  1. Hi All, I've got a BJ III and I have an issue with the folding shelves. Simply, they don't fold down or up as the shelve arms catch the bracket pins, I assumed it was a poor design but KJ have said they should. Sending me replacement parts but still no success. I'm going back to KJ but I can't see where this is going wrong if the new parts don't fix it. Any suggestions? Thanks
  2. Thanks for the extra comments, I have cooked with it and it all seems to be okay. no signs of the marks going away
  3. Thanks Chris, John, My initial reaction was mold given it developed over the winter but then I was worried about the teflon.
  4. Sorry @JohnLittle, didn't have notifications turned on. thanks for the reply. Rust is suprising but it is like a powder. I might contact KJ and see what they say.
  5. Hi All, I didn't get to use my big joe over the winter (uk) and the sloroller was stored on the cart the whole time. it's ended up being covered in an white substance (photos attached) which I've tried to clean off without any luck. Any idea what it is and if it safe to do a cook in the morning with it? Thanks James

    Ok so quick update, the website offer on the KJ was expiring so I put a placeholder order in on Sunday, payment to be completed over the phone. Still wasn't sure about doing it but they were happy for me to think about it for a few days. Come this morning and I get a phone call from a delivery driver, asking where my house is! So in the end I joined the Big Joe III club
  7. Thanks in advance for any comments

    Quick update, decided I'm going for something bigger that the 18" grates. So that left it between. - Wild goose 24 (£889) - Louisiana Grill 24" (CostCo so lifetime warranty) £599 online or £455 instore - KJ Big Joe II £1700 ruling out the Wild Goose on the basis of one year warranty and it being based on the original BJ so there a risk of it slamming shut. Placed an order for a BJ last night but I've woken up questioning it. Can it really be with 3x a LG/ while I'm spending silly money should I have spent an 300 for the BJ III?
  9. Hi, placed an order for a Big Joe II last night but now I'm wondering if I should have spent the extra £300 on the III. Is it worth the upgrade?

    It turns out the Goose 24 is the same size as the Big Joe! £899 but only one year warranty . Not a problem @JeffieBoy, you may have pointed in the direction of a lead option. I live on the Wirral (near Liverpool). Thanks @PeteHr, I did look at the Monolith they look good but seemed a bit much.

    Oh @JeffieBoy, you've really confused things now... I hadn't realised the goose was an 18" grate aka same size as the KJ Classic. They seem to imply their 24 is the same size as a Big Joe too, they sell the griddle, however their measurements 60 external would imply different

    Hi @BeefyB, I'm torn between the Joe Classic and the Louisiana Grill from CostCo. Here's my thread https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/42704-kamado-joe-classic-vs-pit-bosslouisiana-grills/ It's quite close with the extra discount at greenhousepeople. Thanks @JeffieBoy, I'll have a good read of that thread. I came across the Goose when the Aldi Kamado came out but I was worried about the limited guarantee.
  13. They include a gbe style plate setter for the price. I'm only including the additional multi level so it's a fair comparison plus for direct grilling the grate becomes level with the rim.
  14. Thanks Jack, There does seem to be a lot of happy people out there but still, the KJ gets rated the best. Having said that, I'm looking at the original not a more recent version

    Hi, Short term lurker from the UK, looking to start my kamado journey. There seems to be wealth of experience on here so looking forward to getting involved. Starting off with a question on what to buy. Hopefully the mods will approve it soon.
