    Greetings all....

    Thought it best to go ahead and join the club........I look forward learning more about using the PBC. I cooked for the first time last night and and it didn't go so well. It was a St. Louis cut rack of ribs, had to trim the bottom as it was too long and rested on the handle of the coal basket...............it was a good 2 - 3 inches from the coals and I still managed to burn the bottom end, had to cut the burned bottom away. I'm sure it's me and not the cooker, but I'll be darned if I know what it is. Maybe I had too much coals, IDK.....eyeballed the 1/4 way open on the vent, if it's off, it sure isn't by much.

    But I'm glad I'm here, look foward to learning.

      Welcome Chuck. I'm not a PBC owner, but there are so many here that I'm sure they'll help you figure out what's going on.

          Welcome, what was your starting method? My guess is lighter fluid. I only say that because the only time I have burned the bottom (it always is overdone on the very end because fire) was hanging right over freshly lit coals. I try to light one side, hang on the other. If I have a full barrel of ribs I let the temp spike and settle before putting them on and I rotate after an hour.
