I have been reading a lot on the forum and it has been a great source of information. Thanks to all for sharing it help the process. :-)

I look forward to joining the club and hopefully make great food.

I will be sure to share pictures. 🙂

First cook. 🤔

Any good suggestions? Thing it will be something simple to get to know the new grill. 
 

For sure the duck will go on for Christmas. And I need to do a practice run with a chicken or 2. 

Today i have a primo xl and a joe jr. so this will be a big step up  👍

You have a good foundation cooking on those grills. The transition to the KK won't be that dramatic. You already understand the basic principles of airflow = temperature. You will just have to get used to the new top vent settings for specific temps (bottom vent is not critical as long as the fuel is getting enough air.) The other thing will be that the KK takes quite a bit longer to heat soak, but is much more stable than those grills once up and going. 

First cook should be something in your wheelhouse that you've done a lot of - pork butts, ribs, spatchcocked chicken, whatever it might be. Wouldn't recommend a packer cut brisket as your first cook!

Welcome Lars! 

I get a tingly feeling just remembering KK delivery and uncrating day, make sure you take lots of pictures, we all love to see them, but its surprising how often I personally look back at those pictures and fond memories.

Make sure you've got something to cook during the burn-in process, i didn't cook anything and i regret wasting all of that heat.

Most importantly, enjoy the whole experience, it really is something else uncrating and setting up your KK, pictures really don't do them justice.

Talking to Dannis and burn-in not needed on the new models. Just out of the box and start cooking. 😀

Kinda sad actually - the burn-in was a "rite of passage" for KK owners.

Consider it a trophy Tony for going the extra mile. Have to say that the added prep on Dennis's part saves him alot of phone time and his customers,.. peace of mind.

No burn-in?!! I bought a used 23 KK and still did the burn-in. It was just the right thing to do. Welcome to the forum @Lars.

I can see from the comments that a burn-in is needed to join the club 😂

The day is finally here and it was just delivered. 

 

It is on a EU pallet. Do you guys think I need to extend the ramp? Or how is the rolling of experience?

Unpacking til be in 6h.... Can't wait 😀

Yes it was perfect timing. 🙂

Unpacking went well. I modified the ramp to be sure to get it down i one peas.

Waw I am impressed seeing and using this thing for the first time. 

@DennisLinkletter what a product you have created!!! 
 

Here is pictures from yesterday. I had good help from my son and father. 

Simple but very testy burgers.
