"Noah, I thought you might be interested in knowing that I won the chicken category at Smokin' on Big Creek in Pleasant Hill, MO using a PBC. We struggled with chicken until I switched to your cooker. Thanks!

"Just wanted to let y'all know that I have really enjoyed my cooker.I've done briskets, ribs, pork shoulders, and wings. Straight up the best I've ever done. The whole chicken is the best I've ever had/cooked. Wish y'all all the best. I will continue to spread the word on y'all's cookers!

"I first read about the Pit Barrel Cooker on the Patio Dadio blog. It looked interesting, but I wasn’t sure I needed another “grill”. Then Smokeasaurus (on the Let’s Talk Barbecue Forum) started talking about it. He talked about the ease of use and great flavor. Well, I’ve always loved food cooked over charcoal, but found myself using propane for convenience. The PBC sounded like the best of both worlds – great charcoal fire flavor with a set it and walk away ease. My first cook was a chicken – prepared just like Noah describes in the video, and it was delicious. Next was a pork shoulder – made some pulled pork that my daughter’s boyfriend keeps asking for. Since then I’ve done ribs, fish, prime rib, and more. Everything has been good – but I find myself making chickens and pulled pork over and over – they are that good! I can sauce each chicken half differently or leave ‘em naked and please everyone – and it is so easy. I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that Noah and Amber are wonderful to work with – they answer every question you have and make sure you are totally happy with your purchase – they really do!"

"This cooker has to be the best thing to happen to BBQ in a long time, the ease of preparing the cooker to the ease of hanging a brisket can't get any better. Amber and Noah are true to their statement of being there for you with any questions you may have. My first cook was a split chicken which took just 2 hours to finish and my second cook was a 7lb brisket flat which took just 3.5 hrs to finish, both were juicy and I used the all purpose for the chicken and the beef and game seasoning for the brisket. ORDER THIS COOKER!!!!!!"
"Hello! Just wanted to tell you how much we love our PBC! I had read about the PBC on Patio Daddio BBQ a couple of months ago and was very intrigued. I decided to purchased a PBC for my husband for Christmas. This has been the best gift! He loves it. My teenage boys love it! We are amazed at how easy it has been to use. So far, we have prepared chicken, ribs, and tri-tip. Wow! Everything has been absolutely delicious, tender, and juicy. Next weekend we are going to try a whole turkey. Thank you for posting the very helpful videos. I think it is important that you know, one of the selling points, for me, was that it is completely American made. And, quite honestly, to be able to support a veteran owned business is an honor. We wish you well and hope that word spreads about the PBC."
"If you are looking for a cooker that you have to constantly tweak the vents and add coals to, well this cooker is not for you. If you are looking for a charcoal cooker that is set it and forget it then this is the cooker for you! This is a great product that is affordable and holds more grub in a small space than some giant 400 lb. smoker. I have had a drum smoker before that was a low and slow style smoker. The PBC is a power cooker! Your food is finished quickly and cooked perfectly. I also like the fact that it is 100% Made in the USA and you can also call and talk to the owner of the company.. how nice is that!! Speaking of nice they are here for you before the sale and are even more helpful after the sale. They truly want you to enjoy your purchase and have success with it. If you are on the fence about pulling the trigger on the Pit Barrel Cooker, hop on over and join us.. you will be glad you did!!"
"Hands down! My PBC is the best culinary product I have purchased in years! I was considering egg cookers and brand name smokers before I was introduced to a PBC by my neighbor. For the price, ease of use, and cooking experience this is the best product on the market. It also isn't an ugly lawn dwarf like other cookers. Great food makes me happy and in the three weeks since I bought my PBC I have cooked 8 whole chickens, 16 lbs of pork butt and an 8 lb brisket and everything has turned out fantastic! Oh, did I mention, I am a rookie in the art of slow cooking. If you are reading this, STOP, buy your PBC and get cooking. Noah and his team are great and available in real-time to get you started. Oh, I would also recommend a wireless thermometer as well"

