View Full Version : Battle Box first cook - PRON

05-07-2015, 10:35 PM
Cooked this a couple weeks ago but never had a chance to post. Great and easy cooker. Almost as easy as my WSM.

Came up to temp (about 250) in about 30 minutes. I used the minion method since that is what I am used to with the WSM. Foiled the water pan and used it dry, no sand, just empty.

Thanks for looking.

Can you tell any taste difference between using the BB and WSM?

That's a beautiful thing! I too cook on my deck and have wondered about the weight of the battle box or the distance to the deck being an issue. You proved to me that's no issue! That's definitely on my lust list.

Really nice Battle Box! I'm getting one early next year.

Hard to say. The smoke was almost as good but I didn't have a rub to put on it so I'd say this one was lacking. When I make ribs it will be a better comparison.

Nice looking smoker it caught my eye. I have some WSM's also and would like more feedback on the taste difference also so let me know if you don't mind.
