This Meadow Creek PR42 charcoal cooker can roast whole hogs, grill burgers and smoke large meats like briskets and pork shoulders. The body is constructed from 13 gauge welded steel that is coated with a heat resistant matte black paint. The two over sized wheels make moving this cooker simple. It's 20" x 41" 304 stainless steel grate provides enough cooking space and can hold a whole hog of meat.
The PR Series roasters have a 13 gauge drip pan carries undesirable fats to a drip tube that drains to the outside of the unit. The pan prevents charring from the coals and allows a pig to be cooked without needing to be turned. It has a top and bottom damper and a removable air vent. All PR series cookers come equipped with a stainless steel thermometer installed in the lid to monitor the roaster temperature. All transportable units have easy lube hubs.
The PR42 series utilizes an even distribution of heat swirling around the closed lid for uniform cooking, without burning the meat. Smoke fills the open cavity and under the skin as the fat is rendered down, flavoring the meat in a way unlike any other method. Whole pigs are placed on the rack and the lid is closed and not opened again until meat is ready.
