  1. It was sold out a day after I posted it. It showed up in 2 days also. I was always on the fence when I saw it for $299, but for $249 I couldn't pass it up. I've only had it about a month and it's been my go-to for quick cooks like burgers. Even did a whole Costco flank steak on it a few nights ago. Saves a lot of charcoal also.
  2. Yeah, I've never seen it this low before. It is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. Hopefully it shows up in one piece!
  3. Thanks. I've heard of these, but they're sold out everywhere...both Blue Fire's site and Amazon, so I guess I'll be waiting a bit.
  4. I'm in the market for a set of high-heat gloves for removing grates / deflectors during a cook when necessary. I'm placing an order with BBQ Guru today for a fan adapter and came across these: https://bbqguru.com/storenav/Index?categoryId=&&productId=492 Thoughts or alternative recommendations? Thanks in advance!
  5. Surprised nobody else jumped on this? Was this not a good deal?
  6. Was just browsing last night and stumbled across this. I've wanted a Joe Jr. for a while to go with my Classic II and couldn't pass it up at this price. I was skeptical, so I placed the order at 9am today and it's already shipped so it's legit! https://www.bjs.com/product/kamado-joe-jr-135-charcoal-grill---blaze-red/3000000000002592761 You don't even have to be a member. There's an option to get a free one-day shopping pass which is what I did, so no extra costs. I imagine these will sell out quickly at this price.
  7. So my New Year’s Eve guests would like prime rib and I’ve never done one on my KJ. I’m going to get the meat tomorrow and I’ve had great luck at Costco for ribs and pork shoulder. Does anybody have any recommendations for a prime rib at Costco? I think they have a few different options. What size for 6 people? I love leftovers so it can be bigger than what I need. Any suggestions are appreciated!
  8. Raised my temp to 300 and wrapped. Up to 157° internal temp so hopefully it will start moving along now.
  9. When it starts going up will it rise quickly? My wife is starting to get annoyed that dinner is going to be late.
  10. I've had a Boston Butt on my KJ Classic II since 8am. It's about 6.5 lbs. Grill is at 225ºF and has been there most of the day. Everything was progressing nicely until I hit about 145. It's only gone up 3ºF in the past 2 and a half hours. I was going to wrap it in foil when it hit 160 and put it back on until 195º as I typically do, but not sure why the temp isn't going up. I've checked it in several spots and it's consistent. Any advice?
  11. Do I wait until my firestarter burns down completely before I close the dome and start the fan?
  12. So I broke down and ordered the Fireboard and Pit Viper fan. Got the Pit Viper today and the Fireboard and drive cable arrive tomorrow. Planning on cooking ribs on Saturday to test it out. Just a quick question. With the Fireboard controlling the fan, how far open should the top vent be on my KJ Classic II? I’m figuring 1/4 of the way open or less and the fan will do the rest. Thoughts?
  13. I wound up getting it at the Quakertown Lowe’s since it was closer to my office. Got 2 bags!!
  14. Which Lowes’s in the area has KJ charcoal? We don’t even have a dealer in the Lehigh Valley at all anymore.
