I’m having this issue where my lid will not stay open. My joe is 2 weeks old. It’s the 2017 version. I’ve tried reading online to find a fix and I’m just stuck
what I have tried to do so far is hold the bottom bolt and take the top but and screw it counter clockwise(doing it is just weird and awkward ). The top and bottom never touched but they got close. I figured I wasn’t doing anything when I noticed nothing had change.
Can an anyone be if any help. I’ll even trade you one of my recipes
After assembling the grill and doing the first burn I noted that the lid is now canted down and back. This results in a gap at the back of about 1/2 inch and the front of the lid is positioned 1/2 inch toward the back. Because of that position, the piston that the lid plate rests on is too far back and keeps the lid raised slightly.
I finally was able to speak with PB customer service. They advised to add washers to the hinge bolts to change the angle of the lid. After taking the hinge off, I find it impossible to get it back on the bolts. Has anyone had this problem? Was I foolish to follow instructions from customer service? Aaaarrrggghhh!!!
I'll be on the phone to them again tomorrow. Sigh...
Would anyone here know where I may be able to find the hinge assembly for a large big green egg? The shell is in good shape but the hinge, bands and firebox have seen better days. I would rather purchase used vs buy new if anyone has an old one laying around. Thanks for reading! - J
Hi There, I'm in search of some parts for a large BGE. Specifically the belly band hinge system. I'm attempting to bring some new life to an old BGE so I'll take any parts I can get as the hardware on this kamado is in rough shape but the shell is pristine. Thanks for taking the time to read. Please let me know if you have any questions. - Jeremy
Moving in another direction -- just bought a KBQ C-60. Time to let go of all my BigJoe accessories, including the BigJoetisserie with 2 Napoleon kabob rotisserie racks. One of the kabob racks is BNIB, the other one used only once. Also up for sale is the Big Joe Grill Extender, well seasoned, probably used 20-30 times. And last but not least, a kick ash basket for the BigJoe, only used for a couple months, maybe 10 cooks.
BigJoeTisserie with kabob racks: $200 plus shipping ($340 new).
BigJoe Grill Extender : $50 plus shipping ($95 new)
Kick Ash Basket. $50 plus shipping. ($90 new)
