      Turkey got done in 1 hour 45 minutes. Legs little darker than I like, but man, "Crispy Skin!!!"

      At 2.5 hours I'm gonna start barking up the beef. Need a quick cook.

      FYI- I have one thermometer, near the lid, one hanging down towards the middle of the brisket flat, both read within 4 degrees of each other, sometimes the same.

        Fast cook for a bird that big, do anything special? Trying to thaw a 15 pounder now, 5 days in the fridge did nothing.

          I'm about to wrap my brisket at the 3 hour mark. Should get done by the 4 hour mark. Rest for 2.5 hours. Cut, chop, and deliver all bagged up.

          Oh yeh, 187 internal and rising. 334 pit temp.

        I thawed mine for about 10 days to make sure. You got a fridge thermometer?

        I spatched it yesterday, patted it dry, laid it breast up on a wire rack until it was time to cook.

        Generic hypoallergenic rub. Gave a wing to a lady at work from the Thanksgiving bird. She got mad at me. Said I was merely baiting her. Told me to cook her one for Christmas.

          My fridge runs on the cold side indeed, but I thought that would be plenty of time. You know I've only done it 4 times in the last 2 months... I need to write this stuff down!

        I can't figure out how you're getting meat done (and good) that fast on the PBC.. Got mine 10 days ago and I've had 4 cooks. 1 split chicken was good. 3 PBs not so much. My 5.5 pounder yesterday took 5+ hours to get to 158. At that point my heat was all over the place... Finished in the oven and it was ok at best.

          Not sure why your heat would be all over the place, these things run pretty darn consistently. What temp did your PBC run at. By what you describe my guess is 230-250.

        I'm about to get a brisket done in 3 hours 21 minutes. Fastest one yet. Done.

        Key to this was A LOT of heat under the other rebar kicking a turkey's rear end, so I wasn't burning the end of the flat, but still had plenty heat. Pit temp was around 333-345. I also went to the grate early to bark up both sides. Fat cap first.

        How are you cooking the butts. Hanging, on the rack??

          On the PBC I'm hanging on the rebar. Looks just like yours but not as good. Ha! I'm inserting the hooks per Noahs video. (one under bone and one under the muscle across from it) My first PBs hung a little horizontal/sideways. Yesterday's I made sure it was verticle/up and dowm. It's gotta be heat. I'm spiking in the 300's and then dropping hard. Venting around 200 and overshooting to 275. Then quickly back to 200. Never drops under 200 and averages mid 2's but stalls at 150ish. Same grocer and cuts on my vertical smoker hit 160 quick and then stall. I'll post the specifics in the PBC 101 thread later tonight.

            Check you intake, because it almost has to be that or the coals aren't getting lit well enough. Kind of hard to say when you let it spike to 300 and it drops to 200, that really sounds like your intake not being opened enough.

            You can get a PBC for less than a good cambro! I love my PBC for what it does, but I do want to work with logs. No tool is the best for everything.

          After 2 hours and 30 minutes of resting....brisket was perfect. 1st pic is the top of the point that was separated. 2nd pic is the bottom of the point. No injecting, nothing added when I wrapped. Plenty juiciness. 3rd pic is the flat. Click image for larger version

            You are the brisket king, that's for sure. Jerod Briskessard.

            I too once had a full packer get cambro-ready at the 4 hr mark. Pit Boss probably remembers that. It totally floored me.

                I know this is from a long time ago, but can you describe for me how you cook chuck roast? I’m a new member and you sure seem knowledgeable. Thanks

              Nice chuck roast sammich. Little Mayo. 2nd pic is the chopped brisket. 3rd pic is a little squeeze to produce that Select Shine. Click image for larger version

                I'll leave the king stuff to those who cook that stuff for a living.

                But that crap sure smells good when you know you can't have any of it.

              Very nice cook(s), Jerod. Every time I see one of your brisket photos I want to get my knife and fork out. Glad to hear that your turkey cook was smokin' as well!

                  I slice up the two muscles (hot) and combine them through a grinder with a 12mm plate. Works great.

                  Who said anything about cleaning up dishes. I gots a gooooood stack going near the sink.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

              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.
