    I know Dave, but it is something I have to do. I am you sure you might, maybe, but won't understand. Anyway, if I like it that much I will revamp my stuff accordingly.

    We've God the State of Texas cutouts on the Tuning Plates and on the stack cover - very fun!

    Well, I'm not sure what happened, but I cannot make these pictures bigger?? Maybe they will look differently when I post this?

    In any event, on the road back we stopped at the newly opened Buccee's in Baytown TX. Huge store, the size of an old Wal-Mart, and 96 gas pumps. It's super fun, and they sell a pile of pits and smokers out front.

    And, of course, we put some fire on it every night since she's been home, practicing the fire thing on the past-its-prime wood I already had at the house.

    Fun!!

    Paul please check out this thread: http://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/for...pictures/page2

    I think you have been bitten by the small pics bug.

    Don't worry. It can be fixed!

    I see you are all over that TB. Weighing 1400 lbs you are correct in your assessment that it will not be going up on the deck. I will be designing a spot downstairs on the ground that will have a roof and be able to have wind and rain protection and a place to hang out for me and the wife while cooking down there. I may consider getting the trailer model since it weighs so much. I do have a small tractor so moving it around is not a problem.

    No, looking at the first pic of the whole unit. The fire box and warmer on on the far right and the 1st chamber to their left is the smoker box and then on the far left is the grill. The second picture is of the grill on the far left. I know it shows two full grates and I am considering asking for the upper grate to be a half grate or just get an additional grate and then I would have two full grates and one of them could be chaged out with a half grate.

    No! They are two separate units, smoker and grill, separated by a bulkhead and have totally different breathing/draw and exhaust.
    I never have to worry about someone volunteering me for something like that because I have BTDT and know how not to be committed unless I want to.

    The 36" smoker section is good to do 60-70 lbs of meat and the grill looks sizable also. Lang says it if for home use but, it would feed a huge family.

    Congrats Barry. I know you've been pining for a Lang for some time now and I hope you pull the trigger and, as they say on Parks & Rec, TREAT. YO. SELF. TO DAY.

    I like the grill and smoker combo myself and if I lived near GA then the Lang would be at the top of my list.

    Good looking cooker, Barry. One suggestion if I may make it, is consider a smoker with one solid door on the front, which then allows the interior to be one continuous run of grate & cooking surface. This allows you to fully utilize the smoker's full length, and also any warmer/cooler spots you may have. It also allows you more elbow room so to speak when you're wrapping a big brisket or trying to stack ten odd-shaped pork butts for a party you were voluntold to smoke meat for.

    Or you could just get a gazillion PBCs.

    I went to the Lang factory in Nahunta, GA this week and talked with Benjamin Lang, aka Ben Jr., for about 30 min interrupted.

    I have pretty much decided that I will be getting the 36" Hybrid Deluxe
    Patio Smoker Cooker




    This is a smoker and a grill combination unit. The pictures do not do this unit justice. The smoker side looks like you could get about 10 racks of ribs on the two shelves.


    The grill side is the same size as the smoker side. I asked Benjamin if he could make the grill side adjustable for the coals to get close or far away from the grate like the hasty bake and Santa Maria grills. He said he can do that so, that sealed the deal for me. I will be ordering one this year sometime. The unit weigh almost 1400 lbs and from what others are saying this model is miserly on stick consumption.

    i use a LANG60 it`s absolutely the best cooker i halve ever used they cook fast the sear plate puts off radiant heat while the smoke flowes over the top of whateveryou are cooking real easy to clean some waded up tin foil or a good wire brush and garden house you need to add splits every 30 to 45 min. depending on size and type of wood tou will love cooking with wood once you get the hang of it
