  1. I got mine today. I have a feeling I am going to end up with both bigger ones if this cooks half as nice as it looks and feels. We also got an unexpected gift delivery from Snake River Farms today with some things that I never would have bought myself. It is a happy day for cooking at this house!
  2. This is similar for us although we have two kamados that stay out right by each other. In 2020, with no entertaining, the 24" kamado does not get much use (pretty much only ribs so I can lay them flat). A vast majority of meals are done on the 36" griddle or the 18" kamado. Without guests, the Konro was used twice this year, and it is stored inside normally. I have a 22" griddle (actually two, one with hood installed, one without, we take the one we think we will want) and now the PKGO that will dominate travel for us when that is a thing again. In the times when we found ourselve
  3. Welcome! You've come to the right place.
  4. Neat idea to have an ingredient theme. Everything looks great, but wow sign me up for that cheesecake!
  5. My preorder had an issue, but that all got fixed today. I am thrilled with this and gears are already turning. It is going to be a long winter, I am going to start by putting together a wire frame to hold the Joe Jr Stone under one of the half grates, but the big project is going to be a rotisserie ring to use my Classic sized Joetisserie. That should take me a while!
  6. Nice work! my welding sure does not look that nice.
  7. Preordered. I look forward to seeing the recipes that show up on here and contributing some.
  8. I am glad that the timing and weather worked out for this. These days, the most common use of my Performer is to light charcoal chimneys. I started the relatively complex Marabu lighting process and then went in to prep. Inside, I wrapped asparagus in Westphalian ham, halved avocados... ...butterflied chicken wing flats (this makes them into a perfect consistent width meat rectangle and they are glorious)... ...sliced the uncooked leftover portion from our Prime grade beef tenderloin roast...
  9. Whoa. I had no idea this existed. I love our Anova and I am intrigued by this idea. More than anything, I am increasingly frustrated that I have two huge built in ovens occupying a 220v circuit that are at this point useless to my family. We use the bottom oven to store kamado accessories. I am going to read some more about this and then may get in the group six pre order.
  10. Great video! Everything I see about this makes me happier that I have one on the way. My preorder had a shipping issue but I hope it is all resolved in the next few days. I agree that it would likely be rare to use the flipkit but I am super happy to have the split grates. We are not going anywhere any time soon so this is an "excited for the future" purchase for me, but I look forward to learning on it from the house!
  11. I preordered the new iteration of the PKGO and I am super excited about it (more for a post-distanced future). I plan to quickly weld up a way to get some kind of diffuser plate in there. If I can make that work the Akorn Jr will probably be largely retired from portable duty. While the Akorn Jr can run ultralong low and slow cooks, it just was not the way I used it traveling, and I think the PKGO has the potential to do everything I did do better.
  12. One of my biggest misunderstandings about the COVID-19 shutdowns was that I thought I would barbecue more. Turns out we are so busy it is my low point cooking outside, I am also dealing with problems from infrequent cooks and weather. I use my KJs year round, summer heat or winter snow. If you cook on them once a week or more and cover them when you are not using them temperature does not make a difference. That said, I had an abnormal failed cook this week, trying to get my Big Joe up to temp after a couple of weeks uncovered with a lot of strong and sideways rain. Mine was so wat
  13. Might be time to weld up some kind of diffuser holder almost at the midpoint and a grate maybe a little higher than the one that comes with it. If I can say anything in advance about this winter, it will be that we will be home and have the time!
