        Congrats, you won’t be disappointed. Make spare ribs first to validate your wife’s urging.

            Great cooker, you’ll really enjoy the product. Their video recipes are a great start, if you need help getting acclimated to barrel cooking.

                      You cannot go wrong. But you can upgrade. For the simple, just get it rolling and let it do it's thing. One thing I did after several years of using my PBC when temps became unruly was to add a gasket to the lid: Lavalock 7/8" x 15' which is way more than you'll ever need, so feel free to share ;-) and you can find it on Amazon, it's not expensive and was suggested by others on this forum . It sealed the leaks that metals that inevitably do happen because of simple physics. That's just the way metal works and it's not the fault of manufacturing, PBC is a high quality good. If I were to buy another brand new PBC today I would fit this gasket on the lid before first use. Otherwise you'll have to clean the groove on the lid, which for me, after several years of use, was not a small task, but not terribly difficult.

                          Congratulations! I've had mine for quite a few years and it's still running fine. One thing I can tell you - try to use low-ash charcoal. The charcoal basket sits pretty close to the bottom of the barrel and the ash build-up snuffs out the fire occasionally. I can't use Kingsford for that reason and use B and B in the PBC. I have never tried lump in it. Cooks great though.
