  1. John, that’s great advice!! I typically have my max fan speed at 50% while cooking and up at 100% to start up the KJ. I will try 5% on my next smoke.
  2. I went the minimalist route. I went and bought a metal rack shelf and fabricated an aluminum bracket to make it all work.
  3. That’s my thoughts as well but I was connected to the office with no issues nor degradation with my IPTV. wondering if there issues with the FB cloud service. I’ll test in a couple days when I make baby back ribs.
  4. I forgot to mention, I added the 3 probe 3-4 hours into the cook. It should up immediately in CHART view but not in the DETAIL view. FB2 knows it’s there but the temperature readings were not displayed until a couple hours later. I will be contacting FB as well.
  5. I’ve been using my FireBoard 2 drive for about 1-1/2 years and recently purchased the Spark. Six hours into my 15lb brisket cook…the Spark lost connectivity with my FireBoard 2 with the fan connected along with 4 probes. At the same time the FB2 also became extremely unresponsive. Since this is the first time I’ve used the Spark with my FB2 in sync mode….just not sure if this was a hiccup. I am curious if others have noticed their FB2 being unresponsive. Thank you!!!
  6. I used to buy the BGE squares too until I found these https://www.rona.ca/en/product/xtraflame-firestarter-wax-and-sawdust-48-pk-417748-01675000 I’m quite sure you can find these in your neck of the woods

    BGE Minimax

    Does the KJ Junior and the BGE mini max have the same size cooking surface?

    BGE Minimax

    What’s the weight of the spatchcock chicken? The BGE minimax looks like the perfect size for smaller cooks and cheaper to run. I have the Kamado Joe Classic 3 but finding I’m only use half of the grill space. Now considering the BGE Minimax or the Kamado Joe Junior to save on lump charcoal for the smaller cooks.
  10. John, Great review! Thank you. I also have the FireBoard 2 Drive. Would you know if the Spark displays the temperature for all 6 probe ports form by FireBoard 2? Thank you! barry
  11. The Spark is a cool add on to any FireBoard. Just leave in on my counter top or desk while I’m working. it’s not always convenient to have the FireBoard.io season while I’m busy working. just my thoughts.
  12. What about calling the credit card company and explain your situation? Send them photos of the damage. They should be able to reverse the charges.
  13. Keystone BBQ Supply is ultimately responsible. They can deal with their shipping company / carrier fir damages. You should never be part of the process. Keystone needs to ship you another one immediately. Shipping damage shouldn’t be deferred to Kamado as a warranty claim. Try calling your credit card company to see if they can reverse the charges.
  14. I bought my drip pans from the local dollar store for a couple dollars each.
  15. I have both a 15” standard and deep dish 1” pizza pan for my Kamado Joe classic. They both work great catching the drippings. I typically use the 1” pan when smoking briskets.
  16. The brisket looks great! I consider dry as a cook you need to toss into a slow cooker to turn in pot roast.
  17. I like to coffee cup holder. Same to assume the heat from the BGE keeps the coffee warm? Thought this thread was more about rain caps. ;)
  18. Water bath is the quickest way. Good luck !
  19. Fireboard.com is runing a Father's Day special.... 2 free competition (standard) or 1 free thermocouple probe.
  20. I’ve contact support through their website for a warrant claim. Customer service has always been responsive by responding the following day
  21. That looks delicious! Are we invited for dinner??
  22. I typically remove the grates from my KJC3 to soak in the sink to loosen up the crud. I will then take a wire brush to scrub clean.....then rinse with clean water. I have yet to find any wires from the brush in the sink strainer.

  24. Wow!! You’ve got it flat lined. Looking at the FB2 graph, you didn’t wrap your brisket.
