Pit Barrel Cooker
Yesterday was three hanging racks of baby backs and then inserted grate and grilled pork chops for spicy BBQ with kimchi cole slaw. Today beer can chicken. I love my current line up, but a successful cook every time occurs with the Pit Barrel Cooker.

I sold two WSM's and my Akorn when I bought the PBC.
They were just sitting under their covers. Barrel cooking is here to stay.

It's a good cooking process for sure...i have conversions for the UDS when i want to hang meat or go on the grate for others.

Congratulations on your recent PBC. When you find something that works well, you really do enjoy using it.

When I bought my Humphrey's I put up 4 smokers for adoption to friends and family. I kept one propane smoker to use as a holding oven. No need to hang on to the others when something works so well.

Brings a smile
Barrels are fun.

I could go for bird...looks great!

Nice can...I may have to consider a PBC once the UDS bites the dust.

Dos pollos
One will be for chicken sausage gumbo and one for just eating. Whether you build your own UDS, buy a UDS or buy a Pit Barrel Cooker I think barrel cooking is a neat part of the BBQ experience.

"A chicken in every barrel".

I think somebody said that a long time ago

Everything you can do on a PBC, can be done, and done better on a WSM. Do you disagree?

Pit Barrel Cooker versus Others
Honestly Vision there are threads miles long debating the PBC versus Other cookers. This isn't one of them.

I know what works for me. Enjoy.

Excellent cook. The Pbc is a work horse. Cooks some lamb ribs and sausage yesterday and the meal was delicious and moist. Half basket of coals ran for 8 hours at 290

And that's a wrap
Crispy skin, juicy bird. Amen

Very nice.

I love barrel cooking too.

How big are the grates on the pbc? 22?

Looks great

Is that a lower grate wrapped in foil or something else?

16Adams 10-13-2013 10:22 PM

Grate area is 240 sq". It comes with 8 hooks for hanging but at times I foil my pizza stone and place a can of beer inside the birds and use the grate level. The pizza stone is 18". I've never actually measured the grate. A 240 sq" circle would have a radius approaching 8.8+ so D=2r so approx 18" grate.

Nope!!! Pbc is in a league of it's own.
