  1. As an extra grip point the brackets are Ok but the primary lift points should be the hinge and vent. And of course make sure the band is snug and bolts tightened.
  2. I assume the slo roller was removed for the pizza cook? Were the deflectors in the lowest position? (That can produce a lower dome temp even full open). Higher? Highest?
  3. That makes sense. I had not seen any KJs in any nearby Lowe’s so I reckoned they had quit carrying the product line. But come to think of it I did see one on display at a Lowe’s near Tampa.
  4. It’s probably inventory left over from when Lowe’s first started selling KJ in its stores. I’m guessing it was about $750?
  5. You might try asking on the KJ Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/500015733460665/?ref=share
  6. Well it was....OK. I think my yeast was too old since the crust ended up too dense and it never properly rose. Live and learn. Still darned tasty though. IMG_2206.MOV
  7. Well I don’t have a Lloyd pan but I do have an 18 x 12 monster that my wife found somewhere. So tonight we’re trying the Detroit Pepperoni pizza. The dough is in the fridge and coming out soon and then the dimpling and panning process will begin. Cutting the cheese into tiny cubes was a minor pain...but let’s see how it turns out. Unfortunately the pan size will keep it out of the Kamado.
  8. Just. curious but what temp did you reach before loading the pizza? Did the dough have much or any sugar?
  9. May be too late but I’d recommend using a preheated pizza stone or deflector. And if possible elevate the pan above the stone with another grate or small balled up pieces of foil to create an air gap.
  10. Recipes could be tagged as quick or fast or similar. Then search for the tags. But doing this retroactively will be tough. Going forward is fine but folks would need to apply the tags when they post a recipe.
  11. Wow, great-looking crust in that closeup image!
  12. That looks like a class-action fishing site. “”Hey you! Do you have this complaint too? Join our lawsuit!” Only the lawyers will see any money, especially on a cheap consumable product like wood pellets and which haven’t done any harm to anyone.
  13. Costco and KJ will only bring in limited inventory; grills, charcoal and joetisseries.
  14. It was a deal done last year so it’s kinda old news. Bobby Brennan, the founder of KJ, is now CEO of both companies. So yes, still owned by the family but the equity mix has changed. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/dominus-capital-invests-in-kamado-joe-300717060.html
  15. KJ merged with Masterbuilt, also family-owned. KJ recently consolidated warehouses with MB in Columbus, swapping 50,000 square feet for 150,000 square feet - and not leased. Customer Support for the various product lines is merging and training is going on. My expectation is that support will continue as before and this gives KJ the opportunity for more product development. All in all a good move in my totally useless opinion.
