    Why do Recipes Call For Kosher Salt?

    I don't know the answer to your question but I had built this little table a while back for my own use..... These are gram weights of stuff I frequently need to convert back to other measures for the folks who don't speak metric. You can see from this chart that salts are not created equal at all... even 'kosher' salts. Your 25% number doesn't even jive with these measures. It's frustrating to say the least. Cooking experience will eventually get you to a 'salt to taste' measure UNLESS its in baking where you can't just add salt. This is the main reason the metric system weights are so much more reliable than volume measures of any kind for cooking. In some cooking precision doesn't matter much. In others, it does. The thing about salt is... that... well.... salt is salt. Sodium chloride. Kosher salt... sea salt.. table salt... it's all the same stuff. The boutique salts have other trace minerals in them that give them color or other characteristics but they don't translate to anything else when cooking with it. It's still NaCl. 1 Tablespoon of table salt is a LOT MORE salt than 1 tablespoon of Diamond Crystal kosher salt. By my measurements, it's 70% more. That's enough to screw up a recipe. When you are reading a recipe, if it just says 'salt' then you should use table salt.... or your own calculated version of a kosher/sea salt equivalent. For more AWESOME information about cooking with salt, check out the book called "Salt Fat Acid Heat" by Samin Nosrat.

    iKamand v2

    The Kamado Joe iKamand that has been plagued with issues since it's initial release has been updated with some hardware revisions that have corrected all of those problems. I have been testing the pre production and production model of this update for quite a while now and it has performed flawlessly for me. This updated version of the iKamand is hitting the streets in the next week or two for anyone who might be interested.
  11. If you are a Kamado Joe owner and bought your grill NEW, please vote in this poll!
  12. I decided to post this video as a sticky in this forum because the questions about SMOKE come up fairly frequently. I would also love to hear your feedback and discussion of anything I didn't include in this video or other topics that need to be discussed in regards to our application of SMOKE to our cooking....
  13. I was asking around on another forum about getting a custom grill grate made and was referred to: The Burn Shop http://theburnshopwf.com/ I sent him my design idea.... he promptly sent me this proof: I couldn't shell out the money fast enough.... shortly after that I got an email with this photo: 3/16" carbon steel... This is a 21.5" grate that I'm gonna use in my drum smoker...

    Looking for Feedback: Adjustable Rig for KJ Classic

    It doens't get quite as high as the KJ extender.. maybe an inch or so lower. That would work if you are working with a rack on the very top, one on the middle position of the 3 adjustable racks, and one rack on the very bottom.

    Pit Controller or DoJo?

    I'd probably suggest the iKamand since you can use it on a lot of cooks (don't use it for pizza!)

    Looking for Feedback: Adjustable Rig for KJ Classic

    There is a way to do that. You need two of the grates shown in this video and the oval grate shown in this photo: https://ceramicgrillstore.com/collections/kamado-joe-classic-accessories-by-ceramic-grill-store/products/classic-adjustable-rig-r-and-b-oval-combo-kamado-joe With 3 racks, there isn't gonna be much clearance between them.

    iKamand v2

    Yes... this one requires control by a smart device and must have a wifi connection. There will come a time when you will be able to control it without it being connected to wifi, but that will still require a smart device to connect to it directly via its own wifi connection. IUf you want a controller that can operate totally independent of smart devices / wifi control, I would recommend having a look at the new Flame Boss 500 that is getting ready to roll out any day now. It will do that but it can be controlled via smart device / wifi as well.
