  1. I have been using the KJ half moon soapstone for about a year now. This is a great alternative to using cast iron. The consistent surface temperature equals a fabulous searing. Cleanup is a snap. I have put mine in the dishwasher occasionally.
  2. Ace Hardware has an online promotion through tomorrow. 15% off online purchase for items picked up in their participating stores. A Kamado Joe Classic is $699 just in case anyone is considering a purchase.
  3. I have found that the Big Block burns longer than other lump I have tried. Very dense.

  8. Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new purchase. You will quickly gain an understanding of how to use the vents to adjust and maintain your temps. I for the most part do not reuse my charcoal. When I do though, I always make certain to use more fresh topped with the remnants. Don't give up on the smash burgers! Get the griddle hot hot, drop and smash, 2 minutes, flip and cook for about another 3 to 4 minutes works for me. Cheers! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Hello and welcome to the forum from Baltimore Maryland. As far as must have items, the D&C is a must with the half s/s grates or at least the half cast iron griddle grate. I use this for reverse searing large steaks. Enjoy! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  11. I have 2 of these, one on for my Classic and one for my Jr. They are cheap, they have a universal fit design that works well for my Joes, and they are bright. https://www.amazon.com/Grillmark-Led-Grill-Light-Universal/dp/B001UFLK0I Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I have had my KJ Jr for a while now and I have never had any problem with getting mine started. I have used all sizes of lump mostly KJ. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. It's encouraging to see the effort put into improving an already very successful product. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Isn't there going be a new model of the classic and the big joe with the counter balanced hinge and redesigned vent top soon? If that happens, I would look for dealers to be unloading their inventory to make room for the new items. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Truly one of a kind. Keep up the good work. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  16. After 3 years my handle is in need of replacing. I'm planning on fabricating one out of either a bone or antler. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I find myself only concerned with the temperature from the dome thermometer. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  18. I have really grown to like this cooking surface. I use it a lot, especially for my thick cuts of beef. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  19. Fabulous job. Thank you for sharing the information. What type of wood did you use? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. They are already mass marketing on Amazon, COSTCO, and other outlets with no major supply issues CAR. They had some growing pain issues in the earlier years, but those have been addressed. All companies have to deal with short term supply issues from vendors, longshoreman strikes, etc., but for the most part Kamado Joe is online to keep a steady supply of product in the inventory pipeline. Any type of company that only relies on independent dealers for their main source of sales will die on the vine. Good points. I was surprised to see them available on Amazon but shouldn't have all things considered. According to KJ Costco is not a dealer and is not technically selling their products. The Costco road shows are all sponsored by KJ. Costco does not stock anything. I work for an Ace Hardware dealer and both of our locations are stocking KJ dealers. We have been for about 4 years. I remember during the longshoreman strike we were without grills for 3 months. But the Costco Roadshows continued to be successful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I think if KJ enters the mass merchant market they would have a hard time supplying the loyal independent dealers. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. I use the KJ brand of lump that I purchase from my work, an Ace Hardware dealer. They have consistent size and burn very well. Last year they received a skid that were packaged in brown bags. Most of the lump was enormous and there were very few small pieces and hardly any dust. We haven't seen this bag since. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
