Also just to clarify. You CAN "grill" on the pit barrel. I have done a good amount of chicken thighs on the grate of mine and they turn out great. They take about 45 minutes to an hour to cook but turn out tender and juicy
Its basically a slow cooking grill which gives you control of not overcooking the meat.
