Until I get my grill shack built with a roof, I wanted a way to keep rain and snow out of my Louisiana grills 24 inch kamado top vent.  Smokeware doesn't and won't make their version to fit.  I do have one of the smokeware ones for my large grill dome and love it. 

 

I have searched extensively for a solution and found a possible solution.  I got a 9 inch galvanized stove pipe cap for reasonable price that only requires the kamado gasket seal for snug fit.  This does go over the existing vent top. I have yet to test but does fit nicely.

 

I don't remember the guidelines as to if I can put the link here or not but is on Amazon for about 16 bucks.  Cost more for shipping but still for around 35 dollars is a nice solution in my opinion.

      Hi Pit Boss pitmasters, I made a charcoal basket for my Akorn but it turned out it'll fit over PIt Boss Kamado from Costco like a glove - a nice discovery from my neighbor. It makes two zone cooking very convenient. It's laser cut stainless steel and sits inside the fire bowl. The bottom tray is about 3" from the top of the grate. Pics attached. I bought an Akorn a few years back and started to make accessories for it as a hobby. Now it seems can go on as a little biz. Thanks for the support, mahalo!

      Hi all, I'm been trying to find someone who sells or ships spiders to canada for the pit boss. I want to set up for direct and indirect grilling can't find parts anywhere. Cermic grill store won't ship to canada ad their canadian distributor is sold out. Anyone here have any ideas????

      Hi All,
       
      Firstly, not sure this is the right place but given it's about two brands, it didn't make sense to post in either the Kamado Joe or Pit Boss sections.
       
      I know there have been similar discussions before but not at this price point as far as I can see. Until this morning, I had pretty much decided to go with the Louisiana Grill (price and size) but then I noticed a further 10% discount on the KJs.
       
      Usage - Direct (replacing a weber 57cm kettle) and low and slow cooking
       
      In short, is it worth me spending the extra money for a KJ and why? 
       
      1. Louisiana Grills 24" (Costco UK) + Accessories - £738.89
      2. Kamado Joe KJ23RH Classic Joe Grill, 18", Red £809.10
      3. Kamado Joe Classic II 18-Inch Freestanding Ceramic Grill - £1,169.10
       
      1. Louisiana Grills 24" (Costco UK) + Accessories - £738.89
       
      Louisiana Grills 24" (60 cm) Ceramic Kamado Charcoal Barbecue - Black (CostCo) £599.89
      Nova - Multi-Level Cooking Accessory Grill for 24 Inch £129.00
      Nova - Barbecue Grill Remover Tool    £10
       
      Pros:
      - Largest (21.5 vs 18 grate)
      - Costco (UK) guarantee - Phone confirmed they will collect if it ever fails/I'm unhappy
      Cons:
      - Made by Auplex
      - Harder to find accessories in the UK (although not sure what else I'd need)
       
      2. Kamado Joe KJ23RH Classic Joe Grill, 18", Red £809.10
       
      pros:
      - Made by KJ
      - KJ customer service
      Cons:
      - Old design vs the Classic II
       
       
      3. Kamado Joe Classic II 18-Inch Freestanding Ceramic Grill  £1,169.10
       
      pros:
      - New design
      - Made by KJ
      - KJ customer service
      Cons:
      - Most expensive / probably out of my budget(!)
       
      Thanks  for reading and I'll really appreciate all your comments on this.

      I've posted some of this stuff before but figured I would consolidate a post with the accessories I use on my PB K24. I haven't spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars like some folks and know that others probably have better or different ways of accomplishing much of the same thing. I don't use any temp control gadget and don't really feel the need to. After gaining a couple years experience cooking on mine I can dial it in and maintain temps fairly easily. (BTW I did do the vent mods to eliminate any big leaks) Anyhow, these are the gizmos I use to help cook on the Pit Boss:
       
      Firebox Divider Charcoal Fire Grate for Most Standard Size Kamado Grills, 10.5-inch ~$35 I haven't even had a chance to use this yet but it looks well made and should help with two-zone cooking. I'm not certain this is really needed as I've been able to cope without it for the first few years doing two-zone cooks but hey it's a fun new gizmo. Pit Boss 76251 Heat Deflector, 24" ~$45 I know that these are now included standard with the grill. I had one break and PB/Danson's did replace without any problems. I use the OEM deflector a ton... it's used for all my Low and Slow Smokes (brisket, ribs, pork butt, etc), CI Dutch Oven cooks (roasts, stews, etc),  pizza cooks, and all my baking. Half Moon Heat Deflector Plate ~$20 These are 15" diameter and work well on the main lower grate to cook on the upper grate. I use these for two-zone cooking and also for a 2nd deflector in some cases, like for cooking pizza. These don't fit inside the legs of the OEM upper rack perfectly (more on that later). Also, I've split the OEM upper grate into two half moon grates to allow easier maneuvering inside the grill. Indirect Cooking Rack, Extra Large ~$35 This is an accessory that I thought I would use a lot more when I purchased it. I still use it as a second rack for pizzas and such but it isn't something I wouldn't buy again. Unlike the OEM upper grate you can get the (2) half moons installed under it without any interference. IIRC this cooking rack is 15" diameter with the legs protruding out another few inches. Outdoor Gourmet 14 in Preseasoned Round Griddle ~$13 This is absolutely one of the best accessories that I own ( I actually have 2) for my Kamado. I use it as a pizza stone up on the upper rack with both sets of deflectors in place and it works absolutely fantastic. I also, use this on the lower rack directly over the coals to cook my Philly cheese-steak sandwich meat.  Maverick ET-733 dual probe remote thermometer ~$35 I didn't provide a link because everyone has there own set-up for monitoring temps.  
      Of course there's all the other normal cooking stuff, utensils and the like for the grill.
       
      Firebox Divider:




       
      OEM Deflector with OEM Grates:


       
      OEM Lower Grate with Half Moon Deflector and OEM Half Moon Grate:


       
      OEM Deflector and Lower Grate with (2) Half Moon Deflectors and Upper Rack:

       
      Same as above with Cast Iron Griddle ready for pizza:

      Hi, I wanted to get some feedback regarding which grill to get. I have boiled it down to a few options:
      1) Primo round all-in-one $800
      2) Pit boss k24 from Costco $599
      3) Used BGE $800
       
      The pit boss is considerably cheaper at $599, and I hear in August they usually go on clearance for $350. As primo owners, I was hoping to get some feedback on after owning the primo, do you believe it is still worth the premium? I have read some people have had issues with Primo honoring their warranties, so that is a concern as well. Would you buy the Pit Boss knowing what you know today? Or would you still fork up the extra $ for the primo? Are there any large differences between the design and quality of the aforementioned brands? I really appreciate any help you may be able to offer. Thanks!
