So I add a "crazy" idea!

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/da0 count=1

Used gpart to create a gpt partition table and added a freebsd-ufs type partion!

I mounted the iso (using mdconfig) and the pen, copied all the contents!

And what I see now is that once FreeBSD booloader shows, I have the the options

F1 ?

F5 Drive 1


If I press F1 then USB stick blinks and stops after 1/2  secs!

Does this means the problem is not grub at all but the PCBSD image it self?
