Had another opportunity to fire up the PBC today... actually used it as a grill to make 12 1/2 lb burgers. Turns out this lil thing can whip up some great burgers as well :-)

So......my PBC has arrived in the Midwest and scheduled for delivery tomorrow! What should the first cook be?? I was thinking ribs but looking for other suggestions from those that have one of these.

Also, can you cut back on the amount of charcoal in the basket for shorter cooks or do they recommend always using a full basket as they describe in their videos? Thanks for any advice.....just trying to educate myself before it arrives.

Why? Is this some new form of cooking...a mix between direct and indirect cooking?

I highly recommend a load of chicken halves and tri-tip for your maiden cook. Just use the PBC All-Purpose seasoning on the chicken, and their Beef & Game on the tri-tip, per their videos. I guarantee that it'll be the easiest, and probably one of the best meals you've had off of a grill or smoker in quite some time.

The best way that I can explain it is easily summed up in two words: stationary rotisserie. It cooks incredibly evenly with no tending, muss or fuss.

It really is one of those you-have-to-experience-it-to-believe-it things.

If you have a piece of meat where one end is anywhere from 6" to 18" closer to the fire than the other, how can it cook evenly?

In the rib video, the ends near the fire look more done. I can't imagine what the brisket looked like since the point was hooked and the flat was closer to the fire (and it was getting some flare up).

The only advantage I could see is having the fat hit the fire and that add something. I'm trying to understand.

Go watch their tri-tip video and pay particular attention to close to the end where Noah slices the meat. He starts at the thin end and it's bumper-to-bumper perfectly medium-rare.

That's not fancy camera work or editing trickery. I get the same results at home every single time.

Just check out their site, nice units I must say. Too bad they don't make a mini, I could really use a mini.

P.S. I've cooked loinbacks where the thin end is literally 2-3" from the top of the coals and, yes, the little ribs on the thin end were crispy and charred, but not burnt. I'd serve those ribs to a KCBS judge any day (well, if they weren't "enhanced").
