    Smokin Stone caught Fire

    The problem with that, is the grease has to go somewhere. I’ve cooked a few different briskets that way and ended up with grease in my ash pan, which is also no good. I’ve turned to aluminum drip pans or high temp cleaning of my deflectors.

    So they did send him the answer. Thanks Ben S.

    New KJ classic II, latch problem

    Did you call Kamado Joe? Did you follow up with them after getting an email that didn’t fix your problem to your satisfaction? Or did you just take a dremel to your $1k grill? Dr Smoke please don’t follow mishmosh example. Please call Kamado Joe. Just my 2 cents.

    Buy the $60 grate, and don’t use it. Use the KAB. A grate you don’t really use will last through numerous bowls.

    Kick ash basket warping.

    I find it extremely difficult to believe that the ash catcher caused anything to crack. Besides isn’t the cure for a cracked base the new multi piece base?

    My latest delivery...

    That's pretty cool looking.

    Thermoworks Smoke Sale

    If you subscribe to Thermoworks email/newsletter, you will get updates as to what’s on sale. It seems to me the thermapens are on some kind of sale pretty regularly.

    Thermoworks Smoke Sale

    Thermoworks is the company. I bought my thermopen in I similar sale, I could not tell what category mine was(refurb, return, demo...) It came with the warranty, and when I had an issue 20 months in they replaced mine-not repaired but replaced. These are being sold by the manufacturer, there is no risk whatsoever.
  10. Those tables are nice, but personally I wouldn't buy a grill based on what table it will fit in. I would buy the grill, and figure the table out after the fact. As St1brew said you can have built, or build your own table. The BGE's are nice grills, but I wouldn't trade my Joe for one, ever. The other thing is there are plenty of crafty people on here that have built tables and modified grills to fit into tables, I'm sure you'd get some ideas once you have a grill. Just my 2 cents.

    Updates on iKamand and KJ Table

    Yeah, just like the joetisserie, the new hinge and the new vent cap. Hype that never materialized.....great things take time. It will happen.

    Pretty sure you just need to let it cool enough to slice, at least that's how I do it. I've got one on the BigJoe now.
  13. Got one today in Colorado Springs. On Walmart's website I had to change locations to get the right price, some stores offered a 50% "pick up" discount. $150 out the door seems pretty good to me.

    Some Bangin' Beef Short Ribs

    What grill did you cook those very fine looking ribs on?

    Joe Jr. Update?

    I think an ash drawer would be a game changer. Cleaning the jr out is a pain in my opinion. It's so much more difficult than the other sizes.
