If you like the words," honey this is the best yet" then get a PBC. I cook on a lot of different cookers, several times per week. My intentions were to buy USA Made and support an Armed Forces Veteran owned company. What I got was a "go-to"
Everyone has their own folkways, mores, ticks and habits when it comes to cooking. Looking for a recommendation? Buy it.
Looking for a discussion between the merits of The Pit Barrel Cooker and a home made Ugly Drum Smoker? I can't help you as I've never owned or cooked on a UDS- but the brethren here who do-rave about their results.
It's just an observation, but most who criticize the PBC do not have it listed in their signature as an owner, or beers by their avatar. Maybe buy a beer and drink a few would calm their angst. There are several cookers I'm going to try before my wife takes me to be turned to ashes.

By the way, did she mention my name-just in passing?
