  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Fire starter

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

    Nice way to jump right in. Good looking cooks.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. What's a good grill cover for the classic Joe?

    Classic Accessories 55-231-041501-00 Veranda Big Green Egg Grill Cover, Large this is the company I ordered from, has held up very well for 6 mos.
  9. London BBQ School ??

    I just look at it this way.......this forum is my international school of BBQ. I started out around a yr ago April with a Akorn and now have a big Joe and a Joe Jr and having a hell of a good time learning.
  10. Do I get the Joe Jr?

    I'm glad I went for the deal, I had a Akorn more than a few times needed/wanted more space. I use the JR quite a bit, can do a decent size roast even a small butt on it and its great for 4-6 burgers. If you get the chance at the deal go for it.
  11. Might want to hit up Gander Mountain and see if the have any left. The only problem is I don't think the have enameled ones but their Lodge stuff should be on sale.
  12. Kalua Pork

    Nice looking cook, where did you find banana leaves ?
  13. Nice looking cook
  14. Kamado Joe Paver Project

    Nice table and the stone is a nice touch.
  15. I have used both olive oil and mustard and they seem to work about the same. I do rub mine and then wrap tightly in plastic wrap and let them sit in the fridge over night if i have the time, it seem to let the rub soak in.
