Here are a bunch of accessories, in no particular order, that KBQ:
This one fits the Cookbox well and is a good value. Stow the Firebox and Controlbox inside the Cookbox, then pop it on.
Good quality Leviton switch, which fits the plug on the Controlbox. Lets you easily kill the fans while you fluff your fire to minimize ash entrainment.
The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling
A Meat-Smoking Manifesto
Perfect for catching both external grease drains.
Any ‘Gastronorm 1/1’ size (325 x 530mm actual, 12 x 20in nominal) steam pan will slide right into the KBQ rack system to intercept grease drippings, serve as a water pan, or cook beans, okra, etc.
This is not a ‘forever-quality’ tool, but it cross-cuts quickly, safely, and without a sawbuck.
Not cheap, but keeps the sharpy thing stationary when you’re splitting logs at 5:30 a.m. Add a 2- or 3-lb sledge to provide the grunt.
Go for the 24″ width. Here’s Aaron Franklin’s method for wrapping brisket.
Enables 1-handed use, which is really nice when you’re wrapping huge hunks of greasy ‘cue.
Good quality for a whole lot less than a Cambro. Keeps ‘cue warm for many hours. KBQ Wire Shelves, being 325 x 530mm, slide right in.
These are a good value, being reasonably accurate and cheap enough to be disposable. The probes easily fit through KBQ Cookbox ports.
Really well-made, like all Thermoworks gear. One is included with each KBQ pit – if you need a replacement, buy it direct from the manufacturer.
Great for checking wood before you buy. For best results, look for 20-30% MCDW.
