Pros: Easy heat control
Cons: Shipping cost
This is the smallest smoker in the Lang family, Ben calls it a small batch cooker and says it will hold 72 lbs of meat. I upgraded to this unit from a BBQ Galore offset and it is a huge upgrade. I follow Ben's advice and get the cooker higher than my cooking temp and let the cool meat bring the temp down to what I want to cook at. It is pretty easy/simple to maintain +/- 5*F of your target cooking temperature. This is a great product and by no means is it a "small" cooker for the backyard barbecuer. Shipping prices hurt a little bit but after you have it sitting at your place and get to cooking on it, you may forget about the price.
I am double impressed that Ben went out of his way to make me a Custom 36 Patio, so I could fit it through a 32" door frame, at no extra charge, now that's customer service. I would, and plan to, order from Ben Lang again when I'm ready to add a 2nd and/or bigger smoker.
