    Kamado Joe @ Costco

    every Roadshow displays KJ demos in all three sizes; they do not rebox and take the demos with them when the show closes; thus, the demo deals

    Replacement Wire Mesh Gasket For Pre-2017 Big Joe

    Sigh– obviously, it's the only drink worthy of accompanying real barbarcue!

    Sigh... this is turning into a pissin' contest which again, you can't possibly win. You saw the truckload of Big Red, right? Let me simply say that Grizzlies USED TO live in Texas and there is a very good reason they left!

    Pre graduation Wings

    So, no explanation??? They appear to be two kinds of wings– sauced and unsauced maybe? They look delicious

    ??? @Charcoal Addict, let me inform the proud Canadian on the physical constitution of Texans in general. First of all, our hands never shake. Staring down 900 pound charging feral hogs armed with only a Bowie knife or opposing a 2500lb Brahma bull with only a shiny 8 inch belt buckle, a true Texan's hands still will not shake. Also, we have a little thing round these parts called Sweet Tea. And in Texas, if your tea of too sweet (and let's face it, sweet tea can never be too sweet), you dilute it with even more sugar.

    So, delivering Tuesday? I'm even hotter now. Saturday will be a full month since I place this order!!! If I used profanity or generally treated peope like dirt, he might have gotten a healthy dose today. I'm going to blow off steam by robo-emailing every hardware store in Wyoming and requesting that they cancel my Kamado Joe gasket order asap.

    We call that a three day weekend supply. But, seriously, it's not my truck or big Red for that matter. And, I find the emoji sort of Grinchlike.

    There's only one acceptable way to purchase big Red:

    mention on... CentralTexBBQ really doesn't mind sharing the spotlight. I also have confidence in the fear I instilled in my Hardware guy, as I can now hear his knees knocking everytime I speak with him. Also, I am more than a little offended you never heard of Big Red. Here it is in all its glory!

    Sausage and Carrots on the KJ

    The green color is at first disturbing. I also don't like the idea of any cheese in my sausage. That said, given my admitted weakness for sausage and the fact that you have cooked them so perfectly, I'd scarf those down in a second...

    it's time really to shut this down. @CentralTexBBQ has noticed that @KismetKamado seems to be taking over this thread. CentralTexBBQ is not interested in KismentKamados pictures of felt gaskets, gasket cooking experiments, buying habits @ the local hardware, or the little girl behind the counter and the expeditious manner in which she orders replacement parts. In addition, CentralTexBBQ thinks that KismetKamado should be very careful throwing down gauntlets as Texas dust is in fact scientifically attested to be the worst kind of dust to ever eat or choke on. It blinds the eyes, seeps through the skin effectively binding with the hosts DNA causing them to reject any sweet rubs or BBQ sauces on their beef; to recoginze peach and pecan as the only acceptable pies, Blue Bell as the king of all ice creams, Big Red as the queen of all sodas (let's face it– Coke is king); further overloading the senses so much so that one can never ever be satisfied living in, driving through, pronouncing or thinking of any state other than the great state of Texas! Hook 'em Horns, Go Cowboys, Go 'Stros, Go Rockets, Go CentralTexBBQ!

    Well at this point, I think that it is incumbent upon you to voluntarily not pick your up from the hardware store until you have confirmed that i have picked mine up.

    Brisket question

    I do not wrap and have no issues with brisket moistness. Foiling, chopping and saucing is never an option for me. If I do wrap, it is with butcher paper which preserves the bark- usually wrapping after seven or so hours and mostly to speed the cook along. So, perhaps I should have said that I wrap strategically. In order of importance, here are the factors regarding moist brisket: Imo, the single most important factor is when the brisket is pulled. I no longer even consider pulling at a certain temp, it's by feel and probe test only. The brisket tells me when it's done. Rest time. Even if a brisket is pulled correctly, it can be srewed up by cutting into it before it rests. Not held, but rested. Holding happens in a warmer, Cambro or faux Cambro. Resting happens on the cutting board. At least 30 minutes, prefarably at least 45. I do think that grade is also important. I do not personally use anything below choice. But, I've cooked prime and CAB choice side by side and the CAB was perhaps slightly more tender. Even so, they were pretty indistinguishable one from the other. Slicing only what is going to be used at the time. As soon as air hits a slice of brisket, it starts drying out. As for smoke- I also think that it is difficult to replicate the smokiness of stickburners in a kamado . A clean fire in an offset and a clean fire in a kamado are not identical animals. First of all, the lump charcoal is already inifintely cleaner than using air dried logs and it does not produce the smoke that the logs will. So, of course, we compensate with the use of chips and chunks. I tend to overcompensate– going a little beyond what I see others recommending, because I do want more smoke than what I percieve many Kamado owners tolerate (can't recall ever reading any of the various 'I don't like smoke' threads on offset forums.) just my 3¢
