    Mine just arrived yesterday. I had such good luck last year just spatchcocking the turkey and hanging it by its armpits, it's going to take a lot for me to switch gears and use the hanger on the PBC.



      I'm not sure if I like how it 'flops' back and forth. I want to add a big ball of foil to stop it. I might end up spatchcocking, rebar diagonal and the bird in the center. Good thing I love turkey ... and the neighbors too.


        It's in, wahoo.. 315 degrees. First alarm is 2 hours.

        Another vote for spatchcock ... if you hang from 1 rebar, the two open hole are good for keeping the temp up in the 315-325 range. I have to keep the lid cracked. Click image for larger version

          Could you use a hook through the loop and hang the bird from one rebar, perhaps?


        The bird is done. 157 in the breast. 3.5 hours

          Ok, so complete review?? Pretty Please??!!?? How'd it cook hanging?? Man I'm hanging to know!

        Where do you get the turkey hanger from? Thanks Kyle


          pitbarrelcooker.com sells them directly from their site - it's a new product.


            Is the loop on the hanger large enough to put the rebar through? It looks close.

              Just checked mine, and yes the hole on the hanger will fit a rebar! This is how I'm going to attempt to do mine this weekend so that I can keep a set of holes rebar free. I think hanging it from a hook would place the bird too low in the pit.

              nice. looks like I'm going to order one now.

            I'm thinking you *could* use the hooks the pbc came with thru the loop and hang it off of one rebar... I'll find out for sure tomorrow when my hanger comes.


              I ordered 2 of these new hangers this week... they look like a great idea. I might try using them in my KBQ though... hahahaha!


                Hello Bergmef,
                How did the turkey come out? Looks good, how was skin?

                Nice job.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                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.

                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.
