  1. wow. I have been looking at Alibaba and there are so many manufacturers of ceramic kamados. The price is 1/4 -1/3 of retail, BUT the hard part to swallow is shipping. Has anyone ordered things from Alibaba - large / heavy like this? MOQ = Minimum Order Quanity = sometimes is 1 or 2 but Never to fill a container! Anyone will expertise in this area? imports? I am near Long Beach for major international port of entry. The number of containers and activity is unbelievable. https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Patio-Camping-Stove-Ceramic-BBQ-Smoker_60510617447.html?spm=a2700.8443308.0.0.50783e5f79wBlg For example the single 23" MODEL: TQ0023 Grill Diameter: 59cm/23.2inch Grid Diameter: 52cm/20.5inch Kamado cooking Area:2123sq cm/329sq in Net Weight:95kg Weight(with CTNS):103kg Assembled size: 128*80*120cm Package size:75*66*92cm Container: 46PCS/20"FT; 102PCS/40"FT; 147PCS/40"HQ Sample wooden packing dimension:88*78*94cm 103KG !!

  2. pied du cochon (restaurant in montreal) smoke it.. and add a lobster I have ordered it before.. it was quite good.
  3. I sprayed down the outside with water.. let it sit a couple days to dry. Then lightly sanded the outside. Takes paint really easy but you will need a couple cans of spray paint to cover the textured surface evenly,. The "cart" need a light sanding with rust removing sanding wheel attached to a drill. Don't forget to apply grease to the bottom of the wheels and cover with tape before painting it. The wheels were bone dry! You could easily replace the wheels too! BUT I did replace the bolts holding the lid and body with Stainless Steel. New felt nomex gasket. New grill (I just used a weber charcoal grate and seasoned it) otherwise I use grill grates. New charcoal grate (many options) i have a repaired clay one still but it held together with wire. New Hole drilled with a mason bit. will get a new thermo with longer probe. But the wireless remote thermo probe works fine. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H9WNQPF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 $28 bargain I make a $6 plate setter with two steel rods: DIY with a bench vise or like i did goto your local tireshop,. pre-measured /marked with the correct "bends" time = 15 minutes. :-) Have fun.
  4. NICE. I have one of those too! I just finished re-painting mine i got it used (one owner) in 2009 -- replaced the firebox with a BGE ceramic one.. The paint is just high-temp stuff from amazon.. i think used for brake calipers. around 900 https://twitter.com/digital_kungfu/status/1129875085945270272?s=20
