If you enjoy smoking - listen to the folks who tell you to get the biggest you can afford. I had a some serious heartburn plunking down the money for my Lang - but I can tell you it was some of the the best money I've ever spent. I truly enjoy smoking - and it has brought me a lot of pleasure (tending the fire, eating the BBQ, and listening to the compliments!) Good luck with your decision - and enjoy whichever one you choose.

Do yourself a favor and PM TuscaloosaQ. You will get more smoker for less money and you will be very happy with the product. Paul has done work for many people on this board. You can check out his website shirleyfabrication.com and you will see real quick how good he is.

When I bought mine the 48 Deluxe was about the same cost as the 60 NOT Deluxe. I asked Lang's opinion and he said he would go with the 60. That's what I did. I would go with the 48. I don't think the 36 is big enough.

I voted for the 36" Deluxe. But that's only because I already have an 84" Deluxe with chargrill. I love the product that the 84" puts out. The warmer box can run hot depending on how you run your vents. If you want it as a warmer, what's worked best for me is to close the vent from the main chamber and open the top vents in the box to let the radiant heat bleed out. I use the warmer box for the sides I do for my event. It's a great place for half steam pans of baked beans or mac and cheese. I've also used it to smoke brisket while doing turkeys in the main chamber. Definitely go a size bigger than you think you'll need.

I went through the same debate for weeks. Finally decided on the 48 for the added flexibility. I like having that extra space when friends come over or I'm cooking several different meats at the same time. Plus my friends said, "if you're debating this long over it...get the larger one." Which, I have to say that I'm happy that I did. If you have it in your budget, go for it. It'll cost you more money to upgrade to a 48" if you decide the 36" isn't large enough. Good Luck, you'll be happy with any of them.

Default biger is better

i halve a lang 60 original i picked it up at lang`s in NAHUTA GA. my wifey wanted a 48 with warmer but i got the 60 after being able to see the different models side by side i was glad i got the 60 the warmers are not very big on the 36,48 imho you are better off to spend your hard earned bucks on the larger cook chamber over the warmer

Just get one of every model then you won't go wrong. :) You'd probaby like the 48 better, due to the difference in capacity. I own and have competed on both.

They make a 36 stretch its longer longer than a 48 its the same body as 36 hybrid
they leave off the divider for the char grill I wish I would have known before I bought the hybrid deluxe
the vertical warmer box worth every dime it cost

Now mine is one with the rounded ends and the newer ones may be set up a bit different, but I'm sure there will still be some "grate loss" at each end.
Why is there so much "grate loss" on both ends? That seems very wasteful to me.

the smoke and heat come into the chamber under the drip pan below the grate on reverse flow it has to come out the opposite end from the chimney reverses
backward over the top of the food so you loose about 6" on the 36 it appears to be more on some of the larger units from what I've read.
