Thanks Pharp - also hope that little half ham fits the half grate on the PBC. I'm a little worried about airflow and extended cooking times. Does anyone have pics of their turkeys and hams together in PBC love?

You could hang the ham.

I thought that too, but want to foil and glaze - easier on the grate

Sound like a daunting task. I could help if others are interested.

My thought also. Unless we get a shiny new Minis thrown in each.

Looks good to me neighbor!
I think it's a good deal unless the lid doesn't fit well or the bottom is burned out.

I know absolutely nothing about them and never cooked on one but am curious due to this thread. I'd like to try it but don't know if this is a good deal. And hello neighbor. Mesa AZ huh. Whereabouts in Mesa?

It's not easy but it's going to help newbies a whole lot.
I tried to read through the whole thread before I got my PBC. It's just impossible.

I think starting with approx. cook time for different type of meat a great start.
Then tips and tricks. I had trouble keeping the temperature high. I got a great advice on using folded foil to keep the lid cracked open which I never thought about. Great advice like that really helps newbies.

I posted my first experience with the PBC a few pages ago and didn’t mention that I noticed an uneven burn pattern the next day. Definitely seems related to the air intake where coals burned completely but in the back of the coal basket opposite the intake coals were whole and some unburned. On the left size beneath where two racks of ribs hung the coals may have been kept from burning completely by the dripping fats. Solution would be to rotate the charcoal basket midway through cook but that means removing foods.

Yep, this uneven burn pattern is a common issue. One way to combat is to pour your lit coals over the back of the basket so the coals burn towards the intake.

This is also why I started doing half basket for cooks less than 6 hours. I would hang my ribs over the empty side. Prevented juice from dripping and putting out coals.

What STL said. Or if you have an ash rake or a grate tool, you can rotate the basket with ease without removing any food.

I agree that this would be a great help for those new to the thread. Is there a way (with mod help maybe) to insert a post (or a couple of posts) on the first page? Maybe several posts that each cover a topic? Just thinking out loud. I'd be willing to help pull info from old posts.
