    KBQ!!!


    Years ago I was jonesing for a stick burner. LSG to be precise. But for one reason or another I didn’t pull the trigger.

    Recently we started a rebuild of our garage and full back yard renovation. I felt a new cooker for the new back yard was only fair.

    I love my Primo so I was thinking about going all in w a Komodo Kamado. Still thinking about that. But it’s a yuge nut. In my mind that would need to be tied to a serious sales goal.

    Recently I came back to reading The Pit - I took a break from all social media in 2020 - and started reading that damned The KBQ has landed. About 60 pages in and the ballgame was over. I knew what I wanted. Actually I have to thank EdF. He planted the KBQ seed about 1.5 years ago. I poo pooed it bc I was so fixated on an off set. Well that seed grew and grew.

    So I knew what I wanted and figured in 2 months when the work is done, and I actually had a place to store it, I’d be calling Bill Karu. Well, you know what they say about mice and men...

    Next thing I know a Pit member in NJ was selling his and today I became a proud owner of a slightly used KBQ. AND he threw in 5 milk crates of wood AND a Fireboard. Only bad part is I’m not sure when I’ll be able to use it. There is literally nowhere to put it outside bc of all the construction mess. Ah well.

    I sort of feel like I did when I started watching The Wire 10 years after it was originally on. The hoopla has died down a little but I finally got one!!

          Based on the delays we keep having probably right around the next Presidential election 🙄. Probably in 2 months. 🤷‍♂️

        I think Primo and KBQ is a hell of a good combo. Pretty much nothing I can’t cook w those two.

                Lol...I guess my wife got tired of me pissing on her plants. Actually she insisted on that. Lol no way she was gonna allow the guys working into the guest bathroom.

                Yeah, I’m definitely not going to be using this for every cook. Gotta try a brisket in there though. Even if it kills me.

                    JCBBQ I am so glad you jumped on this as quickly as you did. I was going back and forth and then it was gone. I know i would have enjoyed it but i also know i would have been chiding myself for spending the money right now (never mind what the wife would say). I also know i probably wouldnt actually use it anywhere near as much as i was telling myself i would...that part wouldnt have stopped me though.

                    Congrats on the new cooker.

                      Thanks Grant! Yeah I think I was ready. I kinda knew as soon as I saw the post that I was going pull the trigger. The fact that he drove it up to me didn’t hurt either. Where in NJ are you?
