    I love brisket on the PBC. A big hit at my house!

    Honestly, I have never pressure-washed the back patio as sixteen years ago I threw fertilizer with a high iron content everywhere and there are some serious rust stains that gunk is covering up.

    fzxdoc, yes when I asked you about the fit to the drum, Michael had not yet posted his photos. Between his photos and your comments, it looks like a winner to me. My PBC lives under a breathable, water proof cover when not in use near my back porch, on the edge of my concrete drive way so rolling around would not be a problem. I don't move it often as I cook in the same location that it lives in while stored but I think the wheels would be nice.

    Michael, thanks to much for the photos. Helps a lot. May have to get me one of these.

    “not worried about it staining your patio?” Yeah, it’d be a shame to stain that black mold. 😂

    Welcome from Virginia. Do not have a PBC, but there is a number of folks here who can help.

    Alabama Smoke , as Michael_in_TX described and showed in his photos, it's a good fit--not tight, but the barrel is able to easily hold its position as you move it around. It moves as a single unit around my deck. No brace or straps needed.

    If you're using a temperature controller, there's just enough clearance above the rim of the dolly for the PBC adapter and the Pit Viper fan nozzle. Works just fine.

    I happen to have some photos. It is not snug at all, but the weight of the barrel keeps it in place. You won't feel like it is going to be falling/coming out unless you are trying to move it really fast.

    Mine moves around only 4-6' at a time, so I'm not trying to move it across a long distance. Mine only moves across concrete; moving across grass probably would not work well. I like the dolly. The only quibble I have is that the bolts/nuts used to attach the castors to the frame aren't fully stainless and some of mine have developed a bit of rust. Nothing on the wheel itself, so I am not worried about it staining my patio.

    Me too. That dolly is the best add-on to the PBC ever. Got mine on Amazon.

    I put a little drum dolly under my PBC too. Works great.

    Glad to "meet" you online. This is the best place I know of if you are serious about upping your BBQ game.

    I really like my PBC. It is a fun, consistent, and low-stress cooker that turns out great food. It's not entirely set-it-and-forget it; every once in awhile my temps inexplicably get away from me for some reason.....but I certainly have enjoyed it.

    I added a dolly to it so that it can be moved around the patio.

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.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.

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.

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.
