    The pan is 14" & each handle adds 1" to each side making it an overall 16".

    Soak it in this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/ZEP-128-oz-Heavy-Duty-Citrus-Degreaser-ZUCIT128/100676344 After it's clean use these to clean the top a couple of times while cooking & again after the cook.

  5. On Facebook - Kamado Joe Grilling, Smoking and more John Setzler just completed an open lid turkey spin. Lots of good info.
  6. Wings at the Beach

    Wow! First of many great cooks.
  7. Ceramic Fire Bowl

    Just placed them up-right w/o cutting. I sold the grill ~5 years ago. Sorry no pictures.
  8. Ceramic Fire Bowl

    Yes. I added the bricks to my Acorn & cooked that way for about 3 years until I sold the Akorn. I found that leaning the fire bricks against the bowl helped stable the temperature since it acted as a heat sink.
  9. Ceramic Fire Bowl

    If you want some extra heat retention line the fire bowl fire bricks. Use the ones that have the half the thickness (called splits) and stand them upright around the fire bowl. You can find them at home improvement stores. At the brick yards they are ~ $1.00 - $1.50 a brick. This is what they look like - https://jet.com/product/detail/8217f242d2744862b0e437d9058508d8?jcmp=pla:ggl:nj_dur_gen_home_decor_a3:home_decor_home_accents_fireplace_accessories_a3:na:PLA_784505246_42602302273_pla-330016559514_c:na:na:na:2PLA15&code=PLA15&pid=kenshoo_int&c=784505246&is_retargeting=true&clickid=a145b293-a383-4517-b3a8-97c99510ed88&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIxJrnt6rD1wIVEJJpCh1jZgD7EAQYBSABEgK6OfD_BwE
  10. Weight of Classic II?

    Go to Home Depot get a sheet of plywood & have them cut the sheet length wise & across. You will then four 2' x 4' pieces of plywood to work with.
  11. Just decided I'm going spatchcock because I am going to need the room to cook other stuff on the expander. I'm going to also cube up & cook butternut squash.
  12. Dome adjustment

  13. New Gasket vs. Felt Gasket for Classic

  14. New Gasket vs. Felt Gasket for Classic

    Here is an option: http://www.high-que.com/Gold-Standard-High-Heat-Gasket-with-Adhesive-for-Kamado-Joe-Classic-with-Kevlar-and-Nomex_p_33.html
  15. Turkey practice

    We end up cooking 2 birds for Thanksgiving. One on the Big Joe & one in the oven. The oven one is a requirement of the wife & the one on the grill is wanted by the rest of the family & guests. I will tell you this at the end of the day the turkey that was cooked on the Big Joe is picked entirely clean. The turkey from the oven is mostly eaten as leftovers for the week. One key with chicken & turkey is not add any wood chunks because it may be too strong for many people.
