  1. I dont mean to hijack the thread but do you use the basket without the cast iron grate?
  2. I didn't notice and think I would've. Have removed and put back in a couple of times.
  3. 5 bag limit...so I guess you'll have to make two trips...or bring a friend
  4. One day only sale at Home Depot...I don't know how good it is but at that price I'm sure it's good enough.
  5. replacement felt You can get some for as cheap as $2.50 ($3.00 total with shipping). One will cover the bottom intake and two will cover bottom intake and top chimney. I tried adding it to the bottom intake but it was t o tight of a fit. Couldn't slide it open or close with the felt on it. Works great around the top chimney.
  6. Picked one up a couple of months ago from Costco. Has been great for me and have been using it twice a week. My first kamado style grill and I love it.
  7. I do my baby backs for 4 hours - if I add sauce it will be the last 30 mins so about 3.5 hours. My last cook settled a little hotter than normal at about 270 and I probably should've taken them off at 3.5 hours. No wrapping or anything. Put the rub on the night before and wrap in saran wrap in the fridge. Once I get it going with the meat on I really don't touch it or open it up. Monitor the temp is about it.
  8. I throw in some wood chunks, not chips and not soaked, as I bring up to temp. So I fill with lump and light a square in one spot. Wait about 5-10 mins then throw in some wood chunks and place my deflector and grate and bring up to temp. Place the ribs and let it cook. I suppose that I could throw some wood on once up to temp. Like the previous poster stated - there isn't one way to do this IMO. Some of the fun is in figuring out what works best for you.
  9. I am hoping for that and getting a price match/credit...
  10. I Agree...that would not be fun. I have been using mine a few times a week since purchasing a couple of months ago. Hope I never have to deal with that but if I did I would be upset about having to bring that heavy grill back to Costco and then pick up a new one. Not my idea of a fun afternoon. Its simply just a return and exchange. If there was a road show at my local Costco Id most likely exchange it at that time for a KJ. But so far it has been great for me.
  11. How long did you let the butt marinate with the rub on it - I wonder if you would notice it more the longer it sits prior to cooking...
  12. I was going to say...if possible take a nut and cap with you to Home Depot or Acehardware and match it up.
  13. See if there is a local KJ Roadshow and return and buy a KJ...
  14. home ownership...if it wasn't for bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all. Our dryer goes out around the same time every year...thankfully we purchased the extended warranty for it so all repairs have been free. Only issue is dealing with the repair company that takes 2 weeks to get the new part and repair it every time. Once the kids/family are playing in the pool during the heat...all will be forgotten
  15. When you season it are you making sure the oven is hot enough? If washed with water you should heat to dry...then wipe down with oil and heat it hot enough so the oil smokes... I should say that's my typical method. I'm sure a lot of people have a few different methods.
