    Hello and thank you to the PBC Pitmaster Club community

    Hey all,
    This is Ben from the DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia) area. Just wanted to say hello and thank you all for your help (even if you didn't know you were offering it) during the first few months of my PBC adventures. Just moved and finally had the proper outdoor space for a smoker, so got a Weber Genesis II and a PBC for my smoking needs.

    Have had some early temperature struggles (the pit kept wanting to settle around 220 degrees or so, which was making cook times longer), but I've had more success recently following the fzxdoc methods to a T.

    Finally feeling like I'm hitting my stride, here's a photo of the Thanksgiving turkey, some SRF beef ribs and the kill2grill al pastor.

    Happy holidays/new year to everyone!

      Those are great photos! While I don't have a PBC, I am never less than amazed at the advice folks give here for fire management and temping on such a wide variety of cooking implements. You have an issue...someone has a solution.

                            Those are some nice-looking cooks, bkwildcats . The PBC is a cooking machine, for sure. I'm glad you're enjoying yours.

                            Thank you for the shout out; glad I could be of some help. I get so much help from others on this site about so many things that it's nice to be able to help someone as well now and again.

                              Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                              Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                              Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. 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.

                              Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker


                              Green Mountain’s portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.

                              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!

                              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. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
