i've cooked on a 55 gallon drums. did not like them. family didn't either. the flavor off the food from 55 drum was always terrible. my family hated it. they couldn't wait until i got rid of them. since i got the Pit Barrel Cooker my food comes out very flavorful. very easy to use. no adjusting anything. i can put more food in my PBC than i every could my old 55 drums. chicken, ribs, tri, butts and veges all come out fantastic. no turning or anything. take the food off when done. it is not new to hang your food in drums but the Pit Barrel Cooker sure it taste better. if you own a 55 gallon drum great. if you want your food to taste better get a PBC.
