    thermoworks billows and the PBC

    Does it work with the PBC?

    You can make any combination of temp controller and fan work with a PBC as long as you get the correct adapter. The question is why bother? The whole point of a PBC is to just let it do its thing.

      Makes it a little harder to admit I use one with my PBC, but I do

      I've had the PBC for about 5 years and the Billows for about a year. I was fine without it, but it does bring more predictability to the cooks and I seem to get a lot better wood smoke flavor with it (both improvements I was hoping for with it).

      I changed how I start it, only start with about 12 coals dumped in opposite side from the fan so it doesn't start as hot and the fan needs to blow some for a while and the wood burns up a lot better. It usually ends up settling in around 250-260 eventually without blowing unless I set it hotter.

      I do miss the pure simplicity aspect a little bit and it's definitely not a "must-have" but I couldn't resist getting it to try along with the Signals. I'm happy with the whole combo (fan control, app, and of course the PBC!).

        I don't need one on my Pellet grill, but I thought the fun of the PBC, and other grills were tending to the fire.
