  1. Thanks that make lots of sense !
  2. I ended up getting 2 ‘straight probes’ while running them in between the kid and the seal would work fine I would be fir ever annoyed seeing the the hole that Dennis provisioned not being used. the smart fire works very well. I’ve noticed the smart fire when it blows above 80% up is pushing smoke out where there are gaps between stainless steel and the tiles, such as the tampers or the opening fit the gas - I figure because it’s blowing horizontal. Definitely Better to heat soak up close to temp before using but otherwise great to be able to nip down to the pub and check up on how things are going
  3. Yep. nah. Tried them both ways. Your right it would need a lot of bending to get them through I’ll sus it out with the smart fire dudes.
  4. Hi All, I brought the smart fire today. I’ve seen the app which is great to the tech part is sweet. I had a few issues with setup an was able to message the company who are based in Australia with the guy offering to drop off a new one if I didn’t get it sorted - customer service is great. The fan/adaptor “almost” fits. I had to go around once with electrical tape to ensure it was snug. at this point I thought I was home as that was my main concern. the temperature prongs for the food are curved ( see video below attached) so you can get them through the hole that is provisioned by Dennis. therefore the recommendation from smart fire is run the over the seal between the lid and base. @DennisLinkletter My main concern if whether this will damage the seal and will I turn have air loss when not using the smart fire. i assume I’d be able to return tomorrow but thought I’d see what you all thought wet running cables over the seal.

    Rotisserie setup

    Great tkobo , all makes sense now to find a place to cut the stainless steel rod.

    Rotisserie setup

    Assuming it’s the motor - any tips for one which will work with 240 volts in Australia would be great
  7. Hi there, first time setting up the rotisserie. Just making sure I’m not missing something obvious. the rotisseri seems to fit fine I study the KK. But I’m having issues attaching the motor and attachment seems too long OR this motors socket isn’t deep enough. Also - there’s a stainless steel pointy bit - im mot sure when u use that and unscrew the other....

    Brickets or Lump

    Cheers clearly lump for pizza and I’ll give the brickets ontop of lump a go for the next low & slow cook
  9. Hello All, im having a crack at pizza tonight. I’m thinking to use briquets over lump coal as they are cheeper given the hot burn, does that make sense? I imagine lumps better for low and slow from a taste Perspective but wasn’t sure if there were other reasons not to use briqets
  10. I was playing it conservative so went foil - will definitely wrap in paper next time!
  11. It shouldn't be a surprise but first up Brisket was well above expectations. Cooked for 4.5hours up to 165 then a further 3.3 hours up to 202. hardest part was trimming as I’d not done that before. A big tick for the KK again
  12. Unbelievable! A response from the Dennis himself. Dennis thanks so much, so far nothing I’ve cooked has failed to exceed my expectations.
  13. First things first I’ve been so busy enjoying this Big bad I’ve not done any reviews yet! I’m having a Crack at my first brisket tomorrow and just want to make sure im setting up correctly I've got these 2 deflectors ( first pic) I’ve been placing directly on top of the basket - but I am wondering if they are supposed to sit on top of the lower grate? Drip tray ontop. Or which is better... lastly, I've got these 2 other deflectors that came with the big bad, not sure where they get used, under the pizza stone?
  14. Update: slow going , was away for work butcse’re Unboxed now! this weekend looks set for first cook.
  15. So just a few more months (8) waiting and we’re ready to lift this thing in place so I can actually use it before I’m over it. To say I’m over building - an understatement. Total weight lifts was 800kgs so a little ++ on the cost side, first crane failed but managed to score a 2nd once before the 8hour lift permit expired - in anycase she’s up - unbox tomoz and a first cook this weekend , not sure what yet with burning to follow the weekend after.
