  1. Boardman is a nice place, we lived over in Hubbard. My wife did pre-med at YSU and ended up doing her 5 year surgical residency at St. Elizabeths.
  2. I dont see an offer? I lived in Youngstown (If you are meaning Ohio) for 5 years.
  3. Since I have sold my last Kamado I am now selling my Flameboss 300 as well. This has only been used a handful of times. It will come with 2 Y-cables and 3 meat probes so you will be all $260 shipped for everything.
  4. Ribs are one thing i don’t measure IT temp. I cook them til they have a good bend when picked up from the middle.
  5. I pretty much use my Lodge 10" for everything.
  6. My wife and I both may have been affected according to that check.
  7. That's good that you and others have had a good experience. But, there have been many that haven't had a stellar experience including myself. My experience arguably makes the firebox issue posted above look like childs play and I have been left without a functioning grill before because of it. I have had mine now for roughly a year and have had 5 warranty claims in which two became quite the ordeal and we are talking about crucial components. In the end it was taking care of but should of never reached the level it did. I like my Big Joe and it is functioning fine (for now) but I cant recommend them anymore. Im glad for those that have had no issues but some of us havent been as fortunate. From what I am noticing their customer service is hit or miss as of lately.
  8. My experience with the spacing echos what others have said. I have some gaps, but not that much. I had an issue with my metal ring that goes on top warping though. Personally, I don't have a problem with the design per she but I am not impressed with KJ's take on it if that makes sense.
  9. I am selling another Kamado Big Joe but this one comes with a few things. Please read the post for everything that is included because I did not take pictures of everything, just the Big Joe. This Big Joe is not the 2017 version but it does have the new style firebox. No chips or cracks with the Big Joe and hasn't been used very many times. It will come with everything you get when you buy it new; tools, heat deflectors, divide and conquer, etc. PLUS: Kamado Joe Pizza stone for Big Joe Kick Ash Basket Kick Ash Basket Divider Covermates Cover I live in the Rio Grande/ Gallipolis area of southeastern Ohio. About 2 hours from Columbus and 2 hours from Cincinnati. I will deliver or meet up to 2 hours away, possibly 3 hours but the cost will change based off of my gas. I will take $800 for everything.
  10. It looks like the new ring is on the truck for delivery today.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Yes both of those were in place.
  14. They are sending me another one. Hopefully it was a bad batch of rings or something and this doesn't persist.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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...
