    I just loaded up the Pit and realized that I have a "Trifecta" going on here. Baby Back Ribs, Split Chicken Breasts (skin on and bone in for the wifey) and a Chuckie! Yes, the chicken is BARE, the wife likes it that way so she can doctor it up any way she wants later on.

    As you may be able to see my modified grate. I did encounter a little problem with it today once I put on that big chuck steak that's about 4 lbs. The grate wants to tip over because of all the weight on the one side. I was able to weigh down the other side for balance but it's something to keep in mind.

    Looks good, and yeah you have to keep the tabs in just the right spot to keep from dumping.


      That is a well seasoned PBC.

        Yep! Thanks for noticing! It's been used almost every weekend since it was purchased.

          heh heh... good job!

          Mine is getting that way too... kinda hard to get the lid off when it is cool

        Ribs were FANTASTIC, chicken is cooling for the wife to have later in the week and the chuckie is wrapped up and in the cooler. I got a little sidetracked and didn't pull it until it hit 214. We'll see how it comes out after spending a couple of hours in the cooler.


          SRA chuckies are great going a tad higher than a pork butt. Only delicifies them more!


            Wow what a pretty picture, SRA . I take some time to stabilize my Great Grate before adding the meat. As I recall, if the tab is at the center of the bar segments, it's pretty solid.

            You're makin' me hungry.



              Everything came out great! The ribs were out of this world. Maybe the best I've ever made. The wifey loves the chicken and the chuckie shredded nicely. My son and I had what I coined as "Chuckie Cheese's" last night for dinner. Basically a hamburger bun topped with the shredded beef, melted provolone and Famous Dave's Spicy pickle slices. Wonderful! I brought out the BBQ sauce but as usual there was no need for it. My poor BBQ sauce is starting to feel neglected!

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              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.
