Extra Large Smoker Pot

Recommended Posts

Because of the reviews on the cast iron pot _ I now have a 2QT ready to drill holes in the bottom. The reviews have been quite compelling.

Well I just stumbled across this home manufactured unit called the Karubecue. It works exactly the same and there is a very good description of the smoke process.

Sometimes I think there are as many kinds of cooking contraptions as there are BBQ sauces and rubs.

This one sounds like fun.

These do look really cool.  I've clicked the AmazingRibs link more than a few times in the past and re-read the story/review/etc...  Looks like it would be fun to use, but for me, probably one of those niche once a year things that I'd never use enough to justify the cost.  If he gets some momentum or financial backing to mass-produce them, Or at least more than a few at a time, then the price point could come down to where I'd think about getting one.  For $1500-1600 though, they're too rich for my blood.  I ordered the little Lodge DO a long time ago and still haven't drilled it out yet.  Need to look into that.

I agree. Having to stay right at the cooker for the entire time just like a real stick burner would really limit how often I would use it. However that does make me believe the results would be similar to the standard stick burner.

Then one also needs the round branches between a set size and one would need a good source for the wood_which I do not have.

On the up side it is light, portable, and small enough to fit on a patio and it can make a good bit of QUE.

I was ready to drill the holes and chickened out LOL. I will do it soon.

      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.

      Cooking my first brisket on the KJ Classic 2 and had a lot of trouble with thick white smoke. My process below, if anybody can help me find the mistake it would be much appreciated!
       
      - Loaded KJ with Jealous Devil lump charcoal and mix ~5-7 oak log chunks of medium (?) size. Logs were highly likely kiln dried but I did get them in firewood-like logs from a meat market vs the mass distro grocery store/home improvement bags
      - Used Royal Oak starters and got the lump lit for about 15 minutes, then a couple of the oak chunks caught and I got a decent fire.
      - Closed the top but opened the vent fully to try to let it smoke out and carbonize. Temp jumped pretty quickly to about 350 so I choked it back and got it stable around 260 but the thick white smoke continued for a solid 45+ minutes at which point I had no choice but to start the meat
      - White smoke continued for another hour+ after this, albeit it didnt billow out quite as aggressively. This went on for a couple of hours at least which seemed like an excessively long time.
       
      Thoughts? Advice?
      Thanks!

      I thought I'd care a great cook experience with you all that I just had.  I have a Kamado Joe Big Joe III and I reverse seared some USDA Prime Ribeye's that I picked up at CostCo today.  I used the flexible cooking system and used one half of the heat deflector plates and left the other half open to flame.  I seasoned the steak in the Meat Church Holy Cow seasoning and let them sweat out while I got the grill to temperature. I set big reg to 225 for smoking and it took about an hour (give or take to get the ribeye's to about 120 degrees. After that I opened up the Big Joe and let her rip to about 500-550 degrees and then seared the steaks for about three minutes aside.  I also made a compound butter consisting of rosemary, Italian seasoning, fresh garlic, salt and pepper.  After searing, I took tented the steaks in foil and let the compound butter melt on top.  Lastly, I did some twice baked potatoes in the oven.  All that said, the pictures speak volumes compared to this brief description.  This is probably the best steak I've ever cooked.  Just wanted to share.  Thanks to everyone that's continued to help me on my journey in Kamado style cooking!

      Hey all.  So I just got my Kamado Joe Big Joe III and this Saturday I’m going to try my first smoking experience and follow this St Louis guide video from @John Setzler.  My question is pretty simple.  Will the cook times shift significantly if I only do 1 rack of ribs.  I understand the times won’t be exact with every rack, but in general, I was looking for thoughts and guidance.
       
      Thanks in advance.
