  1. Thanks to all who replied. I have been using Royal Oak and nothing else so far. I have not used the kamado very much so far. len440 mentions Rockwood lump charcoal as being mild. I have read the same thing in online reviews. I guess I'll pick up a bag of that and try it. Thanks again guy/gals.
  2. Like the title says. I'm looking for lump charcoal that will impart the mildest smoke flavor to food. What is your preference for a mild lump charcoal? I foolishly though when I bought my Kamado Joe 2 it would be similar to gill over regular charcoal.
  3. Thanks to all. I got er done. I think it turned out well for my first chicken. BTW the did lift the skin and get some rub directly on the meat.
  4. I"m going to do a Spatchcock Chicken on my Kamado Joe 2 this evening. I'll brine it then put a rub on it. I don't know how to best set up the grill. I'm thinking of using the top grill/grate with a 1/2 heat deflector under where the chicken goes. Cook it at about 300 degrees. What do you think?
  5. In this video the guy blocks the small air holes. He says it's an improvement because it forces more air up through the bottom grate.
  6. Golf Griller, Thanks for your reply.
  7. What is the difference between the Kamado Joe heat deflectors and a pizza stone? How do you clean your heat deflectors? Also how do you clean the stainless steel cooking racks?

    First fire

    How much lump coal do you put in the kamado Joe 2? This will be a test run, on cooking evolved.
  9. I just got my new Kamado Joe setup and soon to do my first cook. Thought I'd start out with a "beer can chicken." In looking at different recipes I ran across this video. This guy reall raided on my parade so to speak. Now I'm not sure if I want to ever try it. What do you seasoned Kamado Joe users think.
  10. Thank you Burger Meister. With your help I was able to find a video showing it's use. It would be nice if the part was labeled or mentioned in the manual. I put off building my first fire yesterday because I thought I might have not installed an important part.
  11. I tried to add a picture but it won't take
  12. I put my Kamado Joe Classic 2 together. I have a part left over. Best I remember it was packaged with the grill gripper. It look to be some kind of a spacer, a washer and a nut. What is it,
  13. Thanks, I defiantly will use pavers and feet. In fact my Kamado came in the mail today.
