    It's raining, it's pouring...

    What the heck? Raining? In July? In Los Angeles??? What's a fella to do? Why fire up the PBC of course! My girls have been whining for pulled pork, so threw a small (4 lb) boneless one on the grill after a 24 hr dry brine and rubbin' with MMD. I'm still a newbie with this cooker, but I've been logging all of my cooks using the nice cooking log that I've modified for my needs. I keep all kinds of notes on the log sheets, and they really help with follow on cooks! Highly recommend this, at least for us newbie types! Anyway, kept the pit outta the rain (feels like Florida here) under my 2nd story balcony. Put it up on bricks to try and avoid burning the lawn...

    Anywho, the butt came out FAB. Second one on the PBC, and I have gone from "eh" about pork butts and pulled pork to "when is my next one!!"! Just can't believe how these (and everything I've cooked frankly) come out of the pit! Enjoy the pics.

    Nice! Of course, every time it rains, your daughters will want bbq! Bring on El Nino, eh?


      You used the grate. Is there any difference than with hanging the meat?

        I've hung and done on the grate. Both came out amazing and I really couldn't tell much difference. I usually hang when I need more room than the grate will hold.

        Yeah. What NashvilleSparty said. Besides, I simply LOVE cleaning that grill afterwards! NOT... Since this one was boneless I was a bit worried about loosing it off the hook. Probably not an issue since I did remove it and wrap it...
