    Meadow Creek Reverse flows, Anyone own one?

    They are a copy of Ben Langs smokers, but have some design changes. Anyone here have one? I never see pics of them except at i-net dealers who sell em......

    There is a guy from here, he goes by Rag, he has a 250 I think, it is about the same as the Lang 84 with a few different options. I have seen it when I went to see him in PA. to pick up my 60 mobile from him. Maybe you could PM him and ask about it. I am sure he would reply.

  8. Don't own one, but wish I could afford one. I took a class before the New Holland Summerfest and we cooked on a TS250. Very high quality construction. I just wish I had the scratch to pick one up.

    See Meadowcreek's add in the KCBS "BullSheet" every month. Rather have a Lang, both for construction AND $!

    What do the Amish know bout "Q"? ( I can say that cause they aint here readin this stuff ).( Oh wait, thats TV. )

    Wasnt that a garden sprayer? Certainly not food grade plastic.
     
  15. I have a Meadowcreek TS120P reverse flow. Unbelievable build quality. I am not ignorant enough to say it makes better Q than someone else's Lang. Or that it is BETTER than some other because I have one. Nor will I say Southerners can make this or that because I happen to live up north. All I can say is on weekends around my place, nobody goes hungry and Famous Dave's is not considered good Q at my house.
     
     
  16. I was in Walnut Creek, Ohio this past weekend, the heart of Amish country and I seen an Amish man smoking some ribs on a meadow creek reverse flow. Let me tell you that is one fine smoker. I know now why they are so expensive, the quality of this rig is out of this world. The guy noticed me admiring his smoker and asked if I wanted to try a sample of his ribs. For those of you wondering if Amish know how to make good Que, the answer is HELL YES THEY DO, they was some of the best ribs I've ever had. After talking with him for a while about his rig he asked me if I wanted to see his other meadow creek cookers. He took me inside of his building where he had an 8 ft chicken cooker, and a whole pig roaster. I liked the fact that all three of these cookers had stainless steel cooking grates, other brand cookers don't even offer that. I would definitely pay alittle more cash for alot better quality.
     
  17. I feel that the Meadow Creek smokers are the finest smokers on the market.  I have built many smoker pits in my time and just about every "name brand" pit I look at, I see workmanship or design flaws that stand out to me as a builder that most people do not see.

    The only thing I would change about the Meadow Creek smoker is the design of the firebox and how they lay out their trailers, its not a workmanship issue, just a design preference, thats all. They have already switched over to new style grates and are making their doors wider now.
     
  18. I`m going to go look at one in july .I want the ts250 with the add on chicken cooker.I`VE  gone nuts over this decision but I`m going to buy the Meadow Creek.Can pick it up at youders smokey mountain bbq in pikeville ten.I only want to do this one time.
     
  19. I have the Meadowcreek TS120P myself. It has been a joy to cook with and I have made some folks quite happy as a result. Here are some examples of some cooks lately. While a dozen racks is a perfect fit, loading her up with too many butts can create airflow challenges resulting in slower than expected cook times. It holds just the right temp if you burn wood. Start with charcoal and add  a split of your favorite wood every half hour or so. Long cooks I will add charcoal (a little I mean) a couple times over 12 hours like when doing brisket. These grates clean up super easy since they are stainless and not extruded steel racks ( for all you Lang lovers who enjoy trying to clean yours up even close to original shape). Not knocking Lang on ability to cook Q. Just like a cleaner rig to serve others from. This is a year old now and used often. Still cleans up nice. I did 2 years of searching, planning a custom build, being let down by builders and finally went to Meadowcreek. Not one issue. Nada. And I cook all winter up here in Northern Wisconsin. Thow a wool blanket over the tank in the wind. It will cook like its July.
