    Kamado Joe @ Costco

    I like to stock up on KJ charcoal at their Costco roadshows, but sadly by the time I realized they were at my local Costco last week they had sold out of lump :( I think most of us know you can go to the Costco special events page and search for their show there, but this is a bit of a pain as you need to check multiple stores, and weed through the multitude of vendors you have no interest in. But what I just realized is the Costco web site also has a Kamado Joe vendor page, which just lists the various KJ roadshows going on around the country - much easier and convenient to use! Just wanted to share...

    Lump charcoal

    When I've used RO I've noticed a distinct taste. Not an off taste, just a different taste compared to others I've tried. As others have pointed out it tends to have a lot of dust and slivers to small to use. My favorite is Kamado Joe lump, I load up at the Costco road shows. B&B Oak from Academy Sports is good if you live in the south, worth trying to see if you like it.

    Keep it simple ribeye

    Looks fantastic. I've got a ribeye cap steak I'm looking forward to cooking later this week, I hope it turns out as well.
  4. Yes, me too. Ancient iPhone 5s here. Will upgrade this fall after the new releases. The biggest problem is it's so sloooow...

    New Vision, Best heat shield?

    I purchased a Kamado Joe divide & conquer system for mine. Not only includes the diverters for smoking, but also split grates which I think are a big improvement over the stock Vision grates. I found the stock Vision grates fiddly, and difficult to maneuver, especially when hot.

    Christmas Prime Rib in August!

    If it makes you feel any better, we've had so much rain out east it might as well have been a restriction!
  9. @ckreef I made this sauce last night - great sauce! Thanks for posting.

    Any help with salmon?

    Regardless of how you season the salmon, try cooking them on grill grates. I love the hatch marks, and it's easy to flip using the grill grate spatula.

    Yup. The best I've used.
  12. Try Founders All Day IPA. Great tasting session IPA, seems like a reasonable compromise.
