  1. Hey all. Living in Scotland and well getting the ole Kamado (Early model Pit Boss K24) going and was looking for a cheap divide and conquer setup. Getting compatible bits for a non-KJ grill is a bit tricky in the UK and the price is bat sh!t crazy but I came across the brand Onlyfire but not the one listed for a Kamado as it seems they carry a premium price due to Kamado branding. Looking at many of the kettle grill versions there was only a 1/2" difference in size I can't believe that a factory would run off different models in 1/2 sizes not exactly a pair of shoes. Anyway, the "Onlyfire
  2. Until I get my grill shack built with a roof, I wanted a way to keep rain and snow out of my Louisiana grills 24 inch kamado top vent. Smokeware doesn't and won't make their version to fit. I do have one of the smokeware ones for my large grill dome and love it. I have searched extensively for a solution and found a possible solution. I got a 9 inch galvanized stove pipe cap for reasonable price that only requires the kamado gasket seal for snug fit. This does go over the existing vent top. I have yet to test but does fit nicely. I don't remember the guidelines as
  3. Hi Pit Boss pitmasters, I made a charcoal basket for my Akorn but it turned out it'll fit over PIt Boss Kamado from Costco like a glove - a nice discovery from my neighbor. It makes two zone cooking very convenient. It's laser cut stainless steel and sits inside the fire bowl. The bottom tray is about 3" from the top of the grate. Pics attached. I bought an Akorn a few years back and started to make accessories for it as a hobby. Now it seems can go on as a little biz. Thanks for the support, mahalo!
  4. Hi all, I'm been trying to find someone who sells or ships spiders to canada for the pit boss. I want to set up for direct and indirect grilling can't find parts anywhere. Cermic grill store won't ship to canada ad their canadian distributor is sold out. Anyone here have any ideas????
  5. Last night was my first attempt at pizza on my new Pit Boss. All I can really say is: It was amazing!!!! So here we go: Set-up: Pit Boss factory deflector legs down Both racks installed Pampered chef pizza stone on top rack 550 F lower vent: one mark from wide open (3/4 open) Top vent: wide open So I picked up fresh dough from grocery store and spent a fortune at the anti-pasta bar on sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke, olives. etc... Prepped my first pizza with keeping dough really thin on my wooden pizza peel. With my Kamado cruising at 550F I sprinkled some corn meal on pizza stone
  6. Anyone seen these yet? Just noticed on the Costco website today, wondering if the in store models are blue as well? That may derail my plan of buying a Pit Boss this year, because it won't match the deck. I think looks much the same as last year's otherwise, except for the side shelves. My Costco doesn't have much lawn and garden yet.
  7. I've posted some of this stuff before but figured I would consolidate a post with the accessories I use on my PB K24. I haven't spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars like some folks and know that others probably have better or different ways of accomplishing much of the same thing. I don't use any temp control gadget and don't really feel the need to. After gaining a couple years experience cooking on mine I can dial it in and maintain temps fairly easily. (BTW I did do the vent mods to eliminate any big leaks) Anyhow, these are the gizmos I use to help cook on the Pit Boss: Fire
  8. Hi, I wanted to get some feedback regarding which grill to get. I have boiled it down to a few options: 1) Primo round all-in-one $800 2) Pit boss k24 from Costco $599 3) Used BGE $800 The pit boss is considerably cheaper at $599, and I hear in August they usually go on clearance for $350. As primo owners, I was hoping to get some feedback on after owning the primo, do you believe it is still worth the premium? I have read some people have had issues with Primo honoring their warranties, so that is a concern as well. Would you buy the Pit Boss knowing what you know t
  9. This past weekend, I did a spatchcock chicken on the Pit Boss. It was some of the juiciest chicken I've had and it came out really good. Spatchcock Chicken on the Pit Boss Kamado
  10. Hi everyone! So I am in the market for my 1st Kamado grill. Not looking to break the bank on a BGE or a KJ. Leaning towards the Pit Boss K24 once it shows up at Costco and hoping it is 599 in store as oppose to the 750 on their site. That being said I was in Academy yesterday and saw their Outdoor Gourmet. Looking at it on here the ones posted in the past seem to be different than the one they have now. Having not looked at a pit boss in person I fell this “new” Outdoor Gourmet resembles the pit boss a lot. They went from a 90 day warranty a few years ago to a 1 year warranty now.
