  1. Welding gloves https://www.harborfreight.com/welding-gloves-39664.html
  2. Add a Sous Vide to cooking technique. Crank up the temp to 600* for a quick sear. You will always have a prefect steak.
  3. The Big Joe Rotisserie rod diameter is 8mm. The first answer in the Amazon questions is "Der Lochdurchmesser der Aufnahmeplatte (für Q1000) beträgt 9 mm". Translated is: "The hole diameter of the mounting plate (for Q1000) is 9 mm."
  4. FYI - Conair Corporation has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit alleging some of its Cuisinart food processors come with riveted blades that crack over time and cause portions of the blade to detach. If you own a Cuisinart food processing machine, you may be entitled to benefits from the class action settlement. https://topclassactions.com/lawsuit-settlements/lawsuit-news/503351-cuisinart-class-action-filed-massive-blade-recall/

  6. With all brands of charcoal open the bag for 3 weeks before use & this will air out any VOC's & smells.
  7. During your next cook when the KJ is warmed up re-tighten the bands.
  8. https://anovaculinary.com/anova-sous-vide-time-temperature-guide/ Go to recipes and enter "Brisket"

  10. Talk to KJ Hq. and ask them to send you a set of band bolts. If you go to a store to buy them they M8-1.25 coarse thread. The ridges under the head is what locks them into the band.
  11. Wow! If that's the early Christmas prime rib I can't wait to see the Christmas dinner.
  12. Yes you can. But what found is that sometimes the aluminum foil will not hold up. Since I have the room in the Big Joe I started using the 2 qt Dutch oven smoker that Ceramic Chef laid out.
  13. This works great: From CeramicChef I use a 2 Qt lodge cast iron Dutch oven with 4 holes drilled in the BOTTOM. I fill the smoke pot with wood and then fill in the insticial spaces with pellets. I embed the smoke pot into the lump pile directly over the fire. This arrangement injects raw smoke directly down into the fire where all the nasties in the raw smoke are burned and what you end up with is thin blue smoke from the first minute of the smoke. Note that I have a really big kamado. That 2 Qt smoke pot fits just fine but may not fit yours. Try a 1 Qt instead. I've posted the particulars of this smoke pot several times here and using the search box at upper right hand corner of ever page should get you a picture of the pot, how I load it, and what happens to the wood inside over the course of a cook.
  14. Why cover? The bird poop is easier to clean off the ceramic than it is the cover. Mine has been fine uncovered for 4 years in the Florida sun & salt air.
  15. The pan is 14" & each handle adds 1" to each side making it an overall 16".
  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. Use it w/ a glove or tongs/pliers. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Clorox-Citrus-Blend-Disinfecting-Wipes-75-Count-4460001628/100674311
  17. Ash stirring tool + welder's glove + http://www.kickashbasket.com/store/product-detail.php?product_id=43
  18. On Facebook - Kamado Joe Grilling, Smoking and more John Setzler just completed an open lid turkey spin. Lots of good info.
  19. Just placed them up-right w/o cutting. I sold the grill ~5 years ago. Sorry no pictures.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
