Need Immediate Help! Talk me out of a Lang 36 Original Patio smoker.

    I'm sure it's just spring fever that has me deliriously considering a Lang 36 Original Patio smoker. I live 115 miles from Lang, so driving down there with my trailer to pick one up wouldn't be a problem. So, please, if anyone could just talk me down off the ledge it would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a cheap side firebox smoker grill that is a better grill than it is a smoker, but it smokes just fine. I won't need a new smoker until it eventually rusts out (it's under a shelter so that could take years). I looked at them last year, and they have gone up in price. Steel isn't getting any cheaper and I can only see them going higher every year. See how this works? I'm asking for someone to talk me out of it while talking myself into it.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one that has been through this. Please help.

    I say just go ahead and get it, or look for a used one to help justify the purchase. Lang makes a great smoker, you won't regret it... well you may regret not getting the 48, but that's a different story.

    I'd say you're crazy. You have a smoker that's similar in size. Getting a new Lang 36 just doesn't make sense.
    What you need is a Lang 36 STRETCH.
    Those things look awesome. You can get a smallish whole pig in there or enough ribs to feed the whole neighborhood.

    I think we need to start a new "Group" category. Call it Smokers Anonymous, because this is not helping!

    When I said, "Talk me out of a Lang Original Patio smoker.", I meant talk me out of a Lang smoker PERIOD. Not encourage me to purchase a more expensive version. It's becoming very clear that you shouldn't go to forum full of smoking fanatics looking for someone to talk you out of a new smoker.

    Sure you are not looking for more reasons to convince the lady of the house why you should make this purchase?

    You make an excellent point; all I need to do is show her this thread and she'd think I would be stupid not to get one.....Wouldn't she?
