Okay, so what if a brisket was hung in a PBC horizontally. That alone would increase the gap between basket and meat. I'm trying to look at it in terms of scale. But isn't let's say 250 in a UDS hanging a brisket horizontally the same as 250 hanging one horizontally in a PBC?
But, looking at the vids on the PBC site, even with the brisket 2-3" from the coals, it smoked and went for hours. He carved up a sweet looking brisket.
