  1. Thanks for the compliments. Are you able to order from Amazon without major shipping costs? I found Bomba Rice on there which is a good rice for Paella. You can also use Arborio rice, which is more common, at least where I live. Valencia Rice is the best and Granza is really good but very hard to find. Really just avoid long grain rice at last resort and just watch liquid absorption, they all are different.
  2. If you have any questions about paella, feel free to ask. I have been tweaking mine for years now. It's not authentic, it's supposed to be mostly a rice dish (mixing seafood with chicken is a no no also) but I like meat an mixing the meat up. BTW I always make sangria the night before for my wife, she loves the combo. Good luck. Thank you everyone for the kind words. Oh thanks! I will. I've been reading up on it and I like the mixed, too. I will likely do something like what you did, since it seems to me it's a good blend of flavors - chicken and sausage and shrimp. Yum! When kids aren't eating it, I cut the chicken down a bit and add mussels and clams around when I add the extra batch of chicken stock. Just some more options to play with.

  4. This is my first cooking post, I have been meaning to put something up, I am just real bad and taking pictures and uploading. Anyway a couple of weeks ago I made one of my go to Paella's except this time I was finally able to find actual spanish chorizo instead of using mexican chorizo. I did learn to put it in a little later, instead of right off of the bat with the chicken, it was a little over cooked. Oh well, it still turned out solid. After I browned up the chicken I added green beans, garlic and red/green bell peppers. Then I added the tomatoes and browned those up a bit and added rice with spices (saffron, rosemary, salt and paprika). After I toasted and spread the rice out I added homemade chicken stock, about 4 cups. After the stock was absorbed I added another 4 cups. With about 4 minutes left to cook, I added the shrimp. I pulled the pan covered and let set for 15 minutes.
  5. JJohns, I'm glad everything worked out, keep us updated on some of your cooks. I also agree Eric was great to work with. He went above and beyond,
  6. Here you go: http://www.kamadojoe.com/downloads_public/KJ_SPECS_BIGJOE.pdf Oh sorry for the misunderstanding, Im looking for the Kamado made Big Joe stainless table dimensions.
  7. BTW, does anyone have experience with this cart from BBQGuys? http://www.bbqguys.com/item_name_Stainless-Steel-Cart-For-Kamado-Joe-BigJoe-Ceramic-Grills_path__item_2872432.html, it looks like a nice cart and is fairly wide with the shelfs up at 65in. Thanks again everyone for your help.
  8. Can you list out the dimensions you want measured? I am looking for the width with the shelfs up and the depth. The table I get, I want to make sure I have plenty of work space. Thanks for your help. LargeRedJoe, I have looked all over the Kamado Joe website and online and maybe I am blind, but I don't see them.
  9. I am having trouble finding the dimensions for the table made for the Big Joe, does anyone know what those are? I may have an option of getting a good deal on one but I like having good self space. I just don't know what I would do with the Joe Jr if/when i get that one.
  10. I talked to Eric, the Kamado Joe rep. If you want a classic you will be fine it sounds like, they can get more in if they start running low.
  11. That's a great deal. If I can find that table for $625, I'm game. Unfortunately for me, I doubt I can find a price that low.
  12. Freddy, sorry I don't see a link in your post, are you talking about this table? http://www.firecraft.com/product_print/kamado-joe-bigjoe-stainless-steel-table-bj-sst/kamado-joe. It's $1200 or so from what I see. The table I posted to fabricate is around $500 or so but I was going to look around to see if I can find it cheaper, I'm thinking I can for around $300 or so. Then I wouldn't imagine the fabrication wouldn't be more than $200. I will ask at the road show to see if they can bring one in, thanks for the thought.
  13. Here's a discussion about using a plasma cutter on a table for a BGE: http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1136174/how-to-cut-a-stainless-steel-table And another discussion on SS tables: http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1134183/stainless-steel-table-recommendation-for-our-first-two-eggs ETA: I've been looking into this as well but the cost was driving me back to wood. I don't have little ones running around and so I'm less worried about safety. In any case when I do get a table I plan to place a piece of sheet metal below the Kamado Joe which will then sit on the KJ ceramic feet. Thanks for the links. I was able to track another conversation down with pictures of someone that did what I am thinking of doing. http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/comment/1139292/#Comment_1139292. I thought about doing a wood table and adding aluminum for the top and lower shelf but I don't know how much that would really save me if I can find a good deal on a table. I am not in a hurry so I will keep researching it and thinking about it. Thanks for all of your input and help.
