Anyone can do what i did to hang meat..I took a cooking grate ( I got a cheapie from Meijer) and cut out the bars except for the ones by the handle and hung rebar from handle side to handle side....the 22.5 I can do 3 rebars exactly like Chicken in a Barrel in Hawaii does. Point being these barrel cookers can be made to do everything but it's just some (as an example) like the BP can grill better. ( or like Bob's setup) Just what i like about the BP is because it's a bigger drum the outer is bigger for indirect cookng.
I really like the size of the PBC for my needs. If I wanted a 55 gallon size I would probably just go with Big Poppa like you did. Mainly because of the intake slides and because I don't wanna make everything.
That's a big reason for my PBC purchase, it works and I didn't have to "work" to get it. And again, I like the size. I was looking at possibly getting an 18.5 wsm before I got the PBC. I just like that size. Who knows about the future!
