  1. Official release date has been announced as 11/15/2017. Mark your calendars!
  2. You could be right, but I think we can all agree to hope that I am. From what I'm told the hardware is very solid and the only real details being worked out were with packaging. The app had a total overhaul in the last month and is nearing completion. There are a host of additional features to be added to the app in future releases, but that can all happen once the device is on shelves. My personal speculation is that Bobby's comments on 'Testing' and 'Power Users' were more of a stall tactic to keep people in the market from buying a competitors product. Bobby has had a unit since he got back from China a few weeks ago and I am sure he has been testing it. Well see in a couple more weeks at the Block Party
  3. Not sure the basis for your pessimism, but the iKAMAND hardware is production ready and the first release of the app is close. Id be stunned if these are not available for order in September or October.
  4. I expect it well before next year. The iKAMAND and basket will be at the JOEnation Atlanta Block Party on 8/26. There may still be some tweaking to do, but most if not all of that will be in the software side.
  5. As I said... I'm going off of what Bobby told me. The reps at HQ have their hands full with the 'here and now' so I don't imagine they're that interested in spreading rumors about what's upcoming.
  6. To clarify a couple of points, the addition of the charcoal basket is not to enable airflow, but to facilitate easy and thorough cleanup so the iKAMAND doesn't blow ash everywhere in rapid start mode. Also, it is not a concept. These are in production and should be available relatively soon. If I had to guess I'd say very similar timing to the iKAMAND itself.
  7. I actually prefer the option of solid or open. I prefer solid for most cooks, especially a small 2 zone cook. For rotisserie I think divided but open is better. Once I have the KJ basket I will likely make a solid divider to fit it as well
  8. I also don't have much to fabricate metal parts with. I just used a jigsaw and a bench vise. If I had better stuff, I'd have made something beefier and a little more stable. For the $10 I spent I've been very happy with the function. Reality is, I will never wear it out because I'll have the KJ version well before this quits.
  9. That would be super heavy and expensive. At that point I wouldn't bother DIYing one. Mine is 1/32" and is probably sufficient to last 3-5 years. Some 1/16 to 1/8" would be plenty. It's not really under any significant load in use
  10. That's about how I made mine. THD only had very light steel, which is working fine but won't hold up long term. Lowes had some heavier stuff if you have the tools to work with it
  11. I do a raised and divided setup that very effectively creates two zones. My divider does block the bottom, but I've also gotten good results using a deflector plate to isolate the indirect side.
  12. I would prefer to see a solid divider panel because I use my divider to isolate a second zone for some cooks. Won't be hard to fashion one to fit those built in slots
  13. Not that I've seen. Also not sure it's necessary
  14. I think there will be a lot of that going on in the months ahead
