Hi from England

Hey all, Craig here - I got my KJ Classic 2 a few days ago and have done a couple of test cooks with it already. I had a cheap as chips offset smoker before and despite being terrible, I was able to get 2 'good' 12hr smokes out of it before it broke down. Hence the upgrade to the KJ!

 

I'm already noticing a world of difference in the quality when you buy something built for purpose like this. It holds its temperature so well, it's unbelievable! I think it will be a while until I start looking at all the fancy upgrades that i'm sure exist for it, as i'm in complete awe of it's out of the box capability!

 

So far i've tried: 

 

- Homemade cheese burgers

- A reverse seared wagyu rump steak with charred asparagus and roasted sweet potatoes (this was pretty ambitious for me as it was my second cook on the beast!)

 

And tonight i'll try chicken for the first time with the KJ. 

 

All the best from Bedfordshire, England!

Thanks for the warm welcome - and for the attached reference PDF. I'm sure i'll be asking plenty of follow up questions in the forums in no time! All the best.

Craizer welcome to the forum Golf posted a great aid for learning your grill. What kind of chicken are you doin?

Thanks @len440, i've had a read through the guide and it's very informative! 

 

I did a few spice-rubbed chicken legs with some garlic and oregano infused breasts. With a side of fries and chargrilled vegetable skewers and a good English beer to wash it down! The moisture retention of the KJ is truly incredible. 

 

Do you have any local recipes you'd recommend for me to try? I'd love to expand some of my recipes. All the best
