Default Pit Barrel Cook 1st ever run with PRON

I scored a PBC last night.

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh....php?p=2577483

Fired up the PBC for the first time tonight. This thing is lovely

I had some leftover flap steak and pork shoulder from Saturday so I cut them into cubes. I also had these skewers laying around and not being used.





Sooooo I thought kabobs on the PBC. Put the potatoes on the ends to keep the meat from possibly falling plus who doesnt like grilled taters.




Started the fire and hung the meat





On it went for 25 minutes exactly



Dinner served



Even the potato was done and being so close to the fire didn't burn



Even some left over charcoal after I closed the bottom vent to test air tightness. Just for test purposes.





I'm impressed. Hope y'all enjoyed. I know I did. Tender beef and tender pork shoulder in 25 farkin mins. Exactly what I was hoping for.

I love my PBC too! Good looking grub there. I'd hit a plate! You gave us all a great idea with those skewers!

Thanks Bob,

I'm amazed how even it cooked from bottom to top.

Great idea with the skewers. Might be my attempt with some veggies and meat.

What do you mean close bottom vent?

I meant that I loosened the screw and closed the bottom air intake vent. Def try the veggies and meat, basically shish kabob. I know itll come out awesome on the PBC after I did my test plus a potato at the end will prevent meat and softer veggies from falling off. You can also skewer a large piece of meat and grill it.

Pit Barrel Cooker- we that have them understand. Great job with the skewers. I've experimented with various things but never the factory altitude bottom vent setting. I just keep on cooking.

I've always heard there's no stupid questions so here's a "noob" question ..... What's the difference in a PBC vs UDS ?

Default Us vs Them

Already built-UDS you build
Ready to cook-UDS burn scrape sandblast
PBC 30 gallon-UDS 55 gallon
New food safe drum-UDS roll dice on contents
Horse shoe handles-UDS garage door handles
Horse shoe ring base-UDS fire bricks or bare ground
24/7 customer support/UDS ?????
$$support Veteran American Co/UDS ???

I could go on. But you get the idea. I like the 30 gallon drum. My wife can easily move it around. Guys/Gals love their UDS. Guys/Gals love their PBC's.
I wouldn't call it an Apples Oranges comparison. More of a similarly different comparison. As long as there is fire-meat and beer it's going to be a great day on the patio.

LOL!! Let's not turn this thread into one of these threads. The merits and comparison between both have been discussed in many other threads. Like this one:
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...&highlight=PBC

If you search for PBC, you will find other ones. The one above is the most developed one in terms of posts.

Back to the topic at hand.

Good looking cook. How do you like those skewers? I saw some similar ones (flat) and thought about getting them, just hadn't heard anyone talk about them.

Just FYI: The PBC got a nice write-up in this month's National BBQ News.
