Default lang 84

Got a chance at a used 84 but think its way to much cooker for me most of the time wondering if fuel to keep it at temp is a lot more than the 60.
i guess wondering if it is way to big for a family backyard cook.

would much rather have the 84 than the 60 I find the 84 aways filled when I cook.

I have a 60 and love it. However, there's been a time or two when I'd really like the
extra room of an 84. We can do a hog on the 60, but it's a small one and we have to
cut the feet off... I dont think it would that *that* much more fuel.

If you're only cooking 2 racks of ribs, you probably wouldn't want the 60 either.

What's the price on the 84? I'll swap you a 60 (with warmer) for an 84!

I got my 84 in January, been cooking on it every weekend in 20 to 50 degree weather. I light it with a chimney of charcoal and add about 5 sticks of wood the size diameter of a pint jar. After that burns down to coals I add about three more sticks of wood and then about two sticks every 45 minutes to an hour after that. I think in warm weather it will use less. Don't know how that would compare to a 60.

I've had my 84D for the past 7 years and cooked a farkin' fark-load of meat on it. It's a great cooker for the money and I love it.

That said, I found myself putting it up for sale earlier this year because it's just too big for me any more. I ended up buying a used 22˝" WSM from Craig's List to see if it would fit my needs better. It does, and I really like it. However, I still really like my Lang and I think I'm going to keep it so I can have the best of both worlds. The WSM for the back yard and the 84 for when I really need the extra room.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I love my Lang so much, I just can't bring myself to sell it, but it is really too big for everyday back yard stuff...

Hope this helps.
