New Kamado Joe Wire mesh gasket

Recommended Posts

Looks like the new gasket is finally available on-line, Its a bit pricey at $89 for the classic and $99 for the Big Joe, Can anybody confirm that it will work on the Pre-2017 Joes?

While that looks right, I would check with KJs CS and make sure it is a KJ product.  I am fairly certain 2017 joes are thicker than 2016 Joes.  

 

My wire gasket has held up much better than the felt on my other Joes.

Seems unlikely since the description says

 

(Also fits Char-griller Acorn Kamado)

 

I doubt KJ would be OK with that if it were an OEM product.

      I need your help! I have been doing tons of research and I am down to either the XL Big Green Egg for $1,024 at my local dealer or the Kamado Joe Big Joe for $1,800. I know I would need to spend another $500 ish dollars for accessories for the BGE but it is still overall cheaper. The main thing I like about the Kamado Joe is the upgraded gasket, it seems like such a pain to worry about the felt gasket (maybe it's not that bad). The other features of the Kamado Joe are nice, but not that important to me like the ash tray and the air lift dome. I would love to hear your thought from both sides to try and help me decide. I really appreciate your help as I am excited to replace my pellet smoker and finally play with real fire!

      Hey all, My name is Will, I WILL be a new Kamado Joe Big Joe owner in the next few days. Looking forward to some great smokes and grill outs! I also do a lot of All grain home brew beer for fun, because well, I like it better. And last but not least, I am ridiculously crazy about lawn care... anyway, im glad to be a part of the forum and reading through all the info. 
       
      I do have one question though, (and I hope this isn't already covered, and if it is, I apologize) but I can either get a grill from a somewhat local grill store (45 mins away) or from Costco. The guy from Costco will only be there till Sunday April 15, 2018 and I was curious if any y'all could help me out on this; Costco price and local grill store price is about the same but I was curious more about the taxes. I live in Texas, and I know regardless of any company's offer, Texas wants their cut, which is fine, but I read somewhere that Costco roadshow is tax free, has anyone else heard of that? if so it would be worth the extra $150 or so... plus Costco is closer.

      Hello!
       
      New to the forum, and wanted to share something I did with those that may be interested. First thing I noticed is that tables and carts for Kamado grills are not cheap. I did some hunting around online and found a stainless table I liked for a good price, Kamado Joe's KJ-SST, only to then learn it would not fit the Classic II because of the new air lift hinge. Well, I wasn't giving up yet, as I felt there had to be a way to make this work. I found measurements for the table and began brainstorming. My first thoughts were to cut slits in the rear of the table to allow the hinge frame to fit since it didn't need a ton of clearance to begin with, but decided even though I wouldn't of had to cut all the way through the rear of the table, it still would of been weak, and the table is open in the rear below the table top. Started looking at the hinge, and noticed there is a lot of excessive material in the black frame. After feeling good about my measurements, I decided to order the table. I took some final measurements once the table arrived, and determined where I would need to cut the hinge frame to keep the grill pretty much centered and 1 inch off the bottom for airflow. I took the plunge and cut out my measured sections of the hinge frame with a hacksaw, then filed sanded and repainted the edges. Overall went very well, and the pieces I removed from the frame had zero affect on the hinge performance or strength. I have included pictures of the results, and can regather measurements to those that may be interested in doing the same. I bought the table on Amazon for $399, which is a great deal compared to prices of other tables, and wanted to let others know this can be done. Best addition to my KJ Classic II so far. Happy grilling!
