Just ordered 36 hybrid deluxe on wagon wheel cart!

I finally pulled the trigger and ordered one!  Got it on cart with damper on top of firebox.  Gonna be 4-6 weeks for delivery and was told they start build in 2 weeks.  Having it shipped to Northern Va area for 400.00.  Gas and lodging would be that so its a no brainer.  Gonna smoke some butts and ribs when I get it!  Anyone use the grill side and how is it compared to a small Weber etc? Curious on what guys think of the grill portion and the warming box.  I plan on cooking in the warmer as well on large cooks since I have the damper in top of firebox.

Re: Just ordered 36 hybrid deluxe on wagon wheel cart!

How much was the wagon wheel addition? I wish I'd have known that was available. My property is all gravel and it's almost impossible to move my unit. I wonder how difficult it would be for me to modify my unit?

Congrats on the new lang order! Your gonna love it, i ordered another Lang 36" patio on the 11th of june,and Ben just told me today it will be delivered Friday the 3rd right in time for the 4th of july lol,  this is my second one ive ordered, i got one back in 2012 but fell on really hard times this past December and i had to break down and sell it, i was really hurt that i had to sell it too, I LOVED MY LANG! I pulled off nothing but awesome meat every smoke, and i didnt even know how to smoke anything before i got one, I just jumped right in using a lang lol, and im glad i did. The good lord has blessed me and brought me through my tough times and allowed me to have the money to get me another one Smile. & Ben is a really stand up guy, because when i ordered this one i asked him if he thinks he can try to have mines made and delivered to me by the 4th, and he told me he was really gonna try to make it happen and he did! I will never smoke on anything else but a Lang! Smile

Nope, the addition has an axel that rotates. I could not get a trailer model, which I would have liked, into my back yard.

I think this will be an easy fix. An axel & 2 tires from Harbor Freight will do the job. I'm tired of using plywood sheets to move it around (like they used to move stome blocks in the early days).

The wagon wheel cart is the same one that is on the 48 hybrid model, with four tires and rims, not the pneumatic kind but actual tires.  The upgrade for the cart was 500.00 but I see it being worth it if I want to roll it on a trailer and do competitions etc, or even just moving it around since it weighs a little over 800 pounds.  The one thing I am glad I got also is the dampers in the top of the firebox for the warming box so I can cook in it also.  I figure I can get 2 more butts in the box if I ever needed to do a really big cook.  I figure I can get 4-5 on the bottom rack of main cooker and probably 2-3 more on second shelf plus 2 in warmer, that's between 8-10 total.  That will work!

UPDATE:  I had a brainiac idea and called LANG to see if they can modify my 36 hybrid on wagon wheel cart.  I asked them if I can have the 36 inch smoker section stretched to 42 inches and reduce the 30 inch grill portion to 24 inches.  This keeps the overall dimensions the same as far as total length etc but gives me 6 more inches of smoker.  I just felt that I really did not need a 30 inch grill section with having two shelves.  I figure the two shelves will accommodate whatever I need to grill  most of the time with giving me more room in the smoker section.  LANG told me that they may have to put an 18 inch firebox on it instead of the 17 but they wanted to test it first to make sure it would provide enough heat even though its only stretching the smoker section 6 inches.  I will update when I hear back!  Soooo damn excited I cant wait to get it!!!!!

36 hybrid deluxe delivered!

Well its here and an awesome machine.  seasoned it and got warming box to almost 500 degrees due to dampers in top of fire box.  Wagon wheel cart definitely the way to go on this unit as its heavy as hell!  Weighs in around 1100-1200 pounds delivery guy told me.   Click on pics below:

Biskitman: Did Lang make the mod you asked for and enlarge the fire box?

Nice looking unit and I agree the wagon wheels are the way to go.

Also, nice looking Corvette you have!!

Wood River,

I talked to Ben and he said they could not do it the way I requested because they had no data on whether the firebox could keep up with the unit being stretched longer and staying with the 17 inch firebox.  They said they would have to probably put an 18 inch box on it but the cost would rise a few hundred dollars.  In addition he said the griller would be so small that it would not be practical.  I personally think stretching the smoker to 42 and reducing the griller to 24 would be a perfect size but as Ben said if he went out in the shop and requested a custom model with these specs the boys would have pulled their hair out with the backorders they already have.  Im sure they could have done it but it probably was a matter of Ben and the gang wanting to or finding the time to do it this way.  Everything would have to be remeasured, cut to custom lengths etc.  They are a custom grill maker so I wish they could have made it happen.  I do love the one I got and am very happy with it.  I had them make it 34.5 inches wide on the cart thinking I would roll it in my front door.  No way!  With it being more narrow it makes the cooker section look bigger and have a smaller footprint instead of having a wide stance.

My wife would have crapped if I tried to bring my unit through the house. I had enough trouble convincing her I "had to have a Lang". Moving it through the house would have been a deal breaker. I had to move it through a side gate and I had less than 1" to spare. At first I thought I'd have to tear down part of a block wall but with a little angle on the unit I got it through. I was doing all the moving by myself until a neighbor took pity on me and decided to help -- after about 5 minutes he wished he'd had kept going. My unit is not as heavy as your's but it's one heavy mother for one person to handle and the steel wheels on gravel make it worse.

Re: 36 hybrid deluxe delivered!

sweet and sexy how is that removable smoke stack working for ya
Biskitman

The removable stack is the way to go in my opinion.  Have cooked twice and it worked perfectly and pulls like a welded one.  No issues and allows me to use a cover on hybrid!
