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

First of all, huge kudos to you on your fabulous table!  It is a work of art that is highly functional.  Well done!


Seriously??  So sorry to hear someone stole your KJ Jr. set up — that stinks!!  I’d be upset about it too.

Hi there - can you provide the measurement from bottom of the bbq shelf apron to the ground. I checked all the pdf on drop box but no measurements given.


Lower shelf is 6".


Building this now in workshop and just realised I'm missing that :-)


Thanks so much table is awesome. My first go at something like this I'll be happy if mine turns out 50% as good.

Not too bad for my first go at woodworking - thanks again @12v_dub for the photos and detailed plans.


I used a kreg jig with a longer bit to drill pilot holes for 3/8" hardwood dowels for the frame. I added a few pocket screws to support the BBQ shelf but otherwise it's all poor man's mortoise and tenon :)


I don't have access to a planer/joiner as you can see but I'm happy!


The 4x4's cracked on me when they warmed up in the shop (pretty common when you have posts with the centre grain I'm told). Structurally they're fine buy I used an exterior wood epoxy to fill the cracks just in case.

      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,

      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
      are they too very different tools for different type cooks/food.

      Just received my Kamado Joe.  I had an egg years ago, way before technology introduced itself into the sphere.  There is so much information and so many products to chose from I am in information overload.  I will be doing brisket & pulled pork from time to time, but will mainly do chicken and the usual dinner staples.  Should I make the investment into something that is scalable with a fan added eventually, or just get a great wireless thermometer and trust proven cooking ability and forget about a fan.  Thanks for the replies.
