Custom Cedar Table for Kamado Joe


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Few years back I posted my build on a custom cedar table for my old Char-griller Akorn kamado. I have recently purchased and upgraded to Kamado Joe Classic II and am currently building a new table for it. It is all being made using western red cedar. I will be updating progress periodically. 

Overall dimensions are as follows: 84" (L) x 36" (W) x 32" (H) 

Grill will be placed in the middle with 2 lower shelves on each side. 

 

Picture of the old grill set up.

HI guys, I have recently moved to a new house so wanted to share my new setup. It's nice to have a covered porch for rainy days     

Another progress made. Lower bottom shelves are pre-cut and pre-fitted. Middle section is plenty strong. I had my uncle stand on top of it which is roughly half of the grill weight lol.  All ther

Great, 12v_dub!  I am also in the beginning stage of building a table for my Classic - also coincidentally, out of western red cedar.

My overall dimensions will be: 75" (L) x 33" (W) x 30" (H). When I get to the stage of some significance, I will also post some photos.

Red Cedar.  I am considering a similar project. What's the wood cost?  Are you using a local lumber yard?

I want to build around the KJ.  I.e. slide the KJ in out of the place it sits. Then finish building table. I may try for some work space  in front of the KJ,  rather than off to the side. Not too much in front to avoid a long reach to the KJ.

I work for at a cedar manufacture so i'm taking advantage of wholesale pricing on lumber, but Cedar has skyrocket in pricing since last year. a linear foot of a 2x4 (s4s) is $1.47 and 4x4 (s4s) is 3.87 

 

I am using rough cedar and running it to my specific dimensions.

All there is to do, is to finish the top section, cut out the hole opening for the grill and sand everything down.

      Does anyone have any experience with grilling whole squid? I toured my local "international" (their term) grocery store today and one item I saw was fresh whole squid. 
       
      I'd like to take a crack at grilling it, but don't want to waste money winging it. Any tips/guidelines you have would be appreciated! Happy grilling

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I’m looking for any tips on how to cook a full packer brisket on my KJ Classic 2.  To date I have only smoked brisket twice; one time each of the Point & the Flat.  After seeing them in person at Costco it doesn’t look like it will fit on my KJ.  How do you make it work?
       
       I am not sure if I posted this question in the correct thread.
       
      Take Care,
      Pablo

      I have been a long time member here, I started my Kamado 4 years ago on a BJ special Brinkman, now out of business. Well my firebox cracked as did my place setter, but that thing taught me a lot about cooking on a Kamado and ensuring how to seal it up and overcome that models challenges. 
       
      Well today I join the Egghead club in a big way with the BGE XL. I am super stoked to get grilling on my new baby.

      Want to purchase one of these accessories.  My question is can the soap stone do everything the cast iron can do plus more?
       
      I imagine the soapstone wouldnt get as hot as the cast iron?
      I imagine the cast iron cooking, more food would possibly stick and more maintenance
       
      or
       
      are they too very different tools for different type cooks/food.
