The ribs were way overcooked and dry with the end closest to the coals basically inedible. The chicken was not done . I had to part the chicken out and finish some pieces in the oven. I guess I got caught in all the hype about this thing ,but now I wish that I had waited to see more opinions.
As for ribs, I'll continue to use the 3.2.1. method on my BGE.
If you've decided that you're done with the PBC after your 1st cook with it, I will glady take it off your hands.
Give it a second shot though. Don't give up on it so quick. Just with any new cooker, ya gotta take the time to learn to cook on it.
