    Smoking Bacon on the PBC?

    Has anyone smoked bacon on the PBC? I've got some pork belly curing right now but would like to hear about any other experiences or tips.

    I received my PBC a few weeks ago but have been working many late hours. the bacon cook will likely be my first chance with the new cooker...

    Search in the Pit Barrel sub-forum, I'm pretty sure Ernest has done some.

      Several folks have smoked bacon in the PBC using Meathead's recipe. It will take a while to search for the posts here in The Pit. I hope that sooner/later there will be a more effective search engine available. My advice: just jump right in and do it! That's my plan as soon as I get my mitts on some pork belly.

          I have as well. I think the best machine to do Bacon on is the Weber with the SNS.

            I have a SnS...but I also have about 20 pounds of bacon to do. I think the PBC might be better for a large batch.

            I did my smoked meatloaf using the SnS. Still have a lot to learn, but I think I'm really going to like that gadget...

              I'll give it a shot and report back with my findings. I'm at that strange, awkward point...everybody loves what I've been able to produce, but I'm not quite sure of my skills to guarantee a solid result every time out. So I overthink everything...

                I know exactly what you mean... all my cooking lately has been satisfying and well-received, but I still start every cook by scouring the site and this forum to see what Meathead and this community might have to contribute!

                Just did the bacon and it came out pretty good. Maybe a bit salty. I have a bit of a learning curve with the PBC, but the product performed as advertised!

                I think we're going to get along just fine...

                  Good to hear, Livermoron . Your relationship with your PBC sounds like a match made in heaven. Have fun with it!

                  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.

                  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.
