    Finally got the call from Ben to come get my Lang model 60. Took off work and went to Nahunta. Of course I get there and see all the great looking grills and start wishing I had gone with the 84. Finally I asked Ben the odds of upgrading. It took a bit of checking to make sure he had one finished that hadn't been sold.

    To make a long story short I came away very happy with a new Mobile 84. Aside from obviously being larger what made me want to move up were two items. 1) doors and work surface on both sides and 2) the second shelf actually slides out instead of having a shelf with legs sitting on the primary cooking surface. Anyway here are pics. Hope to season it tomorrow.

    It was a little expensive, but I figure while I can get it now. I'll never have to buy another smoker or grill. After taxes it was $2,990.95.

    I'll be experimenting with amounts of wood needed to maintain the temps I want over the next couple of weeks. I'll do a few meals on it at the same time, but I'm really gearing up for its first competition in Sept.
