  1. im getting tired of my fireboard . i love everything about it besides all the wires. its a pain to untangle every time i go to use it. the fan controller is awesome, but we all know the kamado is pretty efficient on its own. i ended up grabbing a meater probe to try out. the one thing it has for sure over all the other probes is that you can use it with a rotisserie. but it is limited by the temperatures it can handle. but for slow and low cooking i think it will be great.

  2. I see your point it's a good one. I have a chimney from my pre Kamado days, but never used it on my Joe My fear is lighting too much charcoal, it should be ok for grilling steaks or burgers and pizza. But I'm never in a hurry getting the Joe going (It's an excuse to have a few fingers of makers mark and to relax). wife has noticed I go through more Makers since I got the kamado. she might be seeing things. But no mater what hope you enjoy the kamado

  4. Charcoal basket for sure. I really like a temp controller. I’m on my 3rd iKamand and it works flawlessly. If it breaks I may do the Fireworks controller next. But, KJ has replaced all of mine for free. There warranty is fantastic. Slow but fantastic.

  5. Welcome boater Classic 1 or classic II can't go wrong with either. I went with the classic II due to the 5 piece fire bowl and my wife wanted the air hinge , but then it's a personal choice. The cart you might be able to sell on ebay or something. Now for the accessories, many options one good thing about America is that once we buy something they find ways to get us to spend more money on accessories. I just have a ash basket and Joetisserie I use the basket all the time and the Joetisserie quite a bit. The electric starter in my opinion not needed. Temperature controller I have one but very seldom use the temp control part I use it for remote monitoring of the temp. I strongly recommend learning to use the grill with out the controller. I don't mean to try and sway you on anything but this is what I use. My only strong recommendation: is to read John's booklet

  6. Grill, charcoal basket are good choices. I keep mine outdoors, I use a cover. 5 Observations: Kamados come ready to cook. You don't need accessories. The charcoal basket and a deflector/drip pan are first choices. The rest depend on where you want to go with your cooking . Choice of kamado. They are more alike than not. No kamado envy here. Get what you can afford and is available. Lump, more alike than not. You put it in and light it, it burns. Some are hotter, some have bigger pieces, some people detect different smoke flavor. It all works. Wood chunks/smoke...Less is more. Keep in mind the folks you are cooking for. Don't over smoke. Grate vs dome temp. Does not make much difference as long as the dome thermometer is reasonably calibrated. I am pretty sure I could cook anything without a thermometer measuring grill temp. Comes with experience. Temp control device....I bought one, but I can use the kamado sans device. Certainly not a necessity for searing a burger.

  7. @Boater Consider the fireboard 2 drive with a fan when you get ready to move to a temperature controller...

    Wow! A buddy has a trailer down there where his house use to be before Katrina. Great times there. I hope everyone is okay. Are you back up and running? Keep smoking!
