Would you buy this Lang smoker? - Page 2

What is an acceptable amount of rust I should expect on a little over one year old Lang 84?
post #22 of 37

I thought you said, he said it was kept out of the weather?  Should be surface rust only where the firebox burned the paint.  If you have rust more then skin deep it probably wasn't as well taken care of as he said it was.

I had a bolt break on my Lang Damper on the left side of the firebox.  It does happen.  It is also an easy fix.

Here's some pics I took this morning with the regular camera. There is some surface rust on it but I think the flash on the cam made it look worse. Been trying to drill out the broken bolt to one of the dampers for a while with my 18v cordless. Pain in the....! Any suggestions?

Now I gotta figure out how to take care of it and what if anything to do about the existing rust.  Should I reaseason?  Anything else?

Personally I would wire brush any rust on the inside then pressure wash it then immediately light a fire in the firebox to dry everything then I would re season it. I believe there are instructions on the Lang site on exactly how to season it. As for the outside not long ago I wire brushed my whole smoker and repainted it that would be up to you maybe just do the firebox and warming cabinet or maybe nothing at all till it gets worse than it is now.

 

As for the bolt find a friend with a set of torches or hit a local welding shop and ask them to cut it off

Thanks Pineywoods!!!

 

Would you remove the old seasoning/grease too?  I guess just soap and water???

 

Thanks,

Nick if a decent pressure washer doesn't take it off I wouldn't worry about it. I bought my Lang used as well and I did the pressure washer thing and re seasoned. On the Lang website you'll see the instructions for steam cleaning the inside using the smoker itself to do it. You can do that either after doing a smoke or before starting a smoke. Personally I leave mine dirty with all the grease protecting the everything and when I go to use it again I heat it up and scrape the big stuff then steam it. I don't use mine all the time so if I cleaned it after each use I'd still have to clean the dust and stuff off it before using it again anyhow
