    Hmmm... you have a MC BX50, which is a sweet unit, but having problems maintaining a constant temp. Even with an ATC. And you think the Lang will solve your problems. It won’t. Lang is a great product. I have a Jambo. An offset is all hands on. You have to manage that fire from beginning to end. No ATC’s with offsets.

    If I had to smoke/BBQ all my meat on my Jambo, it would drive me crazy. Learn to use your MC, buy a PBC, and save yourself some cash......IMHO.

    I hate to bring an old post back from the dead but just got a BX50 myself yesterday and the owner of Smoke n Dudes BBQ was very specific about "make sure your smoker is level or water from the pan will wind up in your fire box" . As mine sits on some pavers I needed to raise the right side about 3/8" on the right side by using a scrap cut from an old outdoor weather mat. Hope maybe this helps if you still have your BX50 or anyone else having a similar problem.

    Call Meadow Creek. You should be able to make that smoker hum! Lang is also excellent and the 48" Deluxe can hook up to a trailer hitch for mobility.

    dirtybird37 that sounds frustrating. I guess if you think you can get $2700 for your Meadow Creek then it's a straight trade so it makes sense to me. That said, I like what Pirate Scott said. Also, I wonder if there are some easy mods that would fix the difficulties you're having. At $300 the PBC is a no-brainer so I might get one and try to figure out how to make the MC work. I don't recall seeing anyone on this forum who has one though, sorry.

    I love my Lang 48 deluxe! I don't know where you live but if he live close to me I would be more than happy to pay him $2700 for it.

    Can you get some Support on your current Smoker? Looks pretty awesome, should be able to get it dialed in. Hopefully someone here has one and can help you.

    I cant get it to stay consistent temps. It seems like its always 15-20 degrees over what i want. I cant get it up to 325 for chicken either. Most its ever gotten to is 306. Also the water pan drips into the charcoal box occasionally dampening the coals. It eats charcoal like crazy too. I bought a Cyber Q to help with long cooks but it seems like it under performs for the cost of the unit. Not sure if its MC design issue or Cyber Q blower placed in wrong location...

    Im thinking of just gettting PBC because they are super cheap for what you get. It will still give me true smoke cooking and not cost $3000 like my MC BX50

    Thoughts on Lang 48 Deluxe ?

    good morning folks !

    I was up early this morning firing my Meadow Creek BX50 and I hear someone saying my name in the distance. Lo and behold its my neighbor and of course being a fellow BBQ guy he smelled the fire I started. He proceeded to tell me that he's thinking of selling his Lang 48" Deluxe smoker. Immediately i wake up from my 4:55am zombie state ! I've checked it out before and its in great shape. Always been tarped and kept clean/ready. He said "Ill let it go for $2700 and ill throw in some apple wood too". My question is : Is that a good value?/price for this smoker ? Any pros or cons for this smoker ? I've never had a stick burner before. I'm still on the fence with this MC BX50 thing. I was actually thinking of selling it and just buying 2 PBC's and spending the leftover money on something else. Any advice would be greatly apprecitated. Thanks and happy Smoking

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy
