  1. Awesome! What a great surprise... I'm Nigerian and love suya. Actually one of the reasons I got my KJ was to make some decent suya here in the UK. Still haven't been able to recreate the taste of the "real" deal though! I used thinly sliced minute steak for mine, and turned out pretty good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    First spin on the Monolith

    I debated long and hard about getting the Monolith before finally going for the KJ Classic II. The bird looks delicious, enjoy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. So I managed the cook yesterday with just the basic grill and no extender. Definitely worked out well enough. But I learned a few key things like how long things take to cook (I was quite unprepared) and also how to cook in the right order (eg start early with the ribs), quick things like burgers, sausages and chicken wings can go on once guests start arriving. The extender will help for the next larger cook, so planning to get that. Next I need to find a desert recipe that I can use to fully win over the wife to Kamado life!

  4. I think I also fall into this category. The best option for me will probably be the addition of a Jr when the budget allows for it. Next up is a Joetisserie and a couple of cooking surfaces. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I guess the best course of action is to see how I get on this weekend cooking for a small group (about 8 people), then at the end of the month cooking for a larger group (about 20), then I'll know if it's worth buying the extender or not. Would realistically only use it 3-4 times a year, if that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Sadly I don't think this is an option, as I purchased from an online only retailer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Sounds like an extender is the way to go. Thanks all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I literally just got my KJ Classic II yesterday and I'm already thinking I should have gone for the Big Joe... my rationale for going for the classic was cost and the fact that I would be cooking for 2 people 90% of the time. However I have a BBQ for my birthday on Saturday and now I realise a Big Joe would have been best. Does anyone have experience with the grill extender grate for multi-level cooking? Would you recommend it? Would you have to effectively cook two of the same type of food on both levels? Sorry if these are noob questions, I am totally new to BBQing. Some pics of my first cook attached too. Just wanted a quick cook to test out the new gear, and it was getting late so cooked up some chicken drumsticks, quick and easy.

    Pizza stone vs heat deflector

    Thanks all - I'll just get a pizza stone then. I'm in the UK but will be able to find something on Amazon if nowehere else. I am still curious - might still give it a try on the deflector plates while they're still new and clean just to see how it turns out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I took delivery of my KJ Classic 2 yesterday, and I am very very happy indeed. I'm totally new to BBQing but I have been learning a lot from this and some other forums out there - thank you all! I'm wondering if the heat deflector can be used as a pizza stone? Or would that not work? Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    weekend freestyle

    Looks awesome. I'm finally taking delivery of my KJ Classic 2 today (hopefully) after a very frustrating delay with the shipping company I'm thinking about getting the extender grates so I can have two tiers, but wondering how easy it is to use, in terms of flipping/rearranging things on the lower tier? Any advice would be much appreciated! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello from (slightly damp) West Yorkshire!

    Welcome to the forum. It's great to see an increase in fellow brits on here. I'm hopefully getting my JK classic before the end of the month :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh and I live about an hours drive from Hitchin so I might pay BBQland a visit this weekend! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello from the UK!

    Thanks PeteHr. I was almost ready to pull the trigger on the KJ but your comments corroborate all my research on the Monolith so far. The price is also a factor, but I see this as a 10+ yr investment so I'm prepared to pay more to make sure I get the right one for me. My major concern with the Monolith is the level of customer service / warranty. I'm considering how easy it would be to get replacement parts etc. Ps I 100% agree on the colour and build quality of the cart. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
