Take it from someone who owns a Lang 84. These cookers are drafty and if you want to cook low and slow with sticks you will have to add a stick and hour or hour and a half. It's the nature of the beast. Thats why we went to an Insulated Box Cooker for Competition. We had a Medium Spicewine and with a charcoal basket and BBQ Guru could maintain temperature for almost 24 hours on a bag of charcoal. When we started competing using the Lang we took shifts staying up to tend the fire. It got old pretty quick. No sleep at night is a fact of life with a Lang when cooking low and slow.
