    Thanks @lkapigian.  Unless you are doing the "change the water frequently" or some other magic there is no way that will thaw by Sunday as you well know.  But just get the surface thawed enough for the rub and it falls into the frozen protein cook process. 
    You must have a huge group you are cooking that for.  Whomever is gonna be eating extremely well.  Have fun with that one.  Which rig gets the assignment?
    Thanks my friend, that’s about what I was thinking … my heart says cook on the offset , my body says the gravity feed , I will play it by ear lol

    @littlerascal56 - that looks like a sweet rig.  First time with a drum style cooker?

    Im a little late to the party this year, but new tires for the kids ride. Could have used the studs today in the freezing rain.

    I ordered ours as a Christmas present for the wife. Luckily I was able to schedule the delivery for December 23rd and not have to worry about how to hide. Could have have had it here on Monday. 

    I honestly have no idea what I bought. There is such a wide variety in prices. Hopefully it is the right one.

    Have you considered a wrap for that house?  I’m ordering a wrapped Mini Cooper for my wife, she’s going to love it.


    I sent this to my LV buyer.

    Edit:. He said it was super tacky and no way would he be caught dead in one.

    So when is the big move (this home was built in South Carolina)? Did you have to pay extra to have your home listed on architecturaldesigns.com or did you get a discount for letting them use your new home in their advertising?


    Might want to think before using stock internet images lol

    Loaded basket yesterday around 9 am (charcoal briquettes).  It came up to 250 in about 10 minutes.  Seasoned it till lunch, then threw on this rack of ribs.  Wife was impressed with the ribs, and I was impressed that it ran all day and stayed 240-250 without adjusting air.  I’m really liking this drum, and it cleans up so easy.

    @littlerascal56 - many thanks as I intend to gift my PBC ( 6 yr owner) to my son and go with the Bronco.  I have done a good amount of homework since your initial post and it has been quite positive.  I need a new toy, granted an upgraded toy from the PBC.

  • I put some of the high heat (Ron’s) Permatex on the bottom & top air vent flanges, and around the seam (inside the drum), so it’s very airtight.  I ran top vent 100% open, and bottom vent on 1- which is about 1/4” open.  Amazed how well temp stayed.  I also had an RTD calibrator on it, and the factory thermometer was within 10-15 degrees of my calibrator all day.

  • After I pulled ribs, I played with the vent setting.  Opening that vent slightly made temp rise in less than a minute.  It reacts very quickly to an air adjustment.

    @littlerascal56 - thanks for the additional insights.  I was game for a new toy and your comments sealed the deal.  Much appreciated.

    I’ve used the pit barrel cooker for ribs, chicken halves and Tacos Al pastor. There is definitely something about the cooked over coals experience that is worth pursuing. I’m down with the simple pit barrel cooker because it’s American made and veteran owned. Not the best or sexiest barrel cooker, but one of the first, simplest and American out there. Please consider when evaluating. Cheers!

    Funny, with all my cookers and gadgets and other accoutrements, I have never bought a PBC.  I have eyed them since they first showed up.  Hopefully one day I will come into possession of one.

    If anyone wants to trade a Traeger for one, I am game.

    @pgprescott - I have owned and used a PBC for the past 6 years as this forum prompted the buy.  Just time for a new toy-the PBC is going to be gifted to my son. 
    BTW As far as I know I am American made and I do know I am a veteran.  =)

  • Based on current events, I’m starting to think some of the red-hot stock tips I have gotten on here may not be as good as I thought they would be. Crap.

    It is mildly entertaining that a dozen people still like that house pic.  So much of life really does boil down to paying attention to detail.
