I love the simplicity of the unit, only thing I would change is throwing in a standard cover.

The PBC came quickly. Minimal assembly required. I’ve used it twice and love it so far. As far as the vent goes, it’s a work in progress. For the most part you do set it in accordance with your elevation, but I have had to adjust it as the smoke goes on. Outside elements play a factor (wind, rain, etc...). The reason I bought this was the hanging of the meat and ease of use. Can’t wait to use it more.

I used the PBC three times the first week. Three whole chickens the first time. Despite my lack of experience with the charcoal, the chickens were done to perfection in 2 hours. Also did a three pound tri-tip steak that was done to a perfect medium rare in about 50 minutes. I love my PBC!

I have purchased 2 Pit Barrel Cookers and have had wonderful success with smoking meat. Be it chicken, pork or beef...this cooker is truly amazing!
