  1. My Primo XL FIREBOX has severe cracks. Original crack started at one of the vent holes and gradually propagated to form major crack. Is this a common problem?
  2. All, I am new to the site and messed up the location of my post by initially putting it in the introductions section. Below is the link to that post. I am looking for ideas on small cracks forming in the firebox of my New Old Kinuura Yaki #5 Kamado. Photo of kamado for fun
  3. This weekend I broke my firebox and don't know if its too old to repair because of parts. Can someone please help me. This grill has been in my family for over 40 years. Im Devistated!
  4. What is the top diameter of a firebox on a classic Joe?
  5. Hey there everyone! New to the forum, but I'm hoping to get some info from you guys. To those that have upgraded to the new multi-piece firebox, how has your experience with it been? I received mine this weekend, and I just can't seem to get it to fit tightly together. I have gaps in almost every piece. The tongue and groove is not locking together at all. In it's current state, ash and embers will be everywhere inside. I can't believe this is how it's intended to fit together. The only install videos I've seen online have been for the smaller model KJ. Anyone that has a 20
  6. I really do love the new firebox design and having the peace of mind that I'll probably never see this thing crack. Great concept, looks great, etc... That said, cleaning the Big Joe used to be such a simple proposition of removing the ring and firebox, vacuuming, and replacing them. Now, it is much more of a hassle- so much so that I definitely clean less and even then, try to do so when I have another pair of hands available to reset all of the pie pieces (let's call them) in place. I am also a clean freak and the ash that finds it way into the cracks between the pie pieces drives me nuts.
  7. Took these pics last Thurday. have a few cracks starting in my Big Joe firebox. Some are very fine– others, more pronounced. Just posting as a reference so that I can refer back to how long the box remains useful before there is a need to contact KJ for replacement. At rear of firebox... same place, different view... bottom front left.. this pic is looking from rear of Big Joe...
  8. I have an idea to reduce cracking in KJ fireboxes. Right now the current design uses a single relief cut to reduce stress. I'm wondering if the KJ Classic and Big Joe firebox could be redesigned to use a split firebox design. The Firebox would come in two pieces that come together with a tiny gap between to create the firebox. This design would further emlinnate the stress. It would greatly reduce the number of firebox replacements KJ will have to perform overtime. Let me know what you guys think.
  9. Anyone curious what a Kamado Joe BigJoe cast iron firebox looks like? I am willing to bet this think is #uncrackable! Bobby asked me to put this through its paces. I think this is one of the first prototypes, I don't know anymore than that. I have some photos side by side with a replacement FB and FR.
  10. I took apart the Classic to clean it out and add a High-Que grate. There they were, two cracks in the firebox. Time to read the thread on warranty claims. (I've tried to attach pics but I keep getting an error indicating that I'm not permitted to upload this kind of file?)
  11. Guys I am now a fully fledged member of the " I cracked my firebox Club" Whoop whoop. I had already done around 4 cooks this year when I decided to give my firebox a clean out(I used briquettes for a cook and didn't like the taste so wanted to remove all evidence in case a fellow guru popped by and wanted to inspect my Joe). Half way through cleaning and I notice a crack 3/4 of the way round through the air holes. So I did what so many of you have already done and contacted KJ UK(Grakka). They took my details asked for a few photos and sent me another one out within a week. Yep I'm as
  12. Hi Gurus! I certainly do NOT mean to flog a dead or dying horse here, but there have been some posts about cracked fireboxes in numerous thread recently. This thread is NOT intended to stir up that conversation or pit one brand against another. And I'm hesitant to even post this, but several people have sent me several PMs about a post I made where I stated that I couldn't imagine a KK firebox cracking and that I had never heard of such a thing. Attached is a picture of a pristine KK 23" Ultimate firebox from above: The reason I posted what I did is evident in the above pict
