First cook on big joe

Chicago griller

Recommended Posts

So I just got my big joe a couple weeks ago but the deflector plates were missing and kamado joe said they are on back order... anyways I couldn't wait so I put in the divider in the fire box and cooked them 2 zones like I would with my weber kettle. Put some prime ribeyes in and the outcome was surprisingly well. I heated the grill up to 600 and seared them... I only had them on for less then a minute but burnt them more then I wanted to. Then put them on the other side and cooked them for about 5 mins. The internal when pulled out was at 145. I actually really enjoyed the crisp on the outside and it was still pretty juicy inside. I'm going to have to tweak a couple things but really looking forward to continuing my winter grill sessions.


Next will be a rib comparison with the pit barrel. 


Btw... I am no photographer so I apologize for the pics. Included a pic of my line up cooks.
