  1. I have one and yes you can but you will need a ash basket with handles to rest the heat deflector on which will allow you to put the main grate at the fire ring level then the top grate is useable other wise you will only have an inch or so of useable space. hers a few picks of mine
  2. IMO the D&C is awesome I use the 2 level cooking setup on all cooks other then when I smoking low & slow or High heat Pizza Cooks, It allows you to do all in one cooks if used right.
  3. I had that happen to the bolts on the handle on my classic and the way i got it to tighten was with vice grips, I clamped it on the nut and pulled out as i was tightening it and that worked
  4. No, not without modifications, There are pins on the bands that line up with the base and dome that has a hole in the front and a base has a slot in the back for the pins, Curious though, Why the need to rotate
  5. When I installed mine I was also replacing the Base so I needed to remove the hinge and bands anyway, When I put it back together it went back the same way so I dont think you need to do any special changes and I did use permatex on the back where the seem is only
  6. I installed the mesh gasket on my Classic one and have had it for over a year now and now issues with the seal, the weight of the dome works just fine, no latch needed IMO
  7. Im not completely positive but its probably the standard rack for the Jr
  8. Very interested on your review of this and looks like your party deck is getting pretty crowded John
  9. I have a 2015 Big Joe and it did not come with a ash tray, I bought this one and it fit just fine https://www.bbqguys.com/kamado-joe/ash-collector-for-bigjoe
  10. Fbov pretty much nailed it, the only thing would be his answer to question 2, I do use the grate to support it for the reasons he explained in his answer to question 4
  11. Here's a few https://www.kamadojoe.com/collections/accessories/products/kamado-joe®-sear-plate https://www.pizza-porta.com/shop/pizza-porta-for-kj-joe-junior https://smokeware.com/collections/grill-grates-fire-grates/products/stacker-and-16-grill-grate-combo?variant=2080092848159 https://ceramicgrillstore.com/collections/kamado-joe-joe-junior-accessories-by-ceramic-grill-store
  12. There's a few out there Smokeware has a swivel system https://smokeware.com/collections/grill-grates-fire-grates/products/stacker-and-16-grill-grate-combo Ceramic Grill Store has a muli level system
  13. The cheapest I have found for the Multi Peace box is at the BBQ Guys https://www.bbqguys.com/kamado-joe/classic-multi-piece-firebox-kj-mpfb23
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Here is the Spec sheet on the Jr. but it does not have the size of the stand https://blazingembers.com/kamado-joe-jr/
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. I second what Chris said except #3 You need to add more gasket material and that will make it tighter
  25. 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
