    JayhawkPharmer got a reaction from S@D in My Hodge-Podge Pizza WFO Build   
    and... I'm skipping over some of the tweaks and changes that I did from seeing these two inside/above shots in this previous post.  I trimmed down the edges of the two side openings, to allow more air flow... And I raised the pizza stone up a bit.  In search of the perfect mix of stone heat and "dome" heat.

    I count 2 veggies and 2 proteins. That's basically healthy food where I come from! In a study I just made up, Paprika is packed full of antioxidants as well, we all know the important role antioxidants play in a healthy diet. Looks great though, will have to try it for sure.

    JayhawkPharmer got a reaction from Smoque'n in Carson Rodizio on a PK Grill Spinnig some Sausage and Chcken   
    Well, I never could get my video of my Rockin Rodizio RIB-a-Palooza from last weekend to load on here, so I took some still shots today... Nothing fancy, at all... Just some boneless/skinless chicken beasts with some rub, no oil, no basting, no sauce... And some Italian sausages. Chicken turned out really well. I wanted a base starting point to see how they do "dry" with just the rub. Turned out well. The outside layer was nice (would be much better wth the skin on) and could try some basting or finishing glaze next time. I folded/bent the sausages into C-shape like I saw on one of Andy's posts. They spun like a charm that way. I wasn't sure how solid they'd stay, but it worked perfectly.
    The PK Grill is really a perfect match for the Carson Rodizio. Size and shape and logistics all work well. When I was putting the PK Grill together, I intentionally put the bottom shelf brackets on upside-down. This way gives you an extra 5-6 inches of clearance between the shelf and the bottom of grill. Why do this? It gives you enough space to store the whole Rodizio unit under the grill. The picture with the lid of the PK closed shows the Rodizio on its side on the lower shelf. I ordered a cover for the PK and will probably put the Rodizio controller unit in a Tupperware tub, but this way my dedicated Rodizio Grill Station will all be covered by the PK Grill cover.

    Finally got a couple decent book shelves and started to organize my books.  Vast majority are BBQ/Smoking/Grilling, but also have some general all-inclusive books, some specific food books (pizza, bread/etc), and some specific cooking method books (sous vide, instant-pot, air fryer, etc).  Including a small stack of really small ones, I think there are 99 books here, and most likely a few more floating around the house.  Stack of ten Kamado books, but the top two are better than all of the others combined.  Anyway....if there are any egregious omissions from my library, I'd be interested to add them.  Have plenty of shelf space there to grow!

    Thanks.  Thought the Leg Lamp worked there pretty well.  It's on a floor speaker, and the sub-woofer is just to the left, with an outdoor animatronic pink flamingo on it.  Thought the flamingo might be sensory overload, especially with the Scooby Doo FatHeads on the same wall. . Have a bunch of iron pigs and stuff to add too, but haven't dug them out yet.

    If you have a good local library, you can borrow a page from my book.  Take anything you are interested in out of the library.  Only purchase the books you really like. This saves major $$$ for lump and food.

    I really, really, really wish I could've found 2 people to go in on the 3 for $1,200 deal that they had going.  Now that they're "pre-selling" some for November delivery, the 'package' deal is missing a lot of stuff...  For $638 right now, I could order one... But then still need to purchase the Gas Burner and Cover.  Could manage just fine without any of the other swag that came with the original deal.  That would put me well over $700 for the "quad-fueled" unit with a cover.

    This area appears to have broken completely through, and sloppily glued back together.  Might be OK to use as is, but i wouldnt mess with it unless you knew you had a replacement part coming as soon as it is registered.

    I've  never hear of a 'ceramic repair kit'... Let alone a company recommending and sending that in lieu of just replacing the part.  Being on the edge of the bowl like that, I can't imagine that holding up any amount of time.  I'd wait another month and buy a perfect new one for $300-350.  If you get confirmation that Vision will REPLACE the damaged bowl and would have full warranty, then $200 might be decent.  I just wouldn't want to go through the trouble.

    JayhawkPharmer got a reaction from KismetKamado in American made PK grill / smoker   
    I have one of the "Classic" PK's and like it quite a bit.  They're made in Arkansas, and fairly popular in the Midwest.  The aluminum is really thick and durable on the original/classic design.  I used mine for my Carson Rodizio, but have since gotten a second Carson, as well as a new charcoal rig to use both Rodizio's on.  Don't want to really "speak for" Andy, but to paraphrase, he loves his classic PK's... Has one of the silver and one of the black, but he seemed to think the new PK360 was pretty overpriced.  He didn't want any part of them when they came out, primarily because of the price.
     
    I love the look of the PK360.  They are expensive, and I have not seen one in person, but I would imagine that it would be "worth" the investment.  I got an email from them the other day, with a $100 OFF coupon, so the basic rig with the black side shelves would be $699 delivered (normally $799...). Free shipping... and outside of Arkansas, you wouldn't pay sales tax.  I think there's about ten days left on the coupon/sale, but I probably won't pull the trigger.  For me, that "kit" would be essentially all I would need/want, except for a cover.  Their covers are expensive as well, two different options.
     
    I'd still really like to get a KBQ K-60 (or whatever the Karubeque model is), and it's about double the price of this.  I just bought a pretty sweet gun (DPMS-Oracle-308) so dipped into the mad-money for that... And really want to get a Mossberg Shockwave soon, so that's another 4-bills out of pocket.  The struggle is real.
     
    Oh yeah.... Also need to get a Big JoeTisserie as well... That might be slightly ahead of the Shockwave on the wish-list.

    I like books.  I buy a lot of BBQ/smoking/Kamado/meat/pizza/etc... books.  Some might say I buy too many.  I usually enjoy them and often learn something.  I finally found one that I cannot recommend on any level.  It was cheap, like $6-7-ish... but not even worth that.  No pictures, other than cover.  Cover has a pic of a big red KJ, but definitely no affiliation to any company in the writing.  Essentially a 'cookbook' of normal not creative plain recipes.  First part has a questionable(at best) "history" of the Kamado in the US market.  Some really basic(many incorrect) operating tips.  I would not recommend this to any GURU or beginner.  It would be an insult to the Guru level of knowledge and misinform the beginner.  I don't intend for this to be a negative "bashing" review, but more of a PSA to prevent any of my book-loving people on here from wasting their money and being disappointed.

    I think you're correct on the family tree.  But I'm pretty sure this one already has the deflector.  I did a LOT of reading online.
     
    The smoker weighs 200 pounds.  So I'm assuming it's relatively thick.  I got a gasket for the door, and some silicone to seal up some of the gaps based on what I read.
     
    I also found a guy on craigslist where I can get a load of hickory logs, so I'm SUPER excited to get this thing put together this weekend!!!!

    It's on sale for $89 at my Walmart as they close out grills & smokers.  I was always curious about offsets, so I figured this was my chance.  
     
    I see some mods online for basically making sure the seals are good.  Does anyone have this?  Anyone use this?  Anyone know mods that I should try?  
     
    Anyone use any vertical offsets?  What am I getting myself in for?????
