  1. Thanks great find! Congrats. I’ve been unlucky in finding one. Had a member here “sell” me his and then back out at the last minute. Guess that just means I’m due some good luck! Congrats on the cabinet, looks like a nice one.
  2. Confused? Is this sold or still for sale? I’ve been trying to get a cabinet but the shipping costs have delayed that. If this is sold but there’s another out there, I’m interested. Thks
  3. Thank for all the great ideas. I did a one minute turn 90 deg, flip 2 minute and adjust based on desired finish. NY strips were about 1.5” thick and turned out great. Temping was tougher than usual even with the thermapen one. Great results and beautiful grill marks
  4. It’s a good idea, did t think of that, but I have 10 steaks to works with for tomorrow night!
  5. I’ve made many KK steaks, but never 10 at once. Curious what steak set up and temps you use. Which grills etc. steak is thick cut NY strip, sear and serve is my typical meathod. thanks
  6. If you are curious about the unboxing, I did take a video of the most beautiful color/tile combo: the Cobalt blue pebble!!!
  7. Here's a video I made of the Billows. I'm an old Big Green Egg guy and have used a few of these. This one takes the cake, but the air vol is an issue as others have said. Too much air for a KK. This is a big part of what the video is about.
  8. I have a few KK videos new owners should check out and help with maintaining your KK. If you want some 32BB There’s a complete tour here,
  9. @johnnymnemonic looks like you figured it out. I personally apply sparingly trying to keep as much on the grout lines vs tiles. But with my Cobalt pebble, the parts that do dry on the tiles I have been able to scrape off with my fingernail or a damp micro fiber cloth. It was easy. For application I applied while the grill was hot bc that's when those pin holes are open. As the grill is just beginning to cool off from HOT, so still hot but not screaming hot that's when I apply. As Dennis said, these are tiny little holes, but staying on it will keep you in grilling shape for life Glad you got her figured out.
  10. Some tips from my experience with my 32". Agree with all the comments Ive seen here.
  11. Both the Slicer and the meat rack were from Cabelas, but both can be found easily on Amazon. The slicer is the cheapest consumer grade slicer you can buy. But i use it only to slice meat for beef jerky and to slice bacon once its cured and smoked. With such a narrow and infrequent use, consumer grade is just fine for me so far. Thanks for the tip for future videos, I will be better about describing equipment used, especially since I have received several questions. Thanks for the support!
  12. One last comment, I did find "DEALS" of KKs that were not maintained. That's not a deal. Like a Ferrari, a KK requires maintenance to run optimally. Its so easy, but I've seen neglected grills in my search. Water is always the culprit. Here's a video I did on venting (getting rid of water or solvent in your grill on my You Tube channel.
  13. PWK5017 I'm cut from the same "slightly used" cloth you are. I took about a 5 yr journey to finally having the most beautiful KK (Cobalt Pebble). I did nation-wide CraigsList searches regularly and found a few. Inevitably one of three factors killed the deal. 1) The price: The price being asked was rarely worth the hassle of assessing condition, etc., BUT, and its a big but Everyone once in a while a unicorn would show up, just have your case monies ready to go! 2) The logistics: The more I got close to pulling the trigger on this, the more I realized its a royal pain. The Crate this thing comes in is heavy duty. You dont have to build a crate, but at minimum you have to stabalize the grill and put a box under it to help carry all that weight 3) The choices: I'm a picky bastard, and having all the stars line up is a lot to ask for, even if you're a lucky guy. The rest of the story: COVID helped me bank some cash and hand it over to Dennis with a smile on my face. This isnt a grill or a tool, its a lifestyle and one I get enjoyment out of. Same reason i have motorcycles So this guy got a new 32" because I find it to be the most versatile size. Cook on. Oscar
  14. Murph27: Yes Bacon is on my short list. Its a little like making beef jerky in that your friends and family will be a little amazed at your results. I've made bacon many times, in fact its one of the reasons I bought the slicer. So I came to KK from Big Green Egg (XL and MiniMax, which I still have) and the Smokey Mountain Cooker before that. I've made jerky many times on the XL egg, but with the KK, it will be my new go to. Why drive a Cadillac when you have a Rolls in the garage! Temp is a little tricky for me on the KK going low like this. I'm new to KK, but very familiar with Kamado cooking. The greater mass to heat soak means patience to allow the grill to reach temp in a manner that will make maintaining the 175 temp easy. I do have the cold smoking attachment, but jerky needs more temp to render the meat. I actually have not used the cold smoker yet, but plan to smoke some fish when my dad gets back into Indianapolis. Thanks for the Question. Lastly a favor. I'm trying to grow this You Tube Channel as a source for good information on You Tube for KKs specifically, and Kamados in general. There's lots of misinformation on you tube and with all the new KK grillers out there, this can be a problem. I have chatted with Dennis many times to make sure I have the right information and there are certainly many details to get right. Please help me with a like and subscribe. It helps grow the channel with the right info so that comes up to searchers. You are all the best. Thanks Oscar
