Looking back, I realize that I've never used my PBC skewers. This afternoon, I plan to do so. Bought a nice 1.68 lb sirloin and cubed it up. Quartered a couple of small yellow onions and cut up some red, yellow and orange peppers. The meat and veggies are sitting in the fridge in ziplocks, after being tossed in olive oil and Blackstone steakhouse seasoning.


Having never hung skewers in the PBC, I'm pondering over the best way to do so...and am not up to re-reading 650 pages of PBC appreciation. I'm thinking that I wanna go hot n fast, so I am planning to open the intake all the way and using only a Weber full-size chimney of lit coals...no unlit and no wood chunks.
Does this sound about right? TIA

I've used my skewers once when I was making kabobs. Turned out great. I just left the vents alone and cooked them like I cook everything.

Do you remember approximately how long it took? I'll basically be looking for probe tender and the 130-135 IT range. The meat cubes are roughly 1.75" squared. Just trying to time it for halftime of the Panthers/49ers game.

I just pulled the trigger on the Jr and have a few questions if you don't mind? I've done some searching but with this many pages can't find what I'm looking for. I've seen that some use a certain number of briqs to achieve a specific temperature with the pbc, what's the numbers you all are using for the Jr?
I also wanted to ask about doing wings on skewers. I know I saw it somewhere before with pictures just not sure where. Do they come out crispy top to bottom? How many are you really able to do hanging them? Also, how long of a skewer can you use for wings? I've seen that ribs can get as close as a cpl inches of the coals but not sure if wings could as well.

Thank you for any answers, pictures and help any of you can offer.

I don't have the Jr but to answer your coal count question. Don't do it. I count my coal for the big PBC and sometimes I wish I never did. Too late for me now but I would just follow the he lighting instructions and sit back let the pbc do it's thing

That's my bad. I should have been more specific on that. I was looking more at the number of coals they lite to get a more exact temp. Not the number the basket is filled with.

I don’t alter temp by number of lit briqs. I adjust by cracking the lid late in a cook, or by leaving the lid off for an extra minute or two after dumping the lit briqs. Crisp skin? Not really crisp, in my experience. But still very tasty and decent skin. I like PBC wings.

I would recommend just following the basic guide until you understand how it cooks. The keys to having a successful PBC first cook is keeping the lid in and let it work its magic. If you start chasing temps or get in and out of it a lot, you will not have a great first cook. Once you learn it you can certainly adjust the temps it runs out by doing different things (lighting fewer/more coals, tinkering with the intake, etc). It does not take much to get the Junior going, so I would lean toward lighting less instead of more.

Well it's here boy's and girls. Wiped it down yesterday and sprayed the inside with oil. Filled the basket, took about 8-10 out and lit them up. After they were all ashed over spread them on and let it roll. Kinda guessed at what I thought a quarter open would be and musta been pretty close. She got to 280 and stood (within 10 up & down) there for the next 5hrs ish. It was in the 20's so I can't complain.

Cook cooking soon

Well I would say my first cook was a success. I had a 10lb bag of wings i pulled out of the freezer and amazingly enough was able to get all but a quart bag into the Jr. Sure shocked me. I have a feeling if I'd had 2 more skewers I'd have fit the whole bag.
Anyhow, I rubbed them with killer hogs am and some black pepper and let'em go for about an hour and fifteen minutes. Turned out darn good.
Not real sure what the temps were. Battery died about 10minutes in. It was in the 20's and breezy so I did crack the lid a little bit. Not really sure if I needed to but it worked.

Pit Barrel recommends using 20 lit coals for the Jr.

bwram1, sorry for not getting back to you on your question. I was out of town on vacation. I don't remember how long they took but I don't think more than 30 minutes.

Had a great thanksgiving. I think the Cornish game hen is the perfect size for just 1 person.
