  1. I do a lot of high heat searing on it, there's no problem with this, except mine is no more flat...maybe I should use the lifetime warranty. I use it once for heat deflector but I prefer using an aluminium foil, less trouble when you want to go from indirect to direct cooking
  2. Totally agree with you For my defence, 99% of the time I cook 3 Ribs at the time (the Costco one),so it's not essential. I bought it for the 1% remaining. I don't desperate, summer is coming...so are the pool parties...
  3. Some on a panel and others (heavy one) on a table. All of this is near my patio door in my garage. The last place need some love a bit. I'm thinking about something else, a solution that would be more elegant and much more wife/children-proof
  4. Congratulations John At first, when reading the title, I thought : did he get an electric barbecue... [emoji6]
  5. I've not tested the kamado blaze, maybe this year. The big Joe is a really great kamado, and even more with the new hinge system and fire box. But for me, the only "default" is that for a daily use it eats too much charcoal, 1 bag/week if you're bbquing 5to7 days/week. I think the blaze is much more fuel efficient but it's​ a bit smaller than the​ BJ. KJ and blaze are well supported by BBQ Québec, so one or the other will not be a problem. KK is in another league but with the Dollars rate change, the shipping and duty it costs more $$$

  7. Heat gun and propane torch. Heat gun light fire faster. I use this one http://tinyurl.com/hyzkvxc From 0 to 450 in less than 10 minutes. But when I m too lazybones to plug the heat gun, I use the torch. Envoyé de mon SM-T800 en utilisant Tapatalk
  8. How much of charcoal is a full load on the beast? Envoyé de mon SM-T800 en utilisant Tapatalk He states it in his OP 3 chimneys. I was asking in your beast when you run 50h at 350Envoyé de mon SM-T800 en utilisant Tapatalk

  10. I agree--it smells like summer! Totally agree. It's a very distinct smell of nostalgia...And possibly cancer...but whatever. Here's the full video if you guys are interested in watching. It should have been finished hours ago but 1) The grill went ALL AFTERNOON and 2) I got another bogus copyright claim and had to redo much of the video after I uploaded it the first time. If you guys knew how screwed up YouTube's content ID system is it would blow your mind. It's ostensively supposed to prevent crime but it could not be more perfectly designed to create it. Anyways, back to the fun stuff. Enjoy! Nice/interesting video Did you do the same test on the komodo? Envoyé de mon SM-T800 en utilisant Tapatalk
  11. Ï do similar efficiency test with all my new barbecue Except I put only one Steven Raichlen chimney of charcoal lump (not brisket) and set it to 500f and I monitor how long it runs without dropping and the outside temperature it was during all the test. know, I'm waiting for summer temperature for doing the same test and see how it impacts efficiency Happy to see I'm not the only one to do such thing...

  12. He should ask for a pair of balls... Or return it to the store
  13. I must admit, I shied away from KJ for a few months because of the lack of activity on the website. If not for John's videos continuing on YouTube, I would not have purchased my Big Joe. I understand FaceBook and Twitter are popular and the way to go, but there is still a large segment of the internet who avoid social media. +1 for this one Facebook and twitter are not the internet, not updating the KJ website and put only news on FB or twitter is a terrible mistake Because the entry of the KJ experience on the web is the website. This is where the product should be exposed, not on a social media. This is not normal to have to read 6 different places (the website, youtube, 2 forums, FB, twitter ) to find the baseline information. Me too, if it wasn't from John' videos on Youtube, I would have thought that KJ was dying, if not already... My 2 cents..

    Hopefully the freezing rain just passed Mine should come back from repair service this afternoon, just in time for SuperBowl
  15. Hello ! So Let's Introduce myself: I'm a charcoal BBQ Lover. I had a Weber performer for 5 years, Last year in the spring, I bought a Broil King Keg 5000 that made grow my love for barbecuing in the way i couldn't imagine. Just before winter, I found that my BKK was a bit limit in space for party and when receiving friends, so I decided to change my Weber for a Big Joe with the project to maybe keep only the BJ and sell my BKK. I changed my mind about this, because of the charcoal consumption that is not what I anticipated, I will certainly write a post about this because I would have been happy to find such a comparison and avoid me a sort of "deception". Now, I'm evaluating the option to maybe change my BKK for a KJ Classic. I'm looking for new recipes, new gadget, new tips, idea to build a table for my 2 barbecues.....
