We got our Karubecue (KBQ) smoker last week – the KBQ C-60 Pit – and ohhhhhhhhhh, baby!
The first thing anyone can see – this is one solid, well-made unit. It’s packed like a dream, too and arrived in absolutely pristine shape. (Wiener dog approved as well…)
Assembly instructions were clear and easy to follow and we had it all put together and ready to go on our deck in about 30 mins or so. (Screwing on the back casters was the most awkward part since you have to reach into the unit and find the holes at the back, but nothing crazy. Two of us made quick work of that)
It’s hard not to appreciate the quality of every piece as you fit it all together. Even an allen key was included (doesn’t always happen — usually when you need it most). KBQ Cares!
We’re stoked about the whole thing, but the firebox (the box you see sitting on top of the unit) and KBQ’s whole ‘inverted flame combustion’ technology is what’s got us more than curious…
So on a sort of side note, we’re the type of smoker folk that likes to cover things up when we’re on a smoker/pit hiatus. The KBQ doesn’t come with a custom cover, but when we asked the company about it, they recommended this generator cover (sold on Amazon), which really does fit over the unit perfectly. We had to rejig some of the racks inside to fit the firebox into the main cook box, but fit it does!
Exciting to see this come together – more exciting to think of what we’ll make with it. Salivating just thinking about the brisket, pulled pork, short ribs, back ribs… Stay tuned for more pics!

Thanks for the writeup! I’ve looked high and low for dimensions on this beast, but all I can find is overall HxWxD on Amazon. If you have the smoker still set up, could I trouble you to list the
(A) dimensions of the firebox (for storage)
(B) dimensions of the controller module (for storage)
(C) dimesions of the cookbox with firebox and controller module removed (for storage)
I ordered one of these last week and am trying to figure out the best way to go about storing the KBQ between uses and providing additional storage.
I’ve settled on this rolling cabinet, as long as the firebox and controller will fit inside.
