  1. Kamado Konfused

    I have had a lot of grills but when I began thinking about a kamado style I went with a Akorn because of price. After a year of cooking on that I knew I wanted to go all in and liked the KJ for the new features. I caught the Costco deal and got the Big joe and the JR. Having the JR is nice but if I hadn't gotten it that day I would have gotten the Big Joe because I knew I would have cussed every time I needed more room.
  2. Leak finder?

    This. /\ Start some lump and get some wood chunks going really good and shut it down with the smoke rolling, should be able to see where it's coming out.
  3. Primo XL Table Finally Finished

    Table looks great.
  4. Monty, just wanted let you know I gave this a try last weekend and it came out really good. I don't have a way to spin it yet so I did spatchcock and will be doing it again.
  5. Thanks, will be giving this a shot.
  6. I love pollo a la brasa and that looks about as good as any I have had, would you be willing to give up the measurements?
  7. Brisket Practice

    Looking good. I like a chucky done slow.
  8. I think your upper part of the nest is the wrong part. From the top of my bottom vent to the ring is 3 1/4 inches and from the top of the sleeve to the ring is 7(your last pic) and I have a slight gap all the way around. Its almost like they packed a classic upper with the BJ lower base.
  9. Walmart brand super cooler

    We have been camping on the eastern shore this week and I have the Ozark 73 qt and a Coleman and the Ozark has blown the Coleman away as far as ice retention goes. My son in law has a Yeti and Rtic and his son has a Ozark all in the 50 something size and the Ozark is right up there with them. I would pick up another Ozark without hesitation, especially for under 2 bills.
  10. What's a good grill cover for the classic Joe?

    I bought one from them to cover a table I had for my Akorn at the time so I just got a rough measurement and went from there, the covers are nice and reasonable. I would go with a large, the medium might be a little tight. When the cover that came with my Big Joe needs to be replaced I will buy from them again.
  11. Fire starter

    +2 on the cotton balls and alcohol
  12. New to the CJ

    Nice way to jump right in. Good looking cooks.
  13. KJ Classic vs. KJII Classic

    I bought a demo Big Joe at a Costco road show so I imagine it was opened as many times as a normal person would open theirs over a couple of years and haven't had to adjust anything yet.
  14. Advice from Kamodo'ers - Cast Iron grates ...

    With my Akorn and CI pans followed my mothers lead........ Did the the initial with crisco and then spray with pam or wipe down with veg oil after every cook.
  15. What's a good grill cover for the classic Joe?
