    Stacks

    I finally installed stacks on the PBC yesterday, took a 3/4 3 inch nipple and cut it in half, drilled a hole in the side the same dimension as the outside of the nipple, my shop neighbor was nice enough to weld it for me, but now I have to cook 5 racks of baby backs for the shop Friday, any pointers (they tell me it looks like R2D2) I did 2 racks for Easter and they were great, just haven't loaded up the cooker this much yet, dry rub on the ribs and a Bourbon glaze after

    nice I've been thinking about putting a fan system on the pit barrel but putting the fan up top on the stacks and have a valve where you have part of the valve coming off at a 45 degree angle so the fan would be blowing air up and creating a suction thus increasing the pit temp.

        Yeah, I added 12" to my stacks. Should fill it up with brisket by mid-June.

          OK, I'll bite. What is the theory behind the stacks?

            SRA it increases the air flow, which in turn increases pit temp. More consistent setting than cracking the lid, which most times will overshoot the temp you want.

                Haven't maxed it out yet but I can get two pork butts on a rack if I stand one of the butts on their sides. So figure around 70+ lbs. of pork. Did a dry run a while back and temps only varied about 10 degrees from the bottom rack to the top rack. Can't wait until I use this bad baby in a comp!

                Still need to buy one more Cajun Bandit door with compression latch to complete my mods for both WSM's. Have the extra coal grate and the hinges for both units.

              Maxing it out right now with 30 chicken thighs and 38 legs. Doing a catering for a friend's graduation party. Did 30 lbs. of pork yesterday and it is reheating sous vide right now. Pictures aren't working right now apparently

              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.

Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

              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.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
