    Big Joe + Cold Smoke

    I've cold smoked cheese in my Big Joe I use an Amazin Pellet Tray in the firebox, put the heat deflectors in place and then throw a tray full of ice on the X-Rack just under the grill grates Worked pretty well

    Thoughts on the upcoming "DoJoe"

    I'm gonna pass on this one Of all the things a KJ can do, pizza is the one i've had the least trouble with It feels to me like this product is the answer to a question that no one has asked Happy to be proven wrong though

    Keto Diet

    My mother is a life long weight watchers member She was even a Leader for a few years in the mid 2000's Its really frustrating having a conversation about the ketogenic diet with her as it essentially flies in the face of everything shes ever thought about weight loss When she tries to forward me an article about how bad what i'm doing is for my body i just send her the last weigh in i did and a copy of my last medical and blood work Everything is good blood wise, my weight has dropped considerably, i'm not snoring anymore and i dont get "hangry" anymore. I dont get the clarity of mind and boundless energy some people on the keto diet talk about, but i didnt get the keto flu either, so i'm happy. Its not a diet i recomend to everyone i meet, but it has worked for me

    Keto Diet

    I eat more vegetables now than i ever have I just stay away from root and startchy veg Lots of leafy greens, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage I'm down 26kg (50 lbs?) since March on a semi keto (probably more low carb) diet My diet is way more diverse now than it ever was I dont count my macros regaurly, i just ensure my overall carb intake is around 20grams per day Its been super easy and effective for me and is not somthing i dread living with. I've just modified my eating habits and stay away from the obvious pit falls like excessive sugar and processed carbs/bad fats. I feel like the diet is sustainable long term and thanks to my general lack of sweet tooth, i havent found myself hanging out for a cheat day.

    Keto Diet

    On this topic Has anyone managed to find a decent Keto friendly BBQ sauce recipie? I've had a real hankering for ribs of late but all the sauces is can either buy or make myself are very sugar heavy

    Change in Costco road show deal

    Cant say i'm shocked by this Its insane what people will do to get free stuff That having been said, the Costco roadshow wasnt great for the business of independant retailers Almost everyone who posts here about possibily picking up a KJ mention they hope to get the Demo Deal and that must take a lot of business away from the smaller independants

    Converting Joe Classic I to Classic II

    Nope The Series 2 hinge assembly has to be screwed into the ceramics at the factory KJ do have a new hinge design for the Series 1 as they old style hinge has been discontinued and they needed somthing for warrenty replacmenets and i dont think theyre selling it as a spare part You'd be better off selling you Series 1 and putting those funds towards a new Series 2, if the new upgrades are important to you

    Heat Deflectors Leaking?

    Mine do the same thing I've actually over cooked the bottom of briskets due to gaps in the deflectors Probably wouldnt be an issue if youre cooking at 225f and wrap but i tend to cook a little hotter and let mine go naked, so the bottom burns after an 12 hour exposure I've since corrected the problem by running a water pan on the accessory rack and its fine now

    Kick Ash Basket or Kamado Joe Basket

    This could be a dumb question, but, wouldnt cutting the handles of your KJ basket void its warrenty? I know there probably isnt much that could go wrong with it but if you get 10months into its use and a weld cracks or it warps, you'd not be covered

    Kick Ash Basket or Kamado Joe Basket

    How old are your KABs? I've had mine up to searing temps almost weekly since purchasing it over a year ago and its still fine

    Kamado Joe Charcoal Baskets

    If im cooking Caveman style steaks (put the steak directly on the coals) i put the X-Rack in the low position and put the ash basket in that It brings the egde of the basket up to just below the gasket line in the KJ Works pretty well
