    PBBE temp

    What’s a good internal temp for PBBE’s before the braise? The standard 205 degrees? Last weekend I went by time and ended up with asteroid nuggets! Thank y’all.

    Help me: PBBE?

        Definitely not 205, at that point they’d be done. I’ve never checked temp before the braise but I’d guess 150-160.


          What time and temp did you use last time? If they went sideways, then one or the other was out of kilter.

            Or maybe "Looking you're, you're not cooking" syndrome. I avoid that syndrome otherwise I end with . . . well you got the idea.

          Three hours in smoke last time in PBC, didn’t temp them. Cinders. I do take my bacon to 150.

            Hmm... I'll leave this one for the FGC crowd. They will know a lot more about that cooker than me. I don't suppose you know what temp the PBC was running?

          Always settles in around 275-290.


            Set the Bark, braise to tender, set the sauce. EZ PZ.

            4. Enjoy the process, enjoy the smoke, enjoy the cook, so relaxing.
            5. Enjoy a beverage of your choice. PBR?


              SWMBO agreed, PBBE this weekend.
              Thanks for the post.

                Just an FYI. I just went into this on your previous post about PBBEs. Check it out, and let us know how the second round goes, my friend.

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                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!

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                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’.
