  1. The best thing about owning a KK is the community of KK users. This is a really cool thing to read. I will share as much as I can and continue to participate here. I cannot say enough about this community of people. This has to be the best product on earth to bring together such great people.
  2. I hope so too - you should let us know when you have a model to look at. I'm sure I'm not the only KK fan who likes to geek out on grills, if not own multiple types.
  3. @DavidMcKay The KK "looks" ceramic. It would be a little pedantic if this forum were renamed to the Komodo Kamado grill/smoker/oven "Refractory Cement Forum". Scientifically there seems to be a debate on a google search. Refractory material IS ceramic, I *think*. But most ceramics are not refractory. Here's a page I found that may be useful. https://www.refractoriesinstitute.org/tri-pages/tri-what-are-refractories.asp. First sentence "Refractories are ceramic materials...". I would pardon the snobbery a little bit from this crowd. We have expensive taste and we ordered the "bugatti of Kamados". Most Kamado grills are the equivalent of clay pots. In fact my father-in-law's 26 year old BGE looks like it is made out of a brick like material. He has a chip in his and it's red brown in color just like a brick. He got his while they were still made in USA. Mine's white-ish. More cheaply made, much younger (only about 11 1/2 years old). Made in Mexico, it says on my plate setter. Anyway, the KK is made of refractory material, heavily insulated, etc. It's a BIG difference. I'm still waiting on mine, but I'm stoked. I coveted one of these things for 10+ years - now I have a 42"SBB only a couple weeks out. Anyway - I'm with you - splitting hairs about the word "ceramic" is unnecessary. Just get a KK.
  4. @Newbie1925I am assuming your 42SBB has been stuck in the same container ship as mine. If so, the ship is docked. I think it's a couple weeks out now. Getting excited?
  5. Long Beach port congestion is still ongoing. Really unreal. The ship was in the vicinity something like 12 days ago and has been at anchor for 9. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. It is crazy! I am so glad my KK is anchored at port though. It will get here eventually. The situation is much more worrisome for supply chains than end customers. It is also fascinating. Boats can’t even anchor and are just milling about out there. Might eventually make international news like the suez situation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I'm going to keep it all if I can @MacKenzie @tony b. I should have space somewhere to keep it so that I can rebuild it for moving. (I don't anticipate moving any time soon but I also do not ever anticipate parting with my KK). My KK is still stuck at anchor off long island. I'm looking forward to posting a deluge of pictures.
  8. I cannot wait for my KK. Y'all are making me hungry
  9. it's a money clip type thing (nope it is a hell of a lot bigger than that now that I look at the picture). No clue.
  10. Bet it was great. Made me hungry thinking about it. There's something about chuck roast and the way it falls apart. Each smoky little morsel is so good. I've since learned to smoke a decent brisket, and there are always giant hunks of heaven in a good brisket. But I really like the little ribbons of smoky meat that a chuck roast makes. mmmmm
  11. +1 on doing it like a brisket. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Holy moly, what a thread. So glad to discover it on Labor Day Sunday morning. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Came up with the name for my 42 when it gets here. "Deep Thought". I bet a couple people on this forum will get that, instantly.
