    Fatty on PBC?

    I've never tried a fatty before and thought I might try it on the PBC. Has anyone tried this before? I worry the fat coming off may start a conflagration in the pit. Any suggestions?


    Done it. No uncontrolled fire. Fatties were stuffed and bacon-wrapped on the grate.


      Obviously don't hang the darn thing. hahaha. Put it on the grate and as long as you keep the lid closed tight, you shouldn't have any problems I wouldn't think.


        Only time I got a bit of a blow up was splitting the foil on a wrapped butt and about 8 oz of fat spilled all over the coals, nothing else has bothered it.


          Ditto everyone else. I've had my pit barrel turn into a flame cannon when I left the lid off for a few minutes unattended, it was full of 8 racks of ribs dripping delicious flammable juices. So long as you keep the lid on and are intentional with the air flow, it should be very difficult to have anything flame up.


            Thanks all. I'll give it a go this afternoon.

                Sorry, I still don't do digital pics. The fatty cooked fine, but I used too much apple for smoke and it came out too smokey. Texture was dense also. I guess I still prefer my sausage and peppers as taught to me by my Dad 55 years ago.

                Yeah, that will happen. Trust me, you're not the only one here, myself included, that has made that mistake. I usually only use a few chunks when I cook in the PBC. There's always next cook. grezs Keep calm Smoke on!!

            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.

            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.
