    New member in Grapevine, TX

    Hello All

    I've been meaning to join for a while and finally took the plunge. With a 3 and 5 year old, I don't have time for a lot of long cooks so I use my PK 360 and/or Kettle for both grilling and smoking. I've been grilling for a long time but got the bug for low and slow about 5 years ago and I find myself enjoying it more and more as time goes by.

    That said, I thought it was time to take the next step so, after a lot of research (online research is brutally annoying imo), I moved forward on a Lang 36" Hybrid. It was just delivered a few days ago. I know pellet smokers are all the rage right now but I really enjoy the whole process of keeping a clean fire and maintaining temp control. I feel like I have my PK and Kettle pretty dialed in although there's also plenty of room for improvement. Pork butts, ribs, ribeyes, fish and vegetables are my most common cooks but I'm expecting that to change now that I have my new toy. But I've also braced myself for a substantial learning curve with my first stick burner.

    Looking forward to lots of back and forth with everybody!

    Welcome from TN. We like pics, so when you get a minute, post some of that new Lang. And whatever you turn out on any of the cookers.

      Welcome from the California Delta. I like the way you think; just jump in the deep end. Hear nothing but good about the Lang smokers.
      Like mentioned above, let's see some pictures please.

          Welcome to The Pit. There are a lot of people here that burn sticks and all are very willing to help. My first tip is a small hot fire produces the best smoke. A larger fire damped down to maintain a temp will not produce that great smoke.

              Doesn't get a whole lot nicer than that. With the off-road package even!
