    Charcoal

    Has anyone tried FOGO lump in their PBC? Yay or nay?

    #2
    I have not, but lump works great in the PBC.

    Noah from PBC said that he uses lump almost exclusively in the PBC.

        I’ve tried most. A basket full of B&B Char logs give me 24 + hours at 225F in the PBC.

          The Char Logs do not burn too hot in PBC? Mine settles in around 275 degrees with KBB.

          webwolff char logs do not burn hotter, if anything they burn a bit less hot but for much longer.

        I have FOGO lump. I have not tried it in the PBC because I’ve gotten such solid predictable use with B&B briquettes. Maybe I should try it once to see how it compares.

          Red Man What method of setting up the char logs in the basket do you use? All dumped in randomly, stacked a certain way, etc. A charcoal that burns cooler rather than hotter for my PBC would be desirable to me. I look forward to your detailed answer.....also the long burn time is intriguing.

            Alabama Smoke I stand all the char logs up (with the hollow center vertical). Then dump the lit briquettes on top.

        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.

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 InfraredZone


        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.
