Please Help! Condensation getting into the iKamand during long cooks!

Recommended Posts

I have a Kamado Joe Classic and started a pork butt last night at midnight.  When I woke up at 6am I noticed that the temp reading was way off and the ikamand was acting weird.  When I went to check it out there was smokey liquid dripping from the ikamand from everywhere.  The temp dropped to the low 40's last night and was humid.  Now the ikamand will not connect to the internet and won't work.  Is there any way to prevent what I think is condensation dripping from the lower vent?

Gen 1 or Gen 2 iKamand?

Go to the KJ web site and send an email to Customer Service.  They will get back to you.  It will not be until Monday, but I have

found their customer service to be excellent.

I had a similar thing (I think) with my PartyQ. Eventually figured it out.  If I don't get the cover on and it rains, some moisture will get into the kamado. The next time I use it, everything will look dry, but the heat will start to release the water. If I'm not going for 400+ (unlikely if I'm using a controller) there's not enough heat at the very bottom to evaporate the moisture. It'll pool at the bottom and into the fan housing. One time I even had ice form in there.

Will do.  Or I will give them a call Monday so I can talk to them in person.

 

 

I’ve never been able to connect via phone.  But they are awesome.  When you email them, include some pics.
