Lang is a great brand of smokers. Ben Lang is a great person. Many succesful BBQ teans have cooked on Langs.

I consider a Lang as one of the best "Log Hogs" meaning you have to feed it a log every now and then. I prefer to get some leep, but in my younger days, yeah, it was fun staying up all night drinking beer and throwing on a log every 30 minutes to maybe an hour to control the temperature. Ahhhhhhh! The memories.

I can't decide between a Backwoods Fatboy or a Lang 48 trailer model. http://img.tapatalk.com/a6cd0ab6-ea54-afc4.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/a6cd0ab6-ea81-16c2.jpg

Those two choices, I would go with the Lang. Both are good cookers, but I just like the Lang better. I have cooked on both, but I guess that I just didn't appreciate the set up of the charcoal basket and the water pan in the Fat Boy. I can't really explain what I mean, I just was never comfortable with the Fat Boy. Don't get me wrong, it cooked some great food and took less tending than the Lang, but it just wasn't me.

We went with cookers that can be loaded in a an inclosed trailer. This is because pulling a smoker wouldn't allow for all our supplies to be loaded. We would have to have one truck pull the inclosed trailer and one pull the smoker. Not a good option for our team.

P.S. I know two teams that complain about the lack of space in the 48. One team bought a backwoods and another uses a 22 in wsm in addition to the 48. Consider how much you need to cook. We also cook peoples choice out here alot which requires lots of space.

Have a Lang 36 patio model and love it. Does require a good bit of your attention, I like to tinker so it is right up my alley. Agree with Bob, Mr. Ben Lang is a very honorable fellow. Met him last summer when I pickeded up my cooker at his facility. He agreed to meet me Saturday morning, they are usually closed on weekends, he was willing to accomodate my busy schedule at the time. Good luck with whichever cooker you decide on, either one would be a fine addition. Also have 2 WSM's and a UDS, still use them quite often for butts and longer sessions.

Do you want to sleep during your cooks?

Unless you get free wood cut split and delivered as needed...I would vote for the Fatboy.
