    Kamado K7 Restoration

    i started just like a tile job.. bottom up.. its not a perfect science to putting a flat tile on a round surface. just know your grout job will make up the difference!

    Kamado K7 Restoration

    alot of kamado owners clean the bottom ash out frequently i leave about 2-3 inches in the bottom for insulation seems to help with the cracks they develop.. do same with my fireplace insert in the home. little things make a difference
