  1. Seems like John is closing up shop. Let’s hope for a Christmas miracle.
  2. This news breaks my heart. John, your site has been a pleasure.I have met great people on here and in a few instances met up with these folks in the real world. I wish you the best. Thanks for all the great years.
  3. Lowes in Saugus ma has 3 kJ classic 1’s for three hundred something bucks. I think it was around 350.
  4. Slightly longer going in. Getting out the 95 traffic kills me.
  5. Doing great bro. I'm at the Saugus location now.
  6. this was my first winter in Billerica. Billerica winter is nothing in comparison to Worcester winter. Either way, the kamados don’t mind the snow. I love cooking in a blizzard.
  7. Your pastrami looks insane. I too love the katz pastrami but have never tried to do my own. Perhaps I'm intimidated...idk. I would love to see your recipe and techniques posted so that I could maybe plagiarize or tweak it. That pic makes me want to order a sandwich from you right now. Do you diver to billerica Mass?

    Do you like the site to be free...or free of ads? A few ads to keep this site running is no prob at all. In the past I have been more than happy to donate to the cause and would be more than willing to do so again as I am well aware that is an expense as well as a lotta effort to keep this place up and running. You want HBO...gotta pay, want ABC...gonna be ads.
  11. Ben, that link isn’t working for me. good to see you again. Hope all is well. Happy to see you doing this.
  12. Babybackmaniac did some videos on the summit. Search for his videos. Perhaps they could help.
  13. Nope. I inspected it myself. Already sold.
  14. Lowes dedham mass. $435 for the 2 $196 for the 1
  15. One of my favorite eats. Let us know how they come out. I’m drooling.

    Well rats!!

    I think you are talking about the pivot point being loose and AO is talking about the fit to the gasket not being snug enough to prevent the k t from flying off when open all the way.

    Well rats!!

    I'm sorry if you feel I misled you. Perhaps you could send the kontrol tower back for a refund and I will not charge you my typical advisement fee for suggesting you purchase one. I for one am happy with the tower and there are other folks who have added some gasket material to make it work. If that's not your thing...send it back. If it keeps falling off it could cause significant damage so cut your losses.

    Well rats!!

    I think I have heard that folks replacing the top vent with the k t sometimes need to add some felt gasket material to make it fit. I could be mistaken.
  19. It sounds like the issues you have would be fixed with the kontrol tower. Pull the trigger. It can swing out or be pulled out completely for high temps.
  20. I never have used a looflighter. I have used cotton balls in 90% alcohol. Cheap. KJ fire starters. Tumbleweeds. These starters all are pretty much the same. Bury 1 for a low n slow. 3 for high and hot. Light. I leave the dome open the first few minutes. I have used a chimney as well and that’s super fast to high heat, but I don’t recommend as it can cause ash to launch into the sky as you pour, and that could spell disaster. perhaps ditch the looflighter.
  21. Most folks with temp issues have a difficult time keeping it below 250. If the charcoal is burning in more than a tiny spot it’s above 250. Ya sure ya don’t just got a bad thermometer? if it’s not the thermometer you are doing something funky with either air flow or lighting the charcoal. Not a whole lot of moving parts in a clay pot, ya know how u lighting it?
  22. the top vent stays in place. folks will tell you it’s easy to readjust the daisy wheel. They are correct. But multiply that by three thousand cooks and it makes life easier. no rain getting in the top vent while cooking. Has never actually caused me a problem with the daisy wheel....but one thing I don’t have to worry about. the air lift hinge is awesome. Folks will tell you the lid ain’t that heavy...but x 30000 cooks saves time and effort. the gasket is bulletproof. My felt needs to be replaced on the big joe. when the little things are easier it makes for a more enjoyable experience. It is a bigger up front investment, but an investment in happiness is always a good investment. Now, if you plan to use the grill only a few times a year it may not be as big a deal. by the way, a few years ago when they released the classic 2 I was on these boards saying the top vent is not an issue, air lift hinge is not nessicary, replacing cheap felt is pretty easy and who cares about the firebox as it’s under warranty. Then I got one. And I appreciate all the little things it improves. my $0.02.
