  1. New grill for my kJC

    That is rather classy.
  2. Joe JR efficient for my goals?

    Started out with a Pit Boss, it developed a crack and Costco had no more and couldn't tell me when they would get anymore in. Took it back to Costco and ordered a JR and BJ from Ace hardware on sale and have been happy ever since. I use the JR for 98% of my cooks because it's just the 2 of us but, I have used the BJ for several cooks that were too large for the JR. Just can't fit a 20# turkey in a JR.
  3. Cold weather cooking

    Lots of people on here are in New England area and nobody has great concerns for the cold temps and their Kamado's. In fact if you get on Kamado Joe FB page, not cooking in the freezing temperatures is next to blasphemy and you will be unmercifully chastised for even bringing up the subject.
  4. Joe JR efficient for my goals?

    FYI Ace hardware has a 15% sale goin on right now.
  5. Which pizza stone do you use?

    Eventually I will have to get a soapstone but for now I have an old Pampered Chef stone my wife bought years ago. Wrap it in foil and swap it out each cook. Until I break it, it'll do.
  6. Pork Ribs

    There are going to be as many opinions about which is best as there are on how to cook them. I prefer BBR myself. But I also prefer them on the pellet pooper (don't hate me because I'm beautiful). I put them on at 165 for about 3 hours then boost them to 275 until done, usually about another 2-3 hours. I like them NOT fall off the bone but with just a little tug. I don't wrap or sauce them, just rub. Good luck.
  7. Extra Spit Rod for Joetisserie

    https://www.onegrill.com/rotisserie_spit_rod_bushing_1_2_inch_fit_p/4pb02.htm Look under bushings. Just gotta find the right inside dimensions.
  8. Cooking in 6 degrees

    Don't go on Kamado Joe's FB page and say that. For some reason several think it blasphemy to not go out in -25 degrees and start your grill. They will ride you like a $2 hooker.
  9. Sous Vide on sale

    Sorta like shopping at Costco.......... know your prices.
  10. Cooking in 6 degrees

    I had a heck of a time getting my BJ up to speed last night. Think it was because I just opened up a brand new bag of "big lump" and had very few, if any small pieces to fill in the gaps. Lesson learned. And the pieces are really huge.
  11. 1st Kamado - damaged gasket on tower?

    And yes, the control tower gets pretty hot. Welding gloves.
  12. Home Depot

    I wish more retailers would carry KJ. Kitchen Kaboodle also dabbles in it but, like the others only carry a few select items.
  13. Bomb Cyclone

    Must be millennial speak for blizzard?
  14. Made some Charcoal

    Yep, mines a barrel in a barrel and the quantity is much smaller. I only use it occasionally to supplement store bought.
  15. Made some Charcoal

    Have never seen this type of setup before. Please explain the discharge pipe and how do you know when the wood is charcoal? Are there holes in the bottom of the barrel?
