  1. I would say it would definitely be safe to have at least one friend to help.. It's heavy. Putting it back on can be a bit of a challenge, too.
  2. Yea, I have an original bbq guru and I love it. What do you have the draft door taped up with? I need something to keep the seal tight. @marauders
  3. I guess I will have to remove all the tiles, and not just the loose ones, eh? BTW, what do you lube the draft door shafts with? When that burner gets lodged in there, it's a mofo to remove!
  4. While I have mine down rebuilding the firebox, I'm going to probably give the interior a skim coat with the polymer mortar. I don't know if it will help, but I don't reckon it would hurt. @maraudersOn the dome, did you start at the top, near the chimney, or around the base just above the flair?
  5. I called John back in November, asking about the stuff he sent you. He seems to have lost a bit of confidence in it. His reasoning as to why he said it doesn't seem to be a permanent fix, is that the cement doesn't seem to adhere to the dirty walls. So, take that for what it's worth. I've been putting polymer fortified mortar on the outside, and it seems to be withstanding much better than the cement did. As a matter of fact, I have to rebuild my firebox again. The repair done with fiberglass and cement didn't hold up. I am going to try to wire the circumference and mud it. BTW, I am more and more starting to admire your tile job. I'm trying to do the tiles on the lid, and it's giving me fits trying to line them up right.
  6. Ok, I'll give him a call and see if he can provide some insight. Thanks @marauders
  7. So, the refractory cement that I used on the interior of the kettle has started to flake off. I haven't had any blazes in the kettle, so this is a bit surprising. It was the Do-All plus refractory cement. Any recommendations on what to come back with?
  8. Yep, I started another thread on this group about it. It's been a bit dormant recently, been busy... Hope I can get back to restoring it soon.
  9. Ok, I "made" a video on crack repair on my K7. It is literally the first video I have made in a DIY fashion, so it may not be up to snuff. But, if y'all wouldn't mind, take a peek and let me know what you think? I'm not posting it as an expert, obviously...just figured that K7 videos may be something needed on Youtube, as they are kinda few and far between. Kamado K7 restoration - Dome Crack Repair
  10. @Addertooth Did you ever post any finish photos of your resto?
  11. Ok I don't have the same basket. My handles are shorter and more angled outward than that.
  12. Here is what I do have. I assume it is a pizza stone. @K_sqrd @CeramicChef
  13. I'm guessing locating a diffuser for these things is on the side of impossible. Maybe I can see if galaxy has something that would work. The diffuser may have been lost in all of the moves.
  14. @Addertooth @marauders @CeramicChef I've got a pizza stone, does that also act as a diffuser on this model? If so, how is it arranged? Is there a special rack for it? I have a few grill grates, but no hanger.
