Just wanted to drop a note and say how happy I am with my new Lang 36 Hybrid on the run about trailer. Took delivery just under a month ago and, while I am still learning the unit, I have produced some of the best BBQ I have every made in 14 years of being a serious “back yard cooker.” So far we have cooked pulled pork, ribs, smoked chicken wings and a nice 15.5 lb. brisket.
The ribs that came off were the closest I have ever made to “competition” grade, along with everything else being so good it was unreal that recipes I have used for years were so much better just using this cooker and straight hickory!
Cook times are shorter, which no sacrifice to tenderness. I am no longer over smoking my meats, and they are coming off with light, delicate smoke but nice smoke rings at the same time. I have dubbed my Lang the “Skill Killer”, as I have yet to encounter a stall on anything. As a matter of fact, I am having to relearn cooking times as this unit is so efficient I overestimated the brisket cooking time and fired up at midnight when I could have waited hours before stating.
Just wanted to share my experience so far. After years of cooking on cheap offsets, I just about don’t know what to do with myself. All I can think is, holy cow what are we gonna have once I actually learn how to run this thing properly (and my wood is better seasoned!). What a fantastic problem to have!
Thank you all so much and a special thank you to Ben for taking the time to talk with me before I purchased.
Loving my Lang in Nashville!
