  1. When I build a new house I'm going to find the guy that installed these windows and hire him to install mine.

  2. Nice. I still have my Big Joe I that I purchased in 2014. I've replaced the firebox, gasket and the heat deflectors. It was on a stand but it became a stand alone when I made my patio.

    Finally bought my grill I always wanted, just never had the extra money for one. Bought the KAMADO Joe classic 2. Had a Weber, nice grill. Everything comes out better on the Kamado. Thinking the lump has a lot to do with it. Still learning, definitely enjoying it. Picked up the Fireboard controller with it. Appreciate everyone, lot of great stuff going on. Many thanks!

  4. Keeperoftheflame's recent post about the green egg wireless grill dome thermometer got me back on the hunt for one. I often wished for a wireless dome thermometer that replaced the factory one on my akorn jr so that I could monitor grill temps and know when to go start turning down vents while I was inside prepping food, etc. I had looked for one a couple years ago with no luck whatsoever. Didn't appear anyone made such a contraption although it seems like a fairly simple and useful idea. I love my ink bird 4 probe blue tooth thermometer but don't get it out unless I'm needing to monitor meat temps. Did a quick search after reading about Keeper's and found this: XPX Bluetooth Digital Charcoal Grill Thermometer, Smart Alarm Digital Instant Read Thermometer with 2 Probes | Grill Parts America I actually found it on amazon at a price of $25.99. Never heard of that brand but for the price had to at least try it. Received it a couple days ago and had a chance to use tonight while cooking a leg of lamb. I set up my ink bird probes to check accuracy and the XPX pretty much dead on. In addition to the dome thermometer it has ports for two wired probes which are included. Install is a snap. It comes with aluminum plate heat deflector to go between the unit and your grill which I did not use. Besides being god awful ugly, when in place I barely had any thread engagement for the wingnut inside the dome. Ran the grill up to 550 or so and the back side of the unit was nice and cool even w/o the deflector. Here's a couple pics installed and in use: Worked perfectly. It has a decent app that tracks and graphs temps as well as set limits for alarms, etc. Still playing with it but looks and feels like the ink bird app. Blue tooth works decent but does not have as good of range as the ink bird. My biggest dislike is that it takes AAA batteries and not rechargeable. Overall though I am very satisfied with it. We'll have to see how long it lasts. At 25 bucks I don't have high expectations. BTW, the leg of lamb turned out delicious:

  5. 9yrs later the classic is still making yummy food.. So far no issues with this thing. Only thing replaced so far is the gasket this past year. Use the Joe quite a bit too. Firebowl cracked maybe 6yrs back- have the replacement for it but never swapped it out. Broke heat deflector few cooks back using pizza stone as deflector. Didn't realize how expensive things have gotten

  6. Continuing my experiments with cooking fish and seafood high in the dome, this time I tried Steelhead filet in a garlic laced thick teriyaki glaze. The dome thermometer read 425* and the fish was cooked indirect to an IT of 115*. Here are some photos: -A thick side of fresh Steelhead from Costco. -A large portion rubbed with lemon-infused EVOO and sprinkled with smoked paprika. -Pulled from the Joe Jr. when the IT hit 115*. -Plated and sauced with a commercially prepared thick teriyaki laced with fresh garlic run through a garlic press. -Garnished with scallion greens, a little cilantro, sesame seeds, cucumber spears marinated in rice vinegar and radish. Thanks for Looking and Happy Cooking.

    KJ Classic vs XL Oval

    Hey Guys, appreciate all the responses. I ended up going with the KJ Classic 2 mainly b/c of price. My Costco had it for $799 and that included the D&C 2 tier system with the deflector plates, grate tool, ash tool and a cover. I went this past weekend and they had 2 left that were now down to $600. Anyway, very happy with my purchase. Appreciate all the input here.

  8. I went to 4 stores today looking for the decaf diet ginseng green tea Mrs. Boater prefers. Found 1 gallon total. But in compensation, one store had a sign, apologizing that their advertised price for baby back ribs ($2.99/lb.) was wrong. They were $2.49. I told them that I accepted their apology, and grabbed some Made up (in my mind,at least) for the lack of tea. And they had a bunch of other tea jugs. Just not the one I was looking for.

  9. Just heard the Queen of England has passed away. Compared to the clowns we have here in politics and the clowns in the royal family she was the pinnacle of class and dignity she will not be replaced. God bless the queen

    KJ Classic vs XL Oval

    For reference, I just did a brisket on the XL this weekend and this is how much space I had on the extension racks with 2 layers of heat deflectors and a drip pan underneath
