I have a 36 Lang and absolutely LOVE IT. We had a very nasty storm last week and it tore the tarp I cover mine with. The thought crossed my mine more than once (honestly more than a dozen times) to go out and at least move it around to get as much coverage as I could. The wind was blowing so hard it moved my gasser more than 4 feet on LOCKED casters. Needless to say, I was a bit worried about my own saftey if I had gone out there it was so bad.
Ok, back to the important stuff. You obviously have great taste in smokers, so that doesn't need to be mentioned. I have to continue what has been previously mentioned. Go a size up from what you think you need now. I seriously flirted with the 48 when I bought my 36, but thought the 36 would be more than enough for me. Most days it is, but there's always thoughs day you want to out cook the state (and you'll have those days when you get yours).
Warmer box ... I don't know ... I don't have one, but I can't imagine I would use it too often if I did.
