    Dang congrats. Thats a nice upgrade. My biggest advise is to stock up the freezer for when it gets here = D

    Thanks everybody and I will stock the freezer up. I will also post some pics of my first smoke, I haven't decided what to smoke yet though lol.

  12. I've been eyeballing them (the 48 patio), their website could use a few more pics. Is there a damper between the fire box and the smoke chamber or just the one on the fire box?

    Can you just load it up (firebox) and control the temps with the damper on the fire box? This Char Griller I have seems to have a bit of a sense of humor. [​IMG]

    The stock model does not have a damper between the firebox and cooking chamber, but Mr. Lang can put one in for you.  Mine gave a rock steady 250* but I wanted to cook at 225*.  The help I got from this site was spot on: 

    1.  Use smaller wood splits (roughly soda can diameter).  You will have to add a log a bit more often but it helps a bunch.

    2.  If getting a mobile model you can raise and lower the pitch to help with temps.

    Personally, I only use the intake side to control.  By playing with it, you will find what works best.

    No matter what, they are very easy to cook on.  My previouse unit (OK Joe w/ 1/4" tuning plates) was a breeze, but the Lang is quickly outpacing it.


  16.  Thanks Jeff.

    Congradulations! I have been looking at the same one, hopefully someday. What did shipping run you? That thing is 750lbs on the pallet!

    You're gonna love it! I got a Lang 36 last month, have only been able to use it 2x but it really did take my ribs and butt to the next level!  Enjoy!

    No damper between fire box and chamber.  2 dampers on fire box and one on my stack.  Open everything all the way up to start and about 200 F  close the firebox on one side and leave other open about an inch.  Once stable say 45-mins.  adjust the one firebox damper if needed and wait 15 mins before changing again.  I go through about 3 spits an hour once coal bed good.
