  1. I have the spider and 2 half moons and it's been great for me.
  2. I look forward to hearing about how well this works. It's another thing I never realized I could definitely put to good use.
  3. Yes everyone should vote. With the number of members the vote total should get up close to 100. We usually only have 30-40 votes.I understand people not wanting to enter but the least everyone could do is vote. Only takes a minute or two. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk The only downside is getting hungry looking at the amazing entries.
  4. My first instinct would've been that something is blocking javascript, but you said you turned off your adblock plugin. Are there any sort of notifications from chrome when you go to the page?
  5. Yeah, I like the Ballast Point sculpins too, I really enjoyed the grapefruit one.
  6. Welcome to the forums and congrats on such a good deal!
  7. Interesting! I was under the impression that it was designed to improve airflow and would therefore increase temperatures and not be as useful for low and slow, maybe I'm mistaken. I'm not really sure what the main purpose of the basket is then.
  8. I actually just made my way back to Russian River Brewery last week. I picked up a case of Pliny (they limit you to 12 bottles now), 2 growlers (64 ounces each), and a 6 pack of their sours. I probably make it to there 3-4 times a year so I need to stock up when I go. I've never made it out there for Pliny the Younger (their once yearly triple IPA). Last I heard it was 3+ hour lines to get in. Luckily, in the next few years they'll be opening up a much larger brewery fairly nearby. They've been at max brewing capacity for some time now, but are finally expanding to help keep up with demand.
  9. Sorry to hear about your faulty rig, at least you bought it from costco so there should've been no trouble returning it. Congrats on the new Kamado Joe!
  10. Aside from new thermometers and the gasket, I haven't made any changes and my grill has been great. The ash basket will help airflow and is probably more useful if you're trying to do higher temp cooks like pizza. For low and slow you probably don't need it, I haven't had any issues without it. For other mods/add-ons/toys you should consider, I definitely don't think there's anything you're majorly missing out on, maybe a pizza stone if you want to cook those.
  11. CGS now has a Pit Boss Spider. I am probably the only one with a Vision XL spider which had to be modified to fit the PB. Shortly after I did that CGS came out with a version that was designed for the PB so I would recommend you buy that one. The paella pan will work for some things and if it is a decent steel one, it won't melt. The Spider setup will be much more versatile but could be expensive with shipping to Oz. This is the reason I opted to not go the CGS route... $25 spider + $52 shipping to Canada... ridiculous in my books. They aren`t making a lot of effort to negotiate decent shipping rates to Canada with their providers - they are using posted publicly available shipping rates... A business that ships a lot should be able to cut those down significantly... I just had a 84 inch by 40 inch framed art piece (heavy acrylic paint) shipped from the US to my home in Canada and the cost was $140, hard to imagine that a small spider can`t be shipped for less than $52... I think CGS does not want to be bothered... My understanding is that CGS is a relatively small operation compared to lots of places so they might not be able to cut down those shipping rates to Canada as much as you think.
