Thanks for posting. The last time I talked to Noah about the PGJ, he said they were scrapping the idea as the cost to produce would not allow them to sell it much cheaper than the regular model. I guess moving their production overseas may have help address that issue.

I nominate Sako to be the first one to purchase the PBJ, now that he no longer owns a PBC and the Hunsaker is bit too big to take on camping trips, picnics and other outings.

There are enough commercial 55 gal drum smokers out there as competition that I don't see it. Pit Barrel seems to have the dominant commercial position in the 30 gal drum smoker market, and I'm not aware of any smaller commercial drum smokers out there. Although the WSM and it's clones would be competition.

if they could hit the market at $399 or $499 they would probably put a hurting on the other 55 gal drum manufactures

Yup. The Hunsaker and Gateway are $600+

I'll take that bet. Shipping something that large across the pond and then to a customer's door is just too cost-prohibitive.

The PBJ is essentially the same height, presumably the same general build quality (steel gauge, etc.), and their FAQ states that the burn time is the same. Given all of that, the only real difference is less capacity and a TINY bit of extra portability. The standard PBC is eminently portable in most rigs, so I wish them the best, but I don't see any compelling differentiation for $70 less.

$750 + to start

And like Daddio said it's not cost effecient shipping a 55 Gal drum to your door speaking with Mark Hunsaker when I ordered my Hunsaker. Especially when your eating the cost.

It will be interesting to see how the PBJ sells. As John said, you save $70 for about a 25% reduction in capacity (8 racks of ribs down to 6) which will make it slightly easier to transport because of the diameter reduction? I was able to transport my PBC with no issues in my wife’s old Tahoe before I got my pickup so maybe the PBJ will fit in most sedans’ backseats or trunks? Yeah, I’m not seeing the advantage here to justify buying a PBJ... though don’t let me dissuade anyone here from doing so! I’d definitely like to see some reviews and how it compares with the original, like: are cook times and running temperatures about the same? What about charcoal, as in I’d expect the PBJ to use at least slightly less due to its smaller size?
I also agree that the 55 gallon drum is out due to shipping and plenty of other competitors out there. I love my Gateway UDS clone not only for the increased capacity but the ability to easily adjust temperatures by sliding the vents (which is not what the PBC does as it’s designed to be a “hook it, hang it and let it go until the meat is done” cooker). A PBC is a great entry point and easy way to get into drum cooking at a price point at less than half the cost of a commercially produced 55 gallon drum smoker. A bigger PBC (PBC Grande?) would not have that selling point as I bet they’d have to sell them close to what a Gateway or Hunsaker sells for to make any Noah any money. Plus as Dr. Blonder states in the review of the PBC on Amazing Ribs, a bigger drum than the 30 gallon would likely result in more turbulent, unsteady air flow so you HAVE to have adjustable vents (I do have fiddle with my Gateway clone occasionally until I get what I want dialed in), which, again, is contrary to the selling point of a PBC.
