WE KNEW WE HAD SOMETHING SPECIAL AND THAT IT WAS THE DIRECTION WE WERE MEANT TO GO.
While barrel cooking is nothing new, never before has a cooker been brought to the mass market in a form that is both affordable and extremely easy to use. The meat-hanging method in the design of the Pit Barrel® eliminates the guesswork and has established a new paradigm in outdoor cooking.
In 2003, Pit Barrel® founder Noah Glanville served as a Navy Corpsman attached to a Marine Corps unit in Iraq. Upon their return, he and his unit were welcomed home by a group of veterans who hosted a barbecue in their honor. “Older veterans greeted us with a barbecue. I remember the smell of the charcoal, hot dogs and hamburgers,” Glanville says. “It’s a good, familiar smell, and I knew that I was finally home.”
Subsequently, Noah would return to Iraq and Afghanistan as a private security contractor.
