First cook on recently referbed kamoto cooker

I managed to get my first cook done with the little cooker I recently redid, I had a really hard time keeping the temp down in this thing, it really wants to get up there, but it came out well. I had my main smokers running for the family reunion, but my little brother spiced up half of a Boston Butt and we put it on the little cooker.

I'm afraid these wont fit

But this one did without any problems

Little thing likes to run hot

I didnt manage to get pictures after the cook, I was feeding 50 folks and it took all my energy to process everything else I had going. But with some adjustments I think I can get this thing running really well. I'm going to make a cedar table on wheels for it so I can wheel it in and out of the basement.

If anyone has any pointers they can share from cooking on a small egg I would really appreciate it. I couldn't keep the temp below 300 without snuffing out the lump.

Thanks again

    Nice work on the restoration! What's the grill diameter? Looks similar in size to a Small BGE.
    It looks like you cooked that butt direct. I'd recommend that you see if you can get a Woo ring from the Ceramic Grill Store ( and a ceramic stone to put in there so you can cook indirect at a lower temp.

  • Its right at 13", so very similar to the small big green egg. I am planning on setting up a pizza stone soon, Ill have to look into the woo ring, I have seen them mentioned while surfing through the site, I'll have to look some more.
