For my fist cook I prepared Tri Tip. It was very good. Not the best I've ever made, but very tasty.
Last night I cooked two chicken halves and it was the best chicken I've ever made. Very tender, juicy and flavorful.
This weekend will be ribs (with pron).
I realize that this cooker isn't for everyone, but it definitely fills a niche in my backyard.
It's very simple to use and so far my results have been great. For me it will be my go-to chicken cooker, and for that alone it was worth the investment.
Can you elaborate on this a bit more. I know you can cook pretty much anything on it, but I've seen how people produce some great chicken with it. How would you compare the results you got on the chicken between the PBC and your other smoker?
