Lang 108 vs Lang 84
 
Anyone here have a Lang 108 that also has or has previously had an 84?

I have an 84 and was looking to possibly upgrade to the 108. I was wondering that with the increased size is there much difference in wood consumption and temp control?

I cook often at 350 for chicken and pork loins. Is there a problelm obtaining and maintaining these higher temps.

I cook butts and briskets at 250-270. Are we talking about alot of extra wood to maintain this temp. (more than 1-2 sticks per hour)?

thanks in advance for any help you can provide

Don't know that answer personally or know anyone running a 108.
Possibly a call to Ben Lang tomorrow morning will help you.
He's known to be near the phones in the morning.

I don't own anything near as complex as even a lang 48, but this thread has my attention. I didn't even know there was anything over 84.

:pop2:

Forrest (Florida Farmer) has Twin 108s on a 28' trailer.
I am sure he has feedback for you.

I am giving him a heads up to catch this thread.

That sounds like a beast. Any chance can posts pictures of that bad boy too?

I have a 84, a 96, and the twin 108....they all have the deluxe warmer boxes. All run pretty much exactly the same and use minimal wood.

Holly Molly!!! :shocked: You must have the entire state of Florida covered in BBQ.. :eusa_clap My hat is off to you. If I ever retire, and end up in Florida, I'll be looking you up. Surely you'll need some help... :wink: Cheers!!!

Actually, the Langs are a very, very small part of Forrest's collection.

I think when he retires, he is gonna open a Cooker Museum :grin:

As to Pics--Forrest is not a camera kinda guy--sorry. :oops:

Damn fine cook too, both at comps and in the "real world".
