    Pork Shoulder on a PBJ

    Hey, my first post, don't let my name fool you, it's more to do with campfires rather than smoking. Not new to smoking but new to the Pit Barrel, have a Jr., first two cooks were a turkey and a duck. Learned a lot (don't run the thermo wires under the lid, lol). Put on an 8 lb pork shoulder today, and unlike most I couldn't keep the temp up. It's finishing in the oven now. Close to sea level, followed the directions, as well as the hints I've accumulated here. Could humidity play a part?

    Yeah, I had the regular and 3 butts or 4 briskets definitely required some extra drafting in the form of cracking the lid. I eventually installed a vent on the lid for more precise control.

      Welcome from the California Delta. Some times a piece of meat just has a mind of it own and an attitude.

          I use a small 1/4” diameter twig and just prop one side of the lid. A lot of moisture drops on the coals and it needs a little help.

            I do the same. Just need to keep an eye on temps so they don't spike.

              Welcome to the Pit!

              Running to hot? put a couple of bricks on top, still hot? a little foil on rebar holes. Starting to drop? stick a stick under the lid.

              Like Thomassen said, don't wander too far. watch the temps when doing this. It can and will take off in either direction.

              PBJ, PBC, PBJ!

                Yep. I have a PBJ, and a lot of juice and fat drip on the coals. Cracking the lid will do the trick.

                    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.

                    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
