Waiting, waiting, waiting for the Kamado Big Joe to arrive. Nothing. Welp, expecting friends from out of town this weekend and can wait no longer. So, I picked up a Weber Summit Charcoal grill (kamado style) along with a Pit Viper fan. Once the Big Joe arrives I'll have two Kamados! Anyhow, I tried the new Fireboard 2 Drive on this grill along with a Pit Viper fan for a hot smoked pork belly session. I was in a bit of a rush to get things going so I used the fan to stoke the coals up to temperature with a target of 225F. With the Weber bottom vent fully closed and the top vent 1/4 open, the temperature initially overshot about 15 degrees. I brought the temperature down by opening the lid briefly when adding the belly and to make other adjustments (the dips in the graph). Once things were settled in, though, the temperature was regulated on the order of tenths of a degree around the 225F target . That's pretty awesome. Sitting at the computer typing emails and monitoring the temperatures on a browser. With the Fireboard 2 Drive and the kamado, this set-up has better performance and regulation than our kitchen oven.
Hey guys, Ever since I started my youtube channel and bought the Summit, I've been asked several questions over and over. The most common one being "BGE Vs Summit" So this week I finally broke down and made a video comparing the two. I think you will find the video to be complementary of both grills (and KJ) so if you were expecting something scandalous/divisive don't bother clicking...you'll be disappointed. lol.
