  1. Charcoal basket for sure. I really like a temp controller. I’m on my 3rd iKamand and it works flawlessly. If it breaks I may do the Fireworks controller next. But, KJ has replaced all of mine for free. There warranty is fantastic. Slow but fantastic.
  2. I went a little more. Well, a lot more. 3 out of 6 (my family) said it was too smoky. The cheese really absorbs the smoke. I’ll definitely cut back next time.
  3. Did you add any wood or just use lump?
  4. Actually, John has the best advice in you need to get your hands on one. For $1500, you could spend a few hours driving and looking. There is probably someone near you that would love to show your their KJ. Once you touch and feel the two, you will probably know which one will work best for you.
  5. There won’t be a difference in the actual cooking but I’ll betcha you will enjoy cooking much more. Now, $1500 more? I’m not too sure about that. You could by all the accessories you would ever want for $1500, I think.
  6. In defense of AO, he was questioned and he was prodded. What’s he supposed to do? He simply answered the questions. I betcha if the questions stop, he’ll stop. Some people love certain brands of charcoal to the point of being fan boys. I am of my 2 brands. Some people accept inferior products. Some don’t.
  7. When I was experimenting, the RO didn’t last long either. I just used it up with my burgers and steaks. I’m pretty picky and have settled on KJ and Fogo. I’m done experimenting chasing the “perfect” charcoal.
  8. Or if I need to wear a mask to prevent black nasal passages.
  9. With the info I see and have read, I don't see this as a warranty issue. I agree with those that say this is a seller and shipper issue. Stay on the seller but I'd get with the shipper, too. Probably too late??Do you have pics of the box it came in? Was it damaged? It looks like the seller may be something less than legitimate????? IDK???? After exhausting seller and shipper responsibility, go with the KJ warranty. And in reality, expect Nov or Dec. as far as replacement arrival. I'm still waiting on parts from spring and my updates keep going out another month every month. They always honor their stuff, but getting it from China seems to be taking a little longer than normal. Remember the "slow boat from China"?

    Dojoe Question

    I wouldn’t get over 650 F dome temp with a KJ. I did and I caused some issues. 3 of us in the neighborhood all agree the biggest waste of our KJ money was on the DoeJoe. Get a dedicated pizza maker if you want pizza. IMHO
  11. I agree with you as my soapstone is my favorite piece followed by rotisserie. They will replace it and they should have some in stock. The reason I say that is they gave me a 2nd one about a month ago because I have been waiting so long for a ceramic part. You could probably still use it if you just lay it on the grill. Not perfect but it should keep your rib eyes coming. I’d pursue with KJ.
  12. I just drooled on my phone. could vanilla ice cream make it any better?
  13. I stress just like you if I have family or guests over. In the beginning give yourself and hour from lighting to cooking. If I am doing steaks, I use 2-3 fire starters. Light about 1 1/2 hours before wanting food on the table. After about 10-15 minutes, I place my soap stone down low and my grill grate up high. I monitor my soap stone temp and around 500-600 F I drop the rib eyes, filet, HB, etc. Sear them for about 1-2 minutes on each side and then move up to grate to finish them off. It took me 6 months and umpteen screw ups to learn how to become somewhat competent. I have a tech background which hurts me. I feel the need to by the data. By the exact number. Some the best advice I can give you is God gave you 2 eyes and a nose. Learn to use them more than the thermapen and a timer. AND....that is much easier said than done.
  14. My wife is the first item that comes to mind. I am assuming you are demonstrating a touch of sarcasm? LOL
