    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
  3. 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
  5. 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
  6. I was playing it conservative so went foil - will definitely wrap in paper next time!
  7. 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
  8. Unbelievable! A response from the Dennis himself. Dennis thanks so much, so far nothing I’ve cooked has failed to exceed my expectations.
  9. 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?
  10. Update: slow going , was away for work butcse’re Unboxed now! this weekend looks set for first cook.
  11. 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.
  12. Got my first peak at the big bad after removing one side of the cardboard. While limited, it is was enough to see this thing is absolutely immaculate. I literally broke Dennis’ balls on which exact cobalt blue tiles I wanted - and after given him plenty of contradictory requests - I can see that they are perfect! Even in a crate, covered in cardboard , in darkness, through plastic wrap I can see that it is level upon level above a kamado Joe and the like. It’s going to get a lot of wtf is that comments just on people seeing it - let’s hope I do it justice on the cooking side of things. is it large? Very. Is it perfectly large? Definitely. Worst thing now is I have to wait until the project catches up on schedule. #firstsightofaKK
  13. Well, the big bad arrived today. I was struck down with food poisoning the night before - so will take a trip to our building site tomorrow and then it’s about 3 weeks before the beast gets craned up to the 3rd floor terrace!
  14. Okay, so following a stiff drink to wash away the import duties, taxes $1400AUD I am set for delivery this Friday. im definitely all in now.
  15. My wife’s 30 weeks pregnant with our 2nd and concerned I’m more excited about the delivery of our Big Bad. I have to admit I’m a little preoccupied. Now it’s not true I’m excited for both it’s just the KK arrives in 15 days and the baby in 56 days. Reasonable I’d say. Below are the photos, apparently same kk so not sure the true color but happy with either.ill be back soon..
