My dear wife is my biggest critic. She told me I am officially out of the dog house for buying a new smoker.  She said the pork butt I cooked today was the best I have done and actually asked why I didn't buy it sooner!!  I decided on 250* for this cook and the Yoder held that solid for the entire 9 hour cook.  It burned about 16 lbs of pellets. The balance of smoke, pork, seasoning and tenderness were spot on.  But the coolest thing about it was I could watch football all day and not worry about feeding the stick burner.  I will always love my Horizon pit because she was my first but the Yoder makes cooking a whole lot more fun.  I am really looking forward to some solid practice sessions on the Yoder.

Pix of my first butt on the 640!

I LOVED the smoke ring on the butt.  My concerns about not enough smoke are gone forever!

What Lang model are you purchasing and when will it be delivered? If you make your Lang as air tight as you can, as I have, you'll find they hold temperature very well and your fuel consumption will be low. For example, I cooked a 12lb turkey last week for 3.5 hours. I started with a full basket of lump charcoal and added about 5 coke can size chunks of hardwood plus a couple of handfuls of lump and maintained a temp average of 285*.
