I was looking around for some information on Kamato cookers, and thankfully stumbled upon this sight, before I go on.. THANKS!
I "babysat" my father in law's Large Green Egg for about a year, and got hooked on the thing. Sadly, It'll be a while before I have the $ to put into one of my own. I was on a site I frequent and saw a fella with a kamato style cooker for $50, I figgured it was worth a try. It is made of clay, at first I thought it was an early egg, but think its another company now. Either way, I took and cleaned it up, took it apart and cleaned everything. After some High temp engine enamel and new hardware its lookin pretty.
I found both the rutland gasket and the permatex copper here locally and put them on today.
I have read the warnings about high heat and clay, so I will definatly be taking that into account, and hope to fire her up this weekend.
Again, I appreciate the community's help in getting this project to this point.
