My first cook on my Lang84D
 
Ok so Ive been busy since this weekend's cook and I apologize for not posting this sooner! I did three butts all rubbed down with the same simple blend, a whole chicken and a chuck roast. I also did some bacon and some bacon wrapped scallops that were awesome! I didn't get any pics of the bacon or scallops since my guests arrived and I just forgot to take pics. Anyways here's some pics to feast your eyes on......

Looks great, awesome cooker

The butts are pretty much done here.....

I pulled the one on the far left first with a IT of 190 degrees and looking soooo good! My first time ever getting such nice looking bark! I was psyched!

Friends were just relaxing and waiting for the foiled meat to be served up! It was a bit chilly but hey they wanted to try my first cook, (no pressure) lol

and the chuck roast..... this didnt come out as good as I hoped for. The meat was very dry even after a two hour rest in foil and cooler.

As I mentioned earlier I got distracted by my company and forgot to take pics of the pulled pork, but trust me...... it was incredibly delicious! I gave out a bunch of freebies for favors, ( like the welding ) ;) and everyone who ate it couldnt get enough!

So needless to say all my searching for months and restoration effort on this baby sure has been worth it! I love my Lang!

Fantastic pics!

Congrats and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your cooks.

I'm thinking of doing another bird and some ribs....

That food looks great. The color looks fantastic and looks juicy. There'll be many more on that cooker.

How many splits did you use?

Man I got up at 4am for this not knowing what to expect so I forgot to count the amount of wood used... it wasn't terrible tho and I had some left over so I would say in the ball park of 20-25 splits. That includes getting her hot too....
