  1. I have a fireboard thermometer and temp controller and I'm a big fan of it. It works off of bluetooth and wifi and has been a great improvement for me. I also have a RecTec Stampede pellet pooper and my fireboard is just about as steady as my rec tec.
  2. Looks delicious! I know what i'm making this weekend
  3. Turkey can get oversmoked in a hurry. I wouldn't add any smoking wood but I think you'll be fine at 275. I would say it'd be 20-25 minutes per pound at 275, Don't forget your rest period.
  4. Aaron has made a few briskets. I follow his trimming, and you will probably get an idea that however long it takes is how long it takes.
  5. I think since time is such a consideration, I would put it on the night before. for brisket I'll usually put it on around 9pm the night before I want to eat it so that I can make sure it's had enough time to cook as well as having enough time to rest. You can't forget the rest period, in my mind it's equally as important.
  6. Charcoal is too cheap to worry about it with the Dojoe. I typically just make a pizza for my wife and my self and then I just let it do it's thing. The next day I'll have clean heat deflectors and an empty ash basket. It makes for a good time to shop vac the ash and have a nice clean grill for the next cook. I have yet to try the Tri Tip but it's on my list. John, I do have a temp control system that I enjoy, I also have a rectec for dedicated low and slow now so the swiss army knife (Kamado Joe) doesn't get as much of a workout on the low and slows.
  7. I have a Kick Ash Basket and I love it. Makes cleanup a breeze and you don't have a ton of the little trash pieces in there after a cook. I struggled for a bit at first on long cooks because I ran out of coal quickly, I then learned the importance of good lump vs bad lump. I switched to KJ lump and Fogo and I haven't had an issues since.
  8. My buddies father in law got a BGE, and passed his Weber Performer to my buddy. We were all crazy about it and within a few weeks a big group of us had performers. About 2 years later I got an Akorn to try out kamado cooking and I was hooked. 2 years later I saw the Kamado Joe at Costco and went home with a Classic 2. I love the thing, and I'd honestly only cook on it if I had the space.
  9. An update to this. I got in touch with fireboard and they recommended an adapter from a third party for their fan, I’m assuming it’s who actually makes the fan. Anyway after adding it to my fan and installing it in the grill this morning it works like a charm. So much easier than before. Happy customer here.
  10. Is this really that much of an improvement over the KAB or the Kamado Joe basket? I like the handles but I honestly don't think you will get rid of as many of the smaller junk pieces of lump as you can with the KAB.
  11. I have them now, the picture is before they arrived.
  12. I agree, I'm going to a buddies house this weekend to see his new Rec Tec Stampede. I've already told my wife that there's a good chance I'm going to have to add that to the porch. She asked if that meant I was selling my Joe? I tried really hard not to laugh.
  13. I've been a lurker since 2013 when I got my Weber Performer. Spent more time when I got my Akorn, and check the site almost daily with my Kamado Joe Classic 2. Very thankful for all the info here. I'm originally from Mount Airy, NC and an App State grad. Lived in Charleston, SC, Philadelphia, PA, Tampa, FL, and now back in Charleston, SC and for good this time... hopefully. I really enjoy chasing redfish on the fly rod, working off my BBQ at crossfit, and tinkering with whatever project I can find around the house. Thanks for letting me join the community. Todd
  14. @Murphy-in-gtown I like that system, I'm thinking of something very similar but on the inside of my cabinet. I believe i can get two half moons on each wall of the cabinet and the door. then I'll have room inside for the rings and pizza stone. I'll take some pictures after I figure it all out. AppState has a bye week so Saturday will be spent working on the grill table with the game in the background.
  15. I made two grill purchases last night that may have completed my grill accessories.. So here's my setup. Kamado Joe Classic 2 Kick Ash Basket Custom Built Grill table Fireboard with Temp Controller and Fan Divide and conquer 2 Stainless Steel Standard Grates 2 Heat Deflectors 2 Cast Iron Grates 1 Cast Iron Reversible Griddle 1 Stainless Steel Laser Cut Grate JoeTisserie DoJoe And as of last night I got the Grill Expander and the Soapstone grate. What am I missing? Here is my grill table. Currently i'm storing my charcoal, dojoe, and Joetisserie in the cabinet on the left and all of the other things in the drawer. I'm going to change things up this weekend though, since the weight of the accessories on the drawer is causing issue. I'll be adding a storage system for the half moons in the cabinet and re-do the drawer to have plastic totes and just empty my coal in there. So how do you store your accessories?
