So bummed right now. My wife got me the 24" Pit Boss Kamado at Costco for Father's Day. I had only used it twice... once to do some pork belly and once to do a rack of ribs. Both times the temps were around 225-275. Over the weekend I did an overnight smoke of 2 pork butts and then did 2 racks of ribs yesterday. Both time around 225-250 again. Well yesterday I noticed a LOT of smoke coming out from around the top vent... much more than the first 2 times I used it. I had some replacement hi-temp felt (purchased right after getting the cooker but then after using it didn't think it needed it) so I decided to try that. Took off the top vent and what I found is the attached picture.
Not sure what to do now. Really not enjoying the thought of trying to load this thing up and take it back to Costco. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I'll concede that in the cold light of day, with my Monday Morning Quarterback hat on, throwing a pizza onto this inferno possibly wasn't the best culinary choice I've ever made...
In my defence, I was hungry; and I also read that charcoal is good for you...
Before I put the 2nd pizza on, I employed a devious hidden Kamado technique - I closed the bottom vent and mysteriously, the blue flames went away and the 2nd pizza was only a tad burned
