Hey whats up everyone. coming to you here from Virginia. Im in northern part not to far from D.C. Just happen to stumble across these forums doing my research on Lang smokers. I thank all who has posted comments on them, as it swayed me to place my order for the 36 patio model. just wished it was in my budget to get the 48 deluxe, but the shipping is steep hit. love low and slow cookin, been at it for some years starting off on gas grills with foil pouches. Then moved on to the average cheap store offsets. Really excited about the Lang coming in a few weeks. I have only read good things about them. Only problem is trying to figure out what to smoke for the first go round on it! Brisket if definitely on the menu. gonna order a full prime from lobels or go all out for a snake river farms waygu. I will be sure to post up pics of my Lang arrival as well as my many smokes to come!
