    I have had one for about 4 years. Only thing is you have to wipe the mating surface between the two pieces off regularly or it will stick....especially when cold. I also had to put new gasket on the top of my KJ so that when I turned the smokeware, the base wouldn't turn with the cap. I like it a lot more than my OG KJ Classic 1 daisy wheel that would constantly flip open when I opened the lid.
  2. You wont have any issue with that. The new gaskets are awesome. I have run with just one side on before and everything was fine.
  3. Yeah, years ago it happened in my neck of the woods. Something like 15 people got hit at work in one day. Our company hired a private eye to track them down. He was getting gas and noticed a vehicle matching the security cam footage following around a uhaul. He called the cops and they pulled them over. The uhaul was full of them from all over the city from what we were told. All for the metal inside.
  4. Wonder if you could fab up a Tip Top temp controller on there?
  5. From your original picture you may have room if you slide your joe to the right a bit. Cant tell the clearance on the left side. On my joe, it does go a little below the plane of the bottom gasket.
  6. With the aftermarket bags, you need to be careful not to get a roll that is too big. It makes it a pain in the butt. I use mine quite a bit to do meats. I will vac seal left overs and freeze. Then when I want to rewarm them I will use the sous vide.
  7. I want to see pics of this beast when you are done.
  8. Welcome. You are going to have a lot of fun. Check out Johns videos on running the grill. Stock up on lump charcoal, salt and pepper and have fun.
  9. It will be fine. Low and slow is the name of the game. It will probably be the best butt you ever have. What are you taking it to?
  10. I just did 3# of wings in my Napoleon tonight
  11. Found this on Ace this morning. Its the raw steel one...but it is $30 off. For BJ & BJII https://www.acehardware.com/departments/outdoor-living/grills-and-smokers/grill-parts/8003530
  12. Doesn't look to be the same thing. The roller is bigger and is ment to house all the lump/wood to specifically distribute the heat and smoke a certain way inside the dome. As The vortex will either concentrate it like a torch in the middle or keep it out of the middle. By putting the deflectors on it after you have loaded the middle with fuel would probably about snuff it out, as there isn't a gap on top to draw up through correctly.
  13. May want to try searing first and then going indirect. That bark looks good to me, but I didn't eat it. Feel free to let me know when you want me to come over and try your next attempt.
  14. Meh, you dont need the cart to start cooking as long as you have the joe. For my classics, i have one in the cart and one in a table I built. As far as moving the big joe, just get three or four guys and come up with a plan before you do the moving and make sure everyone knows how you are going to get it in the cart. When we did my neighbors big joe it wasn't' that bad. Otherwise you can always try to get something like this...https://ceramicgrillstore.com/products/chariot
  15. Not to dismiss your complaint, but trust me, it's gonna be a lot easier for you to dab that paint on then swap out a base.
  16. I saw this on marketplace. Not mine, but you don't see these come up too often... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/852179628547935/
  17. That is basically what the flame boss or ikammand is. In order to make a PID loop work, there needs to be bump tests done to figure out how the input impacts the output...in this case temperature. They have already done all the work for us.
  18. I don't have a dojo, so forgive me for my ignorance. Would it be easier to make a hook to pull out the dojo and hang it off the side to cool? You would have to remove the side shelf since those melt. (don't ask how I know) Or is the whole thing just too awkward and heavy to do so?
  19. If you cant keep it low, you are not choking off enough air to the charcoal. Make sure your gasket is making a good seal and try only light in one spot. This may make it easier to control. Once you get the grill heat soaked and steady, throw your meat on and don't adjust the vents. There will be a bit of a crash in temps due to the giant cold piece of meat you just put on there, but if the grill was rolling a steady 225 before, it will come back.
  20. I have done them on the grate with the deflectors in place no problem. Eventually I want to get a basket for my joetissarie and cook them that way.
  21. Just got a email from Dalstrong today they are having the 20 days to fathers day sale...or something like that. Had 20% off 9" carving knife. Literally just ordered the shogun x chefs knife yesterday. I will be interested to see what comes out of the sale and how I like the shogun. I am not a knife connoisseur by any means. I just want something that will last so I can pass it down to my daughter after I pass down my KJ.
  22. Take the felt off. It is just going to come off over time if you put your new gasket on top of it. Using that copper caulk like John said is a must do in my opinion. After getting it cleaned up I did one gasket at a time with the caulk and set the lid down for it to cure over night.
