  1. I haven't used my daisy wheel in over a year! Was using my Smokeware chimney cap thats why she's a rust ball lol. I sanblasted it yesterday and plant to pait it today with high temp paint. then store it away since I have no use for my daisy wheel/cap.
  2. After playing with the chimney cap it has just the right amount of room for the daisy wheel to fully open. Well everyone is still probably wondering why the fugly “u” shape mail box design. Well after doing various temperature cooks with the Perfect BBQ Tek Chimney Cap I quickly discovered why its shaped this way. I believe the main reason is that its design this way to allow more air flow between vent and cap to better dissipates heats from the hot gases from the ceramic cooker which means the surface of the aluminum doesn’t get scorching hot. At a cooking temp of 700 degree Fahrenheit which I held for 30 minutes the hottest spot I could find on the cap was 75 degree Fahrenheit which is quite impressive. Because I love too compared products side by side I then repeated the same test using the Smokeware Chimney Cap and this cap reached 450 degree Fahrenheit. Beer in mind that the outside ambient air temperature was approximately 50 degrees Fahrenheit while conducting all of these tests. As you can see the Perfect BBQ Tek cap is a lot safer if you actually touch the aluminum by mistake while doing temp adjustments with the upper vent cap. I also have a nice comparison chart of the Smokeware chimney cap vs the Perfect Tek Chimney Cap on the review on my blog.

  3. I have been using mine for a while now and totally love it! The only thing I noticed over time is that it does in fact burn through more lump charcoal but thats minor.
  4. Italian sausages, sweet peppers, mushroom, chicken burgers and regular hamburgers on the grill!
  5. cut the old fire grate in half and use it has divider. Thats what I plan to do with mine. Its just take a little ingenuity.
  6. You don't need charcoal grate with this!
  7. Ferrisnox email chad at chad.romzek@gmail.com and he should be able to tell you if it will fit
  8. oops will go fix it now! one beer too many lol! Good catch!
  9. Well I have now been playing with the Kick Ash Basket for about a week now. Let me tell you prepping the grill before each cook is now actually quite easier and quicker. You just grab the basket by its handles and lift it about 6 inches in the air and give it a few shakes and all the ashes immediately fall underneath the fire box. But you can also shake the basket over a metal garbage can which makes clean up a lot faster. (Safety reminder: It’s very imperative to ensure that the grill is completely extinguished and no ambers are left when removing ashes or cleaning your grill). After shaking the ashes out of the basket you just have to use your ash tool and clean out the ashes from the bottom vent underneath the fire box. After this process you just light your grill and enjoy! After doing a bunch of cooks using the Kick Ash Basket I found that the grill actually lights faster and achieves higher temp faster. Having said this you will have to pay a closer eye to you grill temp since it can creep up on you a lot faster do to the added air flow. Another point that I noticed is that on low and slow cooks it actually uses about 5 to10% more lump charcoal using the Kick Ash Basket which is quite minor and expected. Another huge benefit of using the Kick Ash Basket is that it eliminates the issue of accidentally hitting the fire box and cracking it with the ash removal tool which I seen it happened a few times! It also eliminates the issue of small pieces of lump getting stuck in the fire grate holes. I strongly recommend using the Kick Ash Basket without the fire grate. Some folks were saying on the Egghead forums that the Kick Ash Basket bottom has tendency to warp at high temps. So I decided to ramp up my grill to 1000 degrees F which is beyond what someone would use and held it there for 30 minutes. I did this twice and it showed no sign of warping and the basket showed no sign of heat damage. When the Basket is first used (new) I recommend to bring up grill to 600 degrees F to burn off the coating of the metal for 15 minutes then your good to go.

  10. My review should be completed this weekend! Making a few video testing it takes time! I am waiting 24 hour after each burn to run different test to insure grill is completely cooled. Also I did witness a few of the fire bowl get cracked by people hitting them with the ash tool on the Navy ship. The Canadian Navy has two Kamado Joe per MCDV class of ship.
  11. yes it will changed the number of cracked firebox I seen a few people accidently hitting there fire box by accident with the ash removal tool!
  12. The Canadian Royal oak blue bag is indeed pure garbage!!!!!! Here's what I found in a few bags of it: a few nails lots of rocks cement pieces two piece of metal straping a piece of shingle hard wood use for flooring They basically use scap building material to make thes'e from what I can see! The smoke when you light it up is horrible, and take a while to clear! I will never used there product again! This is why I use Basque Natures Own from costco at $12.50 a bag! That stuff is amazing!
