    I'm the Victim!

    Yes, I fell victim to a case of extreme MCS...my PK360 will be arriving today or tomorrow to replace my weber kettle. The wife...will be in for a surprise when it arrives.

    I felt I needed to confess my sins here!

      Welllll...I'm not getting rid of the kettle. It'll be occupying a spot on the shop for whenever I need it.

    You came to the wrong place to confess sins, I think you made a great decision. You'll love the 360

      Confessing an MCS purchase here is like confessing drinkin' too much to an alcoholic priest...

        The only difference is the priest would likely tell you to stop drinking too much and give you a few Our Fathers...here the drinking is encouraged haha

      You have been absolved.
      Good luck...
      or maybe
      MCS is a victimless crime.

          I’m still in shock but I’ll get over it now that we have that clarified.

            That sounds awfully close to your recent Creekstone Farms order!

            Definitely keeping the kettle!

          My 360 is probably my favorite cooker. I got it in addition to my kettle only because I wanted to have the extra cooking space if needed but it’s a fantastic rig. You made a great choice!

            That kind of surprise would cause SWMBO to make sure I was a victim...

                PK360 is not very portable. Weber kettle easier to move around. But a few of my reasons:
                1) Durability - Marine grade aluminum, I will be passing it down to my children. I'm on my 3rd weber due to corrosion.
                2) It seals very well. Weber leaks around the edges.
                3) Built in SnS.
                4) Great vent controls.
                5) Seems to me the sweet spot is 350 d. Easy to achieve and easy to bring back up to temp.
                6) Temp gauge is at grate level, not near the top of the lid.

                I like the dual zone cooking abilities for one. Also a bit more aesthetically pleasing to the eye and it's going to sit up on my deck visible from the entryway when you walk into the house. It's mostly going to by my winter/rain cooker.

              Congrats on the PK360. It's a great grilling piece of equip and small smoker. For grilling and roasting I probably use my PK360 80% and my weber w/ vortex 20%. Love my PK.

                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.

                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.
