  1. Get KJ to 375 with lump mostly on one side, but covering the bottom of the KJ so you get direct cooking of juices dripping 10-12# Turkey Salt and pepper inside Stuff with: -Large chopped onion -chopped lemon -Fresh sage, rosemary, thyme Truss bird to keep everything on the inside Rub with oil, salt and pepper on outside 2 hours for 12lb bird - pull at 155, rest for 30 min
  2. Turkey Salt and pepper inside add Large chopped onion, chopped lemon Fresh sage, rosemary, thyme oil, salt and pepper on outside 375 deg offset 2 hours for 12lb bird
  3. I have done 3 racks many times on my KJ Classic (18") with this configuration. The little bit of overcooking on the ends is fixed with a small piece of foil under the edges.
  4. On my Classic II, when I do multiple butts, they cook just like a single as long as they are not touching and there is airflow between them. My probe goes in the smallest one. Butts will get done at a different time based on size. Mine usually all finish within 60 minutes of each other.
  5. I have not used a rib rack in my Classic, but do 3 racks all the time. 2 full racks that fit across the widest part of the grates then the third rack I cut in half and put at the front and back. I have also done 4 racks a couple of times using my grill extender.
  6. I have the same issue on my Classic II. I ignore it, as soon as I install the D&C and the grates, everything lays down fine and it doesn't affect cooking. I also didn't bother to put in a claim since I think this will just happen again due to the thinness of metal.
  7. I bought some welding gloves to use when moving hot grates or deflectors.
  8. No Costco by me, but I had a similar experience when I got my Classic II at the Mall of Georgia Costco when passing by. I already had a Classic 1 and and had researched the new features of the Classic II. I definitely knew more about the product than the sales rep. Based on my conversation with him, I was not convinced he had ever cooked on one.
  9. Has anyone NOT had the paint peel on their Control Top. KJ replaced my Kontrol Top in May under warranty due to the paint peeling. The paint has now started to come of this top also. Nearly all the paint on the inside has blistered and come off and the outside near where the smoke/heat comes out (before the first mark) is also peeling. I have been cleaning the top the next day after every cook with some wipes (no chemicals) and have only had temps to 500 once for smash burgers. I am in N Florida so humidity is always high. Doesn't really affect performance as long as I get the flaking paint off between cooks since that is not a flavor profile I am looking for in the rub. It does affect appearance though.
  10. Too many toppings? Have had this problem a couple of times when someone loads up the toppings to make a meat lovers pie. The toppings block the heat from the top of the crust.
  11. The main issue I see is getting your fingers pinched under that handle when the lid comes down. Seems like it would be difficult to open. I might get a set of stepping stones to set under the feet and grill. This will raise it an inch or two.
  12. As @just4fn said, I think you had your vent open too much for the controller. I have a FB200 and typically my top vent is open less than a 1/4 inch on my Classic II. Also looking at your cook, I would guess you left the lid open when you were wrapping. This is probably what caused your temp climb and overshoot as it fed air to your fire. Because your vent was open so much, it took time to recover. Another Flameboss trick I use is when starting the grill I set the target temp 15 degrees below my desired cook temp. Once it starts to stabilize at this temp, I bump up to my cook temp. I find that the controller always overshoots during startup since it runs the fan at 100% trying to to get to your cook temp and creates too big a fire.
  13. KJ is top notch when dealing with warranty issues. Fill out the form on the website, send a picture of the issue and typically a replacement part lands on my door via FedEx within the week. Never have had to send a receipt or proof of purchase. It is a model for how companies should stand behind their product.
