main cooking rack is large, with a total area of 71.5x36cm.
Drum or oil barrel smokers work by cooking the meat in the smoke let off by the charcoal or wood chips. While they can use direct heat to cook the food, the barrel design is well-suited to circulating the smoke through the barrel.
