  1. Hey Team, I have a little youtube channel and I've gotten a bunch of questions on my set up so I made this vid. I figured I'd share it with this group. If you have feedback let me know.
  2. Wow I love it, I have those same two grills! How hard is it to pull the big one out if you had to move it? Looks like the Jr comes out the top?
  3. This is great, I need to do a dry run as well and this has reminded me to go get a bird!
  4. I do what you're talking about every time I cook pizza... never had an issue.
  5. I bought this thinking I would use it on my Akorn and I just dont use it. I tried it two times and I couldn't get it dialed in so I gave up. Its in like new condition. Comes with all the parts an Akorn adapter and instruction manual. No box. I don't really know what to ask for it so make me an offer and we can figure out the shipping. Thanks
  6. Just wanted to provide some video evidence that it works. (PS it works great)
  7. I keep my grills inside and I'm hoping to never have to replace the firebox! I told myself if the Akorn ever rusts out I am going to get a KJ
  8. Had a big day (for me) Saturday. Rack of ribs on the Jr, and my first Rotisserie Chicken using the JoeTisserie on the Sr. My wife has perfected her bake bean recipe as well so dinner was pretty special. I have fallen in love with Tyler Florence's BBQ rub recipe, which I used on both the ribs and the chicken. If you need sauce (we did not) Trader Joes KC style sauce goes PERFECT with it. Used apple wood for smoke on both. Ribs took 5 hours at 225, chicken took 75 mins at 375. All in all it was a great day of cooking / puttering around the house. Hope you all had a good weekend.
  9. When I do my beer can I just use the stock smoking stone, but I'm with you I dont get a real dark color on the skin. Not saying its not delicious but if you're looking for more color maybe the rotisserie is the way to go... BBQube Pizza ring is wide open in the front so its not going to seal up at all. I was under the impression that the primary cooking for a rotisserie set up was direct heat. So although you'll lose a lot of heat out the front I think it should be fine.
  10. Hey Team, Just had my 40th Bday and my wife bought me a JoeTisserie for the Akorn (after some research it looks like it fits the Akorn) but now I'm having second thoughts. It's a pretty expensive set up, and my beer can chicken is already really good. Am I going to LOVE having a Rotisserie? And if so, should I just get the BBQube Pizza Ring and a universal rotisserie for less than half the price of the JoeTisserie? Let me know what you think... Should I send this thing back, or open it up and spin some chicken.
  11. This reminds me of the Good Eats episode when Alton makes a Kamado out of two flower pots.
  12. Another successful cook on the Akorn last night. One interesting thing is I got my first box of KJ charcoal and it was REALLY smoky, and not a great smoke flavor either... it almost had a lighter fluid twinge to it, very weird. I even let it burn for a quite a while as I was waiting for the smoke to clear up. I'm not sure I want to use this stuff. I got a good deal on it from Amazon so I'll figured I'd give it a shot.
