Kevin: I have that cover (Home Depot) for my Lang 36 Patio and it covers it -- barely. The chimney is the problem. The edge of the cover just comes down to the fire box handle but it works better than anything else I've tried. I don't think it will work on any of the 36 hybrids. Get it from Home depot and you can return it if it doesn't work.

Really? saw a post here where someone said it fit their hybrid like a glove. They posted the exact model .

I contacted GrillWraps who do custom covers out of Sumbrella fabric. $429 was the quote. Whoa. I'll buy 20 Char Grill covers before I'd pay that.

Kevin: I just re read his cover post. I think how he made it work was because he has a fold down shelf so maybe it will work on a hybrid.

As I said, I have that exact cover. It's 72" long and my patio from one end to the handle on the fire box is 68". The cover is 36"wide and my cooker is 32" wide. The cover height on one end is 55" high (36" at the opposite end) and my chimney is 71". It's 49" from the ground to the top of my cook chamber.

It doesn't fit my unit like a glove but it covers the cook chamber/shelf and half the fire box. The chimney is the problem. If I had known about the Lang removable chimney option this cover would have been perfect. I don't know the measurement of a hybrid but it's bigger than my patio. Measure your unit and compare it to the cover measurements and see what you get.

I also looked at custom made covers and could not afford one. On a previous cooker I had a Brinkman cover, which didn't last in the AZ heat -- it turned gray in 2 months and then fell apart in 5 months. The Char Grill is twice as heavy and has withstood the elements very well - no color change and I purchased it 8/16/13. For $30 it's a throw away and replace.

The fold down shelves make that cover work. I spent hours trying different combinations of tarps etc until I found that cover. Life would be so much easier if Lang made covers for their units.

He said he can make it work with them up or down in his post....but we'll see. I'll order mine the minute Lang calls me about shipping my unit.

Well, last week I was told it would be completed early this week. It's Thursday already and no word. I would rather have quality over quickness tho, but still, the wait is tough....trying to plan BBQ with friends and not sure if I'll even have it by memorial weekend yet.

Thanks for the tip. I ordered the Char-Broil Heavy Duty XL Smoker Cover from Amazon. It fits perfectly over my 36" Hybrid Original on a Wagon Cart.

KevinWI

haha....I was looking at the metal shed thinking that's what you ended up buying instead...didn't even pay attention to the cover at first.
