I have an Imperial kamado from the 1960’s that needs a replacement handle,bands,and hinge device.  Ant help ideas?

the top inside diameter is 18’”

 

You might try creating a post in the "Other Kamado" section of this forum.  This is an ongoing discussion on accessories and not really the best place to get an answer for your question since it's not related to this topic.

@John Setzler, I see that you recommend the iKamand in your post as the daily "go-to" controller but it looks like the Fireboard 2 has come out since the article and you seemed to like that quite a bit from the video demo and review that you made. The app certainly seems to have some cool features/functionality that the iKamand doesn't. At this point do you still recommend using the iKAMAND more or did the new FireBoard 2 make it to the top of the stack? Was considering the FB2 Drive model for my new Classic II.

I probably need to update the wording in that section of this post.  I am not using the iKamand any more as I like the Fireboard much better overall.

Traeger BIG Spatula

I tried looking for this tool, and it seems to no longer be available either at Amazon or a couple of the larger BBQ on-line retailers that I searched.  Thoughts as to a good alternative? 

 

Thanks

 Yes sir... I added one of these to my collection at half the price of the Traeger:

What is your thinking of the - - Joetessary

 

Thank You

 

Mr. Toad

Welcome, Mr. Toad.

 

Personal perspective here, you will almost certainly differ in detail,at least.  I got the Joetisserie as soon as I got my grill.  I thought I'd use it more often than I do.  It gets used maybe a couple times a month, primarily for whole chickens.  Obviously you can do more on it, it's just not part of my repertoire.  

 

For chicken, you can also get a great chicken on a kamado just spatchcocking it, or cooking half chickens.  The Joetisserie does a great chicken as well.  Looks cool, though.  

 

With my Classic I, there's no room on the grill to cook with the Joetisserie and anything else. So sides need to be cooked elsewhere.  With the deeper firebox of the Classic 3, you do have room to bake some potatoes, etc.  One of the benefits of the 3 that don't get mentioned much.

 

I'm glad I got it, but don't know if I'd get it again (at least at full retail).

My Joetisserie opinion is much like Boater’s above, although I use mine even less, maybe 2-3 times per year. Like Boater says, chicken can be done via other methods that are much easier. My favorite Joetisserie cook is dizzy pineapple of all things.

I'm not sure this is helpful information, but my Joetisserie was a gift, and it is the perfect gift item. When I use it, I love it. But I don't use it enough to justify the cost. If something happened to it, I would dearly love for someone to gift me a replacement, but I doubt I would buy one for myself.

I don't know if it was a relatively new addition to the list, or if I just somehow missed seeing it in previous readings, but I ordered the "Sparkr Wick" lighter last week and used it for the first time yesterday. That little bugger is awesome! Thanks for the recommendation.
