  1. Broken Joe

    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...
  2. Blackstone Pizza Oven Dirt Cheap

    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....
  3. Blackstone Pizza Oven Dirt Cheap

    Congrats! I did receive mine, assembled it, but have yet to cook on it. Nothing came broken or bent, it is packed pretty well.
  4. Blackstone Pizza Oven Dirt Cheap

    Price is back up to $287 at Walmart, showing not available from Amazon any longer. The past few days they had two in the Warehouse Deals, one was Used, and one Like New. Both are gone apparently too. Mine still is being shown as "Shipping Soon". Will let y'all know if I get it or not. They have charged my credit card however....
  5. Blackstone Pizza Oven Dirt Cheap

    Gone down to $222, so I went ahead and bit the bullet. I will get rid of my GE gasser now, I haven't used it in well over a year now, since I got my two KJ's.
  6. Kick ash basket

    By SS, I assume you mean Simply Steel. According to their site, there is no Stainless Steel version. Yet.
  7. New fiberglass wire mesh gasket

    Yeah... On my Jr, the gasket is nearly all gone now. Scorched it twice. But it still does the job. No smoke leakage that I have seen. Will replace it someday. But I only grill on the Jr, the low and slows occur on the big guy.
  8. Saw this on my cell phone earlier today.... http://dining.blog.austin360.com/2017/05/16/aaron-franklin-to-create-and-sell-franklin-barbecue-pits-for-at-home-cooks/ Not that I am buying one, I had my fun with a smoker, but I only use my KJ's now.
  9. Question about the new KJ cap and grease buildup

    I get a little brutal with my top on my Big Joe. I take off the cap and give it a couple of good whacks with my old cast iron fire grate from my Jr. (don't use it anymore with the Kick Ash basket) Sure it has a couple of good nicks in the paint, but I don't care about that. I use the Joe's to cook, not to look pretty and gleaming on the back porch.
  10. GrillGrates on the KJ Jr.

    I have grill grates for all of my grills, and I just used the ones on my Jr last night for a couple of smaller steaks. I am less than happy with the grates on my Jr. You lose a good bit of surface area due to the small size of the grate. Once had a hot dog roll off the side and onto the ground, since they set so high up. And they are a pain to clean while on the grill, since they slide around so much. They do leave a good grill mark on the meat, and I will still use them on rare occasions. I got mine when they have the scratch and dent sale, so I didn't pay much for them.
  11. How Long Before Fire Is Out?

    Since it is a Big Joe II, I would think that the gaskets are fine. From what videos I have seen they squish down, unlike the older models. Are you latching it down after cooking as well?
  12. Serial # ?

    Yes, I registered both of them together. I got 2 cookers, and 2 manuals. Since the manuals are generic, and are not for a specific model, no way to tell which is which. I use the Big guy for stuff like briskets, 4-5 rib racks at a time, bunch of turkey legs and such. But the lady and I tend to use the Jr far more often, since it is just the both of us. The gasket is long ago toasted, and really needs to be replaced. Gasket doesn't like being subjected to 1000+ temps at all. Gotta get me a Thermoworks Smoke someday, so I can better watch it.
  13. Serial # ?

    When I bought my Joe Jr and Big Joe together (Costco deal), I received 2 generic manuals, each with a serial number. Have no clue which serial number belongs to which cooker. KJ said it didn't matter in the long run...
  14. Kamado Joe Classic II

    Don't forget the lid is so much heavier with the old style hinge, you don't need a latch with the new style gasket.
  15. RTIC sales
