  1. That is a monster ash tray! Very nice. Welcome to the forum, we're happy you joined us. Happy grilling!
  2. We're glad you joined us. You'll have a great time with your KJ Classic II. Happy grilling!
  3. Got it. Thanks a lot. I hope my racks turn out as nice as yours.
  4. Fantastic! That looks really great. But I'd recommend not to do vertical video anymore, makes it hard to see what's going on during playback. Man, those chickens look good. It's nice to see the Akorn getting some love.
  5. This is timely. I just purchased two racks of lamb yesterday. Yours look fantastic!! What internal temp did you get them to before searing them?
  6. I've had good luck with my Maverick ET-732 over the years. I know there are newer models out there and lots of other competitors. But this remote thermometer has treated me very well.
  7. Welcome! We're glad to have you.
  8. Thanks. Now, where to hang that super hot DoJoe to cool? Ha!
  9. Ouch, that's a sad story about your Infinity Dome kamado. Good on you for getting a replacement kamado. I hope it turns out to be the perfect kamado for you. We're glad you joined us!
  10. You have come to the right place to learn the ins and outs of your new kamado. Welcome to the forum!
  11. We're glad you decided to join us. Welcome!
  12. Let me know what KJ says about dousing a DoJoe fire. I'm very interested. Haha, well, I am the most unsporty guy in the known universe, but I do like my red Big Joe. One of the ceramic manufacturers does have a blue model. I can't remember who...Louisiana Grills, maybe?

    First fire

    Fill 'er up! When cooking with a kamado you really don't need to measure the lump you think you'll use. Just fill it up. Whatever is leftover at the end of the cook can be used next time.
  14. Hello fellow St. Louisan. Thank you for the review. I also have the Big Joe DoJoe, but haven't used it yet. You talked about something I was concerned about...how to snuff out the fire. Looks like it's just not possible. If that fire is going there's no way to safely pull out the DoJoe and its components. Too hot!
  15. Pevely, eh? You're just a zip down the road from me. Welcome to the forum! Newbie mistake to avoid: opening your vents all the way and then walking away for several minutes. It will ramp up the temps so fast! Enjoy your new Akorn. It's an excellent grill.
  16. Holy cow. That looks great. I find grilled Brussels Sprouts to be the superior way to prepare them. So good.
  17. Welcome, welcome! I had no heard of your grill before so I looked it up. Looks pretty nice. I am sure it'll work out well for you. Happy grilling.
  18. Welcome to the forum. You're off to an excellent start. Spare ribs are my absolute favorite...send 'em on over! Happy grilling.
  19. I understand you. I also had to relearn temp control when I went from my Char-Griller Akorn to a Big Joe II. It takes a little time (and some major errors!), but eventually you'll master it. I'm sure the smell of your smoke draws in the neighbors. All my neighbors happen to be big-time barbecuers, so they don't come flocking to my house. Haha!
  20. Fantastic! Yep, you are ready to do anything on that grill now. Good move.
  21. Welcome! How are you liking the Pit Boss?
  22. Good lookin' first cooks! Keep it up.
  23. Welcome, welcome! I started out on the Akorn as well. It's a great grill, just never open both vents fully and walk away. The temp will ramp up faster than you can imagine. Cowboy has its fans as well as its detractors. I fall into the latter camp. Don't be afraid to try out other charcoal. Lately I have been using Royal Oak XL Cut from Walmart and have had real good results with it. Did you also order a Smokin' Stone for your Akorn? You'll need it to do low & slow cooks.
  24. Beef ribs, yum! Good luck with them and welcome to the forum.
  25. Wow, that's quite an upgrade from the Joe Jr. to Big Joe. Nice! Welcome to the forum and happy grilling.
