  1. I am a rank amateur and have now done1 of the 2 turkeys being served for the family Christmas 2 years in a row in my Kamado. Both years mine got more positive comments than the traditional one that was done in the oven, although, both were very good. I did not brine or do anything to the bird other then a bit of wood in the coals for smoke. The meat was very moist and flavorful both times.
  2. If it was me I would be comparing all 3 units in the boiling water.
  3. I would be very upset at having 2 quite expensive temperature tools measuring so far apart from one another. I think that is the real point here, but I could be wrong.
  4. I had several bags of Dragon's Breath that would not get over 500 degrees. It was also very slow to get up to that temperature. It took me quite a while to figure out that it was the charcoal that was the problem and not something else. I was never so glad to see the end of something as I was that charcoal.
  5. I have the old style, it did stick quite strongly when cold (cleaning helped but was temporary and I stopped) but eventually the sticking stopped. I can now open it when cold with no trouble.
  6. You realize that you are replying to a thread with the last post that was in June 2017, right?
  7. In fairness, I should also add that when I asked if the battery was replaceable I got the following reply; " No it is not, however if you run into issues before then, we will troubleshoot with you and replace it if we are unable to get you up and running!" For what it is worth.
  8. When you are in the excitement stage after receiving your new Kamado, it is really easy to buy loads of stuff that seem awesome and necessary but once the novelty wears off you realize you do not use or need. I would highly recommend not to buy anything until you cook for a while and see how it goes. YMMV
  9. Like most average consumers I don't know enough about battery technology to understand that claim as being over rated.
  10. I sent a second request using the Contact form on their web site and have now received a reply. They said that they did not receive my initial inquiry. They also said that the probe does have an internal battery that is rated for 1000+ re-charges. This battery is not replaceable. Now we know.
