    PBC, Guru fan, Fireboard 1

    Up here in Vermont keeping a steady temperature over a low and slow cook is a challenge. Ambient temperatures vary widely. In addition, I want to smoke in below zero temperatures.

    So, I bit the bullet and bought a Guru fan and proper cabling to go along with the Fireboard 1 that I already had.

    It works great. Once the temperature settles don't it hold to less than plus/minus 3 degrees F.

    The cable adapter from Fireboard is crazy expensive for what you get, and almost expensive enough to make upgrading to the Fireboard 2 a good option. You don't need the cable adapter for the Fireboard 2.

    Feel free to send me any questions. I used the information on this forum to get the confidence to pull the trigger.

            Welcome to the Pit! We like pictures here. Some of us have a PBC. Would love to see your setup in action.

              Welcome to the Pit. I'm glad the temp controller setup on your PBC is working well for you. It's a huge convenience, for sure.

              Can you post a photo? I'm guessing you used a BBQ Guru XL Grill Dome Adapter for the barrel opening and Pit Viper fan which you attach to the original Fireboard's drive cable?

                Thanks for the warm welcome.

                I'm in Florida for a month getting away from the last of the Vermont winter. Of course, pictures when I get back.

                As an aside, I was considering the Masterbuilt Gravity Series but there seems to be so many problems on the Facebook group that I'll stick with the PBC.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                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.

                GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredáZone


                GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                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.
