Placing Your Pit barrel

Your Pit Barrel® should not be placed directly on any flammable surface such as a wood deck or dry grass.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU EVER POUR LIGHTER FLUID ONTO HOT COALS IN THE BARREL.

Respecting the Heat

IMPORTANT: If you are using your Pit Barrel® on a deck, grass, or any other potentially flammable surface we highly recommend placing paver stones or bricks to completely cover the area under the cooker.

Ready Out-Of-The-Box

There is no need to season your PBC or PBJ; it is a brand new drum with a porcelain enamel finish and is ready to cook right out of the box. As always, please be careful and enjoy!

Setting Up Your Pit Barrel®

Step 1.

Set up your Pit Barrel® in an open, outdoor area.

Step 2.

Remove the Three-point Barrel Stand from inside the barrel and place the cooker on top with the ring facing up.

Step 3.

Remove charcoal basket from bottom of barrel and place on the ground.

Step 4.

Lighting Your Pit Barrel®

Fill your charcoal basket level, remove 1/4 of the briquets (this is approximately 40 coals for the PBC and 20 coals for the PBJ) and place in the chimney, light the coals with the lid off and let burn for 12 minutes for elevations between sea level and 2000 ft (All other elevations will let your coals burn for 20 minutes). Dump the lit coals into the charcoal basket and start cooking immediately.
