  1. damn... making me itch to cook up a few asap!
  2. I got worried when mine didnt line up.. I think my ring bands ended up too tight and propped the lid up in spots... mind you I was frequently snugging the ring botls.
  3. I just had this happen to me.. (I already loctited all the nuts on the hinge and verified it wasnt that) I didnt touch a thing and found it wasnt sealing on the right side and a good bit of the back. I found it odd as I didnt touch anything but I ended up just loosening both the upper and lower ring bands verifying it sat straight and fully sealed when i did loosen both rings. Then re snugged the ring bands but just to say they where "snug" and the lid seems to seal perfectly again
  4. ah... guess ive been lucky this winter with the gaskets themselves not freezing... the only thing I had to deal with was the top vent freezing closed due to the build up of greases and soot.
  5. truthfully its a no brainer for me if I was in your shoes boone!.... I was split 50/50 between the pit boss and vision as both carried the same lifetime warranty on ceramics and more so same price. I would of never even considered the pit boss without the lifetime warranty. The differences between the vision and PB are so minimal that there's not really one better then the other . Both are made by auplex too... dont get me wrong I LOVE my PB kamado.. but warranty is a HUGE factor
  6. odd that your gasket ripped. ive used mine for the whole winter without issues. I am guessing your gaskets got saturated with water somehow or it wasnt covered?
  7. hmmm I didnt know they implemented a limited lifetime on ceramics of 5 years now... In my opinion....that was the only real benefit of buying the lower cost kamado's. cheap cost with just as good of a warranty... If I were you and the ceramics arn't covered for lifetime shop for a different brand name that carries that warranty. not sure how limited you are in that area... but vision offers a lifetime on ceramics still... otherwise... i'd gladly pay out the extra $$$ for a BGE, Prima or Kamado Joe just for their lifetime warranty. From previous posts on here... They dont usually warrant the parts unless it effects the function... a hairline crack like the one you pictured isnt going to effect the way it functions so they may say to "wait and replace it once its actually broken"..... though now that they only offer 5 years... they may change it... but you would have to call to find out.
  8. i'd be interested in one if there's a bulk deal. Ottawa ON region
  9. Maybe also contact the warranty dept see if they can hook you up at atleast a discount or something. I know its not the fault of the product itself breaking but yea... never know they may help a customer out! and definitely no way that thing got blown over by itself.
  10. i had tried letting it heat up with the lid closed. maybe I got too impatient but after about 5min it was still solid so took the torch to it. I will say that its pretty gummed up as it is.... though I kind of like it like that as it now has a solid seal when i close it
  11. damn glad i havent run into that issue yet where it freezes shut! I usually just take a torch to the chimney and break it loose that way... more of an annoyance then anything. I could get it cleaned up was just hoping there would be an alternate method vs loosing that tight seal with the build up. guess its one more reason to push for a heater garage!
  12. Yea I got the cover. I dont even leave mine outside I store it in my unheated garage once its shut down. I use an umbrella to cover it up if its snowing so it never usually gets wet. the top vent seems to freeze up with the "sludge" build up you get over time. I'd clean the sludge up which would help but the sludge helps keep a air tight seal
  13. So anyone here use their Kamado much in the cold months? Im starting to REALLY dislike the style of chimney / top vent style of the pit boss through out the winter months. The damn thing freezes Shut SOLID. I need to use a torch on it to thaw it so it can break free. Getting worries that my adjustement tab will break sooner then later from prying on it to break it free. I COULD clean it out and probably be ok.. however its finally got enough build up on it so it has a proper tight seal
  14. cant beat the forum format / ability to search for information etc. the amount of recipes and information / feed back etc on here is priceless, most things posted on FB are lost and forgotten within hours usually.
