Not happy with my Pit Barrel
Second cook, first was ribs, now chicken
Ribs- Had to open up the intake full after the fire stalled and ended up cooking longer than should have. I think the ribs took on a little of the smoldering charcoal taste. Had the intake about 1/4 as recommended. The end closest to the fire had charred a little as well.
Chicken- Opened intake to half and at 2:20 pulled the chicken and was not quite done to where I like. The skin was a little rubbery and meat did not take on much flavor.
A little nervous about cooking turkey for Thanksgiving in it, so any comments are welcome.
BTW, I set it up after watching the videos per web site.
