  1. I love pizza. I've done a couple of pies on my BJ using an old pizza stone I have. But I've been thinking about buying a soapstone to replace it because of its versatility of what I can cook on it.
  2. Hi

    Welcome to the forum! Best of luck on the new move.
  3. Hello from Charleston SC

    Congratulations on the new grill! Welcome to the forum.
  4. Checking in from Kansas

    Congratulations on the New Joe! And welcome to the forum.
  5. 17 and Counting

    Congratulations to you guys! If your day was half as good as good as the food looks you must of had a great day.
  6. Cooking in 6 degrees

    Funny you said that Meister. I had A small amount of coal left over from my last cook and I added what was left in the bag I had open. And of course mostly smaller pieces left at the bottom of the bag.I was thinking just the opposite that I didn't get enough air flow and not enough coal and larger pieces to heat the kamado to a higher temperature.
  7. Cooking in 6 degrees

    A few filets and hasselback potatoes in 6 degrees. I was able to get the temperature up to almost 475 degrees. With all the vents fully opened. I had the lump charcoal almost up to the air holes in the fire box. Next time I think I`'ll have to add more fuel to get the temp hotter.

  9. New Lodge Round (double handle) skillets

    Nice find Keeper. Gonna order one. Thanks for sharing!
  10. Used my Joetesserie for the first time. Doesn't seem like the it fits correctly. Looking at other on you tube it seems like it may be the norm. And it just very poorly designed.
  11. KJ big Jotisserie gap

    I'm just as disappointed. Very poorly designed. They ask top dollar for their products and accessories and it lacks the proper fit. I have a Weber rotisserie for my Weber grill for years and no problems what so ever. And that was less than $100.
  12. KJ big Jotisserie gap

    Now looking at videos on you tube it looks like evryones fits like that. Using it as I type. Held temp steady at 350 for almost 2 hours. Raise temp to 400 for past 20 minutes. Seems fine. Seems like it should drop down over gasket. But it doesn't.
  13. KJ big Jotisserie gap

    Just trying mine for the first time. It really doesn't fit correct either. This is the one I got from BBQ guys.com. wonder if it's for the original BJ. Not the BJ II.
  14. Greetings From Tampa

    Welcome! As TKOBBQ stated you will get many varying opinions on that. I just went through this myself recently. I must of researched almost ever kamado on the market. You got to know what your budget is. Figure out what best for needs. Company warranties ect. Do your homework. You'll narrow it down to 2 brands or so. Which ever one has the best deal at the time will probably be the one you'll get. Well that's what happened to me anyway. It was either a Primo or Kamado Joe for me. What ever brand you choose you'll love it. And you'll be hooked.

    Welcome. I'm new to ceramic cooking as well. And I can't get enough of it. Enjoy
