Hello all, We have a blue tile #7 that has gracefully endured the extremes of Boston weather uncovered for well over a dozen years, still cooking, but needs some TLC. I am looking for 1) directions on how to reset the tiles that have fallen off over the years, our attempt failed , 2) suggestions as to replacement or substitutions for what Richard called the Lumpsaver (the vessel used to contain the lump coal above the firebox), 3) a replacement handle for the draft door opening, which is also where the gas control is - ours is black ceramic ( handle works fine, but is chipped), and lastly 4) suggestions about what to use inside the grill to secure the frame that the draft door/gas control rods ride when opening and closing - I used furnace cement, but it failed. I know it is a lot to , but advice or suggestions on even one item would be much appreciated - this BBQ has a lifetime of grilling left in her yet! cheers, Nancy
A friend picked up a free Kamado someone put outside their house, but he didn’t really know what to do with it. A few weeks ago, I invited him to a Seattle Seawolves Rugby game, and he had such a great time, that after the game he offered to give me the Kamado. He knows that I grill and BBQ a lot. I have 4 WSM’s, 4 Weber kettles and a 6 burner Summit gas grill. I was leery about taking a grill he picked up from the side of the road, but what the heck. I’ve always wondered about how it would be to cook on a ceramic grill, so now it’s in my garage. I did some research, and I concluded that I have a Kamado K7. It needs some TLC, but I started reading the K7 rebuild threads on this site, and I think I’ll give it a go. I’ll share pictures and details as I go. Cheers! Steve1Ski
