Analyze, Strategize, and Fertilize all you want. These things are awesome.
I just bought 5 PBC's. 2 weeks ago. One is set up in my pit, and used for 4 days straight. The others were delivered to doorsteps within 4-5 days of the order.
Right out of the box, this thing made 2 big chickens in 2 hours, 20 minutes, no mess, no fuss.. its a cooking machine.. period. Lit the basket with a texas torch, waited 20 mins, hooked the birds, plus 2 steaks, 6 wings(3 on each hook) and close the lid.
Steaks done in about 15 minutes.. they were ok.. prefer grilling.
wings done in about an hour.. gone in 60 seconds.. awesome
but the chickens, HOLY CRAP!... the wife accused me of injecting them with butter. They were marinaded in lemon and garlic, and coated with PBC all purpose.. thats it. But unbelievably juicy and fall off the bone tender. The texture and flavor was reminiscent of Kenny Rogers Roasters which was a really popular chain around here of fire roasted chickens.
This cooker will likely replace the BGE as my go to for chicken.. Will be doing a few more things this weekend for superbowl and put it thru more tests..
IMO, this cooker is alot of bang for the buck and worth every penny. So, PBC, UDS, BGE, PIA, who cares..this is another tool in the tool bin and its definitely got the potential to be one on the favorites. More so than my wsm.
Oh, and BTW... did I mention..... they came custom branded for
BBQ Brethren subscribers.
Information and pricing will be available next week in subscribers forum.
