    I own one, its used for direct cooking. It is currently gathering dust somewhere in my garage.

    No one who owns an egg would DARE buy anything from that other company.

    But if you do a search for it, you might find one or two reprobates that own one and like it.

    Looks like it would do a job on your gasket anyway

    Sitting on gasket, the heat transfer? Just looks like it would.

    No more than the heat transfer you already get from the ceramics. I have not seen any negative posts on the KJ site about gasket damage.

    Hi there! One of the Reprobates here! So far, direct only, but at wildly different temps to achieve different results. Haven't see the need for indirect. Would be difficult to set up as well.

    Really impressed w/ the XL joetisserie. Obviously not an every day accessory, but definitely useful for certain cooks (think picanha, jerk pork, shawarma). Just another non BGE tool in the arsenal, no different than sous vide.
