Hi, new the the forums, but had a couple questions about reverse flow smokers. Used the search bar for a while to no avail also. ok, I know this has been discussed a thousand times here, but looking at getting a reverse flow smoker. Lang is in the running, and I know how everyone feels about them, they look like great smokers, and they're trailer mounted. I'm trying not to spend over 4 grand on my smoker as well, but if its exactly what i want, maybe a little more. The other one that I have been looking at is the East Texas Smoker Company. They are a hair more expensive, but they are located about 30 minutes from me (huge plus as apposed to in Georgia for Lang's). The other thing that I like about the east texas smoker company is that it comes on a full sized trailer, although it doesn't look as nice if not tricked out, it does leave room for me though if I want to add on more options, like a charcoal grill on the back side, or a deep fryer/propane burners. I know these are options that can be added to it there, but the price starts jumping significantly if you do.
So also for what I do with my smoker, I don't do competitions, and not particularly interested in them, just don't have time for that. I do though end up doing the meat for any where from 30-150 people 3-4 times a year. This means that I would end up probably going with the lang 60 if I got it as opposed to the RK250.
So to the heart of the question, has anybody had any experience with the East Texas Smoker Company that would give me reason to use them for my smoker, or to steer away from them. Thanks, Zack
