  1. I'm pretty sure this is just their weird love child with Monolith. Nothing to get excited about.
  2. Since this seems to be the only thread on the iKamand I thought I'd give it a bump and fill in some details y'all might not have seen if you aren't active in the FB group. 1. $$$ this thing is going to be $149. That is crazy stupid cheap when you compare to everything else on the market, and consider this is a better, more feature rich design. 2. Availability- first run is scheduled to be released next month. No 12-24 months for this thing to be in the wild 3. Start up mode - this thing has a 30 cfm blower crammed into that little housing. Bobby posted a video of it raising temp from 600 to 850 in 45 seconds. https://www.dropbox.com/s/lirkm3cfiro49z3/20170524_143803.mp4?dl=0 Maybe you won't be rock steady at 225 in 2 minutes or grilling in 5, but it's damn sure faster than anything I've seen. That kills a lot of excuses for people who stay clear of charcoal or even those who generally only cook on the weekend. The more often it's practical to use your cooker, the easier it is to justify the price tag. 4. Bluetooth and Wifi connectivity with 3 meat probes 5. Not just for KJ. It will fit several major brands out of the box, and they plan to have adapters in the future. 6. This can live on your cooker. No need to mount and dismount for each use. If you want to use it, plug it in. If you don't, adjust your lower vent as normal with the unit attached. 7. Did I mention the price? I have no idea what their strategy is here, because they developed the best game in town, by far, and it's selling for little more than a Thermoworks Smoke (less if you add the gateway). Y'all gripe all you want about sucking the soul out of kamado cooking, or whatever, but these innovations open up the market for so many to step into this passion of ours. I think everyone should embrace that whether you need this particular product or not. Innovation breeds innovation and there will come an innovation that does matter to you because KJ decided to blow the roof off the status quo.
  3. The fire going out and the temp returning to ambient are two different things. The fire might be out in 30 mins to an hour, but your kamado may be hot for several hours longer
  4. https://www.facebook.com/groups/500015733460665/permalink/1095077893954443/
  5. Most would probably work with some modifications to make room for the longer hinge housing. The cart is supposed to be out soon I believe
  6. This particular cut goes by quite a few names. Picanha is the most 'authentic' name for it if you are searching recipes or techniques. If you are shopping for it it can be called several things... culotte, rump cap, top sirloin cap, and picanha are the names I know it by, but there could be more. Best place to find it is a Brazilian market as you could pay a lot more of you go to a butcher.
  7. I personally don't feel a local dealer brings a lot to the equation. I bought my BGE locally and when I had an issue with my bands needing constant adjustment they said 'just make it tighter'. Come to find out 6 months later BGE redesigned the band/hinge. Sold the BGE to buy a KJ direct from KJ HQ. Got home and found a crack in the firebox. A few days later I had a 90 lb box sitting on my doorstep with a brand new redesigned firebox. Didn't cost me a cent. Some manufacturers will charge you to ship replacement parts. Can't imagine that's cheap on a 50+ lb part, but with KJ it's not a concern. Also, I've heard of some manufacturers requiring that you wait until the part fails completely before replacing it. Again, not KJ. My crack was so faint it could barely be photographed, but they didn't bat an eye. The crack has spread quite a bit since then but has still not failed. Regardless , I feel reassured that I will not miss a single cook when it does give out. My point is that there is service and then there is above and beyond. KJ is second to none in that department and it has nothing to do with the dealer being 50 or 500 miles away
  8. I've refined my design since this. Now the legs are easily adjustable in height for different cut thicknesses
  9. My point exactly
  10. The Carson Rodizio is very nice, and at the kickstarter prices I'd probably have bought one. I paid $60 for this one and feel it will meet my particular needs very well
  11. Congrats John!
  12. I used these Autosocks for forklifts in a Washington state warehouse that I worked in. Provided good traction without needing snow tires. Not great for everyday use, but handy for those couple of slippery days each year. There are a few different brands available.
  13. The turbo Subaru models still require premium fuel. The 6 cylinders used to, but no longer do.
  14. That is definitely strong pricing. I'll have to look into it if I ever shop for a new car.
