  1. So, I decided to take the plunge on the monolith trays. The 18” ‘le chef’ versions perfectly fit on the kJ classic as they’re an 18” diameter. They work nicely as roasting tins and I’m really pleased; you can really maximise your cooking space. I roasted some veg in one tonight, with the second underneath it as a tray for some sweet potatoes. Chicken breasts over direct heat on the other side. 100% would recommend to KJ users wanting half-moon roasting tins/drip trays
  2. Awesome, thank you! Are they the “Le chef” ones? How deep are they? And do you think you could use them as roasting tins as well as drip trays?
  3. Does anyone have any experience of using monolith accessories with a KJ 3 classic? I’ve been wanting some semi-circular drip trays for my KJ3 for a while but the only ones I can see are made by monolith as part of their smart grid system. It looks like they are 18” diameter, so will presumably fit into the divide & conquer rack ok, but would love to know if anyone can confirm that they fit before I buy them! Thanks in advance
  4. About 180°C in the dome. It was really good
  5. Pineapple! Stick it on for 60-90 minutes, glazed with rum and brown sugar and serve with vanilla ice cream. Delicious desert.
  6. In case anyone was interested, I had an email reply from the manufacturer, confirming that it isn’t recommended for the KJ 3 as it doesn’t integrate well with either the sloroller or 3 tier d&c rack
  7. https://ceramicgrillstore.com/collections/kamado-joe-grills-accessories/products/adjustable-rig-combo-classic-kamado-joe Has anyone used one of these with a KJ3 classic? All of the manufacturer’s demo videos seem to be with the classic 2. Would it fit with the sloroller? Would you be able to fit the GrillGrate half moon on it directly? It needs to be sat on the steel grates when using the divide & conquer rack.
  8. I used the grill expander to put a chicken on and a cast iron paella pan underneath it with potatoes in for this effect. I had the sloroller in rather than the joetisserie, so not sure it totally meets your brief but it worked really well. The potatoes were delicious, cooked in goose fat with chicken juices falling on them.
  9. They still seem to be updating the signals firmware almost weekly, and the beta app even more frequently. I’m still getting quite a lot of overshoot and oscillation, particularly after opening the lid. I think that the fan re-activates too soon after closing. Connection issues seem to be fixed. Other minor points are that despite having everything set to Celsius, the pit temp on billows can only be set in degrees F, which is annoying. The maximum temp you can set to is also only 300F for some reason. Overall much better though. How’s everyone else doing?

    I guess you may have done them already, but I used the sloroller for some that I did recently, and they were superb! Consensus I’ve seen generally for sloroller vs deflectors is that the sloroller is generally better for even cooking, so use it when you can. I’ve only been using my heat deflectors for 2 zone setup direct/indirect
  11. I’ve been emailing the software developers at ThermoWorks and they’ve been very interested and helpful with the feedback. Apparently they’re updating the app almost daily, and firmware every week or so. Hopefully they’ll work these bugs out soon
  12. Hello! I’ve just received my KJ 3 classic as a slightly early 40th birthday present. Loving it so far, this forum has been very useful over the last 3 weeks, so thought I’d officially sign up and say hi
  13. “Just” as in, today (23 Jun 20)? I installed a firmware update a week or so ago and although the temperature control is tighter, with less on an overshoot after lid opening, the connection to the app was v buggy and the whole unit froze/crashed twice when I used it yesterday. I had to turn it off and on to reconnect to the app 5 or 6 times during a 6 hour cook. Unimpressed ☹️. Have downloaded the beta app today after emailing them so will try that.
