I like the twin stainless stack option on the PCC cooker. Neat feature of being able to turn them so the wind doesn't affect their draft, plus, them being at two levels makes for ultimate control. It would take a lot of trial and error to master coordinating them, but should work like a champ once you do. "Course I'm far from an expert, but that smoker really appeals to me more than the Lang. Now if they just made a reverse flow model! (AND i won the lotto;-)I want to keep the price as close to $2500 as possible. With shipping, the Lang 48 would be $2400. PCC emailed me the list of options and prices, and for the same price I can get an insulated fire box and pneumatic tires on the PCC. The adjustable baffle would be awesome to have, but it's an extra $300. So I can pick up the PCC the next time I visit family in the area for the same price after all is said and done as getting a Lang shipped. But like you said, the attention to detail (oil impregnated hinges) puts the PCC in the lead for which I will buy next spring...hopefully. I may start a thread just to see if anyone has a PCC backyard model they can give some input on. There are plenty of Lang owners on these forums who can give testimony for theirs, but not as many for PCC.
I never used a RF, so the PCC would be more normal to me than a Lang. However, I wouldn't mind learning it if I bought a Lang!!
Jambo has a reputation for being top notch, and their fireboxes on the same size pits are the same as PCC. May be an overkill a bit, but it works and I won't argue with them :)
The wife likes the PCC as well, simply because it loos "cooler and meaner" than the Lang, haha.
