After many months of looking on this fantastic forum, I finally got around to becoming a member!! I currently have a Brinkman Smoke N Pit and basically all that has done is infect me with the curse that is smok'n good grub....and tick me off with temp controls.
As of late, I have been perusing the idea of a custom build, to begin entering the competition circuit, street side vendor, catering....who knows the opportunity that lies ahead. A good friend of mine has all the welding equipment, but between his work schedule, mine, family, solar eclipse, the end of the Myan calendar approaching soon.....I have been looking very very seriously at the Lang line of products and feel fairly confident that their cookers can help me achieve my dream and vision of success in this wacky world of smoking meats. My current vision is the Lang 84 backed with the Lang 60, triple sink, beer keg, chargrill up front, commercial grade fridge....all trailer mounted and city approved, but I think I may start a thread in the correct area to discuss this configuration.
I'm very excited to start building relationships and sharing ideas within the good group that makes SMF.
