First PBC rib cook went well. My narrative skills aren't the greatest so I'll let the pics do the talking for me.
Did a rack of spare rubbed with PBC all purpose+Plowboys yardbird and a rack of baby back rubbed with Sweet Mesquite (real good stuff) from Costco
I use a chimney to start the fire instead of lighter fluid
Filled the fire basket with the lit briquettes and threw in a few pieces of hickory I had lying around
I use this tool to lower the fire basket in. It's called the OTT grate lifter and I bought two already. Real nice guy named William Ott from N.C. that makes this by hand. Not affliated or anything but he's on ebay if anyone wants one.
It truly is multipurpose. I used it from my grates, dutch oven and now on the PBC.
Anyway, back to the cook. Time to hang the ribs. I also seasoned and hung some potatoes with EVOO, salt, pepper and garlic powder on one of the set of skewers I had laying around which fit the PBC perfectly. Some of you guys have seen the skewers from a previous thread.
Ready to go in. Better shot of them.
Time to let the PBC do it's thing. Yes, as simple as that.
I know a thermometer is not necessary on the PBC hence the simplicity but I still like to have a rough idea of where I'm at so I installed one. Steady cruising at 275ish with the cover on.
At this point I had to leave to house and no one to watch the cook but I was comfortable. I came back at about an hour and fifteen minutes to find it still cruising along and the neighborhood smelling like ribs.:)
At 2 1/2 hours the baby backs were done. I let the spares go for an extra 45 mins, pulled and sauced them and put it back for another 15 or so mins.
The potatoes are ready as well.
Some shots of the baby backs......Came out juicy!
Nice bite through
Clean off the bone
Time for the spares
Side of slaw and the potato. Potato was unbelievably good with a nice smoke flavor like the ribs.
Needless to say dinner was GUUUUUUUUDDD!!
I'm honestly more impressed with the cooker than I ever expected to be. It's simple to start, easy to work, easy to clean and puts out amazing food with minimal effort. I'm starting to feel guilty that I scored this puppy off CL instead of buying directly from Noah/PBC.
Hope you guys enjoyed.
