  1. Not sure this will make it thru have pretty sketchy internet at present location. I think the primo hinge is fine no problems with it. Sounds like you have an overbite/underbite situation which is correctible. By chance when standing in front of the handle what side are band bolts on? I ask this because a buddy of mine drove himself bananas trying to fix his issue like yourself. We were lounging around his pool and I noticed his band bolts were on the right side of grill when facing it. My XL's bolts are on left side when facing it. Quick call to Primo to verify bolts should be on the left when facing the grill. We flipped the bands and his lid issue disappeared. Who would have "thunk it". BTW his grill was brand new when bought and delivered assembled. On the Primo University pages they have a write up on correction of overbite/underbite situations. I hope you get JR fixed and up and running.
  2. Looks fantastic. My wife is Colombian and she puts a Colombian spin on this dish. One of my faves. We have been to one of his restaurants in Chicago. Was not bad. Still find it hard to believe Rick and Skip are brothers.
  3. Food looks great...glad someone is getting some sun. Its been a rare commodity here the last 3 days and the future doesn't look promising until this upcoming Friday for a sighting. Do you have any names for the 3 Amigos (cookers) I see in your pic?
  4. I know I could roll in hot on that and do some serious damage to that pie.
  5. For sure was not a banner day in Va Beach. Heart and prayers go out to the families and a huge BZ to the first responder. "Da Twins" aka Danny & Arnold or Vincent and Julius look great basking in their pre cook glory.
  6. Hopefully everything went off without a glitch last night with the butts and chickens cooperate as well. Additionally hope your weather is better in your locale than here in Va Beach. Been pouring here since around midnight.
  7. On the subject of the "extended grids" I have been wanting to replace these on my XL. Normal price each runs between $54 and $62 depending on source. Stumbled upon this today and pulled the trigger https://www.amazon.com/soldbbq-Extended-Cooking-Replacement-Primo/dp/B0782CZ725
  8. I think that 4 of a kind, and pair of spatchcocked chickens you are preparing is going is going to make for one happy special "full house" at the party. Looking forward to finished product pictures.
  9. Congrats on the new cooker. BTW your Mrs. is a keeper.
  10. Welcome and congrats on your purchase.
  11. Welcome. Indeed there are some awesome folks here. Before you know it you will be a Kamado owner.
  12. Congrats on your new grill. I understand your thoughts and space limitations and possibility of selling your kamado. I would wait a bit too see if you like the pellet life. I've kept my kamado's even though I have a pellet grill. Have you been over to "Get Your Grill On" on Virginia Beach Blvd? Its just west of Restaurant Depot next to Cap City. Last time I was in their he had a large selection of pellets. There is also a place in P-town that sells traegers so I am sure they sell their pellets.
  13. Nice looking cook KK. Your roasted veggies layed out on the strip steak in that one picture looks awesome. If you could box that up in a Chinese take-out container and airlift that to me I would gladly sample it. My wife is from South America and she makes Matambre quite frequently which looks very much like your cook but uses Flank Steak or Skirt steak mostly. However every now and then Flap Meat (NAMP 185A) shows up around here. Cheaper than either Flank or Skirt steak and I think tastes better. Plus its cut to the proper thickness requiring no knife skills. Most folks say cook flap meat super hot and fast...I have kind of debunked that with two of the grills I have in my herd grilling it at 350 degrees. I have cooked it both ways with success and the meat tastes different each way. Once again nice looking cook. BTW you have pretty darn good camera skills also.
  14. That is a fine looking dish. Nice touch on the pine nuts. My wife fools around with zukes and eggplant quite a bit. She does one variation with both of those items that is a play on a pizza. Really good. I will have her prepare this. Thanks for the post.
  15. Welcome aboard. Can and will not disagree with your logic on your Kamado purchase.
