    Thanks for the tip/feedback. That's how I will probably do it to make sure I have a good startup. I never had any issues before, but the size of these briquets threw me off a bit, count-wise.
    Thanks again to all, and that's what makes this forum so grate! (lol)

          Took your advice to make sure it was well lit before adding meat, worked out great! Thanks again!

        Very Nice! Looks My-T- Fine from where I am sitting!

          Has anyone noticed a difference in lighting/cooking on the PBX vs PBC? Do you find that the PBX burns hotter and how do you alter your lighting/cooking methods compared to the great recommendations on this forum for the PBC?

            Where did the PBX that Spinaker reviewed go?

            If it's any help, the lighting procedure worked well with my PBCjr.

            My PBX runs between 280 and 300, for the first few hours, but settles into the 270 range.
            I fill the basket , for the amount and time I need, and put 30 in the chimney. I do the 15-10-10 method.
            I just did a turkey (13.5lbs), with 70 briquettes in the basket and 40 in the chimney (I knew I wanted to go hotter). 15-10-10 method. Only one rebar diagonally. It ran at @360 the whole cook. Took one half to reach 160 IT in the breast at 1 hour and 35 minutes.
            The second half took 2 hours.
