ABOUT THE PBC seal_288

While barrel cooking is nothing new, it has never before been brought to the mass market in a form that is both affordable and simple to use, producing perfectly cooked meals every time. We believe that everyone that enjoys outdoor cooking will want a Pit Barrel® Cooker because everyone who tries one is simply amazed by the flavor it produces.

about-the-pbc-hooknhangThe PBC is famous for its ability to get consistently delicious results, and it’s not by accident. Hanging the meat in the center of the heat allows for even cooking and penetration of a “smoke fog” created by juices dripping directly on the coals. Experts, judges, and food lovers of all ages agree– the PBC simply cooks some of the best food you’ve ever tasted.about-the-pbc-hooknhang


about-the-pbc-grillgrateNot all meats are created equal– and not all foods are meats! Every PBC comes with a steel grill grate, not just so it can double as a traditional grill, but to take advantage of the PBC’s added depth and temperature control. Want to sear a steak? Cook without the lid to turn up the heat. Or leave it on and let the smoke add another layer of depth to burgers, fish, pizza– even cookies!about-the-pbc-grillgrate


about-the-pbc-durabilityThe Pit Barrel Cooker itself is not only built to withstand the heat conditions of charcoal cooking, but its porcelain enamel coating makes it extremely weather-resistant. Each drum and lid are treated with a superior-grade porcelain enamel finish that gives the PBC not only great looks, but also the ability to last for years.about-the-pbc-durability


about-the-pbc-portabilityIf you can’t take it with you… it’s not a Pit Barrel! We know smoked meat and BBQ connoisseurs have mobile interests, luckily the PBC is light and compact enough to fit in the back of most vans, trucks and SUVs for easy transport to the campsite or football game.about-the-pbc-portability
