Memphis Pro Pellet vs Lang BBQ Smokers

Concerns about Maintaining the Smoker Cooker Temperature


I have a few questions, when I was considering a smoker I was considering a Memphis Pro Pellet grill after further research it sounds like you cannot achieve a smoky flavor with these. What I did like was that you can maintain a constant temp at 225 degrees. My concern with the Lang is being able to control the temp. (more…)

An International Shipping Quote

I am a caterer by trade and am looking for a wood smoker. Please can you let me have your various pricing options. Delivery would be to the port of Durban South Africa.

Smoker Cooker Questions from MI

Questions from South East Michigan

I am currently in the market for a smoker and your 48” Deluxe or 48” Hybrid Deluxe has caught my eye. I’ve been smoking briskets and pork shoulders for the last eight years or so utilizing my Weber kettle grill and my cheap Brinkman vertical water smoker. I’ve mastered the two but now I’m treating myself to an upgrade. There are plenty of smoker manufacturers out there and I want to know what sets you apart from the rest? What advantages do your smokers have compared to the competition? (more…)

Interested in a 84 Deluxe with Chargrill

October 8, 2012

Interested in Models: The 84 Deluxe with Chargrill

David from Elberton, Georgia is planning to purchase a smoker cooker in the not to distant future and had some interesting questions for Ben Lang.



In 2011 I purchased a 250 smokers which was a Bubba Grill Brand and started a small operation. Working full time, I had very little time to BBQ but competed in a few competitions getting great results and winning some.

What I feel was more important was I started to develop a name and repetition for cooking good BBQ mostly pulled pork and ribs. Since I have started I have on many occasions out grown my smoker for the number of people wanting good BBQ.

I have had some good results with my smoker but I also have some issues where the fire box I believe is not large enough, the warming box is oversized, and there are some issues with trying to maintain a consistent temperature. I had an opportunity to see a 84 single, in  operation a while back and really like it.I wanted to get a quote on a custom Smoker. I have a picture of one that I located by blogging the internet which looks very similar to the below mentioned unit but is on a larger trailer (double axle). I can submit if needed. I have looked at your web site and really like the 84 Twin Deluxe Model (I call it the double barrel) with the warming boxes. I like the char griller but my only issue is the lack of storage space. If I need to provide additional information please contact me…

Ben Lang:

David , We can build you a single or double 84/with char grill on a tandem axle frame and an extra-long neck to accommodate your storage needs. 

What ever you would like we can make it happen.

And yes our Lang BBQ Smokers are  Far Superior to the imitations that are out there available. You will find our components built to the exact size they need to be, our temperatures to be  very consistent and our “cook friendly-ease of use” to be second to none. Not to mention our factory made “built for purpose look” will go a long way in getting you additional catering  gigs and satisfying health department concerns.

Thanks for choosing Lang BBQ Smokers. Looking forward to working with you on your order.

Insulated Fireboxes?

October 4, 2012


Q: Are all your smokers 1/4 in steel?

A: Yes, our BBQ smokers are all 1/4″ plate thru-out.

Q: Do you also make insulated fireboxes?

A: When materials are this thick and all-welded in construction; they hold their heat extremely well and don’t need the insulation  like thinner gauge metal machines do. 

~  Thanks for Looking at Lang BBQ Smokers.

Hope to serve you on up soon.
Ben Lang
