    Thank you for the welcome. Your posts and guidance on the PBC have taken a great deal of guess work out of this adventure. Thank you so much!

    Yes sir, I'm in Huntsville, AL. Nice to meet another local member!

    I hope my first brisket goes like this. I've had my PBC since November of 2019 and I have yet to have the courage to do it.

    Welcome to the Pit, HSVbbq . It's good to hear that you're liking your PBC. I've been smoking on mine for years, and continue to rave at how simple the setup is and how delicious the results are.

    Split a chicken one of these days and cook that. You'll think you've died and gone to PBC heaven. Here are some chicken on the PBC tips, FWIW.

    So, I picked up a 9.85# Prime full packer from Costco on Thursday evening and smoked it on Friday. I whipped up some Big Bad Beef rub or similar with what I had in the cabinet (hot paprika instead of chipotle).

    It took right at 10 hours with an average PBC temp of 250F to get it to 203F internal. I had pulled it at 185 to wrap in aluminum foil, then back on the grate for the remainder. I did the faux cambro rest for 2 hours, then it was time for the reveal.

    WOW! It was fantastic! As much as I love pulled pork, the brisket was 100X better. It was a hit with the whole family and there are only a few remaining chunks despite being gone most of the weekend.

    Thanks for the comments and advise everyone. I still have the kettle with sns and the Genesis. I love the PBC! I'm going to try a brisket this weekend. It's looking like smokers are similar to motorcycles, each has their purpose and you can't have just one.

    IMO, adding a PBC to a Weber / SNS is more of a cross grade and not an upgrade since both excel in different ways. Welcome to the pit HSVbbq.

    Glad you like your PBC. I just did a small 3 lb. pork butt on my PBC yesterday for some pulled pork sandwiches. The PBC is the equivalent to a pellet pooper in that it almost 'set it and forget it'. You can play around with the temp a little bit by pulling out the rods, but still very hands off.

    SnS is not worth the money...just my 2 cents. I gave mine away. But you should get a Vortex. That little piece of hardware is gold.

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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees.
