      What a fun video. What else do you use that gas burner for other than lighting your homemade charcoal chimney's coals?

      Welcome to the Pit. I hope to see more of your posts and videos.

        Hi there Kathryn, hi from sunny UK that's actually my old work burner and I've just bought a better one which has many more jets and gives much more even cook so I'm utilising that burner for lighting my
        charcoal here I am making a Porchetta for inside but going to make one for the coals soon! Forgive the swearing once.

              Long trip just for charcoalโ˜บ
              When I watched the video I thought to myself it looks like the crumbles of charcoal we get in SA. I have found a brand that's made in PE thats better than any other I've used and it's priced better. Think it doesn't get handled as often so stays in better shape.

              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.

              Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              Placeholder

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

              Placeholder

              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.
