I recommend the PBC because it is a fantastic cooker, but you must realize that it is a cooker designed to cook at a single temp range of about 270 to 310. It is designed to not be adjusted and messed with and is a cooker designed for volume. As an owner of one, it is slightly lacking in the versatility department in that you can't get higher temps to cook steaks or pizza
With that said though, it is still great for doing all sorts of Q. Its relies more on a fast "low and slow" cook style, which to some people could be a hindrance.
With all that said, I do use mine a lot. It is great for doing ribs or chicken when I don't really have the time to sit and manage a 6+ hour cook. If and when I have the time to do that, I pull out the UDS and set her at 225 to roll all day.
Hope that helps.