  11. I've had great success with long smokes with my K24 and iGrill to monitor grate and meat temps. The iGrill allowed me to wirelessly monitor temps and make small adjustments to prevent swings and maintain that perfect range. Last week I attempted my second overnighter after the temps settled at 250 and woke up to 180 degree grate temp. The butt and brisket still turned out fantastic, it just took a little longer than it should because I had to bring the temp back up. As a result, I decided to pick up a PartyQ from BBQ Guru for those overnight occasions. I didn't see the need to get the more ex
  12. I just bought a new PB K24 from Costco 2 days ago. I tought it would be easier to find a suitable heat deflector (... and affordable). The original one is about 136$can (with shipping). I was looking at all the other topics related to the heat deflector, and it seems that the original one is not really appreciated. The problem is, most of the replacement solutions are from items are from the US or UK, but I can't find these items in Canada. I was looking for for the Vision XL spider (or any other spider), or even for the Saffire multi levels, but there's none on amazon.ca, homedepot.ca, .
  13. Hi guys, does anyone have dramas with their temp control while using a Kick Ash Basket in their Pit Boss Kamados? I recently got one and since then i've been struggling to keep the temp below 300f. The picture here is the bottom vent when the Pit Boss is at 300f, I can barely shut it any further. I don't have any leaks through the gasket or top air vent so I don't think much air could be getting in there (I leave the bottom plate in too), and I don't have any dramas closing it all off to starve the charcoal. I light with a single fire lighter in the centre and #### down the vents about 50-100f
  14. Hello fellow kamado users. I'm new to kamado but have read they are the best in terms of efficient long term smoking. Looking forward to learning. I have just purchased a Pit Boss and await it's arrival this Wednesday. Previously I was pretty much Web kettle and occasional gas grill user. I am retired so in addition to enjoying my Harley throughout the southwest I also have time to explore the kamado BBQ world.Looking forward to learning and interacting with fellow kamado users.
  15. Over this past weekend I did my first beer can chicken on the kamado. I pretty much followed the recipe posted here in one of the forums, with a few variations. I think it turned out ok for my first attempt, although I think I left it on a few minutes more than i should have. Internal temperature at the breast got to 170-ish and the white meat turned out just a tad on the dry side. Not inedible dry, just that kind of dry where you can kind of tell it was on just a bit too long...dark meat was fine. Either way the kids and wife liked it - it was very flavorful. I'll definitely try again until I
  16. 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 s
  17. Hi and greetings from New Orleans, LA. I have been smoking and grilling now for over 30 years but have just purchased my first Kamado Grill. It's a Pit Boss K22 Kamado. I have used it twice for grilling and so far I'm blown away. The meat stays so tender and juicy. I can't wait to try smoking in it. I look forward to learning and sharing experiences with everyone here. Ez
  18. Hi Folks, I am new to ceramic charcoal barbecue. I am a long time Weber griller who has wanted to make to move to Kamado for the past year. I purchased my Pit Boss this past Saturday from Costco. I am very impressed with the Forum and what you are doing with your Kamados.
  19. So, I know many of you are looking for a good deflector solution for the Pit Boss. I believe I have the perfect solution, although it took a bit of work. You may be able to custom order one or get them to make a bunch for us if there is demand. What I got was the Ceramic Grill Store's Vision XL Spider. It sits in the notches in the firebox and puts a ring about 2 1/4" down below the main grate. You can then set a 16" stone or 2 half stones on the spider, and if you want, a 16" drip pan (also from CGS) on the stones. You could also set a 15-17" searing grate on it to get closer to the
  20. I'm looking to move up from my medium sized Vision to a larger grill. I use my M series all the time and it is usually big enough but it can get crowded and I'd like to move up - maybe just because I want a new toy but regardless that's what is on my mind. Have seen a couple of decent options locally - one is a Classic Joe in good condition with the accessories. The other option is to buy a Pit Boss 24 from a local warehouse that closes out stuff. I unfortunately cannot buy the Pit Boss directly from Costco as they don't have any but if so that would have been a good option since the
  21. Good Afternoon All, Wanted to introduce myself and first off say thanks - this forum has been a huge wealth of information and I wanted to thank this Kamado grilling community for being so dedicated to their art. About me quickly: Mid 30's, pilot in the military and brand new dad. I recently bought a Pit Boss 24" at Costco while they had them on sale in July. I've been waiting for years to get a new grill as my hand me down smoker sucked but I kept using it telling myself I would get one in my next move. That move got postponed a year and so Costco's sale was too good to pass up! H
  22. So I'm planning on doing my first pizza cook this weekend and I was wondering what temps you guys have made pizzas at? My wife loves the crust on pizza you get from the super hot italian ovens so I was planning on temps in the range of 600 degrees. Too hot? Not hot enough? Any suggestions would be appreciated!
  23. Decided to smoke some ribs for the first cook, kept them at about 225 for 5 hrs. Wow! Can't believe how much difference the kamado makes. Paid about $15 for my ribs, very good meat, not sure if that's a good price, was about 3.2lbs.
  24. This looks like a Vision relabeled as a "Pit Boss" for Costco. Not bad for $599.
  25. Made my first ever flat brisket on the pit boss, was a big hit! Though I think I could of taken it off a bit sooner.
