Best value in a smoker I've ever seen. It works exactly as advertised. My briskets are particularly flavorful and juicy. Ribs turn out great. My next cook will be whole chickens for the first time on the PBC. I wish the air intake at the bottom was better designed. It can easily be knocked out of adjustment without even knowing it.

I liked my son-in-law’s cooker so much I bought my husband one for Fathers Day and later one for my son and his wife for Christmas.

The best and easiest outside cooker by far.

I still can't get over how easy this is. Food is so good! Hard to keep from peeking because you think it can't be this simple.
