  1. Anyone noticed the rabbeted joints? Didn’t know that KJs fireboxes have that feature & doesn’t make sense since the panels want to fall outward. Seems to me like the OP has packed the gap to keep the firebox in place.
  2. My guess would be that the side facing the coals will burn off the seasoning during each use so seasoning may be useless. I would just oil it after every use to help with rust.
  3. You can use lye, but that's some nasty stuff.
  4. I left my KJ out in the back yard with a cover over the last NE winter. No problem at all. I probably would have cooked on it but after cleaning snow off a 100 foot driveway, I can't get motivated to clean off a 500 SF patio so unless the snow all melts off which it did not do much of last year I just cook indoors. My advice if you want to cook in the winter is to heat the Kamado up slowly and make sure you keep the cover on when not using to keep moisture off the ceramics.
  5. I just looked up Keystone BBQ and it has pictures with an address on the wall of 4034 E Newport Road. When you look up that address, it's someone's house so just bear in mind this is not a Brick & Mortar store you are dealing with. Probably why they want you to deal with KJ direct.
  6. It is basically the end cut off the full rack of ribs to get a St. Louis style rack of ribs. I use to buy these & cut them up to make steam ribs in black bean & garlic sauce. The bone I would use for pork stock. I am sure you can just put these on the smoker if you are into spare rib tips but I find the ends are a bit tougher than the meat between the bones.
  7. Just get a $20 lodge 10-1/4" skillet. It should fit in the KJ.
  8. Yes, I knew that but if anodizing is an option they should just make the entire thing aluminum.
  9. Wow, that's a lot of grease if those got filled. Good luck with the cleaning.
  10. Not for nothing, but many years ago I made a post on a headphone forum regarding a new headphone which was having issues with wood cups. The wood cups were made in a humid part of the world and shipped around the world. Obviously the grade of wood available in that country & the change in humidity cause a lot of Q&A issues. My suggestion was to go the a polymer cup to move his business forward instead of wasting all his resources responding to cracked wood cups. 3 months later the product line went to all polymer cups & his business is now selling headphones anywhere from a few $300 to $2,000. At the risk of cutting myself out of a commission again,... I am going to suggest that KJ at least look at anodizing their aluminum products as the finish is more durable.
  11. Are you talking about the holes in the bottom plate or the sides of the fire box? If you are talking about the holes in the bottom plate I would just take the plate out & get a charcoal basket. The basket will function better in the long run & allow you to to get the air flow for a burn out. Put the steel plate in to burn the grease off that also.
  12. I do the same and if the stuff is really baked on I used the KJ charcoal ash tool to lightly scrape the grates, the deflectors & the soap stone. Works fine as far as I am concerned.
  13. Why not buy feet for the Kamado & build a brick base to raise it to the correct height for yourself? https://www.amazon.com/VANKEY-Ceramic-Kamado-Accessories-Charcoal/dp/B08P2M6D5Y/ref=asc_df_B08P2M6D5Y/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=475826227160&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=15642956182574196553&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9004198&hvtargid=pla-1137713413117&psc=1 Have you also thought about how you are gong to open & close the lid safely?
  14. You can look here. Acts as a pizza stone also so a 2 for 1. https://soapstoneproducts.com/products/soapstone-pizza-stone-3-4-thick?variant=28176117858409 I hope I didn't violate any forum rules by posting this....
  15. Yes people do strange things all the time & there's no need to disparage them just because we don't understand why they do what they do.
