This astounding barbecue is, quite simply, one of the world’s most ingenious, versatile and innovative cooking devices.

And here is your chance to discover its secrets - from Melbourne pit master Bob Hart who has been a devotee ever since it launched in the US some four or five years ago. 

In the first year of its existence, Hart travelled to Louisville, Kentucky, to stay with its inventor, Noah Glanville with whom he explored, first hand, its possibilities; these two men then worked together in developing and adapting PBC recipes.

The Pit Barrel Cooker, better known as the PBC, is a modestly-priced barbecue which will, quickly and easily, deliver barbecued dishes you may have thought were beyond you. And beyond, for that matter, most barbecues.

Ignite a modest amount of charcoal in the bottom of one of these, put on the lid and the PBC will do the rest. It will roast meat, seafood and vegetables – even fruit – at a steady 135C, imparting seductive wood smoke flavours as it does so.

And if there is something you need to cook with greater urgency, the PBC offers high-heat cooking: simply crack the lid to increase the air flow, and it will show itself to be a powerful convection oven - capable of cooking at temperatures well in excess of 200-250C.

There are few cooks in Australia - or in the US for that matter – who can match Hart’s mastery of the PBC, or the astounding array of dishes he can deliver on it.

Hart, in short, has accumulated knowledge that has made him a master of this remarkable barbecue – knowledge that he is now prepared, through some highly informative and entertaining classes, prepared to share.
