I just got it this past weekend and now may have to wait for the new tropical storm to pass before I can actually cook anything.
I think both are great cookers and you'll be thrilled when you can finally fire it up!
Your lang does look purdy. I do hope the year flies by. I'm pretty patient now but once Paul starts sending confirmation and pictures I might go crazy.

Thanks Paul. I took a lot of my build inspiration from your cooker. Mainly just feeding a family of 4 with the occasional 15-20 from the rest of the family. I was thinking the same thing about the burners, dont really have a need for it but would hate to kinda want it when the trailer is here in California. I'm also debating if I should have Paul add some rack tracks so I have more options for rack placement in the main chamber.

Yeah I know plenty of time to add more options to bring the price up so the wifey can me out... I keep telling her its a once in a life time purchase. Its cooking for the family. This isnt for me but for the family.

Looks like you did it right..... I like the ash pan..... It saves on the firebox and makes life easy.... Easy is good. Seems like alittle thing. But you will be glad you did it.

Good decision! You will have plenty of time to change your specs. I'm hoping to make the trip to Tuscaloosa before Thanksgiving to bring mine home.
Congrats.

Thanks. You will get there. Paul is awesome. Awesome no pressure, patient willing to answer any of your questions no matter if it leads to a purchase or not. One thing I remember most is after every email Paul would end it with take your time no rush.

In regards to the firebox. I went with the insulated firebox mainly for up keep cosmetically as less chance of rust and paint peeling due to the exterior of the firebox being insulated from the heat inside. And here in cali we have to pay much more for wood compared to some of our fellow brethren from other states.
