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.

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.

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

      Anyone ever try this? Will it fit my vision pro series c?  These things are beautiful in stand alone version, however I'm not really concerned about the aesthetics but more about functionality. The one for the Weber kettle  looks like it does a nice job. Thanks in advance for any information.

      I'm looking for the cast iron chimney piece for a Classic Joe. I've been using a SmoBot vent and it would be nice to have it always mounted to one chimney for overnight smokes and have another I can use for high-temp and regular cooks.

      Quick question guys whenever I see someone interested in buying a used Ceramic cooker doesn’t matter the brand the topic of warranty comes up especially in regards to the fire boxes. My question is if you bought a used Ceramic kamado cooker and eventually the fire box broke then you make the decision to purchase a new fire box at that point you will have a full warranty on that Ceramic part correct.

      I currently own two Primos, which I love. In the future, I would like to get a third ceramic grill: either the Primo XL, KJ Big Joe, or the BGE XL. I have a local dealer for the BGE, which is a big advantage to me. However, after reading some posts here, and researching BGE's warranty, I came across the part where using any non-BGE accessories void the warranty.  I am not a fan of the BGE deflector plate, and would prefer to use the set up with split plates from the Ceramic Grill Store. I know that there is probably no way BGE would ever know that someone used such aftermarket products, but I am interested to know if anyone has reached out to BGE or had an experience with them that would indicate whether they would actually void a warranty if they found out. I have read a lot of posts from 2012 when this statement was added to the warranty, and people's opinions about whether it would be enforced, but I haven't found any posts about first-hand experiences out there. 
       
      Any thoughts from current BGE owners, or anyone with insights, would be appreciated.

      Would anyone here know where I may be able to find the hinge assembly for a large big green egg?  The shell is in good shape but the hinge, bands and firebox have seen better days.  I would rather purchase used vs buy new if anyone has an old one laying around.  Thanks for reading! - J
