  • Re: Tell me about the Joe Jr.

    I like my Joe Jr, even though it doesn't have the screen door on the bottom vent.  That can be a deal breaker if you plan on grilling on a wooden deck or near your house.

    The triangle thingy lets you do raised grate or indirect with the stone.  I haven't tried doing pizza yet, but, I did get the extra pizza stone since another forum says you need the indirect stone on the bottom and a pizza stone on top.

    The triangle thingy also let's you use a wok without a wok ring.  I tried it once and it was impossible to set the temps.

    Here's my first pork tenderloin I ever made last night on the Joe Jr.

  • Re: Small BGE

    I've hear some smalls doesn't get above 400 for indirect cooks. I picked up a used one last month that seems to be in that situation. For grilling or L&S, it's great! It comes to temp pretty quickly too.

    Maybe its me. I didn't have all fresh lumps in there and I had just enough lumps to reach the top of the firebox. But, I do the same on the large and it can reach 500+ indirect. Someone more experienced with the small could shed more light.
  • Re: Humphrey Charcoal in Harrisburg, PA

    Is Humphrey available at stores in Harrisburg or along I-81/I-78?  I do an annul drive from Atlanta to NY/CT area and would like to pickup a few bags along the way to try.
