How big of a hog can you get on this smoker? Also are the firebox's insulated? Thanks

About 100 pounds and no, it's not insulated.

My Lang 60 will hold a 100 pound hog according to Ben Lang. The 84 will hold a larger one than that. Not only is it 2 feet longer than my 60, but the diameter of the cooking chamber is also larger. You can call Lang at...

800-462-4629 or 912-462-6146

They will answer any questions you may have.

And as stated above, the firebox is not insulated.

Have not done a pig in a Lang yet, however members have successfully did a 100-120
hog on a smaller Lang 60. Going slightly bigger shouldn't hurt.

Can't go wrong with a Lang, IMO for an all around versitile smoker. And, the Lang 84 will cook a lot, and I mean a lot of meat besides a big hog.

I do a 100 pounder every year for the 4th of July on my Lang 60.

The only thing I would worry about is some of the older 84's had two doors and not a single like on the 60

Also, you really don't need the insulated firebox on a Lang, as they are efficient enought to handle just about any weather. 100lbs won't be a problem at all.

Thats good because it gets cold here. I have 2 stumps so I would cook on those in the winter.Thanks

I cook on my Lang year round and trust me, Chicago in the winter is not the "Hot Spot" they talk about in the winter!

What I've found is that a simple wool blanket (or moving blanket) over the cooking area does a world of good. To the point that when the out side temps get down around -15* I really don't notice any change in my timing or fuel usage.

This is kinda normal around my house at winter...

Beautiful whole hogs, in this thread. I don't have a Lang, but I fit a 140 pound (dressed) hog, butterflied, on my similar cooker. My surface is 48"x30" -- any smaller and I would've been screwed (the farmer was supposed to bring me a 100lb hog). I had to cut off the head. Here are some pics:
