    Am looking at buying a new trailer smoker and am looking closely at a Lang. For my budget I think they are excellent but would like to know everybody's opinion or suggest another brand .

    Thank You Buddy

    Langs are pretty good. Check out Shirley Fabrication. More room and bang for the buck...IMHO. There is about a year wait list.

    Buddy I have a lang84 and its performs awesome just like they claim! Very solid build. I use it year round. My only grip is its heavy and can not push it around the yard so I have to hook up the truck to fine tune the spot I want it in. I am thinking about putting a wheel up front to see if that helps. I have fed hundreds of people off that rig in rain or shine! Make sure you got a good hook up on wood...I go thru a lot and being picky about what wood I want burn sometimes get me in a jam. Ritchie

    I had a 36 patio that worked great a`s Al said. Sold it and got a 60D for the extra room. It's just the right size for home cooking and some larger cooks.
    Go 84 or bigger if you plan many really big cooks.
    I'm sure the SF cookers are great but the 18 month wait and non-refundable deposit were show stoppers for me. The Lang wait was 4 weeks and they are only 100 mile from me.
    You won't go wrong with a Lang of any size IMO.

    I have looked a lot of stick burners! Peoria Custom Cookers would be my choice hands down!

    Love my Lang. When I upgrade smokers, it'll be another Lang (just a bigger one)!

    I’m in the market for a new stick burner and I like the looks of the Peoria Custom Cookers too. Trying to figure out how I’m going to pay for and get it to Ohio!

    Depends on what your cooking plans are. The 60D will hold a bunch of meat. I believe the 84 is more for someone running a catering or restaurant business.

    I would get the 84D...sides and chicken take up a lot of room.

    It's nice to have some room to spread out especially if your looking at catering or pre-order stuff.
    Decent size warmer " 3 full pans" which comes in handy.
