I received my Lang 36!!! Looks like I get to be the first to test out the newest edition of the 36 with the added tire heat shields.
Glad you got it, did you ask for the heat shield or did they decide the 36 needed it? I haven/t noticed any problems but it may be something I will have to look for next time I light er up. Welcome to the club!
They decided the 36 needed it. The tires get pretty dang hot. Thanks!
Congratulations. I am a Lang lover also. But I cant for the life of me see how those are going to keep the tires cool unless it is moving and you are relying on the bernoulli principal. I guess I don't understand, looks more like a wind break for the air intake vent. but I trust what Ben builds, he makes a heck of a cooker
The only thing I can imagine is if the wind is blowing the heat out of the baffels? I would think that the convection heat out of the box will heat the tires more then anything else. I will have to check the temp on the tires, maybe a simple piece of plywood layed on top of the tires will block the heat. Can't remember ever seeing the flame actually "licking" out of the baffels.
Congrats on the smoker If the number of people buying the 36 on this forum is an indication of the number of 36s Ben Lang is selling it looks like it's a pretty successful model. Maybe time for a
"what did you put in your 36 thread?"
Congrats on the new smoker. I hope to have one just like it fired up in my backyard within the next 2 weeks. Can't wait. Did you drive down to pick it up or have it delivered? If it was delivered, how much was the cost to Carrolton? I'm just south of ATL and am planning to go get it next week, but if the price is right maybe I'll just have it shipped.
