    Shutting down your PBC

    I finally found a good way to shut down the pit barrel. I bought these ceramic magnets at home depot so I could cook on the grate without needing to keep the rebar in. It's amazing how much control the magnets give you for the temperature control. I can get it to hold steady between 210 and 350.
    Today I realized I could use magnets to hold a piece of tin foil over the bottom damper to kill the heat. This is a heck of alot easier and safer than pulling the charcoal basket out when it's smoking hot

    Pretty good idea.

        Check out my post about using a metal bucket (with lid) to put the coals in here (about half way down the first page; pics included): http://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/for...g-temperatures I like this magnet idea too! How long does it take for your coals to snuff out?

          It takes about 30 minutes. I used to lift the charcoal basket out and put it in the Weber to kill the charcoal. The tin foil is much more simple and safe.
