  1. I just ordered yesterday directly from Kamado Joe. $29.99 included shipping. She asked if I had a local dealer which I don't but said you could get them there. Good luck.
  2. I have been using the boxes of coconut pucks a bunch of us bought a couple of years ago. My husband is happy to get them out of the shed. They do work well in the Jr. But produce a lot of ash. Glad I have a kick ash basket.
  3. I have the one from Harbor Freight on John's recommendation. Also refillable and works great. You have to buy the butane at Lowes. Harbor Freight does not carry it. It is located with the Welding supplies at Lowes.
  4. Could you possibly take the cover off and take a pic of your table. A friend is going to make a table for me and what I can see look like what a want.
  5. I just talked to Kamado Joe and it seems there is nothing in the works for a new vent cap for the Jr. Think I will go ahead with the Smokehouse one.
  6. I didn't know they made one for the Jr. I will look into this one. Thanks.
  7. Wow. Thanks for directing me to this thread. Lots of good ideas. Thanks again.
  8. I haven't been able to use my Jr. as much as I would like but I am having a lot of trouble with the vent cap. Every time I open the lid, the vent adjuster falls to the back. When I put the lid down, I have to readjust everything. It is very frustrating as sometimes I forget and end up with a hot fire. I tried tightening the screw but it is screwed down tight already. Any suggestions? I may call Kamado Joe and see if they have any suggestions but I thought I would throw this out to the group first.
  9. A little late on this thread but I put grill grate in and inverted a three inch high aluminum cake pan and put the diffuser on that. When I baked my pizzas I put them on parchment and on a small pizza pan. Cooked at 550 for 5 minutes. Worked perfect.
  10. I posted the recipe in the Artisan bread section. If you have any questions, let me know.
  11. This is a recipe I got on Pinterest. I baked them on a stone in the oven for 2 1/2 minutes instead of 3. Worked better for the pizzas. From Real Life Dinner 1 1/2 cups warm milk (105 degrees or so) 1/2 tsp yeast 1 tsp sugar 1 tsp salt 3 1/2 - 4 cups flour sprinkle yeast and sugar in the milk. Mix. Let it bloom a few minutes. Add to mixer if you have a stand mixer. Add flour and salt. I used about 3 3/4 cups. Mix until it is not sticking to the sides of the bowl. Put in oiled boil, cover and let rise for 2 hours. Cut into 12 equal balls. Put on a pan, cover and let sit for 30 minutes. while the dough is resting, put your stone in the oven and heat to 500 degrees. Roll dough in the shape you like. I made mine oval. You will need to flour your board lightly when rolling. You want them thin. I baked two at a time for 2 1/2 minutes. If you are going to use them for bread, go the full 3 minutes. For pizza 2 1/2 was perfect. They will puff way up in the oven. I stacked them and they collapsed. They made the best pizza dough. good luck.
  12. Yesterday I tried making Naan bread for the first time because I was too cheap to pay $2.50 for two at the grocery store. They were so easy to make. My recipe made 12. Last night we we made pizzas. I had pesto, grilled onions cheese and sliced tomatoes. My husband had his pepperoni and sausage. I have to say I like the naan bread so much better than pizza dough. They came out crispy and delicious. I made them at 550 degrees for 5 minutes. Perfect!
  13. I actually found a deep aluminum pan in my pantry so I turned it upside down and put the diffuser on top of that. I am using naan bread that I made today so I think the diffuser will work to put the pizza on. Do you have problems keeping the top piece (don't know what it's called) from swinging shut when you open the lid? I tried screwing it down but it was already tight. I am thinking about adding a washer.
  14. Tonight I am making pizza in my Joe Jr. The only way I have to get the pizza higher in the dome is by using a brick. I would heat it up at the same time as the diffuser. Does anyone have an idea if it will explode? I cook at 500 degrees.
