  2. Hello all and good afternoon. I have had an awesome week using my Joe Jr. And am looking for some opinions on temperatures for cooking a brisket. If anyone has any advice on this please let me know :-)
  3. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    Hi and thanks again for the helpful info. My girlfriend ordered me the Kamado Joe jr and it is being shipped. I guess I should not open my Akorn jr. Just yet and take it back to Wal Mart. I am very excited !111

  6. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    Hey all and good morning. I saw today that Home Depot has the Pit Boss K22 on sale for $471.00 is this something that would be a good choice to consider buying?
  7. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    Got it and thanks !!!!
  8. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    Quick question, I was wondering where you all get your charcoal at? And is there a certain brand you recommend?
  9. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    Thanks arclite for your informative post. I have really been looking into the Primo grills and the fact that they are made in the USA is also a plus for me. I will try this little Akorn Jr out and see how it goes and then I am really looking forward to buying either a Primo or KJ . JIM
  10. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    I am hoping to because then I can justify buying a big one ( lol )
  11. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    Ok so I went and bought the Akorn Jr ( $109 ) and will use this to get a handle on the kamado style of cooking and then buy myself a KJ classic. I figured I could take this grill with me when I go places with my daughter.
  12. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    Yes, I did see that grill and figured I would go and get one ( just for the heck of it ) and if anything I could take it to the firehouse and smoke some briskets and other stuff. I looked at the BGE and it is a little costly as compared to KJ with less accesories and was at Costco and saw a pit boss for $650 which seemed sturdy but I want to make sure whatever grill I purchase has good service and a warranty.
  13. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    Thank you all and I am so happy to be on a site that actually helps newbies like myself.
  14. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    I will look for a local dealer. I live 20 min from Chicago so I am sure there are several and I think it would be good to get a hands on feel of the grill prior to purchasing. I don't cook much but that is also because I don't have a good grill and the summers are too darn hot to do indoor meals. I cook more here at the firehouse but really enjoy grilling with lump charcoal as opposed to just gas flame. Thanks from Jim
  15. Hello all I need advice on a grill.

    Thanks everyone. I was looking at getting the Kamado Joe jr but after seeing it's limitations I may need a bigger one. I don't mind spending a little more for quality and from what I here is that the Kamado Joe is a good choice and also the Primo but what has the most bang for your buck?
