    Ive been smoking for a few years and want to move up to a good backyard smoker.  I have been looking at three smokers but am open to suggestions.  The three Im looking at are; Lang patio 36,  Meadow creek SQ 36, and the American BBQ systems -  All American model.   Any experience any one has had, on these or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  I want to keep cost around $1500 including shipping.   Thanks

    First off, welcome to SMF!  Glad you joined our group.  Its a very friendly community of smoking enthusiasts who enjoy sharing and helping one another.  Looking forward to you input here, and just ask when you need anything...someone here will surely have the answer. 

    I don't have direct experience with the rigs you mentioned, but I know they all have the reputation of being great products.  You probably couldn't go wrong with any of those.  There are a number of Lang owners who are members here, so you'll likely get plenty of practical advice by asking this question over in the wood smokers forum.

    Good luck!  Be sure and let us know which smoker you decide on.
