  1. Snow Smoking

    Grilling is a year round thing in my home. Smoking some chickens for the game today.
  2. Joe JR efficient for my goals?

  3. Joe JR efficient for my goals?

    I have a classic and a Jr. I love my Jr. for quick cooks. You can get quite a bit of food on it with a rack extension and some creativity. It works great for Smoking Salmon and has the perfect spot for my probe transmitter right on the back. The best part of about the Jr is I can take it anywhere. It's been to the park, camping, even an outdoor concert. It cools down quickly using the Kick Ash basket. I just pull out the coals and dump them in a bucket and quench it with water. 15 minutes later it's cool enough to load up on the truck. It's my summer buddy for sure. My only regret is not buying one earlier so I could have gotten it in Black before KJ stopped making them in Black.
  4. IKamand

    I'm interested in how it works. I'm using a different product now.
  5. Kontrol Tower Vent Cap Too Large for my Big Joe?

    More gasket and your good to go!!
  6. kontrol tower top vent paint/coating issue

    Just that quick they are shipping me out a new cap! I can't complain about the customer service with KJ. It may take some time to get what you need, but they are willing to support their product 100% Can't wait to buy my Big Joe in 2018.
  7. kontrol tower top vent paint/coating issue

    Yeah, the paint issue continue. Submitted claim today.
  8. Paint peeling on vent & unable to maintain temp

    I have a BBQ guru to keep those temps locked in all night long. Love it. Just gives me more confidence. Before I got it I would get spikes from time to time but it stayed really consistent. 90% of the time.
  9. Love New Fire, BUT!

    I clean at the beginning of the spring once a year. I find myself doing turkeys and brisket more in the cooler months. Don't need a lot of airflow for low temp cooks. The new design is a bit more challenging to assemble so that might stop me from doing it more often.
  10. 2017 big Joe ii owners please help me decide

    New hinge or not. The grill is awesome.
  11. Joe's at Lowe's

    Price. That's why. That grill was the most expensive grill in the entire store. The akorn was right next to it at a fraction of the price. Folks will walk in and not understand the value you are getting for the price, and no one in the store is knowledgeable enough to tell customers the difference. People will grab the cheapest thing they can grab and bounce. I'm going to keep an eye out. If that G2 classic goes on sale south of $1000 bucks I'm snatching it for my dad.
  12. Joe's at Lowe's

    Yep, I was at the East Market St location in York. How did you look that up?
  13. Joe's at Lowe's

    Walked into Lowe's today and found this. Didn't know they carried them.
  14. Two Racks of Ribs on the Joe Junior

  15. Kamado joe jr first timer

    I have a family of 4 and find myself cooking the protein on the grill most of the time. The Jr works great. Case in point. Chicken thighs tonight right off the Jr.
