    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.

              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.

              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.
