    PBC not for Me

    Trying to understand why so many pitmasters like the PBC I googled PBC
    Now I am even more confused.

    Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), formerly known as primary biliary cirrhosis, is a chronic liver disease resulting from progressive destruction of the bile ducts in the liver


    I believe you may be confusing medical with mechanical.
    In this particular case mechanical trumps medical hands down.

      TLA Three Letter Acronym: PBR = TLA
      I figured that out myself.

    When I joined I was trying to figure out what MCS was that seemed to afflict so many here. A quick search brought me to the wiki page for Multiple Chemical Sensitivity which one of the many causes could be smoke. Fortunately with contex clues I figured it out before I put all my gear on Craig's List.

    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.
