  1. Hi I got the inkbird IBT-4XS when they did the give away a few weeks ago and I'm thrilled with the thermometer it has 4 probes or put better 1 grill probe and 3 meat probes. It is great and also has a smart phone app to aid you in your grilling. The bluetooth connection is limited by the technology but is great when in line of sight. I will add some more photos when I get home I'm away on a business trip at the moment I have added the only photos I have of it on my phone at the moment
  2. I use a drip pan but no water
  3. Keeperovdeflame and I are thinking exactly the same thing... you have much less risk in cutting the legs off the heat deflector that way if anything was to go wrong the heat deflector is a much easier piece to replace with after market parts than the fire bowl. P.s. if the heat deflector you already have is metal it will be easier to cut than the ceramic is to notch
  4. great idea i used a cheap pizza stone placed on top of the grill grates supplied with the kamado then the pizza is higher in the dome and then you also benefit from the radiant heat from the dome, the only problem with that is after 6 uses it cracked in half so i spent £30 on a Kamado Joe pizza stone from Homebase which is twice as thick and haven't looked back. P.s. the 2 half pizza stones come in very handy for 2 zone cooking and deviding the fire box when using a rotisserie
  5. you had a bargain there.... if it were me i would treat this kamado to the full restoration it deserves. The removable fire box can be repaired by using either JBweld (there are high temperature variants) or after a good clean Fire cement. good luck and enjoy your restoration

    It's not the bands on this grill it's the hinge loosen off the bolts lift and lower the lid and give it a pull left and right and then add thread lock compound to the nut threads then tighten them until the nuts are just snug to the body of the hinge. Then open the lid and check the bolts in the middle of the hinge and do the same lift the lid pull the handle left and right then thread lock compound and tighten until just snug
  7. I've had my Pitt Boss for over a year and have not had any issue with the grate that came with the grill. Yes it does sit below the felt line but I have had no issue adding or removing food with the grill as designed. Tbh I think the cgs ring only really come into its own when you are looking to do a divided setup for say reverse sear steak but there are options to do that without it especially if you cut the hinge on the top rack and buy a half moon heat deflector.

    I own the pb24 from Costco I have had it a year and can't fault it. Only you can decide if the Big Joe is worth 3 LG kamados... just to make sure you know the LG has a 5 year guarantee on the ceramics so the warranty is not like for like with those 2
  9. Reach out to them the customer service I have had has been great. https://pitboss-grills.com/Shop-Pit-Boss/Grills/charcoal/ Scroll down to the bottom of the page the contact information is there
  10. LOL gotta love an Auplex Kamado
  11. Hi The price is very competitive and it looks like a great Kamado. In the ad it lists the kamado's that are the same size as it..... if I was in the market for a new kamado I would compare the price against them and also what bundles etc you can get.
  12. Hi Mark You are exactly in the same situation I was last year I had a small Kamado and wanted to get another larger one. I opted for the Louisiana Grill 24 inch from Costco UK. Personally I don't think it can be beaten on price for the cooking area you get for your money. And if you go to store and pick it up your self the price is lower than the Costco online price. If I were you I would visit a few different sellers of kamado and have a look and feel of what is out there so you can decide for yourself
  13. Hi Scott What extras do you need to add to the Louisiana grill? The only thing I have added to it is a pizza stone for pizza which you don't get in the KJ either and a rotisserie which also doesn't come with the KJ. Yes you don't get a D&C system but you can cook everything with the included plate setter as long as you are aware you will have to handle hot ceramic to do it.
