As usual great job John. Your videos make the whole process clear and accessible for some one who was never exposed to Kamado cooking.


EDIT---it is kind of wild to see videos of a brand new Joe--it kind of reminds me of the new never used enameled cast iron that Giada uses on her cooking shows.


I just had to mention that ---but it in no way takes away from the videos. It is your videos that convinced me to try Kamado cooking to begin with. I have always admired  the quality and clarity that are present in your videos.

John a great series that covers just about every thing one would need to know. BTW I miss that sound of the KJ lump being dumped into the kamado. It is so dense that it  amost sounds like  chunks of glass as it is dropped and I love the mellow smell that it has as it burns.

Just received the Kamado Joe Classic (stand alone) today. I was a little surprised it came with the divide and conquer but had a single piece heat deflector. I thought the D & C included the half moon deflectors?? I saw they're only 16 bucks on Amazon, so I'll probably just pick them up with some othe accessories. I ordered a pizza stone as well but was told 6-8 weeks from BBQguys for the stone.

Exited to try it out, any first cook suggestions?
