  2. I cut the hinge of the top rack on my 24 it offers the flexibility of only using half of the rack whilst cooking on the bottom rack also if you want all of it it's easy to reinstall. You don't need to worry about the rack falling either as the arms on the rear rack support it
  3. Please don't use the cheap Costco instant light stuff in your kamado it can leave a residue in the ceramic and a weird flavour in your food. It is impregnated with wax to help it burn and when lit in a ceramic kamado it can get into the ceramic. Just use the lump wood charcoal in your Pitt boss and keep the instant light stuff for metal grill type barbeque or a chiminea. If you have used it clean out all of the ash in the bottom of your kamado and I would do a high temperature cleaning burn to make sure you get rid of any residue.
  4. Yes this is what I do just invest in a good pair of BBQ gloves
  5. You may be better using brake caliper paint as it's formulation is for high temperature application
  6. Hi If you search the forum for Kinuurayaki pottery you may find a few threads here that will help nige
  7. Hobbies other than cooking DIY I have uploaded some photos of my previous projects here. I enjoy Woodturning (I'm still learning) and I also enjoy riding my motorcycle which my friend has just finished a complete overhaul/rebuild on for me
  8. I usually put my hand in the smoke coming out of my top vent and then smell that. I gives a good indication of what the meat will taste of
  9. I don't think it antique I think it's from either the 60's or 70's. If you are planning to use it I would not be looking to go over 300f as the ceramic that it is made from won't take those temperatures. If you have a look through the treads here there are some rebuild threads with very similar kamados featured
  10. If you take off the back plate off the hinge then remove the springs (easiest done when the lid is open) you need someone holding the handle to make sure the lid doesn't slam down. Then with the lid closed as best you can you should be able to loosen the band's enough to adjust the hinge band's so the lid will close. Then tighten up the bands replace the springs and the back plate and you should be good to go. I wouldn't advise adjusting the bands in place without taking the springs off the hinge. I have heared they can move with some force.
  11. Something like this would hold the fire box together and it's adjustable if it loosens off
  12. I would do the same as most of the kamados on here do and add a layer to your lid as well it should help even out the differences between the lid and base
  13. hi i wouldn't purposely break the kamado base just to glue the sections together. I have seen people on here use fibre glass matting and the type of fire cement you have to glue up fire boxes that have cracked. you have to make sure the inside of the kamado is spotlessly clean even if that means sanding the inside, either side of the crack and scraping out where the crack is and driving in the fire cement with a scraper into the crack from the inside. then apply the fibre glass matting then apply the fire cement over the top and smooth out. leave this to dry out for a few day
