    I see everyone else's equipment and I am amazed at what products are available. There are some serious "smokers" out there.

    I asked about "tag lines" earlier so I could list some of mine. The latest addition is a new Lang 84, ordered 4 weeks back and picked up Saturday. It's seasoned now and ready for my first smoke.

    We are leaving Friday for a short camping trip at a nearby lake, but when I return, I'm going to give it a try.

    Thanks to all that make this website/forum what it is...

    You Lucky B***xrd!! Can't wait to see the pics. I am intersested in how Ben configures his gas option, so, if you can, could you take detailed some pics of her for me?

    You must be excited, any questions, I have a 60 that works in a similar way, just smaller:)

    Tow it with you to the camp site and break it in there. You will be the most popular camper in the campground when they smell the meat!

    Have fun.

    Hi Smok'n Steve,

    Lang no longer uses "tanks" for his newer smokers. He rolls his own 1/4" steel, which gives a bit more cooking space, approximately 12". A true 84x30 on the model84, less the distance for the reverse flow as you know.

    With the gas option, there are 3-50k btu burners (2 on the 60), centered with a damper for each through the bottom of the smoker. The pipe extends downward approx 8" under each burner for that purpose. The damper between the firebox and smoker is removed to allow for the end burner. It's an interesting setup, at an added cost of 705.00.

    I haven't fired up the gas as I wanted to season first with wood. The seasoning went well and by raising or lowering the front of the smoker, currently +2", I was able to get the end temps within 1-2 degrees. I was amazed at how fast the temp got to 250, with only 5 stick of wood. I added 1 small stick every 30-40 minutes and maintained 250 for hours.

    I used oak and pecan to season. My first cook will be with hickory and pecan. No particular reason for this choice, that's just what I have on hand.

    Thanks Davis-S for the explanation on the gas option---man, still have to see it though:) If you ever get a chance, a pic or two would be cool.

    Sounds like a really nice smoker!!!
