  1. According to the naked whiz i have a modern style medium Imperial Kamado. http://www.nakedwhiz.com/oldmanuals/showik91.htm?I6 The firebox and fire-ring are cracked but i can fix that. I need a new band and hinge and vent door. I have looked every where and even called and wrote to the Kamado King. I have not heard back from them yet. The band and hinge did not appear on their site. Does anyone know if i can use a Kamado Joe or BGE hinge and door? Or do you know where to get the parts? Thanks! Sparkie
  2. Hi all, I am new to the site, but have loved reading over the last few days. I have owned a Kinuura Yaki #5 for about 3 years now, and it has lived at my FIL's house. Since this is the case, I am still a kamado novice! Finally I was able to bring it home after a long road trip! I know this specific kamado was purchased out of a Pachinko Palace in Sacramento many years ago. I am now the second owner of it. All things considered, this piece is in fantastic condition everything is together and in great working condition. As I was packing the kamado for the move, I noticed
  3. 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
  4. Hello there! I'm new to the world of Kamado cooking and to this forum, so I'm looking forward to some dialogue. So I recently found a Big Joe for sale on fb marketplace for the irresistible price of $100! The main body is in not terrible shape, but it's missing quite a few items, and will need some cleaning/repair. I'm hoping the combined expertise hear can help me get this thing in good working order for the least amount of extra $ possible, and more importantly without damaging the integrity of the grill. Condition Report: The ceramic body itself
  5. Not sure if this is the right place but I've been working on fixing up a Kamado that was has been passed down through my family for years. I love cooking with it but it needed some TLC. Not done yet but I'm really happy with how it's turned out so far and I wanted to share. Here are the before and after pics (sorry, before pic isn't that great): I tried to match the orange that remained around the edges of the top/bottom: Let me know what you think! Any recommendations would be great. Looking to eventually replace/fix up the hinges and draft door. They're fully functi
  6. Hello Again ~ After much searching, reading, and scrounging around here and other sites in the BBQ / Kamado Web World, I boldly went where I had feared to go for close to 10 years. The precious Kamado that I inherited from my parents - and fought with a sibling to get - received a long overdue touch up. I realize how fortunate I am to have this amazing Imperial Kamado #3. - perfect in all ways except the external finish and no gaskets - yet. After a good cleaning, I used high temp engine paints to create a finish that is inspired by what I think it looked like when my parents purchased
  7. As a s follow-up to my first Grill dome restoration (see http://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/10848-grill-dome-rebuild-project/?p=118416), I'm planning a second Grill Dome restoration later this year. One consideration will be to re-glaze instead of a re-paint. Unlike other Kamado's that use a glazed surface, Grill Dome's have a heat resistant paint surface. The challenge will be to locate a local potter equipped with a kiln large enough to fit the GD. If it proves successful, I may also choose to repaint my original rebuilt GD (see picture below) as it has since chipped again due to some is
  8. Hello! Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I have an Imperial Kamado that has been passed down through my family. I'm in the process of painting and replacing some parts on it. I do not have a chimney cap for it... I've been using aluminum foil and a brick (pretty fancy, right?) during cooks to restrict flow. I really like the look/functionality of the Smokeware SS cap but I can't find any information that would help me to determine if it would fit my Kamado. I've tried their phone number multiple times but can't get a callback. So I guess my question boils down to this: Has anyone
  9. Hello! My neighbor gave me this smoker a few days ago. He said that an old veteran gave it to him. Allegedly the veteran bought it in Japan in the 60's or 70's and had it imported back to the U.S. when he returned. I'm not sure if this is a Kamado or not. I would like to begin restoring it as a project. I already own a WSM so I'm not in a hurry to get it fixed rapidly. Would someone please help me identify this smoker and give me any tips on my restoration?! Thanks! Issues: All metal components are very rusted. The sliding vent door is so rusted it won't slide anymore and needs to be repla
  10. Hello Everyone, I have had an alert up in CL for months now looking for a kamado grill. I finally picked one up yesterday, but it need some TLC and some replacement parts. I was hoping some one on the forums would have some clue on who made this unit. It seems to be a medium size from what I have read. The inner diameter at the lid is 16.5 inches, and the depth is also 16.5 inches. If I had to guess its a No. 3 Imperial Kamado. The fire box is completely cracked into 8 pieces and will need to be replace. The fire ring is probably not the original and looks too big. It d
