    they would probably want royalties or some nonsense... actually, they might see it and get in on the ground floor for an investment opportunity? then you could shoot some sweet "night vision style" promos for the SnS, i hear the daughter is into that kinda thing...?

    pittkappasig You are a natural artist. Your diagram is clear, concise, yet speaks volumes. The ONLY thing I worry about is using the Hilton logo..... might be some legal issue there or something. Bummer otherwise. Lol!

    Just wanted to send out a quick update: the BBQ was a success, thanks to everyone who helped me get thru it. 23 of the 25 gallon sized bags of pulled pork were eaten and i came back with no ribs. people were commenting all day about the QUE i provided (even the people who dont usually eat BBQ tried it and said it was delicious) one very nice lady wouldnt stop talking about the KC style sauce (thanks MH) and the Jack Daniels bottle was completely gone (thanks again MH... well just thanks for everything, i guess) I added some japs to my cole slaw and people could taste it and noticed it was much better than the standard slaw. the baked beans were also completely cleaned out.

    Anyway, big ups to the everyone who helped me out. there was no way i couldve pulled this off without you all, this site and this forum. David Parrish the last photo is a schematic i drew up while i had to to leave the party for a 2 hour work meeting (we started cooking at 7 AM and i had a 930 AM meeting but the party didnt start until 130 PM) it is me explaining how to add coals to the SnS. I think you could tie that into your user manuals, no? lol!

    they left for a week, that's why their house looks like hell, lol. But I do appreciate the kind words from someone who has produced a brisket the likes of which mine eyes have never seen.

    Here's your problem David Parrish you are too damn smart. My solution was to run 9.5 lbs on the PBC all nite and fire up the weber/SnS (by the way you should consider approaching them about licensing) at 5 AM, take the PBC cook off and send the barrel on its way. Alas. It is 140 and you are sleeping and I'm sitting here like a dumbshit...

    David Parrish in your wisdom and knowledge of your creation... how much shoulder do you think i can stick in the SnS and still have it done in a reasonable amount of time? the fat caps were trimmed pretty close, so the whole 18 lbs are going in if i can do it... if it just has to be one of a halves for the sake of time, it shall be so. i ran 2 whole 10 lbers through at different times and each took about 14 hrs, as a reference for my location and climate.

    Argh! That stinks about the meat falling off the hooks. This is why I always transition butts to the food grate once they hit 170F.

    You should be able to get both halves on the kettle w/SnS combo. To save time cook at 225F until the butts hit 150F, then crank the pit temp heat up to 275F and blow through the stall. Once the meat hits 175F to 180F you can let the pit temp drop to 225F and then cook low and slow until the meat hits 203F or probe tender.

    i still rolled out a solid 24 lbs pre cook weight today, so im not complaining.... just not as smooth as one would like. "on the third day, he rests" was my motto tomorrow but, its back at it again, tomorrow 5 AM. maybe i should win one of those Gold Medal contests and get a higher capacity rig, lol. im learning that a kettle and a PBC is a bit rough for 100 person cook without Jerods crazy scheduling and modifications, that is.

    burgers, dogs, flank steak and ribs all will be happening day of... maybe im a bit in over my head here, hah.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
