  1. I live near you, and I have a black Big Joe too I need to sell. No upgrades on mine. I bought it on CL, and soon after bought a new one at Costco. The sales reps, last time I talked to one, said a black Big Joe could get a premium. Good luck. Advertise it locally and see what happens.
  2. I got a Classic II last Black Friday, and the gasket was torn a bit too. Not as bad as your's, but I did not worry about it. Slight bit of rubbing on the inside too.
  3. I was told by the sales dude at the local Roadshow at Costco that the black KJ's are only sold in Australia. Apparently Barbeques Galore wanted a black model, and they got it since they buy so many of them. Just what I was told. https://www.barbequesgalore.com.au/kamado-joe-large-black
  4. Got lucky and my SO was browsing Amazon and they had the Classic II in a Lightning Deal on their front page. It was a super sweet deal that did not last long at all.
  5. Bit on the Amazon deal. So now I have the Kamado Joe Trifecta of the Big Joe, Joe Jr and now a Classic II. Almost considered a Quad, still have a black Big Joe I need to part with. But with just me and the missus, 3 Joe's is plenty enough!
  6. Not sure why you would have 1.5 inches of waste on at least one end. Just the cut the bag off the roll, put the heater bar about 3/4" from the end, and seal. About the only rolls I use anymore is the expandable rolls for things like prime rib roasts. And I get in the habit of double sealing anyway.
  7. I picked up one of these at a pawn shop here in Austin. I think I paid around $29 for it They didn't know the worth of it. Yes, dual contact and non-contact. Same principal. Plus I like Fluke quality.... https://www.amazon.com/Fluke-FoodPro-Thermometer-Display-Temperature/dp/B000VRECPQ
  8. Right. Grab the nut with a pair of vise-grips or pliers, and turn while pulling outward.
  9. Saw this on a local Austin Reddit page... https://www.texasmonthly.com/bbq/fire-look-inside-franklin-barbecue/
  10. Only $3 each. http://www.foodsaver.com/accessories-and-parts/replacement-parts/foodsaver-replacement-parts-for-v3200-series/v3200series-parts.html#start=17
  11. I have a favorite Foodsaver, the V2865 and yes, the new seals made it vacuum out and hold a vacuum 10 times better. And the new seals are quite cheap. I usually find my Foodsavers off Craigslist and the like, but the last spare I bought was from a pawn shop.
  12. $76 Smoke offer is gone now. Got mine, looks new!
  13. Thanks! I ordered one. Been waiting for some sort of discount.
  14. When I bought my 2 KJ's from Costco, I was there and the sales guy was telling me that an older couple had brought back their black Classic to Costco because it was damaged, like yours. It was destroyed. The wife sheepishly admitted after they got a new Classic from Costco that her husband tried to unload it by himself, and dropped it. But that was not the story he told Costco...
  15. I already peeled my stickers off, but now it's time to get out the Goo Gone to remove the glue that was left behind. The side table stickers came off with no problem. Now if the cover would drop it's price....
