    It's been a long time...

    It's Father's day and I'm cooking something in my PBC for the first time in over a year. I'm an exercise in short-attention span theatre as work and another hobby has occupied my time. But I was in new hampshire a month ago and I walked into a hardware store to do a little job for my Aunt's house near the coast... and LOOK at what I found:

    In NEW HAMPSHIRE of all places... a few years back they had B&B lump (which I thought was quite good...) and after Jonesing after this stuff for soooooo long from Jarrod's descriptions I was VERY jazzed about FINALLY getting my hands on some. (my other favorite, Humphreys' is very hard to come by too). I'm running four racks of ribs on this in the pbc right now.

    Nice DENSE big square briqs... hard to light... used 42 royal oak briqs to fire it up....

    I've missed this place....

    Yeah I would typically put somewhat of a layer of Kingsford on top to get things going. Love them dudes...sniff...sniff

      I did use some while up in NH... they are SLOWWW lighting in a chimney! But they DO light at least!

      Once again no big initial spike, but the temp is holding ROCK STEADY at 223F for over two hours... Its' a very breezy day but zero movement on the temperature. I'm very very jazzed!


        Awesome JPP.
        It’s about damn time you got back here. 😁

        That being said I am putting on two racks myself on my PBC. First time doing this as I just recently got this cooker from my brother.

        Cheers 🍻

          Panhead John I hung them. Double hooked.
          3 ribs and I think after the sixth rib.
          Sorry no pics.
          Was my first go round with the PBC. So obviously a learning curve for a new cooker.

          But overall they were pretty good. Not great but good.

          Steve B Yeah, definitely a learning curve first time. My first time hanging ribs was similar, good but not great. I cooked mine a little too long and as a result they were fall off the bone tender. For me, I prefer a little tug to the meat.

        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.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        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.
