  1. About how long to reach IT at 225?
  2. Do you have a link to this setup? I like the price point.
  3. Thanks for the dogpile. I access this website through Tapatalk which does not show the terms of service at the top of every forum. Thank you for the link. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Can I get a link to the most current terms of service for this website? As a third party, I don't understand what was posted by the OP that required a ban. I see a consumer unstaisfied with service--he attempted to get replacement through the customer service avenue, and is unsatisfied with the results. He posted his displeasure with his third top vent, and he gets the ban? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Cut a piece of cardboard as a template. Transfer to steel and cut on the lines. Too easy.
  6. Casting flaw. Not a big deal Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. All hardware should be metric since it was built in China. That KJ has the new segmented firebox, so I assume it has the new "million dollar" hinge--you should not have problems with it yet. What are you trying to adjust with it? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Where in Austin are you getting the beef plate ribs? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. They have been in the "outdoor" section at both Austin Costco's and the Cedar Park Costco for a few months. Saw them at the William Cannon store last week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Sounds like you plan on doing it already, but covering Costco and Papa Murphys take and bake would be awesome. I think these are both available nationwide. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I don't fault them for fixing the issues, but it seems KJ specifically has a lot more issues than other brands. Cracked fire bowls (old style), cracked bases, non fitting accessories (big joetisserre). It seems KJ is always being discussed in regards to warranty work. Which could help explain the large price increase for the 2017 models--owners are paying for what appears to be an abnormally high warranty rate. KJ is not absorbing these warranty repairs. I don't see near the warranty issues with other brands--Vision, BGE, Primo, Pit Boss--other than easy fix items, like gasket.
  12. Sam's had them in Choice at $7.99/lb Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Welding cast iron sucks. Run non galvanized nuts and bolts through your big 3/8 holes to seal, and re-drill smaller 1/8 holes.
  14. Bought this from Amazon for my Vision Classic B and can confirm today it fits like a champ, out of the box. Fit, finish, and quality are top notch at the price point. No air gap, and no adjustments to lid--drop it in and go. Bought mine at $95.99 last week and looks like the Amazon bots have upped it a few bucks since then--but still a bargain. Long cord for the motor and square stainless shaft so it won't unscrew like the cheap universal rotisserie kits. I refuse to pay Joetisserie retail for Chinese imported products. Looking forward to trying it out! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01N03ZWML/ref=sxts_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1497119862&sr=1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65
  15. Why does this forum get so ruffled when others post their opinions? That's the great thing about the Internet and the various forums that go along with it. It's a place to state your opinion, not to attack another person for his opinion because your opinion differs. There are just as many or more "my KJ firebowl cracked" or "my JOEtisserre does not fit my KJ" posts as Akron problems. No one company is perfect. This whole "Big 3" fanboy rhetoric gets old. The guy likes his Akron better than the "Big 3"--let him opine. No need to get so defensive. Go cook. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  16. Thanks for the heads up. Just got my 5 bags, and they even stacked my 10% mil discount as well! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Very nice! Let me know when the Vision version is ready! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Nice cook. In fact, your video made me go grab 4 cowboy ribeyes from Sam's. I enjoy your videos, but please step up a shirt size please! The Saran Wrap fit is a bit disconcerting! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  19. I like Tarheels advice. Let them break the Vision and buy a new KJ. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. I think you are chasing your tail adjusting the bands to make the JT fit, unless you plan on only using the JT all the time. It would get quite annoying to adjust the top bands every time you swap out. From what I read, the JT is designed as a drop in fit, and not an adjust to fit item. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. I eat at food trucks all the time, but I live in Austin and there is an awesome eclectic food truck industry here. I try a lot of of them and return to the ones that really stand out and offer something unique--not your regular run of the mill offerings. We here in Austin can be picky in our food truck selection. Your burger looks good but the plain jane potato bun keeps it from top notch. Try a brioche or something exotic or unique that sets it off. Nacho presentation is nice, but the canned nacho cheese sauce would keep me away. Master a queso recipe and stay away from the neon cheese sauce that screams county fair or high school football game fare. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Looks great Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I was just reminiscing and I can't remember his wrap/no wrap philosophy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
