Tips & Tricks

  • Protect your  PBC  from the elements with a custom  Pit Barrel® cover,  available in the SHOP.
  • It’s easy to remove the ashes from the  PBC  before or after each cook using one four methods:
    1. Simply lift and dump the ashes into a heat-resistant container.
    2. Scoop the ashes out with a dustpan.
    3. Line the bottom of the  PBC  with a sheet of tinfoil prior to setting the coal basket into place. Lift and remove the ashes after they’ve cooled.
    4. Use our Attachable  Ash Pan  to catch the ashes for the easiest removal.
    IMPORTANT: WAIT UNTIL THE ASHES HAVE COMPLETELY COOLED BEFORE REMOVING AND PROPERLY DISPOSING OF THEM.
  • After continued use, you may notice a buildup on the inside of the barrel. It’s not peeling paint, but is called a “Seasoned Drum” and is normal and not harmful.
  • While the  PBC  is hot, use a damp rag to wipe it down and easily remove and dirt and smudges.
