  1. I drove 45 minutes to a roadshows to get my big joetisserie, and it was well worth it. Great way to do tri tip and chicken. I got a basket for it and I'm going to try some veggies in it.
  2. That's the route I've been doing. RO is great for grilling and I can cook for hours on the KJ big block lump. Got a great deal on a bunch of bags of it at a Costco roadshow.
  3. I've been pretty happy with the KJ customer service. They definitely stand behind their products.
  4. Vince that definitely looks off. I have an older big joe but Joetisserie fits completely flush on it.
  5. Where'd you get the gasket? Also, John's videos are great. If you haven't tried his smoked salmon recipe, I highly recommend it.
  6. I would agree with you. If it came with the joetissiere it would be worth it. The real deal is the big joe with the Joe JR. I got both, a bag of charcoal, 2 boxes of fire starters and a cover. Honestly the cover is pretty subpar and overpriced compared to other options, but since it was free it's all good I guess.
  7. Thermoworks smoke. You need a good thermometer. A pizza stone is a must have as well. Pizza off the grill is great. I got a big joetisserie a few months ago and I love it. It is a game changer for chicken.
  8. Not that it makes you feel better but I second guessed my big joe purchase, I didn't think I needed 24" to grill on. I could not have been more wrong. It is my most used kamado by a long shot.
  9. Nope. If you do the demo deal you have to wait until Costco closes on the last day of the KJ roadshow. How can they use the demo model to show other people how the grill works if the demo model is on your back patio? All the demo models have to stay until the end of the roadshow. By the way there is no demo deal for the Joe JR only, you buy the big joe and get the Joe JR for free in the demo deal. For the classic you buy the classic and get a bunch of extra accessories.
  10. Let us know how it goes. I have a pre-2017 big joe that I'd like to upgrade the gasket on.
  11. I have a similar story. I filed a claim on my firebox last night and this morning I had an email from the rep saying the claim was approved. The only downside is that it'll be two weeks before they get more of the big joe fireboxes in stock but she said it was fine to cook on the cracked one. I'm very happy with that customer service.
  12. I've always wondered why they sell those in packs of 3. Wouldn't you want 4 feet instead of 3?
  13. Same here. I bought 4 bags on Friday. Good deal there, too bad I missed out on it.
  14. Yeah, I think that's the normal price now. I got a couple bags this weekend from Home Depot at that price. Between those and the KJ roadshow at Costco with the big block i got there, I'm set for the summer.
  15. Was this at the Santa Clara Costco? If so we might have been hours apart. The rep called me on Monday that they got the big joetisseries in so I went down and bought that and 4 bags of lump. Edit: nevermind. Saw you were in Oregon on your previous post.
  16. I have a couple chickens in my freezer that need to be eaten so rotisserie chicken it is for the first cook. I have a good friend that is leaving the area to relocate in Texas in a couple months and before he leaves I wanted to cook something unique, so I figured I would get a suckling pig and try that on the big joetisserie. Temp control on the big joe was definitely a learning curve for me due to the size. It took a few cooks but I eventually got it down. Small moves on the air vents and then give it time to stabilize. You'll get it down, it just takes a little practice. If it's a low temp cook like smoking salmon then definitely use the divider plate for the charcoal to have a smaller bed of coals. I found my biggest enemy was wind. I can have it dialed in and then the wind picks up or dies down and screws up my temp. Now I try to position the Joe so it isn't in the wind.
  17. Thanks for the response. I was wondering that too. I didn't know if the forks were a universal size.
  18. Just want to resuscitate this thread and let you guys know the Santa Clara Costco did have the big joetisserie. I called that Costco on Friday the 6th and the rep said he didn't have any but he might get some in on Monday. The rep called me back Monday and said he got 5 of the big joetisseries in. I couldn't make it Monday but I drove down Tuesday and they had already sold two. I got the third one so if anyone is reading this there are two left. I also grabbed four bags of lump charcoal since I was already there. Thanks again for the heads up MichaelS. Now I'm just annoyed I won't get to try it out until Sunday!
  19. Yeah, that is definitely my plan. I'll probably end up going either way and making a day out of it. If they don't have the big joetisserie I'll stock up on some lump charcoal.
  20. I registered here instead of lurking to thank you. There's a roadshow at a Costco about an hour from me in a week so I'll head down to get a big joetisserie and some lump charcoal. Thanks for letting me know they have the big joetisserie! Congrats on the big joe.
