Texas RFS versus Lang

Postby HillbillyPigSmoker » Wed Feb 18, 2015 4:00 pm

Long timer reader, first time member.

I'm interested in upgrading to trailer mount reverse flow smoker 60" size. I like Lang but don't want to pay the shipping. Who would you look at in Texas that makes a comparable or better RFS?

Thank you for feedback.

Welcome neighbor from the other side of the pond.
I'm sure there will be some RFS opinions for you here. Since I use a pellet cooker I can't be of much use.

Most (if not all) of the quality custom pit manufacturers (Klose, Gator, Lone Star and many more) will build an R/F smoker. I'm a former owner of an East Texas Smoker Company trailer pit - they make R/F smokers exclusively. Be sure to evaluate not only by price but customer service as well. I strongly urge you to visit them in person before plunking down a deposit. Good Luck and post up what you end up with.

HillbillyPigSmoker, I would make one phone call to Paul Shirley of Shirley Fabrication in Alabama. He and his son Tyler build the finest reverse flow cookers I know of and their work is second to none.
If you call him tell him k.a.m. sent you looking.
Good luck with your search. :D

You are very welcome HillbillyPigSmoker. I know Paul personally and can say he will build you what you want for a fare price.
I look forward to seeing some pics of your new cooker. :D
