KJ - Costco Road Show

There is a KJ roadshow coming to the Costco in Winston-Salem NC. I am considering buying a KJ jr. I understand from previous post on this that the Jr is $399 at the roadshow. Does anyone know what comes with that price?  Platesetter? Ash tool?  Thanks

    They don't have a PS per se, but it has a woo type apparatus that holds an indirect piece.  The holder can be used for both raised direct, or indirect with the stone.  Also has an ash tool.

    Can do direct and indirect right out of the box. You should hit their website to see how it all fits together. You should like it. I love my Jr.

    Be sure to buy a few bags of charcoal while you're there.

    The Roadshow is hitting my Costco starting on Thursday and I'll be dropping in to buy 6 or 8 bags of lump.

    @HeavyG    I am hoping the normal package you mention is what you get at roadshow price. If I do it I will have a green large and a red Jr.

    It is. Went to Roadshow in Charlotte in May. Still on the fence about swinging by W-S and getting the Jr I didn't buy...

    Mine came with Jr, deflector, woo-type holder, ash tool,  grate gripper, and box of starters.

    It will. They don't sell "stripped down" packages at the Roadshows - same stuff as normal retail.

  • Such a tough decision to make. I almost bought one at Myrtle Beach last week, but held out. I saw they are coming to Winston, and am trying to convince myself that I don't need it. But it's very tough....!!!!

    They stopped making the brown bags. Only red bags now. The red bags are South American lump, burns long and hot!  

    I recently pulled out out an old brown bag. It is less dense, but burns hot and smells so sweet when lit.

    Yes every you need to cook. 

    Kamado, stand/handles, heat deflector, ash tool, firebox/ring, powder coated top vent and SS cooking grate.

    i agree stock up on as much lump as you can afford!

    Make sure you get there early. I hit up the Myrtle Beach Costco on 7/1(ended the 3rd) and all they had left was 2 Classics and 6 2-packs of lump. I bought 2 packs of the lump to give it a try. I don't know how busy W-S Costco is, but at least when I worked at Costco, the Myrtle Beach one was the slowest warehouse(in terms of sales) on the entire East Coast and Canada.

    Not sure what the heck I was thinking. I think I just come here to tell my girlfriend...."look, told you I was normal!"  =)

    Used this past weekend to roast some ribeye caps to be finished on the medium.  Medium had potatoes on first at 450°.  

    I use it a lot for small cooks.  If I need two Eggs, the Med and Jr gets the call.  Large is really for larger cooks and low and slows.

  • Did you get the caps on Greensboro? I can never find Prime meat there, but maybe I am looking in the wrong place
    LBGE
  • Are the minimax'x around 499--or maybe they are higher.  I have a small already to go with large so can't really add anything.  I did look at them at our costco--draft door not as well constructed and I did not like their daisy wheel as much.  Someone mentioned they sell the demo ones they have open at end of road show at cheaper prices--not sure if you could score a discount on the Jr or not--they don't cook on them and seems they would want to sell them rather than haul them back to the store or warehouse not in a box.  They generally have one of each size on the floor.

    They have them in Greensboro, but I got those at Winston-Salem last week.  Prime stuff is on the right side of the meat section, near the bread, in Greensboro.

    I love my Joe Jr. from Costco. It came with the stone for indirect, grate tool, ash tool, and fire starters as described above.

    The lump charcoal is also fantastic!

    They sell the demos during the show and throw in goodies. For example buy the BigJoe demo and get the Jr for free. That is a 24 inch Kamado and a Jr for $1200. From what I have seen on other forums that deal tends to sell out 5 minutes into the first day.  The classic size come with "stuff". Not sure exactly what. I think CI accessories.

    The best price I've seen in my surrounding cities is $640 for the MM..  That is why I'm considering the KJ Jr.

    I'm sorry $540 is the cheapest I've found for the MM.
