Pit Barrel Cooker Co.
 
I am interested in upgrading my Brinkmann el cheapo smoker to this:

Products | Pit Barrel Cooker


Any thoughts?

What is the gauge of the metal?, personally I would have to see/feel it in person.
That sucker could rust out faster then your Brinkmann

I believe it's 18 gauge.

Well you can believe in one hand and shit in the other and see which one gets filled first......my $0.02

I have seen this as thin as 26 gauge.....scary shit

Not sure Vermin999 may have had some experience with the PBC, you might wait an see if he post a response. Several here have just built their own UDS very similar.

I know that there is some satisfaction derived from DYI, however with my work schedule time is the one thing I don't have. I will await a response before making a decision.

I haven't tried one but have heard nothing but great things about these cookers. My only experience is using a UDS and they are awesome cookers too. Just to throw a wrench in your plan a 18" WSM can be had for the same price and they are awesome cookers too!!! Good luck and let us know what you get and we like pics!

You can build a basic UDS for under $100. That there my friend is throwing your money away. Really when you get down to it, a UDS only takes a few hours to build. What you get out of the whole deal is experience. I built one 3 years ago and have not looked back.
