    PentaPBC. Five arranged in a circle whereby you stand in the middle to access. Two units swing out to allow inner circle access.

      XL PBC! XL PBC! XL PBC!

      Somehow this just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

        I thought the dimensions of the PBC were supposed to be optimal? From the review:

        Pit Barrel President, Noah Glanville explains: "We found that a 30 gallon drum provides a cooking environment that produces the better product every time. I can't explain the scientific reason for this. I can tell you we have gone through 29 different prototypes with different size drums and vent adjustments every way you can imagine."

        Once again we ran this by Dr. Blonder, asking if there is any reason the smaller drum would be superior. "Absolutely makes sense." he replied, "The reason the Pit Barrel works is simple, heat rises. So you have a hot fire at the bottom, and hot air that rises to the top; which basically evens out the temperature profile to more or less constant top to bottom. Hang the meat vertically so the hot air is not blocked, and it's the perfect oven - unless there are convection cells that mess up this even profile. Imagine a really wide cooker. Hot air would rise, bump into the cooler lid, cool off and sink, forming a rotating convection cell that lowers air temp at the lid and creates unpredictable turbulence. But as you narrow the diameter of the cooker, it becomes harder and harder for air to make the turn and descend. Sounds like 30 gallons is the dividing line between stable and unstable flow."

          Is the XL the exact same design as the regular, just larger in diameter?

          They had to put that because they didn't offer the larger barrel!

          Yeah I noticed this too. A similar comment on here when they had him on the happy hour last year.

        I've never felt I didn't have enough room in mine to do whatever I wanted. With so many 55 gallon ugly drums around there's obviously a market for a larger cooker.

          I think they wanted to capitalize on the larger barrel market and is why they are coming out with one. I'm sure they have also had a lot of requests for a bigger model. I don't see myself getting this XL version. If I was going bigger, I would probably go with a Hunsaker barrel.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
