Nomex on Wood Table

16 posts in this topic

My table is done. I cut the hole to the specifications put out by Primo. I have not yet put the grill in, as I am waiting for my cover to arrive before I move the table into the backyard. I am curious, for anyone who has used Primo's template, how much space is there between the table and grill? 

 

Thanks for all the feedback.

      While not completely done, it's getting close. The only material we bought was Douglas Fir 4x4's for the frame and some outdoor hardware. Almost everything else was 1/2",3/4", and 1" pallet wood. It was some good stuff too like oak, cherry, heart pine. I kept the rack from my old smoker and used it to hold the soap stone, grill grates, divider, and accessories rack from the KJ. I didn't mount the KJ inside the table because I wanted to roll it out from under the awning when we're blasting the coals for pizza and searing. I have perforated steel boxes that I setup for hot items. 
       
      I'ts been beaten and torched, planed, and sanded.... I still need to stain and seal the wood then we should be in business.

      After months of debating and waiting, I finally pulled the trigger on the Primo and after some more waiting was able to finally cook on it!  I have cooked on an Akorn for the last 15 months or so and really liked it but wanted to move up to a Ceramic.  Some initial thoughts and observations:
      1) This thing is big (and heavy)! - I built a temporary mini cart for it and prob should have used heavier duty casters but it is temporary.
      2) Since it's bigger, it takes more lump.  Not sure exactly how much more though.  And I do have the firebox divider which I have used a couple of times
      3) I really like the oval shape.  This is what ultimately sold me.  I think I would have just stayed with the Akorn otherwise.
      4) It was a completely unnecessary purchase as the Akorn does really well.  But I wanted it and I like it.
      5) First cook was chicken leg quarters - pics below (and I know I don't have a money shot - total amateur move - promise to do better next time, which is very soon).  They came out just as juicy.  On the Akorn they usually came out with the tops a little more brown than the rest.  Didn't experience that on the Primo.  I prefer the Primo,
      6) The thermometer is pretty darn accurate - I have a TheomaQ and they were pretty close most of the cook.

      So in summary - if you were like me and wanted to move up from an Akorn to a Primo, Egg, KJ etc..  I would say you won't be disappointed as they're pretty much all they're cracked up to be (guess that's not the best choice of words when referring to ceramics  ).  But don't be in a rush.  The Akorn is really, really good.  As a matter of fact, I'm thinking about getting an Akorn Jr for small cooks and travel.

      Looking for some expert advice on how to avoid too much smoke flavor and bitter taste.  Cooking on a Vision Series B.  I'm using hickory chunks.  What's the right amount of wood chunks to use?  I hear a little goes a long way.  I have made the mistake before of putting the wood in with the charcoal before lighting.  When should I put the wood on the coals, and after putting the wood on the coals, when should the meat be put on the grate too smoke?  Ideally, I'd like to smoke meat in the 225 to 250 degrees range.  About how long should it take for the coals to be ready to introduce the wood, and then after introducing the wood, how long should it take before food can be introduced?
       
      Thanks

      Hi guys, I know kamado comparisons have been beaten to death in this forum, but I guess I'll give it one more stab.   Not sure if this was the correct forum for it, but didn't find any others that looked more relevant.
       
      Actually (hoping for this to be unique), I wanted to ask if any of you have owned (or still own) BOTH a Kamado Joe Big Joe and a Primo Oval XL.  From what I hear, they're both amazing cookers at a similar price point (included accessories with KJ taken into account), so I wanted to see who of you has experience cooking with each, and what you like about each of them and what needs improvement (in your opinion) for each.  I like Kamado Joe's warranty, included accessories, marginally larger cooking surface, and thicker shell; but I like that the Primos are made in the US, and its oval shape that provides better two-zone cooking.  Thinking of upgrading to full-ceramic from my Akorn (which I still really enjoy) with my tax return money. 
       
      I'm not trying to start any fights between the kamado tribes.  I've read lots about each of these on the other threads, but would enjoy recommendations and insight from people who own or have been able to cook on each of these great grills.  Thanks!

      Hi everyone. New Vision C owner. Getting ready to build a table. Does anyone know of plans for the Vision C ? I'm not what diameter to cut my hole. Depends on how high up the table intersects with the grill.  Also not sure how to account for the bump out in the front lower portion of the grill where the ash tray pulls out. 
       
      Any recommendations would be appreciated.
