Lang to have Booth in New York City Competition


September 2013, New York, NY– Ben Lang, creator of barbecue's revolutionary reverse flow offset firebox will be present at the StarChefs.com SMOKE@ICC barbecue competition in New York City. The event will take place on Saturday, September 28 on Pier 57 in New York. Lang's company, Lang BBQ Smokers will have a boot at the even on Pier 57 in New York harbor where you can chat with Ben about his favorite subject, what smoker cooks the best barbecues in the world...a Lang of course!


Ten teams will compete from around the country including Forked River, NJ, Atlanta, GA, Austin, TX, New York, NY, New Orleans, LA, San Francisco, CA, Essex Junction, VT, Houston, TX, Philadelphia, PA and San Antonio, TX. Each brings their own cooking style, sauces and techniques to the competition. The best part is visitors get to sample all ten teams' finished product for the price of admission.


Surrounded by skyscrapers and the Hudson River, half of the really lucky contestants will be cooking on a 60" Lang BBQ Smokers cooker. Their challenge will be to cook brisket, on of barbecue's most popular meat selections, and while New Yorkers may not be known around the country as barbecue experts there is one thing for sure, they know excellence. They demand it, so you know all the competitors will be bringing their A game to the event. Ben Lang knows it too so he will be bringing his hand crafted smokers to the event with one idea in mind, "New York City people know food. They will be looking for the best, so we're bringing the best cookers anyone could ever want. The rest is up to the chefs."


A Real Reason to be Proud


Ben Lang has reason to be proud. The Grand Finale winner of season 5 of BBQ Pitmasters competition was Rod Gray of Pellet Envy out of Kansas City, MO who won the championship cooking on an 84 Lang BBQ Smokers® . Lynnae Oxley of Sugars Barbecue in Portland, OR was the winner of the "One Bite" contest and she was cooking on a Lang as well.


During the SMOKE@ICC event, the Lang BBQ Smokers® grilling experts will be on hand to answer questions. Lang BBQ Smokers® is a sponsor of the event and Ben Lang couldn't be more proud, "We are really looking forward to going north to show what great barbecue you can make when you're 'cooking on a Lang',".
