I don't find them to be fuel hogs as Pappy Q wrote above. I guess each pit is different or maybe I'm just use to the consumption.
If you are not set on a reverse flow, there are some great pits made in Texas that may have a higher price tag then a Lang but when you factor in shipping, you may be even. Good luck with your search and don't forget to let us know what you end up buying.
I went from a Lang 60 to a Jambo, the fuel comsumption with the Jambo was about 1/4 that of the Lang and the tending time was cut in half. My opinions are soley based upon that. That's why I think the Lang would benefit from an insulated fire box. If just using for backyard and not competition, the Lang is an excellent choice.
