    48 Deluxe Lang Smoker

    Here is my new 48" Deluxe Lang smoker. I would like to hear from others that also have a Lang smoker to get tips on cooking with it.

    Sweet rig. Love the color of the truck too.

    Wish I had one to give you some tips.


      Welcome to The Pit DW. Please check out my Welcome and Tips posts to get an idea of your guidelines and a tip on how to complete your sig. http://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/forum/main

      I'm moving this topic to the Grills and Smokers Channel. You'll find several helpful folks there!


        Lang has several instructional videos on their website... here's the link: http://langbbqsmokers.com/news_media...wToVideos.html They also have a smart phone app that has been updated. Here's a general tip... Consider adding gaskets to all the doors, etc. to "tighten up the ship". It will pay dividends in fuel efficiency & temperature control.

          I have seen all of the Lang videos more then once. I would like to see other videos of meat actually cooking on the Lang 48 Deluxe. I have only cook once on my Lang and that was 8 butts. They turn out to be ok but I had problems with the temp being hotter on the firebox end then the other end which I know the firebox side is going to hotter. Is there a way to balance it out more evenly across the grate? I'm going to do bb back ribs and whole chicken next weekend and I was thinking of putting ribs on the not so hot side and the chicken closer to the firebox side, what do think? It's like a new toy that I have to play with and learn.


            First, I wish I had one, I WANT ONE!

            Now that I've got that out of my system, I agree with taking advantage of what others might see as a disadvantage. Namely, stick-burners have hot spots. If you learn just how much of a difference you have from end-to-end, then all you have to do is get the timing right. Huskee and I both use that temperature difference to our advantage when cooking meats with different thicknesses. Using it for ribs at one end and chicken at the other makes perfect sense.


              Thanks boftx


                Try putting a water pan on the hot end under the grates. That has helped me even out temp spikes in my EOS. By the way nice little setup there. The only thing in hindsight I wish I would've done different was gotten a trailer rig like that.


                  That's a nice smoker dude. I have nothing so nice so I can't really comment beyond that.

                    It's not a bad truck either.


                      I have been looking hard at the Lang 36" Deluxe but continuing the learn and expand my horizons, I think DW is correct and the 48"Deluxe would be better. As Huskee said the trailerable option is very desirable and even in the yard it makes lining the unit up with the way the wind is blowing looks easier on this unit.

                        FWIW I can fit 9 racks of ribs laying them flat on the grates quite easily in my Yoder, which has the same general dimensions as the 48" Lang. That is with using the upper rack which is sometimes optional. Obviously you could cook way more poundage if doing pork butts or chickens, taller meat. You will never regret getting a larger unit but the first time there's a gathering coming up and it wont all fit on the small unit you'll kick yourself. (Or you wife will kick you )

                    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

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

                    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.
