    Welcome to the Guru there are a lot of great people and information around here.
  3. Sounds like you had a tasty meal. Sausages you need to cook to temp, too long and they will dry out.

    Welcome to the Guru there are a lot of great people and information around here.
  7. There are no dealers for KK's. They are sold direct to the customer at what would be dealer pricing. But even us poor people own KK's. If you want one bad enough you'll figure out the money.

    Dealer suggestion on Kamado types

    The KK is in a class by itself, there really isn't any competition for it but it has a very small possible customer base. My vote would also be for the Primo lineup, due to the oval design, plus they also have one round version, so all bases are covered.

    Welcome, EDLaw.
  11. The komodo kamado is sure a beautiful unit. It might be for my personal use.
  12. Primo seems to make more as of rightnow. I got an email from the owner of KK they are pricey
  13. Thanks bud, Th idea of using the Oval shape as a selling feature is what's pushing me towards the Primo. I have yet to see a primo at any of the patio/bbq stores around here which is/was a bit of concern. The customer service is going to be a big factor because from a dealers standpoint, there is nothing worse than a customer breathing down your neck when your hands are bound because of crappy customers service from a manufacturer.
  14. Cooking chicken is one of the few times I'll advocate for using Applewood chips, spread over the top of the coal pile so they catch once in a while, flame up, and go out. Chunks risk an oversmoked product. TBH you could make chicken over straight lump and it would probably get a perfectly fine smoke profile. Not sure why you can't get over 300; I like cooking chicken at 325-375 to get it out of the smoke faster and crisp up the skin and surface fat. Start another thread about that one. I'm guessing you're using the dome thermometer and it may not be very good.

    Grilled Sprouts — Yes!

    I could eat these every day! Drop of canola, bit of sea salt & grilled at 350 (al dente)

    I thought so—the octagon shape and the heat-sink handles...
  17. I stumbled on this forum yesterday while looking for info on a grill I was looking at and realized it would probably be a pretty good resource for me. I bought a Char-Griller Akorn kamado last night and have not had a chance to do anything with it yet. I plan on using this grill (assuming it lasts) for the next year or two until I can get a ceramic kamado. I've not owned, or used, a kamado style before but felt it was a good mix of smoker/slow cooker/grill which is part of the way I justified the price of a $330 grill I expect to only last a couple years. Im looking forward to figuring out everything this grill can do and how to use it, and happy to join the community.

    Yup.. Finex... a Christmas gift from my wife I bough several of their other pieces so this one was just some icing on the cake.

    Finex cast iron? Whatever the manufacturer, that's a desirable pan.

    Thanks ck, Smoke ring on your bbq, leoparding on your pizza crust. couple of cool coking things
  24. I'm not a fan of injection, or at least until I taste one that improves the factory meat flavor. Ask away, I got a great pork but plan from a local smokehouse who makes the best I've had. All you have to do is rave about how great the meat in question tasted before you ask what temp, how long etc...etc..
