I just ordered a KJ Classic II over the weekend, and I am beyond excited to start learning and cooking on it when it arrives! I have heard that one should do a few "dry runs" where you heat the grill up without any food before cooking on it. When I was looking at different kamado brands in person, one sales rep told me it was necessary to "set" the ceramic or something like that by heating it up to a few hundred degrees for at least 30 minutes before trying to cook anything on it. I'm honestly a bit skeptical of that claim, but I'm also new to this style of grill, and since it's a significant investment, I obviously want to treat it well and take care of it so that I can enjoy cooking with it for years to come. Anyway, sorry for rambling. I'm looking forward to any advice and suggestions on getting my grill set up and cooking once it arrives! Suggestions on what to cook first also welcome! My wife and I were talking about it the other day and were a bit undecided. Thanks in advance!
Morning! So I've gone completely ham, literally speaking, since I got the Akorn back in November. I've smoked 6 different ham recipes.. and recently just picked up 5 spiral hams and threw them in the freezer because they were marked down to basically 80cents a pound from $3-4/lb I got i got 10-14lb hams for basically $10-14 a piece. I quit buying deli ham all together and now we use strictly the smoked hams for sandwiches, throw some in the skillet for breakfast sandwiches, as well as using it for dinner in general of course... That said.. I've done nothing but hams and and steaks on it since picking it up.. done burgers a few times and they are always phenominal.. in fact the family prefers them the next day even more I think so I usually make about 20 patties... really wishing I had a bigger surface area at this point because i'd make more if I could. That said, I'm doing burgers for the wife and her girlfriends when they get off work tonight and am interested in some recipes outside of the typical burger.. My general prep tends to be make patty, season, sit for 20 mins in fridge.. cook.. last 1-2 mins slather with BBQ sauce and some garlic cheddar cheese slice and then serve them with baked beans on top of the patty. It's a favorite. I'd like to change it up though and hoping you guys have some favorites you might recommend. Im really looking in to some sort of stuffed burger but I'm open to all sorts of recipes like maybe a minced garlic and onion bacon cheddar burger or similar. Look forward to the great suggestions you folks will have!