"The other day, I had the opportunity to see your Pit Barrel Cooker at the Meat House in Portsmouth, NH. I was with a couple of buddies getting some "supplies" at the Meat House. They were using your product outside cooking a brisket and some pork shoulder. Ten minutes later I walked out with your cooker. Since then, I have cooked ribs, brisket, and pork shoulder. Your cooker does a much better job versus any other product I have seen or tried. Thanks for finally producing a product that gets the job done and is made in America!"
~ Dennis B., Portsmouth, NH
"We were so excited about our Pit Barrel Cooker that it took us a mere hour once we took it out of the box to fire it up (and that hour was spent driving to the store for charcoal and meat)! We made a whole chicken and some steaks in it that very first night and they both turned out AWESOME! We had never previously tasted the flavor that this cooker brought out. It was so easy to use as well. From initially taking it out of the box to setting it up, was mere minutes! We love it and it's all we use for slow cooking now! Thanks Pit Barrel Cooker...YOU ROCK!"
~ Jamie B., Elizabethtown, KY
"Wanna crank up your outdoor cooking experience to the next level? Here you go...I bought a Pit Barrel Cooker earlier this year and I love it. Ribs, chicken, etc. cook perfectly every time. Everytime. Ridicuously easy to use. Light coals, hang meat, cover lid. Then come back and chow down. I cook outdoors year around, this is my preferred way to do it. Pick one of these baby's up. Trust me, trust me."

"Had some pork shoulder made with your Pit Barrel Cooker, pure deliciousness!"
~ Stephanie S., CA
"The Pit Barrel Cooker is amazing because it is not a grill or a smoker... it is truly in a category of its own. The Pit Barrel's design produces quality, tender meat every time."
~ Jason V., Denver, CO
"With the help of Pit Barrel's recipes, I know that my meals will turn out perfectly. The Pit Barrel Cooker is really easy to use and will undoubtably be the talk of the party."
~ Megan V., Kalamazoo, MI
"Pit Barrel Cooker Co. just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying our Pit Barrel Cooker. Our grill is getting dusty and is quickly becoming obsolete. The best thing about the Pit Barrel Cooker is the fact that you can start the coals, put your meat on and walk away. No babysitting or constant attention is needed. The recommended cooking times are right on for everything we've cooked on the barrel. We're always entertaining and our guests are blown away by the 5 star quality meals that come off the cooker. The meat is juicy, evenly cooked and has that wonderful pit barbeque flavor. We've also become addicted to the Pit Barrel Cooker seasonings and the unique flavor they add to the meat. We'll keep spreading the word about the Pit Barrel Cooker!"
~ Russel & Stephanie M., Bennett, CO
"I bought your cooker a few weeks back and I want to tell you—It's terrific! I have cooked turkey, chicken halves, and the tri tip. Everything turned out perfect. The charcoal adds so much flavor!"
~ John T., Cheyenne, WY
"On Jauary 1, 2012 my taste buds changed forever. I was walking towards Mile High for the Broncos game. We came across some sample meats prepared in Pit Barrel Cookers. The best tri-tip ever. Told my wife about it and a couple weeks later, we took delivery of our Pit Barrel Cooker. That night we polished off a tri-tip and a chicken. It is so easy to use that I can even cook with it. This coming from a guy who was banned from the kitchen years ago. Racks of ribs, prime rib, poultry, tri-tip. Never better than when it is cooked in the Pit Barrel Cooker!"
~ Jim M., Arvada, CO
"WOW - Do we LOVE this Pit Barrel! It is soooooooooooo easy to use and it makes your food taste incredible. I'm a grandma and even I can use it. We've cooked just about everything in it - using the rubs that they sell. It's incredible. Whenever we use it, we eat so much we can barely move afterwards - ha! We're planning on using it all summer long (and fall, winter and spring) and keeping the grand kids well fed and happy. The only problem I'm anticipating is that there won't be any leftovers to send home with the kids. This is one terrific cooker (and I've been cooking for 40 years and have tried just about everything under the sun). Want to impress your family, friends, neighbors? This is the cooker you want to get!"
~ Teresa, Aurora, CO
"I love my Pit Barrel Cooker! It has made barbequing so easy for me. I have found that your times are accurate, and I just put the meat on and walk away. When it comes off, it is so flavorful and juicy! I am a hero with my friends! I have fed up to 40 people cooking one shift of tri-tips. It was delicious and easy. I do not even use my other barbeque anymore, and have become adventurous with what to try on my Pit Barrel, because it has been so consistently great. In California, we barbeque year-round, and this has made a huge change for me. Thank you so much!"
~ Monica M., Mission Viejo, CA
"A rep. from the Meat House in Mission Viejo brought the "Pit Barrel Cooker" to our annual football team picnic. Everyone marveled at the flavor and juicy consistency of the beef and chicken that was cooked on your device. It was beyond belief. I was so impressed I purchased one that day.We have been cooking with it ever since and it has NEVER failed to produce the best flavored and succulent meats and fish I have ever tasted. WOW what a product you have. Oh, I forgot to add that it does all that with no fuss and requires no standing over a hot grill. Just put the food in it, walk away, and come back at the time your instructions indicate and the stuff is perfectly done and ready to eat."
