  1. Color is the hardest choice especially because it really is personal preference. Nobody is going to tell you one over the other (except for team bronze) because they are all amazing, especially when seen in person. Pick your color with certainty over all else. After you order you are going to have a few months of anxious and exciting wait time, where you’ll dive deep into this forum and others, end up spending more than your wanted on accessories both from KK or another party, and ultimately build your excitement for delivery day. You don’t want to taint that experience by ogling other colors, second guessing yourself and creating buyers remorse for something you don’t even have yet. It will be a waste of your time and nerves, because no matter what you end up with you will love. The ooos and ahhhs at other colors and how good they look never goes away. It is why we all are genuinely excited for each new owner on the forum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 100% agree [email protected] here. I don’t own it, but by design alone, I think you can expect a better more flexible cooking vessel with the 22”. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m about 7 months in and I use my double bottom more than my cold smoker. For the cold smoker, I think it really depends if you plan to use the smoker pot, wood direct, or you want the cold smoker to use for your longer smokes. If you only plan to use it for cold smokes, I wouldn’t call it a must have. I mostly use a smoker pot for smoking. I like the cold smoker, but it really only works well with pellets or very small wood chips (I use the small Weber ones often, Dennis’s small coffee would too but I have to chop that down a bit for it to stay lit). Double bottom on the other hand, I use as my drip pan for almost all of my long smokes. Line it with foil for easy clean up, but it really helps keep things clean in the smoker besides the pan itself for me. I also cook veggies in it under some indirect cooks at times. And have used it in conjunction with my cheap Amazon vertical spikes for al pastor and shawarma. Downside to both…they are a pain in the ass to clean. Cold smoker because the residue makes it stick together and tough to take apart sometimes and it has some hard to clean spaces. Double bottom just because the size of it. Id probably use my double bottom even more if I had an easier way to clean it. I have a tub it fits in perfectly for a good soak, so I can’t even say I don’t have a good method, but it becomes an outdoor thing with a hose and tub for me. Anything I can’t wash in the sink, I consider a pain in the ass. All of that said. I have both and I use both. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Good shout tony b! That could have gone very wrong, very quickly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’ve run mine in the rain without issues but I had it sitting under a side table. It got wet and did not die on me. I wouldn’t expect the air pump is waterproof and you could run into issues, but in KK land it is probably one of the cheapest things to replace too. To avoid the pain of getting another, the ziploc bag approach is probably a good move. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’m not a food and safety scientist but this is what USDA guidelines are cooked food sitting at room temperature is in what the USDA calls the “Danger Zone,” which is between 40°F and 140°F. In this range of temperatures, bacteria grows rapidly and the food can become unsafe to eat, so it should only be left out no more than two hours. https://www.fsis.usda.gov/food-safety/safe-food-handling-and-preparation/food-safety-basics/leftovers-and-food-safety (Go to - Keep Food out of the "Danger Zone") Whether you follow it or not…to each his own. But in the spirit of sharing best practices, I find it important to mention. Have I eaten food that has sat out longer than this and been okay? Definitely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Little trick I learned when I was going through the same…there is an “all” collection that has a lot of factory pictures of previously purchased grills. It takes a bit of scrolling but gives you a decent idea of what a number of different shades and grills look like in real life, some in different light, etc. if I were in your seat, I’d be all over the terra blue peoples that Dennis just started offering. No buyers remorse in my vibrant blue but those terra blue colors and in pebble form are damn sexy to my eyes. But to each his/her own. https://komodokamado.com/collections/all Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’ve found that for brisket, the rest is more important than the cook in terms of texture/tenderness. For butts, I haven’t found it makes as much a difference, but I always aim to rest at least a couple hours. Careful when resting though, even in a cooler. You do not want it to rest below the critical temp where bacteria can start to grow. Even in a yeti, rule of thumb is no longer than 4 hours to make sure it stays above that. Anything longer, throw in the oven at 180-200 and keep it wrapped (yes in the towel too) to be on the safe side. Some people will say they’ve kept it in a cooler longer, 6 or even 8 hours without going below temp. But if that is your plan, make sure to have a wireless temp monitor on hand. We are all at home cooks…so we’d probably serve it anyway. But there’s a definitely a gray area of risk between following the guidelines for food safety, it’ll probably be okay, and your guests actually getting sick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I’m a tile guy, but the new pebble options may be too good to pass on. Selfishly, I also want to see a couple of them with finished products. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I buy it. I can’t even say it is from some fancy or local establishment, just Sam’s Club. With a little doctoring it is good enough for me. Sometimes I buy from a local Indian restaurant too, but usually for curries and not wraps. Breads is pretty much where I draw my line in cooking so far. I haven’t found it to be worth the time for me. Only so many hours in a day, and a lot of very good substitute options for a reasonable price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yes, Chicken Shawarma. No spike or trombo king this time. Have used that method with good success, but today I went straight on the lower grill. Equally delicious and a bit different flavor profile with the nice fire kissed char. I also use naan over pita. Just personal preference, but always give that a nice grill too.

  12. Chicken Shawarma tonight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. @C6Bill Do you cook it in pan on the stone first and then pull it for the final crisp? Love a good DSP Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Nice cooks everyone! Entirely too many to call out individually, but plenty of examples why this is the best forum…now I’m hungry!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. As I understand it, the purpose of the holes on the bottom in the other method is to ensure the smoke travels through the fiery coals to “burn off” any of the bad smoke before it gets to the food. In this case, if you have it under the basket, I don’t know why you couldn’t just have the holes up. Flipping it upside down or even just using a more traditionally sold rectangular smoker box for gar grills, etc. that lies flat on the bottom of the KK. Love the idea. Let us know how it goes.
