i bought the primo xl over the BGE to be able to take advantage of the 2 sided feature. however, i have to pile the charcoal so high when i want to grill over direct heat on one side that it feels like a wasteful amount of charcoal. what is the trick to bringing the charcoal up closer to the grate without having to build a charcoal mountain ..read more

A couple of days ago I ran the Joe up to about 800° to do a thorough cleaning burn of all components, minus the grates. Today I disassembled the thing. brushed all the parts down, and finished with the vacuum. I now have it prepped and ready for some rotisserie chicken ..read more

Louisiana Grills kamado hinge issue
Smoking Meat Forum » Kamado Cookers
by rbstern

I bought a really nice, used Louisiana Grills kamado on craigslist. The version they sold at Costco a while back. Heavy, well built, good accessories. I'm having a bit of trouble getting the lid to stay all the way open, and I think it is the hinge. The hinge has springs, keeps the kid about halfway open. Looking at the mechanism, the pivot post on the hinge has a cutout that makes me think it is supposed to move when trying to move the lid all the way open. It was squeaky as hell, and...

Stick with Kamado, or something else?
Smoking Meat Forum » Kamado Cookers

My first (and only) smoker so far is a Vision Classic Kamado that I bought from Costco about 8 years ago. I didn't really know what a Kamado was at the time, but I wanted a charcoal grille, and it looked cool, so that's what I bought. In the years since, I've taken up smoking (mainly pork butts and briskets), and I've been successful with it (I added a BBQ Guru DigiQ2 several years ago, and then more recently a Firebird 2 Drive to get the wifi functionality). I also have a flat-top... Read more ..read more

Anyone have a blaze?

I'm looking at used kamados in my area and for the past month have been sold on the Primo XL due to the oval size but Blaze has a promo right now with a free rotisserie kit and a price drop making it 1600 and primo brand new is 1619. now the size is dramatically different at 400 sq in vs 680 sq in. however i think you could find aftermarket stacking racks if you truly wanted (say from Grill Dome) for the Blaze since it's 20" like the average kamado. The advantage here is it'll never crack. I... Read more ..read more

Anyone switch from pellet to kamado?
Smoking Meat Forum » Kamado Cookers

Situation: I have a Grilla Silverbac which I love, and a Weber kettle for hot fast grilling. Been thinking of getting a kamado to replace my weber as my grill and eventually I'll do side by side smokes to see if I like the smoking better than my pellet smoker. If i did, I'd sell the pellet and just have my kamado. Anyone make this switch? The only one I'm considering is the primo XL because for me to commit to this, it has to be near the capacity of my current smoker. 680 sq in is still less... Read more ..read more

I am wondering what other peope have experienced with having one (or others like it). I too hope more people use this forum, I for one would learn a lot from it ..read more

BK Keg 2000 - water issue

by bulump

I've used BSG/BKK since 2010 and have always had the same 'issue'. Well, I don't know if it's an issue, but I am confident that on my BSG, it resulted in rusting/decomp of the area around the bottom vent. My issue is that water is condensing and draining out of my bottom vent. I do use a countersink of an Al pan filled with water to offset any temp spikes. Has anyone else had this and should I worry? Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening ..read more

Deflector stones/plates for a Vision Pro S

1y ago
Is there an aftermarket stone or deflector plate for visions grills? I have the large stone and have had it for about a year or two. I went out side and was having trouble with a new lump charcoal holding temp and removed the lava stone and noticed is is cracked halfway across the stone. I would much rather have something that is longer so the ends of ribs or brisket don’t get burnt. Is there something else out there? I see aftermarket or other offerings for other manufactures but not much... Read more ..read more
