  1. Hinge upgrade

    Watkins, your signature says you have a Pit Boss. But if by chance this is in reference to the Big Joe hinge, Bobby Brennan recently published an update on the Kamado Joe Grilling and Smoking Facebook page: :
  2. And saying Currently Unavailable.
  3. Alabama White Sauce

    I've only used AWS as a dressing for chicken but also on sandwiches where I want a peppery kick. A little goes a long way!
  4. Kamado joe big joe parts

    Correct, it's a hinge lock. You need to lock the hinge to remove the dome from its bands. That said, the need to do so is fairly remote unless you have a major failure of the dome or the old hinge. Happy cooking!
  5. Low Cooking Temp Not Browning Meat

    Browning needs a temp of 280 or higher to kick in the Maillard reaction. And 300 or higher is even better. I’m betting that your earlier cooks - at grate level - hit the right temps but this last was just too low. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maillard_reaction
  6. Alabama White Sauce

    Here's Big Bob Gibson's recipe...allegedly. Ingredients 2 cups mayonnaise. 1 cup distilled white vinegar. 1/2 cup apple juice. 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish. 2 teaspoons ground black pepper. 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice. 1 teaspoon salt. 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
  7. Interesting Products Coming from Kamado Joe in 2018

    Here's a post from earlier in this thread which duplicates the FB post.
  8. Customer Service always terrible?

    Have you tried calling? If KJ said you're getting a replacement then you're getting a replacement. Give them a ring...(877) 215-6299
  9. Interesting Products Coming from Kamado Joe in 2018

    Update: The iKamand to release in late January 2018. Here's a portion of what Bobby had to say from the Kamado Joe Grilling and Smoking Facebook page (and you'll find photos there):
  10. My Spatchcocked Turkey.

    Or maybe an old-fashioned electric knife. Haven’t tried it but I will on next bird I cook.
  11. I have a friend who has a Joe Junior but isn't much of a cook. They mostly grill steaks. He's asked me how to best cook a whole chicken in the Junior, and since I don't have one I thought I'd ask the Kamado Guru universe. I'm assuming he'll need the same basics as cooking in a full-size Kamado Joe (brining, rubs, etc.), but any tricks or tips specific to the Junior? TIA! - George
  12. Costco Roadshow Schedule - December 2017

    It’s almost certainly the same as the other shows running right now (I’m in Greensboro NC). Big joe - $1499.99 Classic II - $969.99 joe Junior - $399.99 30 lb charcoal - $21.99 (73 cents a pound) joetisserie - $184.99
  13. Kamado Joe Lid

  14. KJ Classic - $699+tax delivered

    The more the merrier. Welcome to the passion.
  15. Oh Lordy no, not in my Kamado anyway. That's one step away from using lighter fluid.
