  1. If you wrap the wire end of the probe & continue on to the wire with aluminum foil it will help perserve the probe. I wrap about 2" on the wire end of the probe & about 4" - 6" of the wire. This keeps food juices off the wire & back end of the probe. This will help you from getting water near this area since it will stay clean.
  2. I would give them a call because it will be close if it will fit. The fixed ROL are 17" and they just fit the 24" Big Joe with no room for error. The adjustable ROL will shrink to 14" & are 5" wide.
  3. Al, I use the Smoke Ware cap on the top of my Big KJ & it stays open & the bottom vent stays open. No problems with mold & the KJ sits less than 100' from the water.
  4. The problem w/ welding gloves is when you pick up something hot your reaction is it's warm, it's warm, it's warm, it's warm, SOB it's hot. If the leather is damp forget it. However I still wear them because I prefer to have my grill marks on my steaks.
  5. I have done less than 50 low temp cooks using CC's 2 qt smoking pot method. Most have been with hickory. I fill the pot with chunks & back fill the voids with pellets (I have to get rid of them somehow). Every cook has had the best smoke rings ever & the correct amount of smoke taste.
  6. This post has to be the most detailed & informative post. If our KitchenAid has problems I know where to go. Thank you for providing the information.
  7. Is this it? http://www.thermoworks.com/ThermaQ-WiFi-Kit?utm_source=Nl-2017June01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=ThermaQWiFiKit&utm_content=inbox&utm_campaign=June2017-ThermaQ-WiFi-Blue-Launch-cs
  8. Try opening the bag up & leave it open for several weeks. All charcoal absorbs odors and depending on where your charcoal was in the kiln it may have pick up lots of VOC's and this was absorbed into the lump. The bags are lined w/ plastic to keep moisture out but this also keeps VOC's in. I've even had odors in a bag of KJ lump. What I do now is I keep several bags open at all time in a dry place in order to let the VOC's to dissipate.
  9. I spoke to them this afternoon & they said the length is 16.5" & the diameter is 8".
  10. I emailed them to get the length & diameter. No answer as of yet.
  11. Here is a good source for casters: http://www.needcasters.com
  12. Any moisture should be at 212* or less. If the temp. of the moisture was greater than 212* it would be steam. Now the question is will the wings produce enough moisture to keep the string wet? To be on the safe side follow the advice of Beermachine. https://www.bbqguys.com/fire-magic/stainless-steel-flat-rotisserie-basket-3618
  13. When I truss up a whole chicken the cotton butcher twine is not burned off. Temp. is between 350* - 400*.
  14. In order for mine to close properly I have to line up the space between the O & the E over the weld mark on the band below. Also pull the JoeTisserie all the way forward.
  15. Try pulling it forward & rotate the Jotisseri. Mine has to be lined up in a certain spot for it to close.
