  1. Table/Stand Ideas for Kamado Joe Junior

    Woe Hey, I just saw this. I don’t see any downsides, I don’t think the stand is designed to hold the JR, but it works. I know you can find pictures online, I don’t have any availabile.
  2. Kamado Pretzels

    I know the theory down pat. I have only ever used baking soda and it works just fine. I have never used lye. It might be easier to apply consistently.
  3. Kamado Pretzels

    Not a pro here, but I know my chemistry. The whole point of the water bath with a basic additive is that it will it will chemically break bonds within the polysugars in the flour. This allows for: 1) better browning 2) different flavor profile, pretzel taste, some sweetness, more complex flavor compared to bread. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, NaHCO3 Lye is a much stronger base.
  4. Kamado Pretzels

    ATK has been my go to.
  5. Fill it Grill it basket and wings

    I am relatively new to the rotisserie thing, but I have no issues with chicken parts in my flat basket.
  6. Did you check brickseek.com to see inventory and price?
  7. Cloud Connected Internet-of-Things Devices

    Basically I think you are right and it is a price we pay for the option/convenience. I try and keep thing simple by only incorporating these types of solutions when they make sense. Ring doorbell /security camera, absolutely ! I don’t need my door locks to work over the net. I am debating a WiFi thermostat... in in the end, if I can, I will keep it simple.
  8. You can use brickseek to find local Walmart’s with the Jrs instock and prices listed. I saw several in Mass earlier today.
  9. Table/Stand Ideas for Kamado Joe Junior

    I can’t argue with that logic.
  10. Table/Stand Ideas for Kamado Joe Junior

    My jr sits in a KJC stand.
  11. How to tell which version Big Joe I have

    Look at the top vent, gasket and hinge. If your Bigjoe has a latch then it is most likely a 2017 model. When did you purchase your Joe? All that being said, I would have no problem buying one and having faith that KJ will take care of you.
  12. KJ customer service less than impressed

    Please reread the term of service you agreed to do that you may understand the standards applied to users.
  13. LEM Jerky Cannon Snack Sticks

    Why can’t you be my neighbor?
  14. It only took 10 years...

    I do the same, but lay the lifter flat.
