I went ahead and ordered one to add some additional smoking capacity to my back deck, and the $104 off coupon code sealed the deal. The cooker arrived a few days ago (4 days after ordering), and it is a quality product. Well made, well packaged, and easy to set up.
For my fist cook I prepared Tri Tip. It was very good. Not the best I've ever made, but very tasty.
Last night I cooked two chicken halves and it was the best chicken I've ever made. Very tender, juicy and flavorful.
This weekend will be ribs (with pron).
I realize that this cooker isn't for everyone, but it definitely fills a niche in my backyard.
It's very simple to use and so far my results have been great. For me it will be my go-to chicken cooker, and for that alone it was worth the investment.
That's exactly what I explain to people when they come over to our house and ask why I have SO many different grills, smokers, griddles, plow discs, etc! Each one has it's own purpose.................at least to me any way!
I can see the PBC filling a niche!
