    New from Gilroy, Ca

    Recently purchased a Meadow Creek PR36 and the cook is fantastic. One problem I have is that I simply can't get the temp high enough for a great sear. I have been using one chimney of coals, using the top cook shelf, but can only get the temp to about 350! Any suggestions.

    Welcome to The Pit.

    I don't know how much you need to sear, but for my wife and I, I use a charcoal chimney to sear. You can turn it upside down so you don't use as much charcoal. I can sear two filets or two pieces of chicken that way.

      Welcome from Virginia! I really have no experience with that cooker. But I am sure someone will weigh in soon.

                According to Meatheads review, all you would have to do is “load it up”, in your case push the hot coals together so they pile up close to the grate & sear away. Welcome, eat good and have fun!

                          Welcome from St. Cloud, FL. I don't have any experience with the PR36, while it is a nice looking grill it doesn't appear it is designed to get real hot in the chamber. It looks to me like it doesn't allow oxygen from below like a Weber kettle but I can't see everything. The vents on the kettle allow me to adjust the temp inside. Not sure what you can do except to open all air passages fully. Good luck and let us know how you get on with this cooker.

                              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.

                              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’.

                              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!

                              Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.
