    Nashville-ish Hot Chicken Sandwich

    That's a great looking cook. I'm sure it was fantastic. Maybe it's just me but when looking at the pictures the first time I thought it was peanut butter instead of the chipotle mayo which I am sure is great but something about the thought of peanut butter with all of that seems like something I need to try I wouldn't worry too much about oil it the dutch oven. If it did catch on fire you could either close the vents on the kamado or else close the lid on the dutch oven to snuff out the fire. It's safer in a kamado than in a gas grill or something not air tight. I would be however extra careful about opening the lid on the kamado with the oil in there because any flash over would be potentially more dangerous but of course we should always be careful opening kamados. Happy cooking and thanks for sharing

    Looking for Feedback: Adjustable Rig for KJ Classic

    I'd prefer to spend money on this setup than a grill extender.

    iKamand v2

    They definitely changed the back side of the unit. There is a door or flap where there used to be just a fan. I wonder if they switched over to a blower instead of a fan. Can anyone link to a list of changes?

    The curvature on that Big Joe vent seems almost perfect. Nice Again, great project. Sometimes it's not about how much it costs you or whether you could buy something for less. Sometimes it's the satisfaction of doing it yourself that matters.

    Where did you buy your Kamado Joe Grill?

    Costco. A local dealer at the time was charging full price for the older model. I wanted the newer model. We have a new local dealer now and I have bought accessories through them and will continue to do so.

    He was set up!?

    Oh, was that your lady? I didn't even know.
  10. That's a great graph, especially for a first cook.
  11. I bought 2 bags last week. I just got a chance to try it tonight. I grilled some hamburgers over direct heat. The briquettes started easy. They burned clean with good smoke. I'll get more bags if they are still available.
  12. Congrats. I knew you could do it It is a great project and the best overall temperature controller in my opinion

  15. I think the Kamado Joe Ikomand (or however it is spelled) is designed to be able to compile data from thousands of cooks and give better estimates over time but like was said in the post above, every cook is different because every piece of meat is different.
