And we didn't burn one bit of the chicken!
You gotta cook by feel, that's the only way you can call yourself a true pitmaster. I dont wanna put words in any particular members mouth, but I have a feeling they will agree with this underlying message.
Well, congratulations. You just won the award for one of the most arrogant posts ever to grace the pages of our forum.
Oh, wait, we have no award for that.. probably because attitudes like that are not what we're about here.
First, lets address the term "PBC Sheeple"..in your opening sentence, which set the tone for the rest of your drivel. The PBC is a somehat new product, and if its not, then at least to us here it is.. The frenzey started with a few members excitement after buying the unit and posting their findings here... This was the same type of excitment when the 22inch WSM came out, or when we did a group buy for XL-BGE... members buy products, and post about it. Its what we are about, and to label or belittle anyone who is posting about new products is out of line. What do you think it would do to a new member, who found us in a google search for the PBC, or any product, only to find your post. Do you think they will start posting about, or asking about it after seeing an established member labeling those that are doing exactly what they came here to do? Probably not.
So, lets break down your post... a bunch of members review a product, and give it a proverbial a+.. then it comes along with a crazy discount thru kingsford.. which makes even more people buy it, and give it good reviews.. and the discount still stands.. Then, folks discover that the builders customer service is top notch.. which gives it even more credibility.... and MORE people by it...... and based on all the good press, even I by a batch... to the tune of 5 of them to give away as gifts to our staff.. it fit the budget and gave us a chance to see what all the hoopla is about.. and guess what! The first 20 folks were right..
Then you, in your unfounded infinite wisdom, come along and call those that bought the product, and know it first hand, "sheeple"..? Oh, get over yourself. Theres a Bandera Pit crew that you would fit into perfectly, but your attitude sucks for here.
Moving right along.. your next little tidbit....
'What ever happened to just doing the research, seeing how something g operates in real life and if it fits your budget, buy it. This is how I grew up bbqing.'
Hmm.. research.. sounds like..?
Look something up on the internet.. find good reviews??? Check!
Track down some folks that have it, talk to them.. Do they like it? Yes? Check!
Go to Manufacturer site, check pricing.. find sale.. Fit Budget? YES! Check!
By your very own definition, the 'sheeple' did exactly what you say you have done growing up...
Welcome to the club.
Now, the fun one. Did you read a book or something? or just watch alot of BBQ Pitmasters Season 1-3.
Burning down wood to coals in large fire pits, cooking for hundreds of people, if you can manage this his amount of coals, you can manage any pit. Any good pitmaster knows a good pit has to have an adjustable intake and exhaust to learn to regulate the temps depending on their geographic location and type of fuel for heat and if the situation warrants different wood for smoke.
What a load of crap. A pit master can cook on ANYTHING period. Show me the adjustable intake and exhaust on a hole in the ground with a pig on a spit 2 feet above it. Show me the intake and exhaust on a cinder block pit, with a sheet steel roof and cooking a side of beef. Wheres the intake and exhaust on a caja china(do u even know what that is?) A pitmaster can make a pit out of anything, anywhere, and make it work. You thinking you need an intake and exhaust proves you have alot to learn. A pitmaster is someone who can cook on anything you throw at him and overcome challenges with a cool head.
RE: Geographic Location.
You show me a 'pitmaster' who told you they give a rats ass about there geographic location (or even the available wood)and I will show you someone who is playing you and has made an accurate assessment that they can.
Seems you think
you know alot, but actually still have alot to learn. My recommendation is to start watching and absorbing, and stop repeating what you think will impress people.
Whatever happened to the true pitmasters that learned from trial and error, And did what worked for them, not what everyone else says to do.
Youre surrounded by them, just to full of yourself to notice.
Now, with all this being said, and considering your recent history and pissing contest with redneck cooker who earned himself a lockout, while you were given the benefit of the doubt, I would ditch the mightier than thou attitude before your next post.
