  1. KJ 2016 vs KJ 2017 price difference to Dennis being a one man show , I see . Carry on then
  2. talk about derailing a thread with KK talk , KK and KJ are very far apart in marketing department , 2 different strategy's , and yes the KJ can cook in rain or snow , my Vision did as well.
  3. I would redo , Dap makes a lot of different sealants not even sure I have ever seen 100% pure silicone in there products that I have seen , but cannot say for sure , and if it was me and it doesn't state that it's high temp silicone I wouldn't even think about using it on my grill.
  4. Well not really , these are Canadian prices in this thread and the prices of a KK are in US dollars , and with are low dollar it will be a big difference also there might duty fees that I know nothing about.
  5. I may be wrong but I think BGE lump is just rebranded RO lump , I'm sure others will chime in about it
  6. I'm with Lumpy on this to, the new hinge is nice but have no issues with mine , the vent not going to matter once I get the Sombot , the gaskets I will eventually replace at sometime , and it just so happens that I noticed last weekend that my firebox cracked so they are shipping me a new design , really lucked out and got the Costco roadshow BJ demo last year especially after I contacted KJ and there is no roadshows in BC. Also my local KJ dealer has the BJ listed at $ 2699.00
  7. @Charcoal Addict do you have to pull the Joetessrie all the way forward on yours , just curious because that's what I have to do otherwise it does not get a good seal in the front.
  8. I've noticed with mine that even though it fits and seals fine ( no dollar bill test but no smoke seeping out either) , that it seems a little hinge bound in the back but guess there is enough weight on the dome to over come it. Then yesterday as I was fitting it on I noticed the gasket as worn down quite a bit in the back but have no idea if it's because of the Joetessrie , I'll just keep watching it. In turn makes me wonder if or when I go with the new gaskets will they be thicker then the felts ones as this might cause a problem.
  9. @In2Fish , hope you keep this thread going with lot's of pic's as this will be something I will do instead of buying a new mixer. Buying a few parts seems way better than buying a whole new mixer. The money saved can be spent on some new toy's Good luck with your rebuild
  10. Yes this can be a slippery slope , I have BJ and JR but I keep telling my Girl that it sure would be nice to have the Classic , you know for those times you need it !!
  11. I'm not sure about the t&s but I'll post a link anyways as I feel that a of akorn user's would be interested in his products http://bbqube.us/
  12. This is the best suggestion by far go check out your dealers and see what you like best , see what deals can be had and pick a grill that you want to own , I don't think you will go wrong with a Primo , KJ or BGE
  13. No doubt about it , when your finished with your cook snuff it out , as for the next cook stir out the ash add more lump and start cooking again , no need to use more fuel then you have to. Saves on the dollars
  14. That's because you want stainless which is typically not magnetic depending on the nickel content
  15. CC I understand where your coming from , I personally don't use Facebook , Snapchat etc..... whatever... and hardly use any app that is on my phone , point being this is the way I am , would rather read a article then watch a video , this is my attraction to forums because of the reading aspect. But even you must know that KJ is about selling as many Kamados as they can , and if you can try and market a more user friendly grill that's what there going to do.These are grills that they are selling at big box stores and bbq dealers. I know you own a couple of KK's but for most they will never know about it till they take there first dip with a product like this. Granted I know that it is a pretty simple task to get one of these grills running , It's not rocket science but can be intimating to many folks who always had a gas grill . I have introduced quite a few people to Kamado grilling experience and cannot believe how they react to the food coming off and saying there next grill purchase will be a Kamado , I don't think all will take the plunge but I also see these products make it more inviting and one day maybe they will be searching out KK website. Just sayin
