  7. Primo XL Table Finally Finished

    Table looks awesome! Well done!!
  8. If everyone else hasn't sold you, I'll give it a go. Its pretty difficult to knock off all the ashes of a relatively full firebox of lump without breaking good size pieces into tiny pieces. This is where, IMO, you're getting the air flow benefit. Additionally, I bought a KJ over a BGE because of the ash tray. The KAB makes it one step easier to keeping your grill clean and cleaning your grill. Small price to pay in the long run, its definitely worth it.

  10. Fitment of joetisserie on big Joe

    Looks perfect! Except you're missing the meat!
  11. It's a beast!

    If you build a table to put the Big Joe and Junior in you should free up some space, just a thought. Nice kitchen! I'm a bit jealous. I would love to stop running in and out of the house 10 times a night to cook dinner.
  12. Yeah, I'm in the I wish I had a Big Joe camp instead of the classic. I had zero Kamado experience when I bought my Classic and minimal smoking experience. The versatility is what sold me along with the amazing food off of a co-workers BGE. If I had to do it all over again I would have hit the demo deal at costco and gotten the Jr and Big Joe. With the family growing I'm going to need a bigger grill (pushing the limits periodically now) and I told myself I would sell the classic and get the big joe if I needed it. Problem is, I'll never sell my classic now. I'm a minimalist but I'll add Kamados before I get rid of any. So I'll end up with the trifecta when its all said and done at some point as a result of the demo deal but if that didn't exist, I'd grab a Big Joe.
  13. Time for a new gasket?

    Agree with all of the above. I burn through gaskets, no pun intended, but I don't mess with it until the leaking is bad and temp control is an issue. Temps tend to be an issue for low and slows but the other cooks are manageable. You may be covered under warranty depending on the age of your grill. Once it starts leaking submit a claim and see what KJ says.
  14. Buying damaged kamado

    +1 and I like the idea of calling vision before pulling the trigger. I wouldnt do it unless they'll replace it. That's part of the appeal behind the ceramic Kamado is that they last a lifetime. Why drop $200 if its a gamble when $700 is a guarantee. Now if $200 is a guarantee...you got a deal!
