If you want to replicate the PBC then hang meat in your WSM or try and build your own. All ideas that come from this forum generate new ideas and extended experimentation and that is an excellent byproduct of quality discussion. I truly believe if people here had the time, money and resources to the proper tools they would copy the Weber OTG..........Yes they would. But they find it a lot easier to just buy one and move onward to cooking. One day another new style of cooker will come out and it will get the same treatment, quite frankly I can't wait to see the new ideas...........
$269 is a good price considering the guy is running a BUSINESS and not a Charity. The guy has expenses obviously. So next time you go to buy something ask the guy to give a product at cost.
