  1. Welcome Dave! My Joe took forever to be delivered as well...It is frustrating but one of my buddies told me to relax, you can't rush perfection. I don't have any links at the moment, but just remember to be patient and let the temperature come up to temp slowly.
  2. Welcome to the forum and look forward to seeing what you have to share!

    Hi Liam, welcome!
  4. The same happens to me when I try and brush my grates when they are on the top part of the D&C system. If you move the grates to the lower position of the D&C system they will lock in better and won't fall off when you brush them.
  5. Welcome and congrats on the new grill!
  6. That looks great, I wanna give this a try!
  7. Looking good! How did you like the Maverick 4 channel? I use the igrill2, which works great but the bluetooth range is limited.
  8. Those look good! Can't wait to give these a try. Good job with the video!

    Great to have you on board and looking forward to learning from your Kamado experience and seeing your cooks! Best of luck with the cancer treatments, I know its not too fun but this forum should definitely make the time go by!
  10. I was curious about this too - According to the Kamado Joe website, it does retrofit the classic II. "Each insert is designed for the common kamado grill plate sizes i.e. 18” and 24”. It may not perform as well as in the Classic III and Big Joe III. The insert is optimized for these smoker shapes and sizes." That being said, I will probably wait for more reviews from people using the SloRoller on the classic II before buying it. I'm quite happy with the performance of my Classic II as is.
  11. Welcome Raphael! I'm in the same boat as you....long time Kettle user, now enjoying my new KJ Classic II!
  12. Hi all, just wanted to say hi. I am a new Kamado Joe Classic II owner, from southern California in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. I have been a lifelong "griller" and got into real BBQ several years ago, and was smoking on my Weber Kettle for years using the snake method until I got my Kamado. Although I usually have great results (Everyone loves my brisket) the snake method can be a pain....more variables and more things that can go wrong, more babysitting. A friend introduced me to Kamado's a few years back....he himself has used an Akorn for years and has had great results. After researching and saving up, I went with a Kamado Joe Classic II. I have had it for 2 months now and absolutely love it...I have cooked everything on it except I have not yet tried a brisket yet. I always had great luck smoking Briskets on my weber, so I am hoping for similar or better results on the Kamado. Looking forward to joining in the forum and helping people out, and probably be asking for guidance myself. Glad to be on board! I started following the Keto diet recently due to health reasons, and so I use sugar free/low carb BBQ sauces and rubs wherever possible.
