  • I have heard Kamado is working on a new style replacement gasket for the old style Kamado's. I think they are working on an adhesive the end user can manage. Apparently what ever they use on the newer model at the factory is not as simple as it look…
  • I make my pies on parchment paper. It's easy to pull after about a minute or so on the stone.  I trim the paper to the size of the pie to keep the paper from burning.
  • Jupiter Jim said: Why don't you send that picture to Chad at KAB and see what he has to say about it? Most of my cooks are high temp cooks, I do a lot of searing on cast iron with dome temps up around 600 plus my share of pizza cooks…
  • At the risk of sounding like I'm confused or something, I posted that link because I know so many folks here really like the High Que.  Personally I never bought one because I never liked the spacing of the rods on the High Que.  Two years ago I bou…
  • I recently hit a roadshow and bought 8 bags total of the "Big Block"  but haven't used any yet. I did open a bag and it had a piece on top that looked like it wouldn't fit in the Joe Jr that followed me home. I've had FOGO in the past and the KJ stu…
  • Like I said OP, mention Blackstone and you will be fine here,
  • When ever I see a new brand of lump, unless its expensive and feels like crumbs in the bag I'll give it a shot.  My problem is after doing a little straitening up in my shed this past weekend I realized I have seven different brands of charcoal. Thr…
  • Glad it worked out. I heard they were a little backed up because they are abandoning the old fire box for the new design which I feel is superior to the old one and its caused a delay that will last until supplies are adequate.  FWIW, I feel it ok …
  • VB_egger said: What were the prices on the big joe, did you happen to look? Price on the Big Joe is $1499 and includes a free Joe JR (regular price for the JR is $399) which is an outstanding deal if you ask me. If I didn't have 2 LBGE's …
  • tarheelmatt said: bruce527 said: I'm looking for some suggestions on gloves to use to remove the platesetter when the Egg is hot or to take cast iron cookware off the grid. I have pair of welder's gloves, but they just don't cut it.  I…
  • BBQ Guru is supposedly coming out with two new devices this month. It might be worth it to wait if for nothing else, just to compare.
  • Cook looks fantastic. I'm thinking about a joetisserie  after seeing some nice write ups on doing prime rib on them. 
  • Awesome! I did pies myself tonight, but like always, no pictures here.
  • So many Sonos posts here. I got into Sonos last winter and now have 2 Play 5's and 3 Play 1's. One of the Play 5's is on the patio with my egg. These things rock. And lucky for me my son gets a 25% discount on Sonos from his job!
  • Any cook over 60 minutes will need at least three beers so plan accordingly. Like @shesgoteggs says, it is an outdoor oven and it also is an outdoor cooktop.
  • VB_egger said: What were the prices on the big joe, did you happen to look? I didn't take notice but I'll be back there next weekend and check. The wife gave me the OK to get a Joe Jr for myself   and I'll pick up a few more bags of charc…
  • If you can't find it local these guys have the best total price including shipping I can find online. I just had 4 jars and it was $10.99 or something to deliver. Their price per jar was only $4.99 per quart. Got here in under 4 days also. http://w…
  • Another vote for Don Pepino. I believe it's made with Jersey tomatoes from the area I live in which is what makes it so good.
  • I like the grip these give. They say 540 degrees but if you are quick you can handle higher then that.
  • I've got one and really like it. It sits next to my egg. I use it to stage food and for somewhere to put the hot grates and racks when needed. I store most of my stuff on the shelf when it cools off. Plus the bottom can be used to store a bag of cha…

  • I love Mahi on the egg! Looks great.
  • Fox news never reported any fake news the last twenty years did they?  No one with a skin had to ban them did They?
  • never mind, not worth it.
  • I've gotten free samples, Dizzy Pig pins and stickers, and Dizzy Pig hats free on orders I've placed in the past. Shipping might be high if ordering one bottle but I usually order 4 or more at a time which makes it quit reasonable. Their 'ish rubs …
  • Welcome! I like the dually idea myself. If not, do you have a Harbor Freight near you? Should be able to get any kind of wheel you might need there.
  • Was it windy, more so then a normal day? That can affect things until a good draft gets going or when the fire is dying. It's rare but when the wind is 20mph or more coming from a certain direction I can smell some blow back when my fire is either…
  • Laughed when I saw the title, then laughed harder as I scrolled down the pictures. I am really sorry you ruined dinner though. Cook and learn I guess. Make sure to show us your next try.
  • Awesome table. A concrete top has been on my wish list for a couple years, I just haven't had the time to do anything about it. Great job. Do you mind giving a detail or maybe a picture of how the casters are attached? They are not just screwed int…
