I will be ordering a lang 36 patio by the end of the week. However I can't decide between the original or the deluxe with warmer box. Is the deluxe with warmer box worth it? Can you cook inside the warmer box?

Thanks! I ordered the 36 deluxe today!I have a 36" patio (no warmer) but when they delivered is last month they had a few deluxe and hybrids on the trailer. The warming box seemed small but I guess it would serve a purpose.If i didn't also have a cookshack cs-025 I thing would have bought it. You can get the 'high heat' option which are vents (with pin wheel cutoffs) into the warmer box from the fire box instead of from just the main cooking compartment. This would give you much more options for cooking.
Jim,I smoked a precooked ham in the warmer box today at less than 200 degrees for about 3 hours today and it came out great. I had them put 3 racks in it instead of 2 and upgraded to stainless steel racks for $200. I have cooked 12 racks of ribs for a tailgate party by splitting the rib racks into thirds and rotating them. The warmer box is about 25-50 cooler but works great.
I have cooked brats, sausage, and baked beans in the warmer box. It really gives you a lot of versatility.
