  1. Past hour
  2. I appreciate your response, but after seeing your vertical up close at a design show when getting ready to buy the 750 and now the Kamado I didn't see anything in the engineering, materials or design to warrant a price anywhere near the ask. I could only assume it translates into your heritage products like the 750. But you have a heck of a brand and, no doubt, a loyal customer following. Assuming you all are staying busy, it's a great business model.
  3. Today
  4. Having devoured multiple Porter Road chicken products, I think they are definitely a winner. Chicken pieces are all meaty and very well trimmed. Very reasonable option for online fowl. Now I’ll have to try some cow or pig. But great so far.
  5. The price of a Kalamazoo is directly related to the cost of building it (materials, components and labor). As head of product, my primary mission is to ensure our grills are the absolute best, and that means not cutting corners in engineering or production. I never tell anyone "you should buy a Kalamazoo." I only tell people if I could afford any grill I wanted, I would choose the Kalamazoo. The pricing makes them unattainable for most people, including myself, I will stand behind the design and the quality without hesitation. I think the Alfresco is truly a good grill. I am sure you'll get many years of enjoyment from it. The same is true of the Komodo Kamado. I have nothing but respect for these products.
  6. Yeah, it's very hard to imagine that price for a Kamado that is much smaller than a 32, doesn't have rotisserie, and I don't see a pizza stone there either. It's biggest claim is that the shape promotes "offset" fires -- bad wording invoking images of an offset smoker. Should say "two-zone", but a 32 with a basket splitter does that and more. Heck, a Kamado Joe with Divide and Conquer will give you that much AND rotisserie option AND pizza stone AND...a MUCH lower price. Unless there's more than meets the eye, you are paying for the Kalamazoo label, not the grill.
  7. I long thought the Kalamazoo Hybrid was my dream conventional/gas grill. But after seeing the prices of their vertical smoker and now their "Kamado", I'm convinced they are simply in the business of fleecing consumers. Went with Alfresco for my gas grill.
  8. DJM, you understand it correctly. The cooking grate up top has only one position. The fire grates can be adjusted into three different positions. You can, however, use multiple positions for the fire as part of the same cook. You can also, if you choose to do so, cook food on the fire grates down inside the body of the grill. There are three fire grates included. One "main" fire grate, which is always placed in the lowest position. Two half-width adjustable fire grates can be placed in either of the two higher positions. They can be placed side-by-side on one level to fill it; or they can each be on a different level. These adjustable grates are also used to hold a water pan or cordierite diffuser if you like. The fire grates are cut from 1/4-inch stainless steel plate (same as the cooking grates). I hope this information is helpful.
  9. Maybe that has something to do with KJ coming out with a pellet kamado.
  10. Wait a minute...the links say Masterbuilt now owns Kamado Joe too?! That means Masterbuilt owns both Primo and KJ. What the hey? Edit: Oh wait...never mind...I somehow equated Masterbuilt with Broilmaster. Masterbuilt is the electric smoker people. Wow. That's...a weird marriage. Masterbuilt and KJ.

  13. Amazing ribs are not paid reviews.. I know I sent Meathead grills to play with. Here are a couple of links ref. Kamdo Joe being bought by a Private Equity Group. http://vrapartners.com/news/vra-partners-advises-kamado-joe-majority-recapitalization-dominus-capital/ https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/dominus-capital-invests-in-kamado-joe-300717060.html
  14. Yesterday
  15. And so some slapped on wings.
  16. As long as Lumber Jack pellets aren't involved then long live the cold smoker - LOL
  17. Maybe amazing ribs are paid reviews? Although they rank the products, I haven’t seen them bag a product out, instead, they stay kinda quiet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Clever Aussie. Summer is coming to Australia soon enough and once it arrives I heard it's SO hot downunder that you can cook your pizza on the hood of your car. Oh, great looking pizza
  19. Say it ain't so Joe not here in good ol'America. You know just about everything should have a disclaimer and a buyer beware notice on it. Have you ever looked at all natural fruit drinks. The packaging leads you to believe it was squeezed an hour ago. It'll say 100% juice in bold letters and down a little on the package it'll say a flavored blend of these juices from concentrate with other natural flavors and ingredients. We are all conditioned enough now to believe that it's not true and what the package states doesn't necessarily mean that is what's inside. I have suspicion the plaintiff may be a lawyer looking for a quick settlement. Heck, you know and I know the Easter Bunny ain't real but, Santa, he's a definite. It's kind of like the vegan whopper, if it taste like a burger..must be a burger. I got a stick burner, my condolences to all you pellet burners
  20. How true. There was a time in college as I remember late at night you just couldn't get enough of it. Musta turned the corner cause I can't find that restaurant anywhere
  21. What next? Easter Bunny’s fake too? https://www.classaction.org/news/class-action-alleges-traeger-pellet-grills-uses-flavored-oils-to-mask-true-quality-of-bbq-wood-pellets
  22. I don't know what it takes, outside of sending them a grill, for Amazing Ribs to do a real evaluation. Several high profile grill manufacturers that they've never put their hands on.
  23. The bane of all American-Chinese food - an abomination of true agrodolce!
  24. Sorry Paul, missed this. Unfortunately I have not been able to use it for a few weeks. Hoping to get back at it soon!
  25. Don't linger to long down in that hole, someone may say, "Off with their head". Not to shoot myself in the foot but the Chinese call it sweet and sour sauce. However I like the neighborhood your in, it's sweeter and refined. Possibly a side with lamb, just thinking.
