I did my 2nd cook on the PBC last Sunday. I filled charcoal basket up and added 2 fist size chunks of wood.Instead of using charcoal lighter though I then proceeded to light it with my weed burner. I then came back about 15 minutes later and could tell I had a pretty hot fire going. I put my Maverick probe through one of the holes for the rebar and watched the temp rise to about 420 quickly. Once I put the lid on though and waited 30 minutes temp had dropped to 325. I put on a rack of ribs for the cook and temp dropped to 300. Settled in for the rest of the cook at about 290. I think like my UDS when you need to raise the lid you had better get if off and back on as quick as possible. I am so far very happy with my PBC. Got a little rib cookoff this Saturday and I am going to use it. I named mine the Black Assassin. LOL
