    Checking in from FL

    I've been around for a few years, but have never posted...mainly playing voyeur for opinions and techniques. I recently moved to Riverview FL and the movers lost my COS (I don't know how that even happens) and damaged my PBC. Luckily I've had my 22" Kettle for charcoal grilling and my Char-Broil gas burner for the weeknight cooks. I just got the PBC going again and just bought an Oklahoma Joe's Longhorn so I'll be modifying it as I assemble it and hopefully have something to offer the group through that experience. Thanks for sharing and letting me look over your shoulders and learn. I'll try to contribute now that I've 'broken the seal' on posting!

                      Welcome to The Pit from Madison, WI. We look forward to your participation. My guess would be your "lost" cooker was "found" and is cooking for a family member or friend of one of your movers.

                        Looks like we share a couple passions. I'm an Air Force pilot and obviously love BBQ. Tell me you're into classic cars and we'll get along just fine!

                          Welcome from Colorado ... you'll definitely want to replace the PBC (not so sure about the COS, though )

                            To late...I just assembled (and mod'd) an OK Joe's Longhorn this afternoon! Haha. I researched the big boys, but I'm in for less than $450 including mods right now. Especially with moving every few years, I don't want my lifetime pit to 'get lost'.
