    Here's my version of a Carne Asada Recipe:

    1 large Orange Juiced plus 1/2 tsp zest
    1/2 cup EVOO

    1 tsp Black pepper
    1 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
    2 TBS white vinegar
    1 cup good Mexican beer- Negra Modelo, Bohemia, Dos Equis Ambar
     
    Blend well, pour over steak and place in fidge between 2-6hrs, I do 4hrs take out of fidge  and pat dry with paper towels and lightly season with salt and pepper

    Actually, food tastes best when cooked on a RED cooker, especially a charcoal powered Weber.  I thought everyone here knew that

    Garvinque reacted to keeperovdeflame in New Egger looking for some help   
    Sorry to hear about your Uncle's health, I will pray for him and your Aunt, as well.  To start with I would open the boxes and check to see what is actually inside, for transport you can always tape them back up. The new Egg hinge and band assembly comes in it's own box. But, it could be that  possibly a separate box is packed inside either the dome or kettle base box. If you get to the lake and don't have all the parts, you will find yourself unable to accomplish the assembly.  From your list it looks like you are missing the hinge and band assembly. The handle and assembly generally comes with the bands. so it sounds like you are missing that as well. Sounds like you are also missing side tables and a bottom vent and screen assembly. You also seem to be missing a daisy wheel vent. You can use the SmokeWare, but I like to use the daisy wheel when the weathers good.   Anything you need I would suggest you purchase it directly from BGE. Everything you purchase from them will carry their warranty on that particular part with you as the original owner. As far as a gasket goes, again, I would go with the BGE high heat gasket, I have been cooking on one for almost 4 years including a host of pizza cooks and it is still up and cooking. It also sounds like you need a main grate and a diffuser. I have both an AR with a spider, stone and multiple grates, and a place setter as well. I pretty much never use the plate setter unless I am feeling nostalgic  and want to  go back to my BGE roots. IMO, the AR and attachments are the best grate configuration for a large Egg. The KJ D& C will fit, but the KJ classic is shorter in dome tapper and has less head room than a large BGE. Therefore, the D&C will not take advantage of all the headroom you have to work with. The AR, however, is specifically designed to fit in a BGE and take advantage of all the room available. With the AR spider, and stone, I would also purchase a 13 x 17"  brisket / ribs grate and stone. very useful for big cuts. I would also get an extender to go even higher into the dome, with a 14" pizza stone. I have all that along with duplicate 16" grill grates. If you don't want to spend that much just get the spider, a stone, and a main grate. However I would like to have at least two stones one to use as a deflector and one to use as a pizza stone. I use a 1/2 stone on the spider a lot, especially for steaks, tri tip, and the like. With a 1/2 stone you can make a two heat zone set up.  In my experience all the bolts and nuts needed come with the hinge and band assembly. Be careful with the rolling nest, I have seen a number of guys loose their eggs when it tipped in transport. I use a compact metal table made by a company called Sol'e, it is pricey at about $500, but it won't tip or drop my egg. Best of luck, with all this. and grace and peace to you,  your uncle, and aunt. Happy Cooking.

    It is not listed in the accessories for KJ. I doubt one wears out or breaks very often. It might help to call KJ and see it you could order one as a special order. Of course you always could go for one of the custom grate makers that have been listed from time to time. Going that route might cost as much as the junior.

    I too wanted that grate but getting one seems to be impossible. I was hoping that a KJ owner would know how to get one but no one answered that question in a previous post!

    I had company last night.  I used my custom upper rack which of course would not work without the C/I grate so it comes in handy but I like the idea of a stainless one too.  Can never have enough accessories.

    A fire going out is very unusual.  Did you diagnose the problem?  Blocked fire grate?  Not enough lump?  Fire not very well established?  What happened?  Before you spend money you don't need to spend, let's get this sorted out and possibly find another alternative.
