    Pit Barrel Price

    Looks like the price of the Pit Barrel has gone up slightly. It's now $299. I ordered mine at $289, and I heard that at one point it was $269. Anyone that is on the fence should get one before it goes up again.

    Its a good deal at $289 (including S&H).

    I could see Noah charging up to $350 - if he installed a good Tel-Tru thermometer on it.

    Adding a $30 Tel-Tru with a 2" probe is the only mod I have made on my PBC.

    Jerod's idea of adding the casters is one I am pretty sure I am going to pursue for sure.

    $289 is a fair price; $269 would have been a steal!!


      Thanks for pointing this out. I'll update our review.

      I just want a lid that doesn't hold a half gallon of water. Good powder coating would help too.


        I knew when I saw the article in Forbes about Noah and the PBC a price increase wasn't far behind. I got in at $289 but all my friends have paid $1200+ for their smokers, so I consider myself well ahead of the game. $299 is a fair price and I wouldn't be surprised to see it go higher. My $.02.


          I think I paid $299 for mine, but this was a very early offering before the price dropped (and before AR had reviewed the PBC). Anything under $300 makes it competitive with the WSM. I think he could go up to the market rate for a 22.5" WSM (even though the barrel is smaller the hooks give you about the same capacity as the larger smokey mountain).


            I paid $315 for mine only because I picked it up from a retailer. PBC folks had a 3 weeks backlog and my nerves wouldn't permit me to wait that long.


              I hope they don't keep raising the price. Don't get me wrong, I love my PBC. I don't know that I would pay $300.00 for it. At that price or north there of, I would rather just make it myself.
