    Pellet Grill Questions

    I think you are still within budget with a Blaz'n Grand Slam and just on the outer fringe of their Grid Iron. Made in the USA if thats a driver.

    Flame Boss 200

    You wont have any problems. Like I said in the packaging multiple adapters are enclosed (3). Just pop it in between the grooves hang your fan in the adapter and close the damper. It SHOULD ride over the top of the adapter and damper should close just about to the point of the fan.

    To be truthful I have not seen a Pit Boss up close but I dont see how it could be much different than my cookers. The adapters just pops into the grooves of your sliding damper.

    No it does not replace it. FB will provide you with multiple grill adapters in the packaging of your FB. You will use that adapter in conjunction with your sliding damper door. You will hang your fan from the FB adaptor. You sliding damper will be snugged up against and over the FB adapter. No on pizza or sear. You would not need to use it for that. For both of those type cooks open lower damper and upper daisy wheel and let it rip. No need for the blower. BTW that FB adapter is removable after each cook which then allows you to close damper door to help snuff out fire.

    I think you will like the FB 200. I have had one for 3+ years. Works great, easy set up and support is top notch. Since I have bought it they now have IOS and Android phone apps. Have yet to play with those.

    Help in CT, 1970 and unopened

    Could be a Sakura or a Kikuya. I have a mid 70's Kikuya. On the front in vicinity of handle you may see a Kikuya sticker. If I remember correctly direction for use were packed inside the cooker.
  11. Welcome, I am in Va Beach like yourself and am afflicted with the same grill/smoker sickness. Must be the salt air.

    Greetings from va beach

    Welcome, I am from Va Beach also out off Great Neck Rd. I am sure you will enjoy Kamado cooking.
  13. I have a Digiq and a Flameboss 200. Both good units. Customer service goes to FB. My FB was DOA on arrival. Called them and a new one was inbound that day. New one upon arrival took 7 minutes to set up and connected to Wifi. Bottom line I would not hesitate to buy either unit.

    5 Amazing Portable Wood Burning Stoves

    Back in my bicycle touring days I had something like the Firebox Stove Nr4 in the video. It worked like a champ. I don't have it anymore. In 04 I bought a portable wood burning grill called a Woodflame Delecto and lug it along in the motorhome along with a Holland Companion. The Woodflame gets piping hot but is a bit of a pain to clean. Runs either on batteries or ac power.

    Hello from Virginia

    Thank-you for acceptance into the group. Have been cooking with a Kamado (Kikuya Hibatchi Pot) since 1977 which I bought while stationed in Japan. Since that time I have added 2 LBGE's and a Primo Oval XL. I will go ahead and take the walk of shame, and admit I have a couple of gassers and charcoal grills hanging around. Even though I have been cooking on a Kamado for quite a while this old dog is not adverse to taking aboard the numerous tips and techniques that the fine cooks on this forum pass along.
