    I've got my eye on this as a grill for my in-law's house in Florida. I had been thinking of something lighter (e.g. Akorn) because I'll need to schlep it from a screened patio to an outside sidewalk but this has a lot of appeal, not only because it's lighter than a kamado but also because of the larger cooking surface and the add-on SlōRoller.

     

    I also wonder if accessories made for the 22-inch Weber Kettle will fit this new Joe, such as the Hovergrill or the Rotisserie? And which ones are probably rendered moot by the design of the Kettle Joe, such as the Slow and Sear insert?  

     

    Well, I found a photo....somewhere...that showed the Weber rotisserie on a Kettle Joe, so - asked and answered!

  3. Some more on this from the American Meteor Society.

    More than 400 reports from 3 Canadian Provinces and Montana (USA)
    The AMS received more than 400 reports so far about a morning fireball event that occurred over Alberta, Canada on February 22, 2021 around 6:23am MST (13:23 Universal Time). The AMS #2021-978 event was mainly seen from the Canadian province of Alberta, but was also visible from British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Montana (USA). The computer generated trajectory from the list of current witnesses, indicates a short path just north of Edmonton, Alberta.

     

  4. In that case the Classic 2 is the better Value. You’ll get the air lift hinge, new fire box, new gasket and the divide and conquer rack system. Plus any accessories you bought will still fit. 
     

    if you plan to put the new Joe in your current table you may need to raise the grill to allow for the larger hinge.

    @LargeRedJoe yup... if you close the top gent all the way down and fire up a controller, the charcoal will burn up in a hurry, all the heat will exit from the same path as the incoming air, and the top portion of the grill will never get good and hot.

    And yup....most of my charcoal was gone, about 80% and I started with a fairly full basket. It was also cheap coal so that may have played a role. 

  6. I would upgrade to the Big Joe 2 to gain more horizontal cooking surface. The slo roller is a nice addition but i would trade that for surface area. I know it would cost

    more than your other stated options but not much more than the Classic 3. 
     

    Of course if you want to repurpose your table then this may not work. 

  7. My second shingles vaccination had me thinking that I was getting COVID. Felt like crud for two days. 
     

    in Georgia the revised plan is to include everyone 65 and older in the first cohort along with health care workers and first responders. The new plan starts on Monday but still no specifics on how to get the darned thing.

    It is a lot of time and work but I don't have anywhere near 2-3 hours editing time in each of these videos.  Once I have the video shot, I rarely ever spend more than about 45 minutes in post processing and rendering the finished video file. These guys who shoot with multiple cameras from multiple angles spend a lot more time in production than I do.  Those parts of production make for a more visually appealing presentation but it costs a LOT more in equipment and time to make it happen.  My video production is minimalist.  

    Yeah, but it works. Good stuff. 

  9. That is a really weird quality control issue. Prior to shipping the petals are firmly snugged into form-fitted Styrofoam packing material and then placed inside the grill. It means someone either a) didn't pack a petal or b) removed one petal before the crate left the factory (broken, chipped, whatever). IOW that gap in the styrofoam would / should have been visible. 

     

    You can try to nudge KJ to send a complete firebox; those may be in stock vs. a single petal. But I'm just spitballing...
