    a great read and an inspiring story for sure! Gives hope to us other canadians that we'll find a steal like you Thanks for sharing your project!

    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

    Breakfast Time

    looks great! I've never made soft boiled, but I'm tempted to try it now
  4. yeah and with the conversion to pay that in USD and get it shipped here - I believe it'd be over $100 CAD.

    Finally working on my Kamado Table

    looks really nice! Also looks like there's a space for a little friend next to big joe?

    Best Price kamado joe bj

    I've been looking for a while as well. I think that Milanista has the right idea in checking with Lowes. Although be wary as many of their promotions (including the one that's on now for the save the tax - exclude Kamado Joe products... they bury that in the fine print). There are however some of the promotions that do apply, you just have to keep your eyes peeled each week. Unless you can find a local dealer that can beat the lowes pricing. I haven't been able to find any dealers in Niagara Falls area, so I just check Lowes, personally.

    My goodness we're touchy! You are correct in your first statement... it's just a thought Don't read too much into it. I enjoy John's reviews. I have no problem with his reviews. Yes, I will still view them even if I have a "pre-determined notion about them" I didn't bash the product at all, read the post for what it's worth... that's all. I look forward to buying a KJ product one day. I'm interested in this product, but just because I think somebody is going to post positive thoughts doesn't mean that I'm ignorant and want to bash the product lol. Relax

    I'd imagine that the opinion will be positive. I can't see someone who is as close to KJ as John, posting negative comments publicly - regardless of what stage of a "prototype", "retail unit", etc. this product may be.
  11. wow, nice piece of meat and very well done with the cook!

    Thanksgiving Turkey Practice

    looks like a delicious bird you've got there! I always tell myself I should do a practice bird before Christmas, but I never do and I'm always nervous on the big day
  13. I don't see why you'd have any problems with opening the lid a tad to fit your hand in there. Nice looking start btw - that's a monster table.

    Joe's at Lowe's

    The lowes here in Niagara Falls carries the KJ lineup. I've noticed recently that they've started stocking a ton more accessories. I'm still yearning for my KJ, but until the Akorn dies... I'll just window shop

    Baking directly on the inside off a kamado

    Sure - it's easily done. With the stable temp capability, you just get it to the temp you need, throw your dough in and let it bake just like a "normal oven". There's a whole forum here on it (Pizza and baking). After all - making a pizza on your manado is baking dough... just really quickly and with delicious toppings :D Baking things right on your grill and not using a stone should still work I suppose. I think most people use a stone for even heat across your dough and direct flame deflection as you wouldn't typically want large flames licking your loaf of bread, etc. Baking things on your Joe with or without a stone should pose no threat of cracking your unit - you'll be fine.
