  1. Update: 2 years after my last post, here's what went down. I finally received a redesigned hinge for the original Big Joe. It is very well built. Looks similar to the air-lift hinge on the new Joes, but doesn't have that degree of counter-balanced assist. I had a cracked firebox in multiple places (found during cleanout), submitted a claim, and was sent new AMP firebox. Sold my Big Joe. Bought a new Big Joe.
  2. Yep, still waiting. But, still cooks a mean steak! Just don't want to break my hand with it coming down! Sent from my XR6P10 using Tapatalk
  3. Last I checked with Meghan, it's looking like it's pushed back again. This time November is the estimate. #patientlywaiting Sent from my XR6P10 using Tapatalk

  7. I'm getting one Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  8. I have it at that in between point where it's a tradeoff. But, I keep my small children away from it, and watch it closely myself. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  9. The hinge is beefy and impressive looking, however I'm one of the ones with issues. I too can have that sucker tight, and holding up with no problem. But I've had issues with it creeping up in the back when tightened. Holds up great = leaks in the back! I'm on the list for the update, and welcome it...Also, I love my Big Joe!

  10. Any updates on new hinge for Big Joe? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  11. Still waiting on redesigned hinge. I'm kinda in between sealing really good, and holding lid up really good. It's scaring me a bit on the retention. I'm always double checking it. But the seal is plenty good for grilling Temps. Haven't smoked anything in a while..... Sorry I missed this and it's been so long. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  12. Meghan is being very helpful, as always! Looking forward to getting things going with the new hinge.
  13. Oh WOW!!!! Can't wait to see the trim/cut pics, as well as some on/off the grill! Looks great, sir!
  14. Well, thanks to Bobby and John for the updates, and the preparation for a wait....lol. I'm looking forward to the new design, as a need and a want! And, I'm very thankful for the support of the KJ family of products...."just sayin"....!
  15. Congrats on the cool stuff! I'm looking forward to getting a KAB, myself.
  16. I would love to add one of these to my Big Joe! Keep us supplied with drool material, Andy! RM
  17. Thanks so much, Bobby! I appreciate the update. I'll hold off and manage with my hinge issue until then. Hopefully sooner, than later. As I'd said before, my problem is that when tightened to retain the lid upright properly, there is a gap in the back so that the grill doesn't seal well. When loosened, the lid isn't as secure (and scares me as it's only barely holding open) but the grill seals better.....And, I've loved the heck out of my KJ!!! Thanks for all the innovations, and the care to correct issues! RM
  18. I'm having the same issues......I've loved my KJ BJ, but it looks like this is a design issue for some units. If the springs are tightened enough to hold the lid up safely, it jacks up the rear of the lid, thus leaking/not sealing properly in the back. I've always had good communication and help from KJ. Hope they will take care of this issue. I want my BIG JOE back in full operating condition!!! I really hope this is a resolvable issue......
  19. I'm having the same issues......I've loved my KJ BJ, but it looks like this is a design issue for some units. I've always had good communication and help from KJ. This time when I sent an e-mail/service request, I got a reply asking for a pic or video of the issue and a pic of the outside of the grill. I haven't taken the time to work things up yet; crazy schedule, etc. I really hope this is a resolvable issue......
  20. I've opened a ticket, and communicated with Meghan. We'll see what happens next. I need my Big Joe to seal properly and hold the lid up well at the same time... Lol!
  21. Thanks y'all, for the comments. Mewantkj, I did just that yesterday, and when I tightened them, it lifted up again...... Bobby, Meghan, or John...?
  22. Auto correct! I meant "large spring bolts"...
