In this video, you will find all of the information necessary to properly unbox and assemble your new Kamado Joe Classic III grill. I didn't think to make a video for the first one, so thought I would share tips I picked up from doing it a second time around.
Assembled my girls KJC this evening, and could not for the life of us figure out how you are supposed to lower it into the stand. Ended up having her using the ash/vent hole and swapping hands as we got to the ring, but in the meantime I almost lost my fingers as the back of the base almost pinched them against the ring. The assembly video conveniently skips that part, and jumps straight to where they are removing their hands after it's already seated. I searched here and found mention of people placing their hands under the band around the lower bowl, but there was a sticker over the top vent that said to NOT use the bands to support the weight of the cooker. How on earth is this supposed to be done?
Hello all, I am new to this forum and Just purchased a 2017 Model of Pit Boss from Costco still at the $599.00 price from last year. After looking at the BGE and other Kamado grills for some time I decided to pull the plug and purchase this one. Assembly was easy, though the unit weighs a ton. The unit seems to be very well built in my opinion. Grill came packaged very nicely and was well secured in the box. This unit also came with a spider diffuser and cover. Things of change from the previous model in what I understand from researching this is, that the shelves are made of a type of solid sturdy plastic that seem very hefty and durable, unlike wood that needs lots of care if left in the elements, this should need very little care and time will tell if they hold up. The shelves if left to fall accidentally have a stop on them to keep them from hitting the Boss unlike previous models. There is now also a perforated door in the lower vent area along with a solid door. I did pinch in the guide rails on the lower vent to better prevent the unit from getting air when shut down. The first night of grilling on it we made two thin crust pizzas that the wife and I thoroughly enjoyed (probably more fun deciding what to use for ingredients and building it together though I was probably more excited to use the grill for the first time). Pizzas took about 6 minutes to get done and the temp gauge attached to grill lid registered 650, I will use my digital meter the next time to see how accurate this lid mount thermometer is, I understand that most are not good at providing accurate readings. I feel the grill heated up fairly quickly seeing the smaller amount of wood I used and the temp of 20 degrees outside. After shutting down the grill and then looking at it the next day, I had some of my wood left so I know that the fire is getting smothered adequately. I look forward to many more cooks and smokes on it in the very near future. Hope this helped with anybody looking at purchasing a Pit Boss in the future. Best of Luck with your grilling adventures.
