  1. 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?

    Yeah, I dont have HBO and rarely watch ABC just for the reasons you mention, but that's me. If there is something on ABC I want to watch I record it so I can watch later and zip through the commercials.:-D

    And yet, here you are...

    In my opinion they are obtrusive and they cover content on the top and bottom of the page!

    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.

    Mines been loose from day one and no problems with it. If you don't keep it super clean the top won't pivot open like the daisy wheel on the  cast one does but I just pull the top off and use it that way. But my gasket is thicker than the one in the picture.


    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.

    Everything says its supposed to fit this cooker... without alterations??

    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.

    Using loofliter

    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.

  8. 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?

    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.

    I haven’t had a chance to taste their food, but the pictures look great . The truck has a Mexican theme, so I am thinking tacos, Mexican corn, and other delights.

    Got a food truck near me that uses twin huge green eggs.  Fred’s Franks.   Dude has simple food done right. I admire that guy.
