    Christmas Turkey on the Classic 2 - How big?

    I was around 350-375 and if I remember correctly it was roughly 3.5 hours to complete. Every time I know that I'm surprised with how quickly the bird cooks, as for some reason I'm always expecting 5 hours or so.

    Christmas Turkey on the Classic 2 - How big?

    no Joetisserie here, and I've done Christmas turkeys on our Akorn (and most recently Classic II) for several years now. This year, we put a 23lb bird on the Classic II with no issues. No spatchcocking, etc.... just set him right on the grates and let it go.

    BBQ Chicken on a can

    interesting with having the can empty. I always put something in mine (even if it's just water with some of the dry rub thrown in)... I figure the steam coming out of the can helps keep the bird moist.

    Temperature Controller

    Well I just got a KJ Classic II with an iKamand at a local demo show. I was a bit hesitant with some of the feedback I've been reading about the iKamand (I was leaning towards a Flameboss). I ended up getting the iKamand simply due to price ... it was more than $100 more to get a FlameBoss 200. Today was my first cook using the iKamand and I did ribs. It couldn't have gone smoother. Connected to Wifi no problems and held 225 for 5 hours with no hiccups at all.

    Chimney cleaning

    interesting thought. I personally wouldn't do that as I wouldn't want all that grease and gunk in my dishwasher clogging it up. I've also heard of other folks just hand washing it with some dish soap (at least then you can control where the gunk at the end goes).

    Chimney cleaning

    pretty common topic. I think the general consensus is do a couple high heat cooks and it'll clean it all out no problems (cook more pizza :D)
  9. well that's too bad indeed. I visit the site daily, so it will be missed for sure. If the assumption is correct about this being for financial reasons (unless I missed a note somewhere confirming this), I understand the move to a free platform that has the capability to reach a large audience. Shame though that the chosen platform is not targeted to the demographic that uses Kamados for the most part.

    Uneventful Prime Day

    Yeah I was holding off on buying something on Amazon for Prime day in the hopes that it'd be on sale. No go and now I find myself just searching for something worthwhile so I can feel satisfaction.

    Kamado Big Block at Lowes

    Yup, I grabbed my first 3 bags of KJ lump during this sale. I'll see if all the hype is worth it Lowes also has the KJ Classic I on for $999 for those that are looking.

    The cart is here!

    wow! That's pretty ballsy to price a cart at nearly the same price point as the grill. I was looking forward to the cart, just for interest's sake - but this is ridiculous. Thank you for posting the info though
