  1. My KJC1 gets cleaned about once a year, not counting emptying the ashes and running it hot to clean the deflectors and grill. I purchased a battery powered leaf blower and deep cleaning the interior of ashes became much, much, easier. I remove the grill, deflectors and chimney cap, close the lid, open the bottom vent and stick the blower on top. After making darn sure the bottom vent is pointed down range and the wind is at my back, I pull the trigger for about 10 seconds. The rest of the cleaning includes wiping down the ceramic, checking the bolts and bits to make sure everything is in working order, cleaning the chimney cap and giving the side tables a scrub.
  2. Nice post! I honestly didn't see it coming. You'll fit right in here.
  3. Very nice! Double bonus points for re-purposing palet lumber!
  4. The 'tread' on all four of the casters on my KJC1 have disintegrated. They have a stud that bolts into a welded nut on the stock frame. Does anyone know what size the threaded stud is? I'm assuming it's metric, like the rest of the bolted bits on the grill. I've reached out to KJ customer service, but was hoping someone here would get me a quicker answer. Thanks

    Welcome to the forum and thanks for the pics, great looking cook!
  13. Welcome to the forum, your new grill has center stage! To reduce smoke try putting the chunks of smoking wood on the bottom and then charcoal on top. When the the grill gets up to temperature the gasses from the wood chunks will pass through the bed of hot coals allowing further combustion.
  14. Welcome to the forum, nice looking cooks!
  15. Welcome to the forum, hope you enjoy your new-to-you grill! No advise on high altitude grilling, living in FL all of my experience is pretty close to sea level.

    Very nice looking cook and welcome to the forum!
  19. Welcome to the forum! When I first started out with mine I would futz with the vents way too much trying to chase the 'perfect' temperature. Now that I've gotten less obsessive about the temperature, I can tell you that after an hour at 225 my KJC1 stays at 225 unless I, 1) open the grill up for a while to do something to the food or 2) adjust the vents. Stay away from the vents, +/- 10-15F isn't going to make a noticeable difference. Best of luck with it!
  20. Welcome to the forum and best of luck with the new KJC3
