Went ahead with the KJ purchase. On sale at the fireplace store around the corner, $200 off normal retail price tilted the deal. First cook scheduled for Saturday, rib plate. 5-6 hrs at 275 deg F. Franklin method.
New here to the forum, not yet an owner of a Kamado, but planning to become one in the next few weeks. Researching various models, features prices, etc. Current faves:
KJ Classic II - likely purchase, but not totally sold yet.
