Dave, are you working the Laguna Marketplace road show in 2 weeks? That's my local Costco... 

 

I had to buy a 20# bag of Primo (for $31.50 :shock: ) a few weeks back because I ran out of my KJ lump, so I need to stock up... I might need to rent a truck for it ;-)

 Does your KJ lump put out a lot of ash while cooking? I tried some for the first time a few weeks back and it left ash all over my food and I'm not sure why.

I haven't tried the new "restaurant grade" KJ, but I've *always* really liked KJ lump. I've never had any complaints with it. 

 

The Primo was pretty decent. I don't like RO. I also used Fogo and thought it to be excellent.

 

But quality and value (with the roadshow pricing) simply CAN'T be beat with the KJ. 40# for $30 is a steal.

I am going through my first bag now. No ash on my food. In fact, I find KJ lump to be one of my lower ash producing lumps.

The KJ charcoal from the Costco Roadshows is excellent and burns just as expected. Dave is a great rep and answered a ton of questions I had prior to my purchase.

Also, glad we picked up the Jr. That day too.

I am thinking ash on your food has more to do with air moving through your kamado then with what type of lump your using. Just a thought.

Hi Jesse. I have not had that problem with KJ lump so I have to say no to your question. Possible ideas to check into are as "keeperovdeflame" points out, maybe air somehow got forced into the bottom damper from wind, etc. Other possibility could be a buildup of ash in the tray or ash containment area of your grill before you started. I say it's a safe bet to give it another go.

Hey Rob. Glad to hear you're enjoying your KJ's. Awesome pics of the Joe Jr. making it up to Yosemite. My Jr. just missed my trip but it'll be along on the next one. Great meeting you both and we're happy we could help you with your purchase. Thanks again!

Thanks for the reply's guys, I'm not sure what's going on cause it didn't do it with anything else I've used. I bought 2 bags of it and was really excited to try it so I cleaned everything out so that I only burned KJ lump on my cook, didn't want other coal in there. It did it the second time I cooked with it as well but like I said I have 2 bags of it and I'm not going to toss it so I'll give it another try on something else. Norwalk isn't to far from me so I might go and check them out anyways.

      I may like this unit a lot.  I hope to find an unbiased review.

      I recently picked up 3 boxes of Forest Lumps charcoal at a KCBS event here in town and the vendor told me that this was a great Beechwood charcoal from Europe. It rated highly recommended on the Naked Wiz site. It lit very fast and seemed to burn well, but it produced a lot of smoke. This is the first charcoal that I have purchased that was not from either Walmart or HD and am not sure why or if this product is better. Has anyone tried this lump?

      wow. 
      I have been looking at Alibaba and there are so many manufacturers of ceramic kamados.
      The price is 1/4 -1/3 of retail, BUT the hard part to swallow is shipping. 
       
      Has anyone ordered things from Alibaba - large / heavy like this?
       
      MOQ = Minimum Order Quanity = sometimes is 1 or 2 but Never to fill a container!
       
      Anyone will expertise in this area? imports? I am near Long Beach for major international port of entry. 
      The number of containers and activity is unbelievable.

      Morning Everyone. 
       
      First, this forum has been great for getting tips and learning how to cook on my Kamado Joe. So far I’ve successfully made pizza, beef ribs, and chicken which have all
      been amazing.
       
      I want to smoke a brisket for mother’s day and have learned the how’s and what to dos but what I don’t know is how much charcoal do I use?  I haven’t bought the brisket yet but I’m assuming this will be a 8-10 hour smoke. I just want to make sure I have enough coal to keep the fire going. 
       
      Also, do you wrap your brisket half way through or no?  
       
      Thanks in advance!!!

      Today was just one of those days... Went to the store looking for what I wanted to cook up this weekend and Ribeyes were on sale. Thankfully the butchers were still around so I asked for some thick ### steaks to help bring a smile to my face. I think the butcher was just as happy to prepare the steaks for me as I was watching her cut them up and wrap them. I may have been drooling a bit and giggling like a 12 year old girl, but that's neither here or there.
       
      Went with a reverse sear for these babies, setting up the coals on the Big Joe to one side and cooking the steaks indirect to an IT of 130. After I pulled them off, I opened the top hue and let the temps get up to 600 so I could get a nice sear. Sorry for not adding the "money shot" once we cut into those bad boys I was too busy eating to take any pictures.
