    So I'm thinking on buying a Karubecue

    Getting older, enjoy cooking BBQ and managing a fire, I like the footprint of the KBQ and the technology, got the cash......so why not? Told my wife the other day that I was thinking of this so that she'd get all her objections out.... What do you need another smoker for? How much does it cost? Where are you going to put it? Does it do anything different that your other smokers can't do? Are people on that BBQ website telling you to get it? Are you going to get rid of any of your others? I don't under stand why you need another smoker! All good objections.

    So she is finally running out of steam and now asks, so when are you going to order it? I think I'll wait another month and then hum and ah a bit. When she says, go ahead it will make you happy.....THEN IT'S FULL STEAM AHEAD!!

    But then do I really need another smoker.....

    Are people on that BBQ website telling you to get it?
    Hahaha! Nice one!

      We would never!

    Hmmm. I would say. Don't delay, order it today!


      I don't understand, You're the man, the head of the house, the king of your domain. Since when do you need permission?
      Oh no, my wife is coming got to go before she reads this.


        TripleB Are you sure that wasn't MY wife interrogating you last night? And, with all of her questions, it reminds me of a line from a John Prine song (Far From Me): 'A question isn't really a question, when you know the answer too.'


          First and foremost, and KBQ would ask the same thing, do you have a wood source? Do you have a place to store wood? Getting a cord or half cord is advisable if you plan on using it much. And now one specific to your area, what are the air quality rules in SoCal these days?

          If you have all the right answers to the above, you'll be very pleased with your new KBQ.


          Just remember guys....,,,...


            Spouses are weird, I did the hemming and hawing about a sub $500 flat top or a sub $1000 gasser... she says heck no. Out of no where one day she tells me to upgrade my MAK to the $4K+ stainless version... Maybe I need to re-attack with the hemming and hawing for the flat top

            As to you, that KBQ looks like a fun cooker, and if I ever decided I wanted to play with splits that's def the direction I'd go

            Can't wait to see you playing with one in a few weeks


              One cook on it and she will be happy!

                I have a Jambo smoker. It's great and produces great Que. But the foot print and cooking chamber are large. Two racks of ribs look dinky in it. As I mentioned and you know, the KBQ foot print is smaller, though it would take about the same amount of wood as the Jambo (one small spilt every 35-40 minutes). It's the technology and the down draft that intrigues me.

              Of course you need another smoker. And of course the people on this BBQ site are telling you to get it


                Well Played, Amigo!

                I buy it

                You buy it

                Yer Dear Wife, acts like she buys it, conditionally...


                  Suprise her with it, and then cook your last meal ribs. 🙄

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
