Greetings. I am looking into buying a bar/restaurant. I want to add a smoker to the menu. I have done bbq catering for the last two years. I have a lang 84 and southern pride 300 trailer. Looking at putting in a cookshack 200 series with a cookshack hood vent. Any reviews or comments.

Thanks for the suggestion on the cookshack forum. Never thought to look for one. I did end up buying the cookshack. Just can't wait to get it wired up.

With the Lang you cannot sell food to the public

Also i wanted something to use in the kitchen. The cookshack came with vent hood so it doesn't need to go under the main hood.

Don't know about MN, but in CA you can't use a mobile cooker for a restaurant. Cooker has to stay at the building.

I believe MN is similar in that area. This smoker had the necessary vent hood, it was in amazing condition, and it was hour drive. All plus's in my book.

you can smoke outside of the restaurant in Mn, but you have to jump through a few hoops to do it

On a day like today its not bad to be outside smoking but when it gets -30 its not as much fun.

Only in your city?

I guess the reason i asked is the food on the Cookshack will be nothing like your used to from the Lang or SP.

Not in my state, don't matter what city, has to be NSF, you can use a non NSF smoker at three events during the year for no more than 10 days total with all 3 events

I have known a few people who have used the cookshack smokers in a restaurant setting and they have been happy with the results. If it doesn't work we will look at another plan.

Hi Mark, you know that the cookshack is going to be "Gold" if you buy that bar;) just be glad
It's not an FE100! You would need some extra calamity insurance if it were an FE.

Do you mind explaining what you mean with that statement?

I would check out their new FE 120, it operates like a convection oven and gives better heat distribution than the fE 100 and will fit in a kitchen.

Okay Guys. Got the Cookshack D201 - After talking with the tech guy Cookshack he said it was pretty much a Cookshack 250 with a dehdydrator fan. Sounded like if I needed parts it won't be an issue. The previous owner had opted for the vent hood. Got it home just need to run a line for 220 plug. Can't wait to fire it up.
