    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 :-)

    Regards,

    Detlev

        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.

        Regards,

        Detlev
