  1. Very nice! Beautiful work on the tables!!
  2. That's what I was going for! Hopefully, it works!
  3. Well, my KJII was delivered last week, and I got it all set up. I used concrete wedge anchors to bolt a bike rack to the concrete behind our house, and I'm using a U-lock bike lock and a 15ft braided cable to secure the KJ to the bike rack. Then, the cover goes over everything. I also built a small wedge out of 2X4s and plywood so that it can sit on a level surface while it's lit. All seems to be working really well so far!

    Thanks! Yeah, the 1.5 year old was ALL ABOUT the ribs!

    Sorry to revive an old post, but I wanted to follow up saying that my KJ II was delivered last week, and I couldn't be happier with it! I've done 3 cooks so far (steaks, chicken thighs, and ribs), and they were all delicious! I've got a whole chicken and some T-bones in the refrigerator for this week, and I'm looking forward to trying a low-n-slow on some pork butt soon too! I... I think I might be addicted. Good thing my family is loving the food that comes off it! :D
  6. Totally fair point! I thought I head read somewhere that the Costco event was annual and was assuming that was correct.
  7. The Costco event ended April 28, at least for the option of ordering online, which is what I did. I don't remember 100% off the top of my head, but I think there are still some roadshow dates left. I don't know what the timeline you're looking at is, but if the budget is tight, it might make sense to wait until next year and order online through Costco since that has free shipping. My classic II was listed at $999, and I paid $1060 with taxes, curbside delivery included. The $200 in savings off the regular price of the KJ is less than the price of a year long Costco membership too.
  8. It's being delivered tomorrow!
  9. Meh, I don't think this is headed toward a fight. I'm not interested in getting into a keyboard war with anyone, and given that ckreef, the user I was quoting "liked" my comment, it seems he's not either. Would be nice if someone could take a tape measure to their wheels and get back to me, though...
  10. This was in no way helpful. I am well aware that there is no way to completely prevent theft. As you (and several others earlier in this thread have) said, if they really want it, they'll figure out a way to get it. Even bank vaults get robbed sometimes. However, as I pointed out previously, most thieves are opportunistic, and if you can make stealing something difficult and require advanced preparation/proper materials, etc. the majority of thieves aren't going to bother with it. The plan I have in mind will make moving the grill from where I put it pretty darn difficult, and I'm also making sure it's covered under our homeowner's insurance in the event that some determined and well-prepared thieves were to manage to take it despite that. Beyond that, there's not really anything else I can do. If you would like to be helpful, rather than uselessly antagonistic, please answer the question I asked about the distances between the wheels on the cart. Thank you!
  11. That thread only had the measurement between the two front wheels. I also need the measurement from the front wheels to the back wheels. Thanks for helping me find one of the two numbers I need, though!
  12. Can anyone tell me what the distances (width & depth) between the wheels on the standard cart for the KJ Classic II are? I'm realizing that's an important measurement for what I have planned, and I would like to have as much of the set up done as possible before my grill is delivered next week. Thanks in advance!
  13. Ah, this makes sense now. Thank you!
  14. I just recently purchased a KJ Classic II (still awaiting delivery) and have been on the fence about buying an automatic controller for it. My brother and several of my friends are pretty insistent that I should, but: 1. I'm not sure I want to spend another $250-400 after splurging on the grill 2. I'm inclined to start out just playing with the grill on it's own for a while first and potentially get a controller later (or let my wife get me one for Christmas/my birthday :P). I have really appreciated the information in this thread so far, though. My thanks to all who have contributed. I hope it continues because I want to keep seeing more data and insights!
