My name is David Haskett and I live in Callahan, Florida. I am a 28 ½ year Veteran of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office in the capacity of a Corrections Sergeant. I have been outdoor-cooking since I was a child in the Boy Scouts. Of course it has gotten more elaborate as I got older. I am still active in the Boy Scouts and love teaching this craft to the young boys of our Troop. I am retiring in 22 months and am planning on adding to my large supply of cookers and grills as a gift to myself. I will be purchasing a Lang 60 or 84 with all the bells and whistles. Between researching the Lang Cookers and reading posts in this forum I now want a new cooker now, so I plan to purchase a Lang 48 Deluxe within a couple of months. I am so ready to get back to low and slow smoking and try some of the great recipes I have read on this site. Thanks to each of you that post here.
