    PP on the E-330: What an improvement over the Q :-)

    Hi, I have just finished my first PP on the Genesis, roughly following the recipe on the site.

    I did it maybe 5 times on my old Q2200, and it was never easy: The temp was not easily taken down to 225°, so the meat was always in danger. On the other hand, the smoker box down in the basement had trouble getting warm.

    I have used a stainless-steel-bowl with some water and a stainless-grate in the bowl to create a two-zone-setup, but it always suffered from the issues mentioned above.

    Now, with the Genesis, it comes down to this:

    1.) Put smoker box on the two flavouriser-bars on the left.
    2.) Start the left burner, turn it fully up until the smoke starts. Turn the right burner on minimum so the grate is at least a little warm.
    3.) Wait for smoke to build and mount the bbq-sensor of the maverick.
    4.) Turn off the right burner, turn the left burner to minimum, wait for the temperature to fall below.
    5.) When temp is below 250°, put pork on right grate
    6.) Watch the temp for 15 minutes.

    I had to adjust after one hour, because 250° were reached again.

    I hit my personal favourite core temp after 11.5 hours with about 5 pounds of PP. The family loved it, and I was much less busy than in the past :-)

    No water-maintenance, no issues with the smoker-box. Good meat, and it would have been possible to mount thrice the amount of meat on the grate :-)



    Awesome job, glad it works so much better than your old one!




        Thx for your encouragement :-)

        One question: Out of habit, I placed the stainless bowl over the burner. I am not sure if this made sense at all. Does it also work well without a cover over the working burner? I used the left-most burner.

        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 Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        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.
