  1. I was one of those very lucky folks who found a gently used KK, as soon as it was posted, I jumped and was the lucky new owner. The great thing for me was it had everything I wanted, was the size, had pebbles (yes they cook better than tiles :)) and the color I wanted. It only took ~8 years for the one I wanted to "pop up". So I got incredibly lucky, saved a little money, but if you want a specific size/color/pebble/tile combo, the chances of that exact KK coming along is pretty slim, you would be better off just ordering what you wanted. If you do find one close at hand, here is how I moved mine: Moving a KK Regards. Bruce.
  2. Hmmm, takes 3 tiled KKs to replace 2 pebbled KKs, Dennis may be on to something
  3. Me too, a lot of build up for Meh… I think it’s interesting that they didn’t retire the classic and replace it with the MK4, but my guess is there is not enough differentiation between the new model and the MK4. Regards
  4. When I light extruded charcoal, I bring out the big gun!
  5. I use one of those cane style weed burners with a 1lb propane canister. I hit a few areas of the basket, close the kk, open the top hat and pull out the bottom door and let the kk do its thing! While the kk is coming to temp (15 to 30 minutes depending on desired temp), I will go prep the meal, then adjust the kk for desired temp. That is my typical path for grilling. For low and slow, I overfill with extruded and light one or two small areas, once the kk is around 175, I adjust the Kk to my low and slow settings and let heat soak for an hour+. Regards
  6. My wife informed me that I will be buried in my KK, so I'm adding the cost of a coffin as part of the ROI, based on that, I'm now ahead of the curve!
  7. I think the inspectors want to see the latest colors and builds and gauge the availability of coco char...seriously, they could just call Dennis to find that out and not hold up deliveries!
  8. Since we know Dennis likes to over engineer thing, I imagine he will come up with a v shaped bottom with an auger system to move the ashes out of the front of the KK. I imagine he would work some kind of gear mechanism run off of the roti motor. Thinking some form of teak knob on the shifter that shifts from roti to augur mode. I think we would see it first on the OMG52 or possibly on the WTF102, but not on the LOL1002 as that will have the revolutionary walk in ash room with the in the wall vac system.
  9. Make sense, buckshot adds an off taste and is hell on the teeth!
  10. Well I guess I can stop chuckling over the imagined call Dennis took for that sale: (imagine vocal fry voice) hello Dennis, my name is Kim, I’m a social media influencer and I have a business proposition for you...
  11. Good find! isn’t the difference between the Kk and the K7 amazing, you really can’t grasp the difference until you see a KK live. enjoy!
  12. So with a name like that I'm guessing some tried and true Texas saying will be heard in your backyard...like: "He needed cooking Paw" (He needed Killing Paw) "Three pounds went in, Two came out" (Three went out, two came back) "This patio isn't big enough for the two of us" (This "Insert location" ain't big enough for the two of us" And of course, if you grill Tofu "Get a rope" (Get a rope) Enjoy the Texan, keeping with the theme, when you get a 42, you can name it the "Big Texan"! Regards.
  13. Shame about overshooting your target temperature, wouldn’t have happened if you had bought pebbles instead of square tiles...🤪 great looking ribs!
  14. When Troble asked about Tekobo’s freezer, why did I immediately picture this?
  15. So do you cook them direct or indirect?
  16. I'm using a BBQ Guru Competitor, have since 2002/2003ish, echo everything here as far as set and forget. When this thing dies, I will end up with what ever version of DigiQ is around at that time as I don't need internet access, just a simple reliable fan controller. With the competitor, I used it all the time with my POSK, have only used it once with the KK when I had a deadline and couldn't afford any issues. All of the other briskets I've done on the KK I've just set the top and bottom dampers and come back when the temp probe tells me it's done. Regards.
  17. The gravel path looks like it has a slope away from the house, you will probably want one person keeping it from drifting to that side and falling off the path. Slow and easy is the way to do it!
  18. I watched a few more of his cooking videos, i think they were intended to get folks who don’t cook cooking. I liked the simplistic way he explained the process for a variety of Italian pasta dishes, pretty much buy groceries, chop up stuff, throw it in a bowl, throw it in a pan, boil some pasta, throw it together, eat. He didn’t get lost in technique, spices, specialized pans, knives or other sellable sponsored minutia, just very simple steps to make something tasty. if you think about it he spends 3 minutes on something the “food” networks would spend 15 ~ 20 on. For me, once you get used to his patter, the f bombs fade into the background. Overall, I enjoyed them
  19. Yep that’s a old POSK, I don’t recall if the #5 or #3 came that way or if it was a special order. watch out when opening the lid as without the legs for stability they can fall over backwards. regards
  20. Looks like the KK is 26" wide (not including any mounting brackets etc.), If you go to the main KK site, Dennis has the line drawings in the pictures of the 23" (last one). Another thing to watch for is the dimensions with the lid open (37") vs with the lid closed (31"~32.25" depending on handle incl or not.) The link below takes you directly to the 23" line drawing with dimensions. KK drawing with dimensions Regards.
  21. To paraphrase Dennis, his original design used square drive sockets both inside and out, there was an issue where the roti would reach a point in the spin and roll forward an inch or so. To Dennis, this was unacceptable and he redesigned it with hex drives on the inside but kept the outside square so that one grill motors could be used. which one do you need? Call Dennis, he will quickly tell you what you need, or you can look inside your grill...calling Dennis will be more fun and rewarding! The difference between the spit and cradle..the spit is a rod you pass through the meat and then hold the meat in place via the tines on the spit, much like every rotisserie you probably saw as a child (but massively over engineered as only Dennis can) the cradle is a cradle on one side and the open side has arms that close over the meat to secure the meat inside the cradle. You set the meat in, then swing the arms down onto the meat which secures the meat from falling out of the open side of the cradle. If you look at the pictures on the main website (for the 23), you can see the difference between the two. I have the cradle, I find it easy to use and I also use PBW to clean it. Since I do a lot of roasts and very few chickens I like the basket for both. If I did mostly chickens I would probably prefer the spit. Give Dennis a call, all you questions will be answered. Regards
  22. I call mine "Daaaaaaammmnnn", since that's what everyone who sees my KK calls her!
  23. Dennis has also mentioned starting with the meat straight out of the fridge, do a search for the thread, but as I recall it creates a better smoke ring.
  24. Not low and slow, but if you want to freak folks out, cook a simple chicken breast, it will probably be the most moist chicken you have ever eaten! Folks typically have not seen the amount of moisture that comes out of a fully cooked KK chicken breast before. For low and slow a simple pork butt is an easy starting point that doesn't disappoint.
  25. If the pavers are well set and basically level, then the KK should roll over it, just take care. The KK rolls well, if the plywood is level (or slight left/right incline) one person can do it, but always safest to have two, one to push, one to guide. Just take it slow and easy and you shouldn't run into any issues. Don't use the handle to pull or push from the top, you don't want to tweak anything.
