  1. Thats a shame, glad I got mine last year. Love the JR but probably would never have bought one on its own.
  2. Man, lucky it wasn't on your deck, you just need a new fire bowl. Is that the stock nest for the vision ?
  3. Congrats on the new grill, have fun .
  4. KJ Big Block, RO red bag and now that I have cooked on it a couple times Western lump. Have also used Frontier with out any issues.
  5. Don't know about the new ones but I bought mine last year and when the paint started peeling I just peeled all of it from the inside and kept on cooking. I really like the other features of the new versions over the first gen.
  6. Looks great, see a lot of fun cooks in the future.
  7. The only really must haves are a good meat thermometer, good lump and meat, fish or poultry everything else is a luxury
  8. When I do ribs I try to stay around 225-250 for 4-5 hrs and don't spritz, staying low on temp with the vents almost closed there's not enough air flow to dry them out. Thats what works for me.
  9. Patio umbrella in a weighted stand and bungeed to the back of the shelf.
  10. I'm no expert but have done about 2 dozen and shoot for around 225-250 and figure ball park around 1.5 hr per pound but rely on probe temp of around 205 to pull it. I always let mine sit on the counter for 10-15 minutes and then wrap in 2 layers of foil and put in a cooler under an old beach towel for a couple of hours. also like Mike Echo said check out the sticky at the top of this forum, lots of good advice.
  11. Looks like a perfect way to break it in. Nice looking cart too.
  12. That is good stuff, if you catch it at Costco road shows you can get the 30# bag for a little less.
  13. My wife also doesn't care for much smoke flavor, I always wait for the coals to stop giving off the white and heavy blue smoke and all is good.
  14. When I'm grilling chicken, burgers, brats I don't usually have the grill so hot that it's starving for oxygen so don't have to worry about burping.
  15. When I had my offset chargriller I would lay a welding blanket on it for doing low and slow.
  16. When I had my cart model I used 2 of the screws on the left side to mount a rack for utensils. I bought a Weber rack that hooks over the lip, flattened it out and drilled a couple of holes.
  17. I think I would be looking for a new supplier if I were them. That doesn't look anything like a prime rib.
  18. Buy the JR and then after the first time you try to take it somewhere explain to the wife what a huge mistake you made and that you really need to get the Akorn Jr for travel.....then you'll have it all. I love my KJ Jr for steaks and small cooks during the week.
  19. Congrats on the new cooker and couldn't think of a better inaugural cook.
  20. Good luck with your brisket, sounds like your off to a good start.
