Default pit barrel smoker

Is there a difference between hanging meat on hooks or putting on grate or put in foil pan?

That's big debate surrounding the Pit Barrel Cooker.. 1000 different people will give 1001 different answers.

Do a search in the search bar below for Pit Barrel Cooker and you can find all the old debate threads when the PBC first blew up a few months ago.

Yes,no,sort of,kind of,maybe,always,never,at times,sometimes etc etc. Believe it or not all of these are the correct answer. Honest, they are.

I love my PBC. I've used one hook, two hooks hanging up down and sideways. I've also used the grate. Everything has been wonderful. Not a bad cook yet.

Maybe not the best answer, but an honest one.

What search bar...or do I have to reconfig my screen?

Or does one have to subscribe to use search? If so, wastes a lot of people's time responding to repeats, seems to me.

Scroll to the bottom of the page. The bar says "Google custom search". No subscription needed.

I've hung ribs over the coals in my WSM and they were different from ribs smoked on a rack (above the water pan.) Whether they are better or not is a matter of personal preference. They were good.

Some meats need more support when cooking, thinking ribs here. I would hate to have my ribs rip in half and fall to a fire doom. Also grates allow you to do smaller things, ABT's, Wings, smoked mac and cheese.

I never liked the hooks idea. though I guess you might be able to fit more?

So a PBC has no grate? That's silly. They need to make a PBC with BOTH a grate AND Hooks then.

I can't imagine anyone's ribs falling into the fire.... I mean, really! Somebody should buy on of these things and do some speramintin... Maybe chicken frist, then ribs... even cook one rack to see how long before it falls into the fire.

Can a PBC do a brisket? HUNG?
