  1. That cap finished my kamado update project for now. I posted a different thread with some pics if you guys are interested:
  2. Imperial Kamado Project

    Not sure if this is the right place but I've been working on fixing up a Kamado that was has been passed down through my family for years. I love cooking with it but it needed some TLC. Not done yet but I'm really happy with how it's turned out so far and I wanted to share. Here are the before and after pics (sorry, before pic isn't that great): I tried to match the orange that remained around the edges of the top/bottom: Let me know what you think! Any recommendations would be great. Looking to eventually replace/fix up the hinges and draft door. They're fully functional but a little beat up.
  3. Thanks everyone. I ended up doubling up the gasket. It feels very snug so I think it may work... we'll see once I get a chance to fire it up.
  4. Well, Smokeware advised that I double wrap the gasket. Is it OK to do that? seems like it wouldn't work very well but I could be wrong. Any thoughts?
  5. Thanks for the help! I thought I'd get email notifications when someone replied and assumed nobody posted. I wish I would have checked back before pulling the trigger. I spoke with someone at Smokeware and the dimensions they gave were off. Keeper's pic is exactly right- the diameter is 5.5" which is larger than I was told. The top of my Kamado is off in this picture because I was working on it but the picture shows the gap between the Nomex (it's reversed and taped together, wanted to get a feel for the space before using the tape) and the chimney cap. The gasket is .25", do they make thicker stuff? Any ideas on how (or if) this can be fixed? Thanks again!
  6. Hello! Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I have an Imperial Kamado that has been passed down through my family. I'm in the process of painting and replacing some parts on it. I do not have a chimney cap for it... I've been using aluminum foil and a brick (pretty fancy, right?) during cooks to restrict flow. I really like the look/functionality of the Smokeware SS cap but I can't find any information that would help me to determine if it would fit my Kamado. I've tried their phone number multiple times but can't get a callback. So I guess my question boils down to this: Has anyone used the Smokeware SS with an Imperial Kamado? does it fit? Did you get the BGE or Kamado Joe version? was the adapter they sell necessary? If not, can someone help me with the dimensions for BGE med/lg/xl chimney caps? What are the height and diameter? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
