  1. awesome good choice. i bought my son an akorn Jr. it's perfect for two .. adding him to the addiction was my primary objective.
  2. if you can lift on a wooden pallet... use ratchet straps to secure it down .. these K,s are heavy 300 lbs + good luck
  3. doing the same but in the morning for an afternoon get together ... looks like a nicely trimmed brisket ! angus choice is pretty darn close to prime .... IMO it will be great!
  4. first of many ... yum
  5. just an update to this K-7.... 3 years and still performing well, the party Q- is an excellent way to maintain temps on this old kamado . good luck on your restoration project.................
  6. Cotton balls soaked in denatured or isopropyl alcohol are my go to lighter..an most i know outside this website ,, use this without question! mason jar with a lid / cotton balls add alcohol....
  7. Today marks 6 weeks without any sugar. Running 5 miles each day before breakfast. I've stopped eating meat, dairy, flour too. No caffeine. The change in my body has already been fantastic! I feel great! Zero alcohol! Eating a healthy diet that is completely vegan, gluten-free, caffeine-free and sugar-free. And working out for 2 hours every day! I don't know whose status this is, but I was really proud of them so I decided to copy and paste it!
  8. i will have a KK someday the ultimate Kamado for it's functions and " what's that awesome looking egg on you patio !"
  9. size matters in the Kamado world . the aesthetics warranty and overall "does this Kamado pull you to use it more "
  10. sorry it's my nature .. I'm a commercial construction superintendent.. I fix problems you didn't know you had.. by the way i really enjoy your videos
  11. the whole leak at the lid/door is a discussion ive noticed in every product forum from to kamados to stickburners and electric smokers... mine leaks around the lid ? but it doesnt effect temperature control , or make it take off like a rocket like it would if it was the lowervent .. I would consider this an issue . if we all had our cookers indoors and vented out ..
  12. mold wont grow on an heated kamado i use mine 3-4 times a week.... so .. no
  13. yes .... the cotton ball alcohol method is what i use/ ultra clean/ inexpensive
  14. i use the emptied and cleaned sealed buckets that granular chlorine for my pool come in. to store wood chunks /splits wood stays dry and fresh
  15. i prefer to take off the steak.... leave lid open .. this gets the fire heated and then sear with flames flipping often .. till i like the look of my steak!
