Re: Dragon repairs

if the loose side/nut is from the lifting tray (lift and wheel kamado),
you can move the legs/wheels from the LHS to the RHS (or vice-versa),
so the lifting can be done by the good tray. (make sure the nuts
attaching the tray to the body are tight before using).

Re: Crackling Sheets

Ages since I've done those, but, from memory you have to get the fat to run off the skin, not pool in the scores. if you can picture a normal pork roast, the skin on one side is almost on the grate, then up and over the meat, almost to the grate on the other side of the meat. you need to replicate t...

Re: How much do you open your vents for low n slow?

If you use your bbq like this: - start with a full load of charcoal - extinguish fire when finished - top up charcoal next bbq - repeat several times over following bbq's you will likely end up with lots of little bits of charcoal finding their way down to the bottom of the pile, and this generally ...

Re: First time buyer

for starting out, I'd recommend the Akorn/Dragon - you don't have to worry about damaging the ceramics, as they are metal (but they do rust over time). The Akorn and Dragon are almost the same, usually about $500, but the Akorn comes with a couple of extra accessories that are almost necessary. BBQ ...

Re: Unable to adjust flame on bbq?

is it all the flames that have no control, or just 1 or 2?

My Apollo 'rear burner' and 'smoker box burner' are either
full on, or off. perhaps 1 or 2 of your burners are the same.

Re: Cast Iron Grate - Weber Go Anywhere

There was a vendor on this site that sold them, but did mention
in 2015 that they're no longer available.

I've seen a number of posts that use 'Grill Grates' - they
just sit on top. BBQ Galore sell them now, and they come in
varying sizes/lengths

In the 2nd linked video, you'll notice he has a bit of difficulty getting the steak to release from the grate, after cooking for about a minute, whereas grill grates leave the steak cook...
