I’ve been on the lookout for a great deal on a nice sized stick burner for man y months. Mostly focused on Lang with a few looks at Meadowcreek and Slingnsteel. I got outgunned on at least 6 when I thought too long. Finally saw this Lang pop up just a couple hours south of me. Advertised as a Lang 60 Deluxe. Turns out it’s a Gen 1 Lang 84 Deluxe. It needs some TLC, especially on the firebox but all appears to be surface rust. Put some new tires on it since it still had the original tires from the late 80’s. They were still holding air solid but looked to have a lot of cracks. I decided to risky for a two hour haul. I may have this sandblasted next week and painted soon thereafter. Most rust is very light except the firebox. Looking forward to learning the stick burner game. Top pic of the warmer box is in the sellers drive when I looked at it. The other two are it sitting in its new home in our drive for now.

Heck yeah man that’s a beautiful beast! Congrats!!
It’s in really good shape too, doesn’t look too bad at all. That thing will look sweet when you get a new coat on it.

Congratulation!!! That's gonna be a beauty. Of course, the downside is that you'll have to take out a 2nd mortgage if you ever decide to fill it. LOL

70’s Oh wow. Those tires had to be bad. Lang started in 1988 I thought. Congratulations

Looks great. Glad you finally got ya a stick burner. I didn’t realize Lang has been making smokers since the 70’s.Maybe this will motivate TNJAKE TNJAKE to finally get the BelFab out of the barn and break it in.

Yea I think the tire shop was wrong about the tire age. Smoker is likely from the late 80’s It is an early gen where you can see they patched the tank on top. Tires were F-78-15-ST

Thats a bias ply tire size. Nothing to do with age. The DOT number has the year the tire was made in. Not sure bias ply tires have DOT numbers thou.

It was the guy in the Walmart tire shop that told me they don’t use that nomenclature anymore. The new tires were only $149 for a pair so not too bad anyway.

I got some bias tires on one of my old trucks in the barn I will check for a DOT number. Yes tires usually have DOT followed by month and year.
