    Welcome to the club. One word of safety advice: when opening your kamado, burp it. You can accomplish burping by opening the lid just an inch or so, holding it there for 2 seconds, then opening the lid fully. This will prevent a dangerous thing called blowback...in which you'll burn your arms and maybe your face. Just burp it each time and you'll be A-OK. Again, welcome to the kamado club!
  3. Thanks for the link. I am passing it on to a buddy who's in the market for a kamado.
  4. Way to go. That looks superb!
  5. I also recently upgraded from an Akorn to a ceramic. I went with a Kamado Joe Big Joe. The Kamado Joe you saw at Lowe's, I assume it was the Classic? If so, that's an excellent grill. Also, take a look at Pit Boss. You can find them at Costco. And don't forget to take a look at Vision Grills kamado, usually found at Sam's Club. Those three grills should all be within your budget. In my opinion, I'd lean more towards the Kamado Joe Classic or the Vision. Of course, as with any purchase of anything, it boils down to what's best for you. Take your time, shop around. Build a pro/cons list and make an informed decision. The great thing about this forum is you can ask questions to the very owners of those grills and more.
  6. Oops! Thank you, I did not see that drop-down menu. I just assumed that the title of the item was correct.
  7. I tell ya, Costco has terrible typists. They spelled JoeTisserie wrong on their site and I see from the above picture, they can't spell charcoal correctly, either. No wonder I can't search for this stuff on their site.
  8. I can't find the Big JoeTisserie on Costco's site. Can anyone find it?
  9. It looks great. Thanks for taking the time to do this. Charcoal is like shaving soap, if you ever get into wetshaving that is, one can never have too much variety!
  10. Do you have the Big Joe version 1 or version 2? I have a version 2 and am having this gap issue with my JoeTisserie.
  11. Oh boy, Rockwood! My favorite brand of lump by far. Way back when, I used to get Ozark Oak, which was superb, but I think they went out of business. Since then I stick with Rockwood or Royal Oak.
  12. https://atlantagrillcompany.com/collections/kamado-joe/products/kamado-joe-big-joe™-package Put it in your shopping cart then go to checkout to see the marked down price of $1,499. Pretty good deal. Also, if you're willing to do a little legwork, and you have the 10% military discount at Lowe's, take this deal to Lowe's: have them price match it then apply the 10% military discount. That comes out to $1,350 + tax for a new Big Joe II. Not bad at all.
  13. I need to use that gasket on my Akorn Jr. Thanks for posting what you used. Nice ribs! I know they tasted great.
