  1. Warped Metal Firebox Ring

    Not going to happen, its too severe. Also, it was all put together and then it warped so if it didnt keep it from becoming warped and popping off it is not going to stay in place with the wedges.
  2. Warped Metal Firebox Ring

    The only update I have so far is that things are pretty much the same as they were. They said they were sending me a ring out and I got the shipping label back on August 7, but nothing has moved. I contacted them yesterday and they apologized and said it is supposed to get shipped this week. So we will see how it goes. I have continued to cook but my firebox pieces are not contained and is basically just laying in the base with pieces on the sides wherever they want to be.
  3. Timberline Ribs

    Im speechless.
  4. Warped Metal Firebox Ring

    Yes both of those were in place.
  5. Warped Metal Firebox Ring

    They are sending me another one. Hopefully it was a bad batch of rings or something and this doesn't persist.
  6. Warped Metal Firebox Ring

    It has been a week or two since I have used my Big Joe and went to fire it up yesterday and found my firebox ring was warped pretty bad. How does this even happen? This Big Joe has 10 cooks on it if it's lucky and none have even been high temp pizza cooks. I have a case created and Im sure I will be taken care of but thought it was interesting.
  7. Enamel Finish

    It is normal so there is nothing to be done about it and it doesnt hurt anything. I think kamado companies should have a sticker or something on them when you buy and get them that explain this. I see this brought up a lot and I will admit when I was new to these types of kamados i didnt know myself and had to look it up.
  8. Kamado Joe Big Joe (NOT 2017)

    This has been sold. Thank you.
  9. Acadia National Park?

    My wife and I stayed in Gouldsboro for two weeks last summer. It is by Winter Harbor which is near Bar Harbor. If you like hiking then Cadillac Mtn. will be fun. There will be people everywhere this time of the year but still worth it. Also, if you take the more difficult trail up you will likely not see very many people because most drive up or take the easy trail on the other side. My wife and I highly recommend anyone going there to visit the portion of Acadia on the Schoodic Peninsula. We could of spent everyday there. It has a beautiful view of the ocean and pretty much miles of rocky coastline to hike where you can get away from everyone, even though most people stay right around where the parking lot is. My wife and I loved sitting in places with the waves crashing right by us and we saw several seals with one coming pretty close to check us out. We didnt really eat out a lot but cooked our own meals at the cabin. It is nice to go to wharfs and get some lobsters and clams that they brought in that day...

    It is, pm has been replied to.
  11. Flameboss Troubleshooting?

    Has yours always had issues? I had 3 cooks on mine that went flawlessly but then mine started acting up.
  12. Flameboss Troubleshooting?

    I called FB today. They were very helpful and we are going to try replacing the pit probe first because it is acting weird and then we will go from there. I will update on everything.
  13. Kamado Joe Big Joe (NOT 2017)

    To further clarify, this come with divide and conquer system, firebox and ring, heat deflectors, ash tray and pan, tools, cart, side tables. Everything you get when you purchase one new.
  14. Flameboss Troubleshooting?

    Yeah yesterday when i was doing the chicken my temp reading was going nuts. It said low one second and then jumped way up and back down again. It was crazy.
  15. I am selling a Kamado Joe Big Joe, not the 2017 model. It will come with everything you get when you buy new. The base only has 2 cooks on it as it was a replacement base. The firebox has two cracks as you can see in the pictures. I have had several cooks with it like this and I have taken it out and in several times and it has stayed together. It has a chip in the paint that is purely cosmetic and it has some paint peeling off the daisy wheel. Functionality of everything is fine. I will take $500 for everything. Pick-up only. I live in the Gallipolis and Rio Grande, Ohio area. This is in Southeastern Ohio, about an hour from Athens and Chillicothe.
