  1. My second grill was My Big Joe then the 3rd was a Classic Joe then my 4th was a Jr. Now I have a Rec-Tec Pellet grill and yes I find time to use all of them LOL and this is my Wife after I bought a Blackstone
  2. Pizza is good, Add it to BBQ Beans or Franklins Pinto Beans, And one of my favorites is make some Eric's Blue Smoked Cabbage and mix it in Here's Eric's Video but he used Beef Cheeks, Brisket works just as good
  3. It depends on what version you have, If its BJII or III you just need to put on the spacer washer and nut to keep the hinge form opening, If its and older version you will need to tie wrap, Here is a video of John changeing the hinge of an older BigJoe, you could use this for help, This is what you use to lock the hinge on the newer versions, no tie wrap are needed
  4. I have had my Big Joe for 6 years, My Classic and Jr for 4 years and the only one that cracked was my Jr and that was my fault, What I do is use a drip pan to minimize the amount of grease hitting them and I also flip them each cook and most importantly I store them in the grill to prevent any chance of moister hitting them

    Stuck Top Vent

    As much as I liked the new Kontrol Tower I gave up on them, They defiantly took more time and effort to keep them clean and workable, Like John said once all the coating peeled off it was a little easier, however I tossed mine and went with the Smokeware cap which isnt perfect either but much easier to clean
  6. Here is the Spec sheet on the Jr. but it does not have the size of the stand https://blazingembers.com/kamado-joe-jr/
  7. I got one on each of my grills, Big Joe, Classic and Jr. and they work just fine, there easy to clean and dont stick as bad as the KJ Kontrol tower but if you dont take care of them they will lock up too
  8. Personally I have never had to add fuel or wood chunks during a cook before, I strategically place wood chunks that last the whole cook but if you need to add just twist the D&C rack off the basket and left
  9. Mine has one too and tried to adjust the hinge to get rid of it and all I did was open a can of worms LOL, after a couple hours of playing with it i did get it back to where it was so as longs as you dont have a seal problem it wont effect how it cooks and I would leave it alone

    New KJ Questions

    You can contact KJ customer service and tell them and Im sure they will send you some at no charge but it could take awhile or you can by some on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Onlyfire-Replacement-Adhesive-Smokers-Louisiana/dp/B06XR7PZC5/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=kamado+gasket&qid=1588776569&sr=8-8

    New KJ Questions

    I second what Chris said except #3 You need to add more gasket material and that will make it tighter
  12. I also just got a pellet grill, I went with the Rec-Tec 340 for bringing with me camping but since getting to know it I really enjoy the ease of it, I've cooked Chicken, Ribs, Brisket, Pork Butt and lots of side dishes and Im really impressed with it and find myself using my Kamado's less and less but I dont plan on getting rid of them, They will still be my go to for High temp cooks
  13. I also have both and completely agree with you on this
  14. The Stainless Steel hardware is only on the Pro Joe now, they discontinued Stainless Steel on the Big Joe and Classic when they started making Series 2 with the Air Lift Hinge
  15. Yes its okay, Mine has the same thing on it and I have been using it for 4 years with no problems and it has not grown
