KJ Coffee Lump

I realize Bobby has a lot on his plate, so there's no fire here, well technically it all about where the fire is. All of these KK guys seem to be having way too much fun with this coffee lump. As a KJ user, I want in.

The bigger challenge I think would be getting any coffee lump in any quantities for shipping. Demand would also be the other consideration.

How many KJ users would use a KJ coffee lump?

Just because you cook on a KJ you still could try the KK coffee lump. The lump won't know it's in a KJ - LOL

I did receive a couple boxes of it when I got Cassiopeia. I've used it on 3 cooks now (?). So far so good. Definitely more dense then RO and doesn't spark as bad when lighting and doesn't smoke as bad when coming up to temp. Give me another week and I'll have enough cooks to really have an opinion.

Ok, maybe a silly question, is the coffee lump from coffee wood, or dried compressed grounds?

Worth a thousand words ..... 876f45b906a29896b54f40f35d223cda.jpgb78b235d0f66edd25fdb73cab8ab4dc0.jpg

I just can't imagine how painful it wil be to get KK coffee wood out in Westren Canada. The folks in Toronto may not have as many issue getting coffee lump. Edmonton and Calgary might be another story. I would think KK's distribution into Canada would be limited outside of Ontario.

It's not that you couldn't get the KK lump in Alberta, it would be a $100 dollar box of coffee wood by the time it made it to Edmonton.

I can see trying different exotic woods chunks for smoking from far flung places but not so much charcoal.  The carbon footprint involved in getting it from some coffee orchard on a mountain in Central America to your door must be over the top.  But that's just me.

A lot of the high end lump comes from somewhere other than local US wood. This would be no different. This is actually made from replanted coffee orchards, so it's throw away wood put to a good use. Some other lumps could possibly be from harvested forest.

I get that but different does not make it better IMO.  There is wood everywhere.  Beautiful Rosewood from India for furniture makes sense to me, charcoal not so much.  Now chunks for smoking from exotic wood and places make more sense to me also.  IMO

You could try this http://www.coffeecoals.com if all else fails just make a kopi joss lol the beauty of Perth we are only a 3 to four hour flight away from Indonesia bit longer now the volcanos are running amok

It's only available in the US. Sheesh, some days, Canada feels like the illegitimate bastard of the the world. That boarder cuts down your product selection quick.

      Does anyone have any experience with grilling whole squid? I toured my local "international" (their term) grocery store today and one item I saw was fresh whole squid. 
       
      I'd like to take a crack at grilling it, but don't want to waste money winging it. Any tips/guidelines you have would be appreciated! Happy grilling

      I have a question for the community about fire construction and how much charcoal I should be using when I set up a cook. I have a KJ Classic III and have been using the SloRoller for all of my low and slow cooks.
       
      On some of my larger cooks (one pork butt, a full brisket, and then two boneless pork shoulders) I have burned through all of my fuel before the cook was done. I filled the standard KJ ash basket with charcoal and then light it up with one KJ firestarter. I was smoking everything at around 250F and followed the heating method described by SmokingDad BBQ on his YouTube channel (it worked well!).
       
      Does anyone have an image of what their charcoal looks like when setting up for a 10lb brisket or pork butt?

      Made these Jack and Coke chicken thighs last night, recipe courtesy of http://howtobbqright.com/2016/10/07/jack-coke-chicken-thighs/.  Turned out incredible!  Meat was super rich and juicy, the skin tighten up with the ultra flavorful tacky glaze, and they even formed up pretty nice.  I served them with some sweet corn on the cob, pasta salad with fresh mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil, and some other things, and a mustard vinaigrette butter lettuce salad.
       
      My only recipe modifications were that I used peach preserves instead of pineapple because I couldn't find pineapple, and I used half the brown sugar that the recipe said in the glaze because my all purpose rub has some sugar and the one he uses does not.  Next time, I would make the glaze slightly less salty to let some of the other notes shine through a bit more, and I might put a little less wood one before smoking.  Overall very happy with how these turned out and encourage y'all to try it!
       
      Please let me know if you have any tips or questions...I'm always trying to get better!

      Made some grill fried hot wings on the Kamado Joe classic. Seasoned the wings with some kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Sprayed them with some vegetable oil, tossed them in some Lefty's Spicey Fish & Chicken Mix. I highly recommend it if you can find it. I happened upon it at Shoprite and all I can say is I love it. After I applied one coat I rested the wings on a cookie cooling rack over a half sheet. An hour later when the dry mix got all gooey I applied a second coat to get it extra crispy. While that was resting I lit the KJ, inserted the deflector plates in the high position and brought the temp up to 425°. Once up to temp I let it ride for for 15 minutes just to make sure the grill was thoroughly warmed through.  Put the wings on and flipped them every 10 minutes for even cooking for 45 minutes and voila!!! Crispy hot wings.

      Some wangs seasoned with Oak Ridge BBQ Secret Weapon and slathered with Sweet & Spicy, and Honey BBQ Baby Ray's sauce. I also added a little extra heat via some cayenne pepper powder. 
       I just started a load of lump charcoal with a starter cube. Put the ×-rack on the high position, placed the heat diffuser half moons on, and then the grill grate. I closed the dome and opened the bottom vent completely. Then I opened the daisy wheel so all the holes aligned and swung the vent on top about a 1/4 of the way open. Waited for the temp to approach 400°, then closed the bottom vent about half way. Put the wings on and flipped them a few time so they would cook evenly. When they were almost done placed them in a stainless steel bowl tossed them with sauce threw them back on for a few minutes and viola!
