    New Smoker Time

    Hey Guys!

    Brand new here.

    I currently have a Louisiana grills CS450 pellet grill that I have outgrown. I want something that gives better smoke flavour, is bigger, and that requires a bit more skill to cook. I have been looking at Lang 36, Horizon 20" Icon, and the LSG 20x44.

    I would love the option of burning charcoal as well so I can still do a set it and forget it type of cook sometimes.

    I live in Toronto, Canada so shipping is going to be a huge cost.

    There are a few canadian custom builders but I do not feel confident enough to know from looking at the products if they are good quality or not.

    Really just looking for any information to help make the choice. Wanting to spend about 2000USD or so.

    Thank you in advance


    Welcome to the pit from the California Delta.
    Both Lang and LSG build top quality cookers. I have an LSG insulated cooker and am very satisficed with the workmanship of the unit and how it cookers. It weights 900 pounds and cost me $590 in shipping to California. You're probably about the same distance. I have no idea of tariffs or taxes in Canada. But I think you might be a little light in the budget. Good luck!!


      Welcome from Virginia! No experience with either of those cookers, but I am sure you will get the answers you need.


        We have a meat up tonight on zoom and the topic is log burners. Join in and hopefully you will learn a bit.

        What are the details on that?

          I have a Horizon 20" Classic, an can attest to their quality. Lang an LSG's quality is top-notch, as well.


            Welcome from sunny South Florida!
            I have the Lone Star 20x42. Because we are in Florida no need for an insulated firebox. It weighs in @ 800 lbs. I think you are going to have to raise the budget to go this route. BTW, you won’t be disappointed, great cooker!! Click image for larger version

                  Welcome fellow Canuck! Nice upcoming project you have. You might want to take a look at some small Quebec smoker builders. The artisan builder scene is growing. Check for Hamrforge They have amazing stuff. Also heard of one builder coming on the scene soon.

                    I saw hammrforge but their offset smoker is $5500. What other Canadian builders are you aware of?

                      Greetings from South Africa


                        Welcome from Maryland. I have heard good things about Hamrforge. I know we have a member who had one shipped to Australia. Hopefully he will see this post and comment.

                        I also know Max Good has said his friends in Canada love them.

Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
