    1st load in PCB

    Hello all, just got a PCB and running the first load of KC Ribs today, basically after reading this entire thread I decided to follow Noah's direction this time. I do not have an internal thermometer but have a Maverick ET 732 en route from Amazon. I tried to find a short Webber chimney starter, but it seem the world is out. I have joined the Pitmaster club as it is a great value for the information received. I'll post will pictures of the finished product if I can. Thanks for all the great information you all post.

    Update: here are the pictures, while the family love them, I was not happy, due to mistakes made. From the research I determined , not having a thermometer yet, and being at sea level the cook would take 2 hrs. I checked and they were almost done at 1 1/2hrs. so I sauced one and went another 20 min. Good but a bit tough. The chicken I cooked 1hr 15 min and took out at 155 deg and it was perfect. I now have a Maverick and wil use it to control the cook next time, Thanks for the advice .

    JohnF Check hardware stroes for the chimneys, they usually have them. Welcome to the pit my friend. Lots of PBC clowns around here so don't hesitate to ask for tips and pointers. It helped me enormously when I got mine.

    Welcome, made all good choices so far. I get almost everything from Home Depot or Lowe's because we don't have anything else.

      Try Amazon for the compact chimney. It takes 40 briquettes.

      Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

      A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

      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 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.
