    Smoking in West Texas

    Hello, just joined up. I smoked some ribs on my weber genesis this weekend for the first time. Much to my suprise they turned out better than i thought... it was kinda a spring board for me. Now i'm eyeing a lang 36" offset. Glad I stumbled on this site looking over reviews for offset smokers. I'm sure glad to be here. Thanks in advance for all the info that ya'll share.

          Fluvanna.... up on the caprock. We travel up to Lubbock about once a month. You know of anyone up there that builds reverse offsets up that way? I was looking at a Lang... but they wanted $500 for shipping. Sure be nice to be able to just pick one up.

          Lineman7 go check out The "OutDoor Chef" 8802 us-87 Lubbock Tx 79423 They don't have any Lang's That I have ever seen but they do carry some well made Off sets. They can probably get a Lang for you, but not 100% sure.

            Welcome to The Pit. Before you get that next cooker, ask yourself a few questions:

            How much do you want to spend, (or how much can you get away with... ).
            How many people will you be cooking for - just a single family, or larger gatherings.
            How much work do you want to put into your cooks - tending anywhere from every .5 hours to (almost) set and forget.
            What are you going to cook - it looks like you are headed towards longer cooks, but will you need to sear a steak or burger perhaps.
            How much smoke flavor do you want. Pellet grills have less while stick burners have more. Charcoal might go either way.

            You also need to add $$ for quality digital thermometers into your budget. A quick read digital probe is considered the minimum by most here. And a model with at least two leave in probes will make you life much easier.

            Good luck.

              Awesome thank you for the head scratchers. I live out in the country and spend my weekends around the house and playing with kids. I'm wanting to use wood, that's why i'm looking at reverse offset. I don't mind checking it every once in a while.

                  If you do decide on a stick burner, Lang or something else get ready for a lot of work. I love my Lang and also love the way meat tastes when cooked on it but it is a lot of work from splitting wood to tending the fire when you are cooking on it. I was not quite prepared for how much work it is when I am using it. Good luck with what ever you go with and welcome to the pit where you can find advise on all things BBQ.
