Default Lang 108 Owners Get In Here

About to pull the trigger on one and would really appreciate some feedback and tips or things to make sure are done right before it leaves Lang.

And if you got pics post em please!

Thanks

I don't have a Lang, but have read the reviews on here, and I understand everyone loves this smoker. I have a custom built trailer mounted pit. I have looked online at these cookers. What are you going to do with this smoker? Catering, Comps? I personally would want a trailer mounted smoker with room to load wood, charcoal, tables, gear, supplies, etc. You don't get that with this setup. Only down fall I see.

I'm getting a straight cooker with wood storage and warmer box.

Gonna be doing catering and festivals.

Hopefully will find space for goodies if it doesn't fit in the excursion.

If not ill buy a box truck and make a catering rig with refrigeration

I currently have a custom 180 gal reverse flow cooker on a trailer as well.it

I have a Lang 60 on the trailer. It's my 2nd smoker and I love it. Make sure you get the slide out shelves or at least the top one. You may want to order the Charcoal basket while you are ordering. Once I ordered my smoker and picked it up I have never had any luck getting Ben Lang to do anything else. It's like you bought your smoker now leave me alone. I called and sent emails trying to order a charcoal basket but never received a reply. Don't get me wrong, I love my smoker but there is no service after the Sale. Get what you want up front because if it's like my experience if you want anything later...Good Luck

I have a 60D trailer, and the smoker because much easier to control after I made a charcoal basket.......and a year later I built a slide out second shelf. I would say the charcoal basket is a MUST. Good luck!

If your set on a Lang then thats fine but I was amazed at the prices Shirley Fabrication offered for trailer rigs. Lots of his stuff has been shown lately on this forum because of the quality he puts out and his service. I was going to put the money down today for a lang 48 but switched to SF because he offered more for the buck, options and cooking space wise. Now my money is heading to Tuscaloosa.

^^^^ I agree, nothing against lang but by the pictures for the money it looks like up you could more get bang for your buck. Just an opinion!

I bought a Lang 84" Deluxe with Chargrill in July 2012. I love the product that it puts out. I started a nonprofit and do fundraisers with it. I'm still figuring out "the business", but for my first event I did 40 pork butts (about 8lbs each) in the main chamber and filled it. I would have liked a slide out bottom rack, but that would reduce the cook space on that rack. I'm planning on buying a 36" patio model for personal use. I agree that customer service is lacking. I met Ben when I bought mine, and don't think this is for lack of care for the consumer, I think it's more an issue of trying to keep the business small and family run but dealing with a high demand.

I have a trailer mounted twin 108 with warmer boxes and two 5 foot chargrillers. The 108 will hold allot of meat and is very easy to run. It's allot more economical to run as far as wood useage than one would think. I cooked a contest last year on it and paced the wood in the fireboxes to keep it dry for transport cause it was going to be raining on the 250 mile trip. I cooked a 180 pound hog in one and 8 shoulders and 18 slabs of ribs in the other one useing what wood fit in the two fireboxes...and had a little bit left.
