  1. Thanks for the info and thought something was up-is the family still involved do you know? Surprised there was not a press release of any kind but maybe I missed something.
  2. Hi Everyone, I just had one of my heat deflector plates crack and was on KJ's website reviewing warranty information. Noticed that they are no longer 3 miles up the street from my house in Norcross, Ga. but now down in Columbus, Ga. A few years ago, I got some warranty parts for my Oklahoma Joe smoker out of Columbus and am wondering if the company was sold or what? Sure hope not since one of the reasons I went with a Joe is that they are a family owned business (my kids went to the same HS) and I love their entrepreneurial spirit.
  3. Looks great and you must of been the first group off!!!
  4. So I've smoked about a dozen Butts on my stick and electric smoker and was anxious to try one out on my KJ. Picked up a small 6lb from the Ingles (local SE grocery chain) and put it on at 8AM with heat plates and a temp of around 250 degrees. Cooking temps were mostly stable, but it did vary by maybe 20 degrees as I am still getting used to managing the internal temps, but I ran into the 160 stall and it sat there for 2 hours. Finally pulled it off the KJ and put it in the oven at 265 and it sat there for damn near 2 hours before slowly moving up in temps. Besides throwing dinner plans all to hell, I just could not believe it would stall that long. Any comments on this or if I might of done something wrong? I did not have any injections inside and wasn't peaking at the cook at all. Thanks....Kyle
  5. Thanks for the info. ! I see the dates for a show in Greenville SC and that it runs during the week and weekend? Might be in the area for work and may stop by on a Monday and hope it is stocked with some charcoal.

  7. I went by their headquarters in Georgia a few weeks ago and spoke with the owners. Good guys and make a pretty cool product. Made in India and take pride of the thickness of their ceramic.
  8. Good point about looking over the assembly specs. I almost always prefer to do this myself since I know it was done right or wrong for that manner! I did take a few minutes to calibrate my theromoter today-only off about 10 degrees but will check the bolts and band alignment next few days.
  9. Hi Guys & Gals, Excited to be a official member of the forum and keep up with all the good advice. Had a Primo grill about 15 years ago (got it right from the factory!) but never used it much. Moved over to some Weber gas and kettle grills-which are excellent and added a stick smoker last year. While I love the stick smoker-It is a love/hate relationship, since it requires so much attention. My electric smoker was set and forget, where the stick smoker constantly needs adjusting. My neighbors all have BGE's and I love the simplicity of the Kamado grills. A few weeks ago I was in Sam's Club walking the aisles for some exercise (I'm not even a member but was travelling in Mobile and it was close to my hotel) and saw their Vision B grill on sale. Unfortunately they were out of stock but it get me to start checking out some Sam's Club's and I even called their 800 number to see if any were around. Unfortunately they were sold out everywhere. I'm located in the back yard of BGE, Kamado Joe (my daughter went to high school with owners son), Primo and a company called Grill Dome. I checked out Grill Dome and really liked their grills but just wasn't ready to pull the trigger and add another grill to my small collection! Then my local Home Depot had their Kamado Joe's marked down from around $1200 to $980-still to pricey for me compared to a Vision on Sam's Club website at $499. A few weeks went by and they marked them down again to $840 and got the manager to knock another $40 off and grabbed one already assembled (I would much prefer to assemble it myself but this made life easy). So long introduction but enjoyed a few nice Ribeye's on the Joe last night and looking forward to venturing out! Thanks! Kyle
