  1. Many thanks all for the kind complements. Using the KK is way more engaging for sure! Not just the food, but the cooking process itself.
  2. I have been planning on writing this review for the past two years I just have never been able to make the time. I’m not big on writing reviews but I decided I would go ahead and do that now I’m thinking about it. I have been thinking about getting a Komodo probably for the past three years, and once I decided to build a pool and a new outdoor area I figured this was the time to make the investment. Like most people I reached out to Dennis and he was very responsive yen answering all my questions and trying to figure out what works best for the area I was putting together. One part of the conversation that was especially notable was when I told him what the design of my outdoor area looked like and how I had to make space for a 42 inch gas grill. He laughed and asked what I wanted the gas grill for, ‘are you going to be storing stuff in there?’ And I remember thinking well that’s arrogant or someone who is very confident in his product. Delivery went smoothly as can be expected, the grill is super heavy as you all know, installation in my outdoor area was a massive undertaking with a platform being designed to accommodate the weight. So two years in what’s my conclusion? Boy what a waste of money. Specifically what a waste of $7000 for my 42 inch Alfresco gas grill. I probably use the gas grill once every 50 or 60 times I go outside to grill. In fact I’m fairly certain the last time I use the gas grill, coronavirus wasn’t even a thing. I think I would have probably been much happier with a much smaller gas grill for resale purposes, and the largest Komodo I could fit in my space. so what do I use my gas grill for you may wonder? The pictures tell the story and I’m not even making this up……….. sigh.…… Merry Christmas everyone.
  3. Anyone know which smart fire adapter is required for KK?
  4. Thanks all, I appreciate the insights!. I'll reach out to Dennis as well. Good question TonyB, I was right in the middle of a pool build when it arrived so I had absolutely no room in my backyard / patio area. It sat crated in the garage until yesterday!
  5. Hi all, I took delivery of my 22 TT about 3 months ago but am just now getting my out door kitchen built. The 22 TT will be built in to the island on an appropriately braced 12inch platform. The builder wants to know if there will be any heat transfer from the cooker to the granite base of the platform possibly cracking the granite. If that's to be expected, he wants to place some sort of non conducting barrier between the base of the cooker and the granite - flat travertine pavers or something similar. Does anyone know if heat transfer from the base of the KK is something significant to be worried about? I've reached to Dennis also to get his thoughts, waiting to hear back. Thanks!
  6. This is what I'm planning. I anticipate a width of 30 inches would fit the rotisserie. Either way the grill will be here before works starts on the kitchen so there will be time to measure and re-measure.
  7. How did you resolve your conundrum? I am in a similar situation and am having my builder build the Komodo platform to protrude 6 inches out from the rest of the counter which will be the typical 30 inches. I'm fine with the bump out since the platform will only be 12 inches high anyway. Was either that or make the counter 36 inches deep, which would have caused all kinds of problems with aligning my vent hoods over the cooking surfaces.
