Pit Barrel Cooker

Postby TexasPitKing79 » Tue Oct 14, 2014 7:47 am

I was just wondering if anyone out there has got a Pit Barrel Cooker and what they thought about it? It's the one that you cook the meat hanging vertically. Thinking about gettin one.

I got one a couple months back and cooked on it 8 times and from the first cook I was a pro. :lol: Never had a bad cook as long as you follow the directions on the website. I use other rubs Namely Hog Waller from Sucklebusters.

Best $300 I ever spent.

bobcat - do you have any issues fitting a full packer in it? I know most people build UDS out of 55 gallon but I think these are 30. 30 gallon might be a good camping size for me.

Full racks of ribs are no problem. I don't see it being a problem but I haven't cooked one in mine yet.

I've cooked 3 of them now. You have to let the top lap over a little. I put 3 hooks in it all connected. Once the meat draws up I put it on the top hook. Man they turn out awesome. Not bragging but all my friends think I am a BBQ God and think I should open a restaurant. :lol: :chef: :mrgreen:
