    C-60 Comments

    Hello everyone,

    I am writing to you from the BBQ deficient area of Massachusetts. I tasted great BBQ around the country but I just could not find anything more than "maybe decent" around where I live -- so I decided to start cooking it myself.

    I just ordered a C-60. I bought it after reading the comments on the C-60 smoker on this website.

    Unfortunately, I can't find anywhere that awesome thread about the C-60 smoker which convinced me to buy that smoker. That thread had everything: pluses and minuses of the C-60, how to correct some things, tips about getting great BBQ on the C-60 and a lot more.

    Can anyone help me to find that C-60 discussion thread somewhere in the forums? If I try to click on the "Comments" section of the C-60 review (which is where I found those comments initially) it shows "zero comments" which is not what I saw a few weeks ago.

    Thank you,
    Flaviu

          Welcome to the Pit from NE Washington state. Along with tips, techniques, and recipes about BBQ we have a lot of fun. If you like music, go to this thread to hear what others are listening to and share what you like. For jokes, go to this thread. Happy to have you along and looking forward to your participation.

          Now as to your question, before I purchased my 'C-60', which is referred to as a 'KBQ' by most users, there were two review pages, one with a few comments, and one with a plethora of comments. I bookmarked the latter, but pulling it up showed no comments. I logged into my Disqus account, found my comments, and clicked onto the thread. I got the same review page, however no comments. I did find the comments here, however I don't know if you have to be logged into Disqus to see them. https://disqus.com/home/discussion/a...ent-3339290075

            When the site moved to Drupal some comments made it, some didn't. As far as I know they're trying to dig them up to restore them if at all possible. Perhaps BigJim can help.

                Thank you everyone for the warm welcome!

                Ionnie Mac and EdF: The first comment thread I can access -- and it's mouth watering good! The second link takes me to the review section for the KBQ but it shows me "0 Comments." That second link was where I was able to see over a hundred comments which eventually convinced me to buy the KBQ, but there are no comments there now.

                I'm sure I will find enough information in the PIT; but there were several comments there about by someone named Dave (I think) who gave details about how he gets heavenly brisket with the KBQ; about how he modified the lid of the KBQ to get better BBQ and even some detailed analysis of Aaron Franklin's brisket YouTube video to "steal" some of Franklin's secrets.

                I'm wondering if those comments were deleted by mistake or if they were relocated.

                Oh, and I can get easily to the "Butcher Boy" shop in North Andover, MA (they have excellent products for steak and I'm sure they have decent stuff for BBQ). But if anyone here has tips for good butcher shops for quality BBQ feel free to let me know.

                  Cool. I lived in Ipswich from 2002-2014. Kind of wish I still did.

                  You're right - the comments below the review are gone! Husky !

                Hi ComfortablyNumb,

                Yes, your link works! That's the discussion that I was looking for. Thanks a bunch!

                EdF, Ipswich is great in the summer -- still no South-league BBQ there though.

                  That's because I moved. ;-)

                  Have you tried American BBQ up in Rowley http://tabbq.com/? Not bad, but probably not quite what you're reaching for. Lot of good sides though. And they have Texas sausages. They're also in the Cummings Center in Beverly. Then there's these guys in Peabody on the strip: http://tennesseesbbq.com/

                  Both places are pretty good and worth a stop in.

                  by Texas sausage, are you referring to the infamous "hotgut"?

                  "Have you tried American BBQ up in Rowley http://tabbq.com/? Not bad, but probably not quite what you're reaching for."

                  I did try them and I liked them on my first try. But then the next time I drove a lot to get to them and it was just not the same.

                  It's hard to drive 40+ minutes for inconsistent results. I'll give the Tennessees BBQ guys another try too -- I think I tried them once.

                  The best BBQ I've had in the North East was in New York. The burnt ends at "John Brown Smokehouse" were consistently mouth-watering.


                  In other news, my KBQ is arriving next Thursday and I have guests on Saturday! I have to stock up on wood and find good BBQ cuts fast. I'll post some updates in The Pit.

                    Looking forward to your posts. If you will also post them on the KBQ has landed thread started by Ernest it is where most of us KBQers hang out.

                      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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                      Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
