Im having my TQ pit shipped 478 miles, the cost is not more than fuel and one night hotel.

PM me if you need the shippers info.

I would give Paul ( TQ ) a call, I think you will be please with his service.

48's are nice; bigger to a point is better. If you are having it shipped you may want to take a look at Lone Star Grillz http://www.lonestargrillz.com/ as they offer an awful lot for the money. I am very happy with my new one.

I haven’t cooked on a 36 or a 48 but I would recommend a 48 because of the larger space.
Although not one of your options, I believe the Lang 60 is the best size as it is fine for those times when you want to cook a few rack of ribs and big enough for those times when you want to cook a 100 Pound Pig. I’ve often said that I’m not a supporter of the Bigger is Better Theory. It’s important to know up front what the intended purpose of your pit will be and then buy accordingly.

Good luck and let us know what you end up doing.

If I was planning on a pit just for home, I would not spend the money on a warmer.

I normally believe in bigger is better, to an extent. The 36 is a great size, especially if you only cook for a group on the rare occasion, but I think the 48 is a much better all around size.

I've seen where they are offering a stretch version of the 36".. I think there's a video on Youtube.

It's basically the same size tube as the hybrid 36" but without the chargrill built in. Single door.

It's not listed on their website.. but I sent Ben an email today requesting a quote. I'll post the price if I hear back.

I don't know what looks better that on a patio cart or the weather in that video. I sent them an email asking about price for it on a patio cart as I'm looking to place my order this week or next.

Here's a quote from another forum:

I been reading your forum for a couple of months now, good stuff! On Nov. 18 I ordered a 36" Deluxe Hybrid Patio, was completed yesterday. I'm out of town right now and was going to pick it up in a few days. About 30 min. ago I talked with Sarah and cancelled that smoker and ordered the 36" Stretch Deluxe Patio. The price is $1895.00. She was again extremely pleasant and had no problem with my order change. Keep Smokin'!

18" isn't very deep though.

The stretch 36 looks like the same overall specs of a hybrid except one door and single chamber.

18" isn't very deep though.
The 36 has a diameter of 21 1/2 inches. The bottom racks are 18" deep.

I was looking at the Lang but ended up buying a Mack Daddy Smoker (MD 120). I love the fact it has 3 removable racks. Have only had for a few weeks but love it so far. You can't beat the price and its a quality product.

If you were asking for just a size, I'd agree with the folks who say bigger isn't always better. When you're already between 2 sizes, go with the bigger size, you won't regret it; if you go with the smaller size, you might regret it. I know when I bought my BGE I was between sizes and bought the smaller...within a couple of weeks I began to regret it. I still regret it.

Oh the phone with Sara at Lang and this is what I got from her before being passed off to a fabricator for more tech questions.
36 stretch patio orginal is 1595.00
Same firebox size as the 36 orginal
Length is close to the 60" about 54" length
16" cooking grate width (have heard they were 18.5")
It makes an excellent ribs/butt cooker due to the length and width
Both 48 and 36 are 3 week wait time.
Only thing that alarmed me was he said the 36 stretch is under priced right now because they are so new and they are not proven like the 48 is in regards to manufacturing, he did say the firebox will keep up with the expanded size of the stretch.
