  1. I've got this one as an extra already. I'm wondering if I put it on the on the bottom as a deflector, and the divide and conquer above it in the pizza formation I can channel most of the smoke to the point, as a posed to all around?

  2. I smoked a brisket for our annual family X-mas Eve get together. It was a 17 pounder, before trimming (after the trim I'm guessing about 14-15lb) I smoked it on my KJ Classic 1 for 16 hours. After 8hrs I sprayed every 45 minutes for the duration of the cook. It turned out extremely good, and was gone in about 5 minutes after everyone started fixing plates lol. However, I have notes lol one thing I noticed was that the end of the flat was WAY to dry, and I'm not sure how to correct it next time because I can't turn it away from the fire, but I'm wondering if I put a deflector on that side maybe it would help. Also the bark never set properly, as I was cutting up the brisket I kept having the seasoning come off on my hands, any tips? ...maybe next time I won't stay it and see what happens
  3. I'm still using the grate, but I make sure there is plenty of air flow. Now that I'm thinking about it, it could be that I'm simply not adding enough charcoal to the fire box.
  4. I've noticed my KJ Classic 1 struggles to get above 400°, the only way I've been able to get it higher is by having the daisy wheel all the way open and swinging the top over so there is about a 1/4" crack in the vent. Would upgrading to the new style top vent help this, or is it maybe because the grill is still pretty new?
  5. Thanks. Yes this is a great video. I stumbled onto his channel right after I bought my kj.
  6. Hi all, I got the deal of the century on a KJ classic 1, but I'm worried about dropping the lid on accident during a cook. Is there an upgrade I can do to the hinges to keep this from happening? I've read that the air lift hinge for the C 2 and 3 won't fit the C 1. Any help will be appreciated, thanks.
  7. Hello all! I live on the MS Gulf Coast and just purchased my first Kamado grill, it is the Kamado Joe Classic. I've had a lot of experience grilling, but unfortunately a lot of it was on a gas grill, and never on a kamado grill. I plan to spend most of the weekend figuring out the airflow to fuel ratios and just getting used to it in general. I'm planning to smoke a brisket for Christmas with it, so wish me luck lol
