Found a used Lang patio model and hauled it back to Denver through the very windy barren wasteland commonly known as Wyoming a couple of weeks ago. It is in perfect condition, as it was less than two years old. I was finally able to invite a few friends over and try it out this past weekend. Cooked up 6 slabs of baby backs, two chickens and a big pot of smoked beans. Everything turned out perfect. Maintained a pretty steady 230 degrees until the end using apple wood. Sorry that I didnt take pics for the qview, next time. Only issue I have is with the firebox. Towards the end of smoking, 6 hours total, I couldnt maintain a temp above 200 degrees. I'm pretty sure this was due to the ash buildup under the firegrate. I was wondering if others have had this problem. Has anyone raised the level of the grate to allow move ash to accumalate? What would you do for a long smoke duration like 12 hours or so when doing a butt? Any suggestions? Once I got the coal bed established, I added a log about every 45 minutes. Also, searching for a name for it. The man that used to own it died from H1N1 this past winter. I was thinking to name it 'Swine Flue' in his honor and paint Swine on the smokestack (ie flue).
