SAT March 31st from 10AM - 9PM
SUN April 1st from 10AM - 4PM

Sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, the BBQ Throwdown will attract top competitors on the barbeque circuit competing for a guaranteed purse of $50,000 -- one of the world's richest contests.

Lang Smokers Demonstrates The Thrill of the Grill at ACM BBQ Throwdown in Las Vegas.

The Kansas City Baron of BBQ and Seven time world champion Paul Kirk will be doing demos on Lang BBQ Smokers® at the ACM BBQ Throwdown March 30 - April 1 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Joining the legendary champion will be Bill Davis from Hickory Barn BBQ from Athens, Tennessee.


The Lang Team, directed by chief cook Brad Kay will be cooking up "Beef Sliders" for a VIP party of ACM executives and sponsors, plus Country Music personalities. 25 briskets, provided by Creekstone Beef, will be smoked on a 84" Lang BBQ Smoker® Deluxe smoker cooker with hickory wood. Get the brisket slider recipe!
Lang BBQ Smokers®, as seen on TLC's BBQ Pitmaster TV Series, have become legendary for authentic BBQ performance. It comes from their unique and original reverse-flow, off-set firebox design. They have an all welded griddle under the grilling racks that sizzles and sears the meats to goof-proof perfection with out fighting a fire or grease flare-up.

Besides being easy to clean and durable, it punches more flavor into food than any other smoker on the market. Whether you are cooking for pleasure, profit or promotion, The Lang BBQ Smoker® will "tilt the flavor in you favor".

Look for Lang BBQ Smoker® demos through-out the ACM BBQ Throwdown and see them in action at the BBQ competition by some of the world's best teams.

It is not by accident that so many Chefs, Caterers and BBQ Cooks use Lang BBQ Smokers® daily . It is because of it's legendary Reverse Flow design and performance.


Look for Ben Lang
