Bob,
Possibly...

Based on the size, the LSU26 can be used with a 2x8 (it is recommended the hanger height be at least 60% of the joist height for stability), but the demand load will need to be calculated to confirm if the hanger has adequate capacity.

The LSSU28 may be another option.

Thank you!
