Big Joe 2 months old rust?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've gotten myself a Kamado Joe Big Joe about two months ago. Since the beginning I've covered it with a Kamado Joe branded cover. Now I have two problems:


- The cover seams to leak so much that there is a lot of water on the daisy wheel and the Kamdo is whet all around;

- The springs en bolts seam to rust?


Has anyone ever had this problem?


Kind regards,

I got my BJ in August and always keep it covered, but I am having the exact same rust issue on the bolts. I find it very frustrating... Stainless bolt/nutheads shouldn't be rusting. Let alone after half a season...


Thnx for your reply. Are your springs also rusting?


kind regards,

Yes and no. The KJ cover is pretty bad. It's good for about 2 light rain storms. After that, it's more of a dust cover.


I have not noticed my springs or bolts rusting, but it's been a while since I took the cover off.
