    The little fella got an upgrade today!
     
    Added a perch and carry handles to the mini’s stand. Next step is clean up the tired handle and then wait for the new guts I’ve ordered to arrive.

    Thought I’d try roasting a duck on the joetisserie today.  First time ever roasting a duck so I’m don’t even know if I like it but it looks good.

    Also depending on the size of your pan, it is quite possible that when cooking above 300° in the jr. that pan might may been exposed to some direct flame. I may have attempted to usea secondary round pan to 'protect' the pan

    I bake based on grate temp. and make sure that I have whatever I am baking high up in the dome away from the fire with at least one deflector and sometimes two. The grate therm is set to read temps at the same level as the bottom of the food. In a lot of cases, the dome temp will be as much as 50* less than the grate temp especially in the range of baking temps.

    The little fella is coming along quite nicely. I had a mini at one time. It came up MIA in one of our OCONUS moves. Think I replaced it with a SBGE. 
    Be careful with the rain cap I am pretty sure that puppy would be very difficult to replace.

    Burgers are always done on the Blackstone.   Low and slow is either the Primo or the offset but mostly the Primo.  Pizza and baking are always on the Primo, alot of other things could be the Primo or the 22" Weber.  I tend to prefer the kettle for sausage.
     
    It depends!

    IMHO, it depends on what your cooking, and how you want to cook it, and the level of control you have or want.    Not sure I would ever use the kamado for frying, .i'm sure some have with success.   beside my kamados,  I have a 100K BTU propane burner I use for wok cooking,  I can get some nice wok-hei with the propane burner, not sure I could get that with a wok on a kamado.   I am intrigued by the blackstone griddle.

    I agree with Kamados keeping consistent temp. That's why I mentioned anything over 45 minutes, because those cooks usually require consistent and even heat. Under 45 minutes is just grillin' and I use my hand over the vent to determine my temps. Heck, my Kettle doesn't even have a thermometer in the lid and my food comes out amazing!

    I fought with having even heat and fluctuating temps in anything but sunny summer days.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved my kettles but kamados are way easier.  In my opinion.

    I think each grill is different and takes time to figure out . A few years ago when i lived in the other house my neighbor bought a  BGE  I helped him conquer it by keeping the beers open and giving moral support, on a lot of cooks .But we got him through the gas to charcoal learning curve. Never gave it much thought about firing joe up  probably cause it's my only option. My son in Okinawa swears by his kettle when he comes home to visit. He gets a new one every three years or so usually due to him leaving out side when a typhoon hits .

    I only have a Kamado Big Joe. But if i had a black stone, I probably wouldnt use my Kamado Joe for griddle style food. But because I dont have a black stone, I do use the kamado joe for smash burgers and searing steaks at high temperatures (you really cant get a nice sear in a home kitchen without smoking out the house). I wouldnt think there would be a taste difference between griddle style on kamado vs griddle style on black stone.  The main benefit i believe to having the griddle style accessories is to save the space from acquiring another grill (not that theres anything wrong with having a bunch of grills if thats what you like. I do like having the 1 grill on my deck that can “do a lot” vs having many grills/smokers though)

    Tried doing a couple pizzas on the mini today!  In a pinch I used a tortilla recipe I have for the dough. It worked but I’d like a good quick pizza dough recipe.

    If I'm cooking outside it's always on the KJC, since that is the only grill I have.

    Timing and weather right now.  My current deck is uncovered...if I feel I have a short window to get the cook done and it needs to be grilled (example...salmon as my wife would not be happy if I cooked fish in the house...even if it was never going to smell in the first place...)  In such a case to get it done before the rain starts...I fire up the gasser.  Set up and timing of when things go on and off typically affects me too.
    Last week smoking ribs...and the pork tenderloin I was making for the rest of the family...didn't want too much smoke to it given the marinade I was using and what I was going to use for leftovers...plus wanting it to all be done at the same time....Ribs were on the kamado with the pork tenderloin on the gasser.
    And sometimes its just comfortability.  Last night did a reverse sear on some bacon wrapped filets.  Still being a little new to the Kamado vs years on the gasser..I opted for the gas grill to cook up some foil wrapped corn on the cob as I know the timing of making it perfect to where we like it (then  took out mine and gave it a bit of a char on the Kamado since I had the heat up...and Im the only one in the family who likes the little char on my corn).
     
    Good to have the options.
    Most times...if I know I have the time to get coals going the right way...I will chose the Kamado.

    When to Kamado? 
    Always Kamado! 
    JK! 
    I too have a Blackstone. The meal will usually determine which is used. I can barely get stir-fry done on a 28" griggle, it would be fruitless for me to attempt it on the kamado. 
    There's videos of folks cooking steaks on a griggle. Uh, no. I have cooked them over charcoal and seared them with the Blackstone.
    My heart always leans to the charcoal!

    I am down to 2 main “grills”: KJ Classic II and a propane griddle.  9 times out of ten, I use my KJ as I live the flavor it gives me.  I do also use them in tandem by searing on the griddle with things like brats and such.

    I really just fire up what ever tool in my herd that I feel will do the best job on the guest of honor. Taste is a huge factor in this decision.
    Consumption of heat source whether it be gas, lump, or briquettes never have factored into my choice of grills.
