  1. I have an 18" classic and rarely wish for additional space. Depends on how large of group your cooking for I guess. That being said I have NG Weber to supplement my KJ with when the need arises.
  2. I have a [black] 2012? 18" Classic 1 that does everything I want it to do with VERY minimal fuse - after completing the required learning curve of course. No Magic Control Tower , Gimmicky Slow Roller, or useless multiple cooking levels...Just the tried and true Divide / Conquer. It lives outside 12 months a year {under a cover} in our harsh Northern Canadian weather & still looks and cooks like new. However, I do take care of it to a certain degree. I can't personally see how it can be beat.
  3. I have a KJ Classic 1 with the cast iron daisy wheel. No issues here...
  4. Cast iron seasoning. The internet's favorite topic with a never ending list of required materials. Magic mystical seed oils, special creams, wax pucks, bees wax, and organic sprays. What total B.S. Use it. Daily if you can. Put what ever you have on hand to "season" it. Done.
  5. They day I buy hard boiled eggs will come at the same time I pay for [bottled] water!
  6. I have been using a free app called Endomondo. So far it's really helped motivate me.
  7. 2 Years later... Where are you at with this Setzler?
  8. Ditching a Cassic 1 to "upgrade" to Classic 2 doesn't make much sense to me. I'm totally satisfied with my black Classic 1.
  9. I manage well with an alcohol soaked cotton ball or 2 and a wooden match. Sometimes my thoughts are that folks are taking the simplicity [and thus some of the fun] out of outdoor cooking with all these gizmos and gadgets. To each his own I guess.
  10. Me too! It cant get any simpler than this. I wouldn't be without the ash pan. If I had to vacuum the cooker out after every cook I can say with certainty that I would not be using it much.

    New KJ Owner!!

    I have the original 2014 Classic 1 in Black. I see no need whatsoever to get a newer model. In fact I prefer the bullet proof cast iron daisy wheel vent. I am stil on my original felt gasket. I would like to get the KJ charcoal basket for it but I cant seem to locate one anywhere in Canada.
  12. I had a real tough time getting eggs to peel consistantly. The problem l discovered lies in the cooking method. I found this method online somewhere and I now swear by it: *Add refrigerated eggs to a rapidly boiling pot of water. Bring water back up to a meduim simmer and cook uncovered for 13 minutes. Remove eggs and rinse very well in cold tap water to cool the eggs quickly. I then simply put then back in the fridge until I am ready to use them. I take a boiled egg in the shell to work for breakfast most days and they always peel easily with no problem at all. Glenn
  13. Plus the install of the new style gasket is a bit of a chore and never seems to turn out as nice as factory.
  14. I have never had any success with Maple Leaf. Never. I have run through perhaps 15+ bags of M.L over time and not found a decent bag . Basques is a FAR superior Canadian product. The contriversal blue bag Royal oak is even better over all.
  15. Id be on my way home with it if I lived that close...
  16. Then why bring the comparison between the iKamand and FB up at all if your not prepared to speak on it? Perhaps you could provide a solid review of your use of the FB400 alone.
  17. In what respect does it not work as well as the iKamand? Ability to hold a steady temperature or?
  18. I have had lots of cooks go this way. More than Id like to admit. I usually abandon the use of my KJ for a week or 2 [out of frustration] if the cook goes real bad... I had a Broil King Keg before I got my Kamado Joe Classic. and I was more comfortable with overnight cooks on it. I have not fully learned to control my classic consistently yet. More practice required I guess.
  19. I like them the best of all the new high end Pans. Too bad they only have 2 skillets at this time.
  20. I have a large Weston I bought maybe 7 years ago for $400 which seamed crazy at the time. It saw moderate use until my son took up hunting...In the last 2 years it has probably sealed 1000+ bags. Still works like new.
