I purchased a built-in Classic Kamado Joe last week, and am trying to finalize the design of my BBQ island. I have three installation questions:
1) Does anyone have a cover recommendation for a built-in classic Kamado Joe (Same size as BGE Large model)? I have searched online but haven't found a suitable cover. I need something that is approximately 5" longer than the dome opening.
2) My countertop is granite, and there will be about a 1/2" gap between the granite and the kamado. I will build the kamado internal support structure out of waterproof material, but I would still like to use this area for storage and am trying to figure out how to keep water out (besides the cover). I had the idea of using some stainless steel flashing around the kamado where it meets the granite. Has anyone tried or seen something similar, or any other recommendations?
3) How much venting does a built-in kamado require, particularly for the bottom vent? I have a few louvered vents and an access door, but would prefer not installing the louvered vents unless necessary.
