  1. Sneak Peak ~ KK 3/8" A36 Baking Steel

    That is really nice!
  2. 32BB on the way to MA

    I was ready to order a Lang before I discovered the KK web site. Never looked back after.
  3. Which side tables

    I bought the teak side tables for two reasons. I think the teak looks better contrasted against the tile and stainless of the KK (and when/if they need refinishing, I will happily refinish them). The other reason is an annoyance issue with the sun reflecting off the horizontal SS surface, generally blinding me right before I need to look into a dark grill, plus the heat gain of the table surface. I have a Viking SS gas grill and have put up with these issues from the SS side tables for a dozen years. If you have a covered outdoor kitchen, you may not have the latter issues.
  4. Spinning a rib roast.

    Both the charcoal baskets for my one year old 23" have the same issue. They fit correctly with the handles running front to back (on the left and right, using Tyrus' wording) but are 3/8" and 1/2", respectively, out of round and therefore too wide to seat in the firebox correctly when turned 90 degrees (so the charcoal splitter is parallel to the front) as in Shuley's picture. I haven't yet bought the rotisserie so having the splitter only on the left or right side hasn't become an issue. After reading this thread, I put my splitter basket in a long clamp to squeeze down the wide part across the basket. There is significant rebound in the steel (Darn it, Dennis!), but I'll see if it redistributes the wide part just enough to fit at 90 degrees in the firebox after a few days in the clamp. Otherwise, I'll have to scrape off part of the firebox rim to get it to fit when I finally get a rotisserie. Jon

    Thanks for the explanation. Jon

    I find it annoying when he tapes over the logo, especially after announcing it as a Komodo earlier. Jon
  7. New Anova Sous Vide Circulator

    I've thought about this method off and on for quite a while. I almost ordered one a few times, but the various problems with the units some of the commenters have experienced always stopped me from completing the order at the normal price. The discounted price of entry of this new generation unit is compelling so I ordered one to give it a try. Jon
  8. Sneak Peak ~ KK 3/8" A36 Baking Steel

    In reading some bumped threads today, it seems the local CNC guy(s) has/have thwarted the desires of many KK aficionados over the past couple of years.
  9. New Pancake Cooker

    Does the unit have a built-in adjustment method for level or do you have to shim it?
  10. Hammered KK

    Great job in the restoration! I've been following the progress and you have done remarkable work on this KK, especially given its terrible state when you began.
  11. Yeast Donut or Cake Donut?

    Always yeast, never cake. Unless there are no yeast, then always cake.
  12. Foil or not to Foil, that is THE Question ?

    No wrap, but with a deflector.
  13. Hammered KK

    Thanks for the update. I was wondering about this project. Jon
  14. Project Smoke ~ Season 3

    Even better than the goat video, this shows the true size of the 42!
  15. Cold Smoker w/Pump

    Very nice solution.
