No mods so far. I am interested in any ideas that come up here.

I've been using a disposable pizza pan as an ash catcher but think I need to do the more permanent mod. otherwise, just some sheet magnets to shut it down faster.

All the cool kids have a PBC, but remember everybody hates the cool kids, except other cool kids, and those needing a date Saturday night, or have access to beer.

Stubbs is excellent but I've used many different types of all natural briquettes, never have used KBB. Unless I get lazy I use 75% briquette 25% lump and about a beer can size chunk of pecan. My percentages may be more exact at times than others due to beer consumption. Also have used Kingsford Comp and find it an excellent product.

I have had no problems with magnet strips melting. They show absolutely no signs of wear or damage at all

Tried the Stubbs charcoal on a packer brisket this weekend (Sunday) about a 10 hour cook, wrapped at 165....Came out very good, just the flat was very slightly dry (Probably me, not the charcoal..)

I'm hooked on Stubbs now - Good burn and low ash....

Anyone know of an interface I can use to log temps and display them graphically on my laptop? (maybe I'll post that in another thread...)

I love my PBC. I like to use Stubbs and kingsford competition. I've done a couple of things to my PBC, but I don't have any pics since I'm out of town. The first and most important mod was my UDS probe mod. Grab an angle grinder and slice a slit into the lip of the drum so I can fit my two maverick probes in there. Just lay the meat down and put the wires into the slit, no feeding the wires through any grommets.

Second, I replaced the screw on the intake with a stainless steel wing nut and bolt. That way I can easily open or close the intake as I please. Then I stuff a piece of tin foil in there to cover up the open space when the intake is in closed position. That way I can snuff out the coals.

Lastly, I welded a small 90 degree elbow onto the bar that goes across the firebox. I used the rest of the stainless steel rod to fashion a hook so I can now grab the firebox with my hook when using the minion method. This has made using the minion method much easier, since I don't have a torch. I also fashioned a pizza pan ash catcher which I can also remove with my hook. I'm always looking for ways to improve and tinker, so share your ideas!!!

If you can drill 3/4" holes on it, you can buy convert kits to transfer it to a REVERSE flow

What are you guys using under the cooker? I just ordered mine, but I'm nervous the heat will mess up the deck bump out that I have for my grilling area.

I have a wood deck, I put one of those metal (aluminum) pans, that go underneath a hot water tank, under mine.
