    Anteater23 I never saw a picture showing a chip. Was it in that one photo you posted? Did you ever get this resolved?

      Hi, I contacted the people I bought it from (a UK company) who said it shouldn’t be a problem and putting some oil over it would make it fine. I understand it’s not the most serious problem but I wish it were perfect.

      The photo shows the chips. They are either side of the ‘leg’ that clips into the ash pan attachment.

    Contact them, they will take care of you. My PBJ came out of the box chipped they sent me another one the next day no cost to me and told me to keep it, so I ended up with two.

      Thanks for your message. I’m from the UK and didn’t buy it from the Pit Barrel company directly but from a UK retailer. They apologised but said it shouldn’t be a problem if I put oil over the chips.

    I contacted the guys at PBC today and they just said they didn’t think it’d affect the function or longevity of the coal basket and that degradation of the coating is normal and no cause for concern. Considering I haven’t used it, that’s bit disappointing.

      Hope so. Was just concerned about it rusting as a result. Might damage it.

      Chip or no chip it should develop rust. It's about to experience copious amounts of heat and moisture.

      Okay. Is rust a problem for coal basket?

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.

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!

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

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.

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’.
