Frequently Asked Questions

The best way to describe the Pit Barrel® Concept is the perfect combination between a grill and a smoker – truly in its own category given the meat hanging method in a pit environment.

The total shipping weight in the box is 64 lbs for the PBC, and 48 lbs for the PBJ.

Please refer to our video Lighting Your Pit Barrel®. We recommend using standard charcoal briquets or lump. Important: DO NOT use auto-starting charcoal. Though we include a lighter fluid method in our lighting video, our preferred method is chimney. We offer a custom chimney starter that is specifically designed to maneuver and function with the PBC and PBJ.

We don’t pull punches – no gimmicks, no games – our products ship FREE of charge anywhere in the continental U.S. via FedEx® Ground or USPS® Priority, excluding Alaska and Hawaii. Please select the free shipping option at checkout. Expedited and international shipping options are available at checkout for an additional charge.
