Looking forward to Your report on the Grilling,I am anxious to see How it turns out !!There hasn't been much said on the grilling aspect of the Cooker.That is one reason I have yet to buy one !Maybe John could jump in and clue us in on the Grilling procedure !!

Grilling Procedure: Light coals, add supplied 17" grate, wait 20 minutes, grill (with the lid off).

i own a wsm 22 (and wsm mini in process) and i'm gonna pull the trigger on a PBC today.

it is a similar but different cooker (especially if you use it as directed by the manufacturer).

dont think you could really go wrong either way..... and that is why i shall own both!

I got my PBC in on Tuesday afternoon. I fired it up at the office today. I lit coals as instructed. I am cooking 4 chicken halves. The chicken has been on the pit for 1 hour 20 minutes. The pit temp right below the rebar in center of pit is 253. The internal chicken temp right now is 148. I would think the chicken will be done in about 15-20 more minutes. So far I couldn't be happier.

If I am spending my money, I would buy a WSM.

If I am looking to save money, I would build a UDS. Bigger version of a PBC.

The Weber Performer will beat a Pit Barrel Cooker for the after work cooks every day. Easier to start charcoal (w/ propane burner) and easier to clean out the ashes and a nice table to set my beers on.

I am not using lighter fluid to light my charcoal. I question any cooker which has instructions to use the nasty stuff.

My initial reaction to the PBS is that it is a small UDS that you could probably make yourself for fifty bucks or less, that retails for 329 bucks. I don't know how it is finished, but it doesn't look like porcelain enamel.

I got my first Weber kettle in 1995, and still have it and use it -- and it looks good, too. I expect to have my WSM until I'm in the ground, myself.

I'm sure you can cook good Q on either one.
