  1. Greetings to all of the smokers out there. I am hailing from Alabama and and new to the whole "serious" smoking and Bar-Be-Queuing family. I have been an avid outdoor cook for many years and have always done most of the cooking for my immediate family. My first serious smoker is the Lang 36" Deluxe. I had mine delivered the day before Lang announced the new hybrid models. I missed a Charcoal Grill as a counter weight by a few days. I have only had time since the first of the month to season the grill. I have attached a few pictures, and my avatar is of my toy as well. Hopefully I will have some free time to break it in before my family wants me to prepare the Christmas meal. I work full time active duty for the Alabama National Guard and am a full time student working on my Doctorate. This being the holiday season my time is stretched extremely thin with time split with the in-laws and my family across the state. Between work and family gatherings I do not have any time off until the 22nd. If anyone has any advice or tips for me using this new smoker cooker please feel free to email or pm me

    information. I do use oak as my fuel source and have some fig available. I have several cuts of pork and some pre-seasoned brisket that was on sale available. Let me know if you professionals and other Lang owners need more information.

    Welcome to SMF, Majyst. You're going to love that Lang once you get her seasoned up and dialed in. I've been using the 60 Deluxe for several years now and just love the way she cranks out the smoked goods.

    Enjoy the smoke!

    First off welcome to SMF. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course.
