You are correct $550 on top is tough...I paid that for shipping to So Cal...it was delivered by two Lang locals on a Chevy 2500 pick up with 3 other smokers being transplanted to So Cal...All of the cookers I compared to the Lang 36 were built in the South and come with a big shipping charge to civilization...It is what it is...
The other mod you will need to make is to cut up an old cooking grate (whatever you have)to sit on top of the Lang fire grate...Since the Kingsford that you use to start the cooker will fall through the huge expanded steel that they use...
