    Nice Kamado! I have the original classic and it has been an excellent grill. What’s the plan for the first cook on it?

    Nice,

    Did you hire Viking to guard the egg or did he volunteer?
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    There are three things that give a man a false sense of courage, a keyboard, alcohol and a firearm.

    I'll have to look into that. I ran out of lighter fluid a few times, so I had to haul out the roofing torch it worked pretty good.

    I was amazed at what a few sheets of newspaper could do. Get the biggest they have you will not be disappointed. I use them for wood and charcoal.

    Some folks say to drizzle a little cooking oil on the paper, I never have used oil on the paper.
    I've been distracted for a few minutes and come back to find my charcoal roaring :D

    Might be the altitude, but my chimney takes a while to get going, and i definitely use some oil or bacon grease on the paper.

    I love my original KJ Classic. Looks like they made quite a few improvements: cart, lid latch, top vent, etc. Are you using the Bellows from Thermoworks?

    No I have the FireBoard 2 Drive with their proprietary fan. Works awesome.
    But yeah that have made some killer updates. One of the main reasons I switched from BGE to the KJ

    Congrats. I have the KJ Classic II and love it. Do you have a Joetisserie yet? If not, I think they are well worth the cost. It is my most used accessory.

    Not yet. Between the Joe, accessories and FireBoard, I was spent for the time being.
    I do want that and the Dojoe also.

    Kamado grills do use real wood, lump oak charcoal with your choice of smoking wood is normally what they run on.

    I love that hand pounded (?) exterior of the Kamado grill.

    It's definitely not hand pounded. It's a high heat kiln fired ceramic material all the way through with a high heat glaze on the exterior.
