  • Re: Inability to do 2 zone cooking on a round kamodo?

    Two zone cooking is a combination of direct IR from burning lump and shadowed or indirect convection heat. The XL is big enough you can put a brick in the center of the grate, load lump in one half and get true two zone cooking at the grid level. If you don't use a brick the fire will spread to the whole firebox. The LBGE gets pretty tight if you try this, IMO. 
    I have a large Primo and MBGE, like them both. I can warm twice bakers indirect while cooking a chicken raised direct in the Primo, can't do that in my MBGE. For reverse sear the Primo does a good job, cooking at 225ºF indirect and then open the vents and move the meat to the direct side with the grid on the firebox. (The Primo grids suck as they are not really reversible as claimed) I use my MBGE SS grid sitting on the Primo fire box. The oval shape has some advantages.

    @SGH - yeah, I agree, the "pocket" would be big enough but I don't think the strap would go around your waist,
  • OK, this is a first....

    I've had lots of lump treasures over the years, rocks, concrete, ashphalt, plastic, bottle caps and other hunks of metal, insulation and even the odd coin but never a dust mask. When I first reached in the bag and felt something soft it scared the hellout of me. First thought it might be 1/2 of a bikini top. Glad to see the kiln guys at FOGO Quebracho are working safely....
  • Re: Relocating the BGE Overseas

    Why not buy one there? Look into the pricing, I think it was BBQ Galore had the BGE monopoly in Oz - their website now shows KJ. 

    @stem33 - his name is Aussie - go figure, eh? Look him up on the everywhere map...
  • Re: thermoworks thermocouple probe vs maverick?

    I did try a baby monitor with my 8060, forgot that we bought the kids a video version, worked fine. 

    Maverick sent me some new probes under warranty and they are working great, no idea why, but the two units even seem to sync faster. 

    I'll keep the monitor until the DIL wants it back if she has another....
