Default Well, I jumped on the bandwagon.

Needed something to do small cooks, haul places easily, and to cook on when I don't have time to shovel coals all day but still crave that pit flavor of fat dropping on coals. So--I jumped on the bandwagon and ordered a PBC Junior. Hope the flavor is similar to my cinder block pit.

Great choice! I picked one recently and it's as good if not better than the PBC. Solid cooker for it's size.

Six rack of baby back ribs in less than 4 hours for NYE.





Tiny enough to fit in a prius



I did quite a few cooks on it already

4 chicken halves, STL rack and a fatty

A new 14"-er Smitty. It's a badarse cooker for it's size. IMO the smaller circumference and only 1" 1/2 shorter in height than the original PBC provides for a better draft. Not that PBC is any worse but to me the J drafts better. Kinda like haveing a tall, wide stack on an offset. It pulls better.

I think I want one as well. The size is just too perfect. Would be so easy to take places. I'm a little freaked out about not being able to control temps on these PBCs though. But I recognize that plenty of people swear by them and just let them do what they're gonna do.
