    Greetings from va beach

    Welcome, I am from Va Beach also out off Great Neck Rd. I am sure you will enjoy Kamado cooking.
  8. 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.
